We had dinner last week and they were able to put us in with short notice. Dinner was great with good portion. Sushi and sashimi were great with the seafood/rice cooked in hotpot the highlight of the dinner. We will go back again next week.

The Teppanyaki bar was fantastic, the chef was fun and made the preparation of food so exciting, our 7 and 9 year old boys had the best time - catching omelette in their mouths and rice in bowls! The food was delicious and very resasonable!

Our chef Tatsu was certainly a veteran of entertaining groups on the teppanyaki grill. The group of 12 was always laughing and eating. Service was great and the food was faultless.
