We had so much fun. We had a great waiter, some of the people in our party tried sushi for the first time there. They liked it.

I know some people have had issues here, but I've always had a nice experience. It is the only teppanyaki style restaurant I know of in the immediate area. For us it's always been a "birthday/anniversary" dinner place.

I have never been to a Japanese style hibachi restaurant, so this is a new experience. I immediately noticed the facilities are showing their age and could use some decent lighting and a touch of paint. Our service was prompt and the waitstaff was very...More
