My grandson loves to go to teppanyaki. We usually go to Osaka by Superstition Springs mall, but they were booked so we thought we would try Ah-So. The service was good and all the staff were very friendly. The food was your normal teppanyaki fare-very good. There was a couple things though that I was disappointed about that makes me... More

Great sushi and the homemade salad dressing is amazing. The teriyaki chicken was not so great however the fried rice was amazing.

Great teppanyaki and what some have figured out, great sushi as well. The chefs are great, funny, entertaining and yes they can play with fir unlike those other guys! LOL. The fried rice is awesome, can't say enough good things about this place. The only knock is sometimes it can get a little warm, I am good! :)

I've wanted to come here for years and finally got around to it. I didn't realize it is a Sushi Bar and Teppanyaki restaurant. For a Saturday early evening the tables were packed and the smell was lovely walking in the doors. We didn't need anything fancy so when opted for Sushi. We were the only ones. Which is nice...

The place was not packed but seemed busy enough for a Saturday night. Absolutely everything took forever. We had to request our salads and soups after a long wait. After an hour or so when everyone finished their meals, my mom had to cancel her sushi order because it still hadn't been filled although patrons that arrived at least 30-45... More

We went for New Year's eve family meal celebration and the food was okay but did not blow us away. Teppanyaki was decent. The sushi was good for the most part.

We used to love this little place.. :( sad that the quality of the sushi has gone way down... This was our little go fix, to close to home. We love sushi and have eaten in many a sushi rest. All over the USA and in other countries as well. We also tried the Tepan Grill side the for the... More

Very friendly staff and good sushi! Took my young kids here on a Sunday afternoon so it wasn't crowded. They were extremely good to accommodate the kids with modified chopsticks, etc. After our meal one of the sushi chefs spent some time entertaining the kids with a few "magic" tricks. Moderately priced and decent quality. Great experience!
