I've had dinner here several times. Every time the service has been excellent, the staff very friendly, the Sushi is FANTASTIC. If you are not drinking Sake, the house tea has an awesome flavor.

Place not really friendly and food was average. Eadable but not very tasty. My beef was more or less tasteless and my friend's teriyaki chicken was good but nothing special. All in all average

We had the Teppanyaki dinner and our chef was great. Had to pay extra for fried rice which was not worth it. We did not get that much food for our main meal. The worst of it we left hungry and our bill was $80.00...More
