This was a nice date night spot! We went over to the bar area as we weren't interested in sitting in the hibachi area, so I can't speak for that side of the restaurant, but the service and food we had were great. Highly recommend the volcano roll 🤤

I almost decided to go to a different location due to some other reviews that were left. I'm glad I didn't. My father and I had a great experience at this location. Our server was great, and our chef was awesome. Initially, we were told that there might be a 40-minute wait, but we were seated within 15 minutes. From then, everything worked like clockwork from start to finish. If you're in the area check out this Kanki.

Had dinner there on 24SEP23. Food was excellent. Service was excellent. And the young ladies that shared our table were a pleasure to meet and to enjoy a meal with.

When I called for the reservation the hostess Emily was not friendly and was most concerned that I knew we had a10 minute grace period for all 6 in our party to arrive. So, when we arrived (2) she again was not friendly and asked if all 6 of us were there because we won't be seated until everyone is there. Chef Charlie was nice, but not fun for a hibachi chef...he didn't toss the shrimps which was disappointing. Food was average. Not an upbeat environment. There was one chef I noticed who looked like he was having fun...everyone else was just going through the motions. The fish tank in lobby was pretty cool.

We had a blast. Prices and food were great, plus half-price martinis on Wednesday 😁 Great environment, our server Levi was fantastic, and the bartender definitely knows how to make a delicious lemon drop. Call beforehand for a reservation. Rob took ours over the phone. He was polite and our table was ready when we arrived. They even brought out an ice cream and did a birthday song for our friend. I'll mention that some people don't know that an 18% gratuity is added on parties of 6 or more. It's on their website and Rob mentioned it during our reservation request. That's standard (in my experience) and didn't prevent us from eating there, but it may bother other people.

It was my first time my too my granddaughter we enjoy the food. It was an experience to have someone cook in front of you. The food was delicious.

We visited our nephew at Duke and we let him chose the restaurant. He loves Japanese, as do I, and apparently he is a regular customer. The meal was wonderful. Our cook was generous and made sure we had enough to eat. We truly enjoyed our dinner!

We visited on a Saturday and had an ok experience. We waited an hour and a half for seating although it seemed to be relatively empty inside. The food was good, but nothing out of the ordinary of hibachi. Seemed the same quality as an express Hibachi. Our server and chef made up for the experience. Our server was prompt and accommodating. The kids loved the show the chef put on. All in all it was a mediocre experience with a higher price tag.

Really cool place. Waitress was very nice, but the food is mediocre at best. Rice is kinda on the hard/crunchy side, the vegetables you get are only onions and zucchini, soup tasted bad and the salad had brown leaves in it. Sweet tea was good though.

It was our family's 1st time dining there. My granddaughter chose it as the place to have her birthday dinner! We enjoyed it so much we definitely will return!
