We were able to get right in to the hibachi side without wait on a Thursday night at 7. We asked for Hiro since we have had him before. He is excellent! Funny, entertaining and friendly. Service was good, fast and friendly. This was my first time not ordering on the hibachi menu. I had an avocado salad and cucumber... More

Let me say, I wasn't excited about the 40 minute wait. But I'm glad we stayed because it was so worth it. Dinner was delicious and our chef was amazing. Good food and great laughs helped bring our family weekend to an awesome close! Will definitely come back again when visiting Carolina Beach!

We were really excited to have the Japanese hibachi dinner experience. We arrived fifteen minutes early and were seated at an already existing table, which was fine. Then everything just went crappy...the waitress would never bring our drinks, which were both water, how hard is that to deliver. Secondly, the same waitress would never bring dinnerware until well after the... More

I visit Hibachi-type restaurants reasonably often and I thought this one was a good value in comparison. They have good options and it is priced about 10% lower than most places I have been in the US. The service is good and the entertainment value is of course driven by the individual chef that you get and it can vary... More

Great service, full bar, all you can eat sushi had four of my favorites but not all of the usual fish are on that menu. Still, it's worth the price and was delicious. Didn't try the hibachi this trip but will definitely go back and try it. Nice atmosphere, nice décor.

The food was good. It was standard sushi. It was nothing to write home about. It served it's purpose.

Our son wanted was bragging to a friend about Okami and wanted to take him there. We went as a family party of four. The experience was anything but what we expected at a Japanese steakhouse. The chef was below average and did little, if anything, to engage the table. My son was begging for him to due "tricks" and... More

This place is a must hit on vacation. The food is served fast and in HUGE portions! The chef was super nice and a master of his trade.
