Hibachi grills are great fun, and I was excited to be able to share an experience with my children. We had to wait for a table (approx 45 min), but it was worth it. Not only was the "show" of the chef cooking in front of us fun and entertaining...the food was amazing too!

Teppanyaki with friends. Chefs are very entertaining. Food and drinks are great. My only complaint is the noise level made it really difficult to communicate with my friend sitting next to me.
