This is an unassuming little place in a strip of shops that includes a Goodwill and a lawn and Garden store. No Hibachi grill tables, but did have a tiny sushi bar. Hubby had the grilled snapper with veggies and I had strip steak with veggies. Everything prepared well. Large helpings. My steak was so tender and cooked exactly to... More

We went with a party of 6 or so and really enjoyed the food. We had hibachi chicken and noodles as well. They were sweet, but the chicken and noodles mixed with the rice was great! I would recommend this place for sure.

My wife and I live in Somerset and have been going there since it opened. There have been changes in staffing and management, but the food has stayed consistent. Great portions and taste. Of course, with a lot of staff changes, service is unpredictable, but we don't let that slow us down. The most recent staff has been fantastic!

The waitress could not answer any of our questions about the items on the menu, she said it was her first day. We placed our orders and she... More

You can easily share a dinner bento box and have plenty of food, but avoid the tempura chicken as it is dry, chewy and ours was cold. Also the salad is practically floating in water and is big non appetizing chunks.

I stopped by this restaurant while coming back home. I was hoping for a hibachi grill experience but didn't see it. Yet the service and food was excellent. We got our food extremely quickly. The spicy California roll was awesome!

I love Japanese cuisine, and I especially love Japanese food in my home town. I always get their Bento Box. Its like 12 bucks and I get so much stuff like sushi, chicken,rice, veggies, and other stuff. Its a great value for what you get. My all time favourite dish is the teriyaki chicken. It was the best! I love... More
