Thursday--Arrived around 12:45, we were seated quickly. We are extremely familiar with Hibachi style restaurants. We were not given a sushi menu (we didn't ask), but they have a blue banner that says Sushi. Maybe because it was the lunch menu. Waiter did his job, food was cooked correctly. My group of 5 agrees that it lacked presentation. Overall, go,... More

Love, love this place. Yes it is pricey, but the entertainment and food are worth it. The tables hold about 10 people, so there is entertainment there also if you let yourself join in.

Japanese style restaurant that features a flashy, fire enhanced cooking demonstration, full of bad humor, and equally lacking in excitement quality food. Where else would you pay to have food tossed at you, while sitting uncomfortably ?

We've eaten here off and on for years. This experience was the best yet and far outweighs the other Japanese restaurant where food is concerned! Luis may not be Japanese but he is definitely the best with the food and the entertainment!!!! Other family members confirm that he is consistently the best. On an evening with a number of parties...

The cooks have plenty of experience and showmanship. The food is always really good. I'd recommend the filet and chicken.

The building appears to be really run down, but once you get in there to eat it is amazing! The food as absolutely the best. Like you could eat it everyday. We usually go on Sundays after church, and they get really busy. But it is well worth the wait.

My husband & I visited Inoko's when we were in school at UGA 20 years ago & loved the place. We returned this weekend with both of our daughters and nothing has changed, and I mean nothing! The place needs an update and a thorough cleaning. There was a strange smell that meets you at the door. The hibachi hoods... More

Made reservations for 7 people- we were Seated on time but took 30 minutes to START cooking??? Place was not busy- good food (enough sodium for 3 days...). Do not go if you have plans afterward.. Pushy about rushing you out - we were asked if we wanted to go boxes 10 minutes after food was plated...
