Went in for some filet mignon hibachi. The atmosphere was very intimate and the staff was great! The food was really tasty, especially the fried rice! We will be heading back soon!

We were seated quickly. Food took a while to be cooked in front of us on the grill. They used quite a bit of "butter" while cooking. It was margarine actually. The chef was nice although he must of had an off night as his fancy handwork was off. Atmosphere was quite. They need to put some blinds in the... More

Food - excellent. Service - excellent. Wait time - sometimes kind of long, but worth it. Everyone we've taken here has been as pleased as we are, and very surprised that such a place is here in Las Cruces! James and his staff - great people. Wish they would relocate to the east end to make it closer for us!

My boyfriend and I go here all the time! The owner is actually one of the cooks and is super friendly, even when he's busy and obviously stressed out. He still takes the time to smile and say hello. And the other cooks and hosts are just as friendly. It's a happy environment in general. Now for the food..it's just... More

The food was great. We had the regular hibachi and also the sushi and both were great. Prices were good for a hibachi restaurant.

What a delightful dinner we enjoyed. I ordered hibachi scallops and my husband ordered hibachi shrimp. We began with the vegetable/shrimp tempura appetizer and were very pleased with a somewhat different approach to the preparation. It was delicious and just enough for us to share without spoiling our appetites for dinner. James, the grill master, was a good showman and... More

Chefs make up funny jokes while making your food. They're always nice and keep you entertained. Food is the bomb! Large amounts of food so make sure your hungry. You have to try at least once and you'll be hooked.

I fell in love with this hidden gem with in las cruses. The cook is amazing and food delicious. If you really like Asian food then this places is a must stop by. Not the Chinese buffets that are high in sodium. This places just became my favorite spot for lunch.

We have been here several times for both business and pleasure. The sushi is pretty good. The hibachi is fantastic! However both times the kitchen is very slow. It took 45 minutes to get appetizers. We have enjoyed our dinners here, it is just slow.
