Overall the family enjoyed their experience. Staff was friendly and attentive. The menu was more affordable than similar restaurants. The chef needed to lighten up a little on the oil - he used oil and butter in combination. While the food had good flavor, it was a little heavier than I am used to.

I went to this restaurant with a group of eight people. We did make a reservation and got seated right away. Everyone enjoyed the food and the service. The price is about average for a place like this.

Best hibachi restaurant I've dined and I haven't been a fan in the past. Great family dining experience. Had the seafood hibachi and sushi. Both were superb. As we ate my wife and I were looking at each other as we took every bite. The food was that food. Will be returning again soon.

My family was visiting our daughter at UCF and this place was a nightmare. We specifically asked for wait staff familiar with food allergies and they sent us a clueless waitress. Cross contamination can be life threatening and multiple staff members did not realize flour was gluten. The gluten free soy sauce was horrible and full of chemicals bc I... More

We went here on Labor Day weekend to celebrate a family member's birthday. The reservation was for 5:30, we got seated at 5:45, we had our food orders taken at 6:30, and finally got our first course (soup) around 6:45. While we were waiting for our food, it took 20 minutes just to get a water glass refilled. Avoid this... More

We really enjoyed our dinner here. We were informed that it would be a wait time of 10-15 minutes. It ended up being less than 10. Service was outstanding. Andy was our server and David was our chef. Andy was on top of our every need and David really made the dinner he prepared in front of us a lot... More

My husband wanted beef and I love sushi, so this restaurant at 11609 E Colonial Drive, right around the corner from our hotel, seemed a perfect choice. Well, you can't hit the jackpot every time. We were both disappointed. The sushi was mediocre - I am positive at least the tuna had been previously frozen - the consistency was way... More
