We went on a Sunday at 5pm. We were the only customers in the place which was a little strange. Pretty decor in the sushi area but we had a small hibachi table. Ordered the yakitori appetizer, not really worth the $6 price tag because they put 2 skewers with 4 little pieces of meat on each skewer and added zucchini which my husband won't eat. But the flavor was very good!
We both had hibachi chicken. We left with another full meal of leftovers! They give noodles and rice which can be a bit heavy. We both had 2 chicken breasts each and they give 2 free shrimp per person. The food had a really good taste and the price was reasonable. We would go back if we are in this area again! It was nice having a quiet dinner to ourselves!

Went there for grandson's birthday and the whole family had a great time. Best Japanese I've had in a long time. The chef was very entertaining and had everyone (kids and adults) cracking up. Prices are reasonable.

The restaurants has two sides: hibachi and sushi. I've been here several times as I'm a local, and I've sat on the hibachi side every time. All the chefs are good and friendly. The food is impeccable. It's always too much to finish in one sitting, and it heats up just fine for lunch the next day. The cooking routine is the same with every chef so after seeing the same thing every time, I would be okay with sitting on the sushi side if hibachi was too busy or full. BONUS: it has a nice interior that you wouldn't expect given its location.

If you are looking for good sushi in Carlisle, this is the place to go. We get mostly takeout from here but you can also go in and sit at the bar, or sit on the right side of the restaurant (which is okay, but the atmosphere isn't the best.) The left side is the Japanese steakhouse where you can get the full Hirabachi experience, which is always fun. However we usually go here for the sushi. Also, it's BYOB.

Located at the end of an ordinary strip shopping plaza, it is nicely decorated and divided into two separate dining areas: one the traditional hibachi steakhouse, the other traditional sushi and california rolls. We dined in the latter this trip because it was Friday evening and there was a wait for the Hibachi. Had excellent Bento box with Teriyaki Salmon. They don't have a liquor license but you can bring a wine bottle and they will pour at no charge, and there is a sate store in the same strip mall where you can get the wine. Ah Pennsylvania!
