Denise, our waitress was very nice and sure our glasses were never empty. The food was good. Fair warning though, where a bib or don't where a nice shirt because the chefs flipped food all over the table. It was first time I've ever seen such a thing. Nevertheless, we were seated with a great group of people so we were able to laugh at the amount of rice flying at us.

Took my brother and sister there for their first live hibachi experience and they loved it! We also had 2 toddlers with us, who both appeared to be impressed with the atmosphere. I like that we were able to share the early bird special and still enjoy loads of food and an overall great experience. We're visited early in the week but the staff was still professional and accommodating to us and the food was excellent!

Tried it for my first time. My guest and I had the two for one. Really enjoyed Ray the chef (it was his first day) and Rodney the bartender!! We will definitely be back!!!

Great place. We went in late but we were still accommodated. Rice wasn't enough though but I feel its cos we were late and the chef was tired. But they really did accommodate us. So for that. I'll be back. Highly recommended.

Been going to this place for years. The price and portion is unbeatable and the food is the best. Not 5 stars because it could be cleaner but I've never had any problems.

My family of 5 went to dinner here tonight, unfortunately our 5YO started not feeling well shortly after the cook began preparing food. The cook could tell something was wrong, he kept asking her if she was okay and trying to make her smile. Myself and her ended up going to the parking lot, shortly after our entire family all had to leave. Our waitress went and got other employees from the back so they could box up our plates quickly to take with us. The food has always been great but tonight I was extremely impressed with the staff's compassion and customer service!

We were hoping to have a fun hibachi experience, but unfortunately, that was not the case. We literally sat down and the server asked if we were ready to order (I just set my purse on the floor). The server rushed us through our meal, constantly asking if we were finished when we were obviously still attempting to eat our miso soup and salad. He even tried to take our dinner plates while we were still eating. The hibachi chef did nothing spectacular. There was no interaction with the table guests, and he only tossed one shrimp tail to the floor beside me and my friend. Maybe it was just an off night, but the tables around us seemed to be having a great time. I'd like to say I'd try again, but I don't believe that will be the case. The food was good, but the whole experience was not enough for a return.

Nice food and friendly staffs Update post on July 10. I used to like this place but today the service was bad. Waited so long for drinks and the MENU. Bad service.

The newly renovated bar area gives this long standing favorite restaurant of ours a great new feel. The food is the best and they always accommodate our different allergy requests. Rodney is the best!

Food was enjoyable with the typical hibachi offerings. Dining room was too hot, and the restaurant desperately needs an aesthetic update to make it more modern and not trapped in the 1990's (maybe even 1980's).
