Held our annual company dinner at Kurama and it was stupendous! The food was delicious, our chef was fantastic, and the staff never allowed a glass to become empty. I would highly recommend this establishment.

I’m rating this place low because there was glass in our food. I took my box out of the fridge and took a bite and there was something that most definitely wasn’t food in my mouth and it was a piece of glass. They didn’t take any responsibility for it. I know they’re probably used to people trying to get free stuff but we wanted to make sure they were aware but they said we can’t prove it happened there. Their food does taste good. I had the ramen and would still maybe risk a piece of glass for it if the craving was strong enough. I’ve worked in restaurants for years and if glass breaks, protocol is to trash anything in the vicinity for safety. They knew something broke, they knew what it broke near and rather than ensuring the safety of their guests, they destined dangerous product for profit. Nonetheless, their food is tasty and service is great.

The food was great. We hadn't been since the pandemic so it was nice to know the soup, ginger dressing for salad, and the entrees taste as good s always. We went for lunch and you get just as much food as when you go to dinner for less cost. We were going to get the early bird dinner for two, which is now $54.99, but had the lunch portion of steak and shrimp for $17.99 and it still came with the shrimp appetizer like the dinner does, plus soup and salad. They seem to be short on table chef's so it took a while after we had the soup and salad till he got there. Otherwise just as good as always!

It was a nice atmosphere we had a party of about 15 people they were very accommodating we made reservation ahead of time or food was prepared in front of us by to cooks. The portion size is large the pricing varies we had a lot of seafood items in our food therefore our pricing was a little higher but still affordable. I ordered a martini and the bartender came out and inquired which type and what type of liquor which I thought was great instead of just sending out anything. Overall the experience was great for everyone even the children that was with us if I had to say anything is just one of our cooks was a little less interactive.

Kurama certainly has a good bang for your buck! The chefs have great personalities, the food is great, and the service is awesome! I like to go at lunch time to mingle with the professionals, and at dinner to loosen up after a long week! This place has a time for everyone! My family of 8 loves it!

This restaurant is a little bit older and could use a little uplift however, do not let that take away from the food, service, or atmosphere. The staff is phenomenal and they will dish out plenty of food. You better come prepared to eat. The cost per person was very reasonable for a hibachi restaurant. Weight staff was very attentive and responsive, if you are in the mood for hibachi, this is the place to go!
