We had several problems that just seemed weird. 1. They didn't have ranch dressing. 2. They didn't have ice tea as a drink option. Over the food was fine but I think the food at Ohana is a better quality.

I enjoy the sushi boat, the chef is very good in his preparation. I ate until I could not eat any more.

We recently came here for a celebration of our son going to the state wrestling tournament. Our friends stated that we had to try the rolls. We order other food as well. I have to say from a first time experience, the food was really good. We ordered yum rolls, tempura, dragon rolls, and firecracker. The flavor was good. The... More

Great lunch under $10. Wide selection of rolls. Want to explore those. I had the bento box. Plenty of food. Service was fast and we had a large group of 8 people separate tickets. Very nice restaurant. Large salt water fish tank. All around pleasant experience.

This has been our birthday spot three years running. It's lower cost than the other two teppanyaki restaurants in town and usually lower key.

I'm sort of at a loss on reviewing Taki. The ambiance is nice, the service was fine. But I ordered Sukiyaki and, well, it wasn't right. The sauce flavor was spot on, but udon noodles? Steak was cut too think, the vegetables were not cut in the Japanese manner, s o the overall effect was more of a clunky version... More

This one of our families go to spots. We love the sushi. All my girls are very finicky eaters and would never try anything new. One of my daughters went with another family and loved it. Namassey is our favorite, but all we have had are great.

Great little restaurant in a strip mall just off of 86th street! Awesome ambiance, neatly decorated, and the food is to die for! The crab roll app is killer & the volcano roll is one of my all-time favs! SOOOOO GOOD! Miso soup is good and the ginger salad dressing is the bomb! ENJOY

We stop here every few months. We usually do sushi as you generally have to plan ahead a bit more for the teppanyaki but, we have had the teppanyaki and it's very good as well.
