We sat at the hibachi grill for a group gathering. The staff was friendly and quick to help. The hibachi chief was funny and entertaining. The drink waiter filled my drink all the time and it was never below 2/3 full at any time! Sushi rolls were expensive but good.

The only reason I didn't give this dinner 2 stars is because the service was very good. We ordered six different types of sushi to share among the three of us...Philadelphia, California, Red Bull, spicy scallop and two other unremarkable rolls. The rice was wet. Not heavy wet like a grocery store sushi, but overly wet instead of light. Out... More

Friday evening about 615- just starting the dinner crowd. Service was great, on time, and large portions too. I was very pleased all around with the service. The drink attendant was on top of things all evening. I would definitely recommend to anyone wanting hibachi!

Family friendly atmosphere, great entertainment at the hibachi grill. Medium and above price range. Delicious sushi, if you are into that. Lots of smiles from hosts and servers. They never allow your beverage glass to go empty.

Great service! Good food! Our hibachi chef was fantastic. Took the time to talk to us while cooking. Portions were huge. The starter soup was flavorful and actually had more than 1 mushroom shaving. The salads were nicely portioned and fresh. We had the teriyaki chicken and salmon dishes and were very tasty and cooked just right. None of our... More

The food here was delicious…..the best Hibachi Filet I have EVER had!! I was here for one week and ended up eating at this location 3 separate times! The service was excellent, the atmosphere was friendly, and all of the food was amazing!

Let me start by saying my sweet tea and the salad were the best part of the meal. The sushi is way over-priced and wasn't the best tasting. The meat in the Mongolian beef needs seasoning, just tasted like plain meat. Same way with the Szechuan meat, no flavor. Probably would not eat here again.
