You surround our hibachi table with smiles and excitement and we surround your visit with a dazzling, fast-paced performance. Our chefs create an oriental masterpiece just for you. Their razor sharp knifes slice and dice through courses of mouth-watering cuisine. It's a mesmerizing event at any age. So, join us for lunch or dinner and experience what has become the longest running dinner show in the world.
I;ve taken many people here for their birthdays. THeir food is decent, but you go there for the show they give you. ALl the food is cooked in front of you, and the cefs are very entertaining. If your scared of throwing knoives, it may not be the place for you, but if you need a little spice in your evening, it'll hit the spot.
FOr birthdays, they pull out the drum, give you icecream, and take a poleroid picture.
They also have a private room if you want your party to be more secluded.
A warning. All tables seat 8 people and they fill them up. If you go with one other person, they will sit you with 6 others. It never bothered me, but it wont be private.
Be prepared for an exciting night.
I got conned by some friends to go to dinner here and while I had preconceptions of mediocrity in my head, I psyched myself up for the TEPPANYAKI experience. Unfortunately, my preconceived notions were right. They sat us almost an hour past when our reservation was, the food was boring, tasteless, and over priced.
The best thing I liked about the food at this restaurant was the tofu. Teriyaki sauce was poured over the tofu and fried to perfection. It is was very entertaining to see some of the tricks the chef performed.
