The food is just amazing. It is an entertaining way to eat and they don't fail to perform. We look forward to returning. The Salmon and shrimp was perfectly seasoned and cooked along with delicious soup, salad, and grilled veggies.

The ambience Was very nice. The menu also had many great options but not many vegetarian options. They also did not accommodate special request to make vegetarian sushi rolls. The price point seemed reasonable and the service was average at best

Yes they do, they have the Hibachi options in the kids' size and they also have tempura shrimp and chicken tenders on the kids' menu. It's not a very big selection to choose from.

You could get just the vegetables instead of the rice too with your entree which would be gluten free.
