Love this place! Helpful hint... They allow plate sharing at a cost of an additional $5.00. This gets each of you a soup, salad and you share the meal entree. We usually go 2-3 times per year and it is always a great time!!

I had dinner here this evening with two work colleagues and really didn't know what to expect. I can honestly say this is the best meal I've had in the two and half weeks I've been in Virginia Beach. Really good fresh ingredients cooked in...More

Food was okay but very pricey for hibachi dinner. I was there with family, probably will not repeat this experience. Parking lot was empty that should have told me the quality of place.

We went as a group. Six ladies who enjoyed the food, the show and the company. I had Chicken Hibachi with fried rice and veggies. Wonderful and filling. Took half home for lunch the next day. Too good for words.

Been to Sumo several times because we have friends who love it. It's pretty expensive, especially with all their plate sharing charges (even for small children) but all these places are high for what you get in my opinion. Food is usually good to quite...More
