Went for my parents they love it. I have eaten here myself a couple of times. The employees could be just a little more friendlier

Food is great most of the time but please check your order BEFORE you walk away from the window. Service is sometimes not all that great (calling in and at the window). But the rates of the food gives them 3 stars. If service was better I would give 5 stars.

The entree was delicious and they gave me enough, so I was able to have 2 meals from this entree. I will become a regular at this restaurant.

Clean establishment with a 98.5 health code rating. Food was good but too many onions! See the rest of my review below! Cleanliness 3/5. Dining room area and sauce/condiment bar were spotless. Bathroom was lacking however and one of the food staff that came into the men's room, barely washed his hands for 2 seconds, after using the urinal. Luckily my food was already made prior to his using the restroom but goes to show that the staff need better cleaning habits when handling food. Price 4/5. Chicken and Shrimp Hibachi platter w/ medium drink was $11.69. And even though its take-out, they were still asking for tips on the receipt. Why? You are picking up your own order, tossing your own trash away as well. It's not even handed to you! Its sitting on the counter after they call you over! Your food isn't brought to your table if you eat in the dining room either. Why am I tipping you for you doing your job? Quality 4/5. I didn't want to drop a star, however I was asked: "Did you want fried zucchini, mushrooms and onions as well?" And I said yes. Well all I got as you can see in the picture was onions. They were generous with the chicken and shrimp, I can give them that much. Service 5/5. I was met with smiles and a warm attitude. Much appreciated! I will come back!

Love the food!! The line is around the building as you have to wait outside to pick up orders due to new restrictions. Gonna be at least a 30+ minute wait even if you order over the phone

The atmosphere is cozy and welcoming, fast, friendly service, nice size portions. I love the teryaki chicken and steak, the white sauce is amazing.

Good food, not spectacular, but it's good for quickbachi. I have only eaten the hibachi, can't speak to the teriyaki. Seems to always be clean and pretty quick.

I've passed by this place many times and never gave any thought to try it. Tonight I was in the mood for something new and not out of my way going home after a long day at work that was neither a burger, some chicken or a burrito. So I tried the Hibachi Shrimp and Steak and have to admit that I should have tried this place sooner. Food was great and well portioned for the price. I will be visiting again to try other things on the menu for sure...

We have been regulars here for several months. This place is an absolute gem! Good Asian fast food for awesome rates. I especially love How big the portions are and how much meat they include in each dish. Also love that they serve sushi here. You can call and order ahead and they’ll have your dish waiting for you when you get there.

Unfortunately I had to move to Raleigh. I'll still come here for my hibachi chicken and crab rangoons. The white sauce here is perfect.

For the money, its a great heaping pile of good food, lots of meat, veggies and rice. But Friday night they ran out of sweet tea.

I love going to New Japan Restaurant as an after-work Friday treat! The service is quick, and the food is always delicious. I have never had a bad experience at this restaurant--from the service to the food. Just love it all!

The foods great and well priced. Its a pretty big portion for the price. However, if you like ur meat really clean u might not like it because the chicken and steak sometimes has fat on the meat but they also have great sushi.

A rather mediocre establishment. I ordered the hibachi steak. The price was fair but the quality was a bit of a letdown. At a Japanese restaurant you would expect some sort of marinade or sauce to add character and flavor to the food; however the meat and vegetables tasted quite plain, as if nothing had been done to them aside from applying heat.

If you like the sit down Relaxed quality Japanese style food at a more fast food pace without the fancy server...this most definitely is the place to go. Always fresh and liberal healthy servings. The price is also super reasonable. There is even a glass window you can stand in front of and watch the Masterchef prepare the food. Great family choice. Sometimes there is live music.

We go here and do takeout about once a week and it’s always pretty good. We had a meal that wasn’t up to par, we took it back and they remade the whole order. Awesome customer service.

I first visited New Japan a few years back and it was pretty typical Japanese American food. However, the restaurant smelled like grease and it was very dirty. I visited again recently. They've cleaned up the grease smell and the dining room was much cleaner. The food was slightly better than last time but now they water down their white sauce and it lacks a lot of the flavor.

Pittsboro location. Outstanding. I wish this was a proper sitdown restaurant rather than a fast food joint and I really wish there was some closer to where I live. I think it was $8.99 for a chicken hibachi dinner that was so hot, fresh, tasty and huge servings. They have choices of sauces you could help yourself to, the white one was amazing. Don’t know what it was but I think I’m addicted. We’ve tried several Japanese restaurants in this area and none of them come even close to New Japan. That Lunch lasted for three meals! I have allergies and sensitivities with food I had no problems whatsoever eating here it was delicious.

Quick service with good food and good prices. Their home-made sauces are delicious and we liked the variety. Their white sauce was a little thinner than we prefer, but that could just be a difference in preference. All of the meat options were very well cooked, with all of the meats remaining quite tender and succulent. We have often had Japanese takeout where the meat would be dry, rubbery, or tough. Not in this case. Very well done. We enjoyed a pleasant and un-hurried lunch in this nice little take-out/dine-in restaurant.

Food is good and you get great size portions. The only problem is that you have to check your order before you leave, because if you don't, you will be making a return trip there. For some reason they get my order wrong and I always order the same thing. Hibachi shrimp 🍤 and steak 😋 with soba noodles 🍜, No rice. Please tell me why I always get rice 🍚 😩 😒 😫, and I tell at least 3 times. They repeat the order back to me, Hibachi shrimp and steak with soba noodles and they give me 2 piles of rice about half the time.
