We were there for a holiday get together. Food was very good. They have changed a few things that we were a little disappointed about. They used to serve you bean sprouts and now they serve noodles. They were fine but we preferred the sprouts. We remembered the scallops being a lot thicker. They are cutting them too thin in our opinion. We are huge fans of their Tokyo Sauce. That has changed as well. It used to be yellowish orange (the color of egg yolks, the main ingredient) now it's more pinkish orange. It was still good just a weird color. Two of us had the beef which was amazing. Their fried rice Is the best I've ever had. The chefs are usually so much fun but ours was kind of a dud. In his defense, we were doing a lot of talking so maybe were weren't as attentive as we could have been. We'll be back but with a little lower expectation.

Our family has a tradition of going to Hibachi around Christmas. This year was out turn to find a place. Reviews were good online so we gave it a try.

Food was great, showmanship was fantastic. A little pricy, but you do this kind of thing for entertainment as much as for nourishment.

Overall we would go back, but after saving up a bit.

We have gone to this restaurant for special occasions for over 10 years now still holding up as a fun delicious place to go there has been some transition with the chef so last time we were there the chef wasn't quite as entertaining as in the past I think he may have been overwhelmed with too many tables but for the most part the food is good the sushi is good the kids like sherbert at the end and I've never gone wrong with the scallop hibachi. Also big tip, the Tokyo Shrimp is amazing! Do make a reservation on popular nights.

This has become our kids favorite place for "birthday dinners" so we have dined here often. The chef cooks on the hibachi right in front of you. Soup, salad, shrimp, steak or chicken, white or fried rice, etc. The chef may make the obligatory "onion volcano", chop up veggies and fire them at you so you can catch them in your mouth, etc. and it's usually very fun. It's good to go as a group and there are typically 7 or 8 seats at each hibachi. Some observations... although the food is good, it's typically very overpriced. Our family of 5 may easily rack up a $150 bill. Also, if you go here and then you go somewhere else (a movie, a party, etc) you *WILL* smell like food. The meal is prepared so close to you that you just can't escape it. I'm sure we'll be here again shortly. Kampai to Rokbonki.
