Our Order: Food: The food is incredible here, I have had both chicken and steak with the seafood here. It's fantastic. Each meal includes salad, soup, rice, shrimp appetizer, and a choice of meat as the entree. The price seems a bit steep on the first visit, but once the meal is consumed there are no sad wallet holders.
What we think: From the outside, you wouldn't believe that there is a restaurant inside as it is in the basement of a rather nice office building. When you walk into the restaurant it's like you have traveled to the other side of the world and enjoy the full experience of a hibachi grill. They offer a variety of bottled beer and wine, though few Japanese-oriented draft beers. The atmosphere is very different as you sit around the grill, sometimes with strangers (as they need full seating around the grill to be efficient), and watch someone cook your food in front of you. It's quite the show. Complaints: Only open after 5 pm for dinner. I would go here for Sunday lunch if possible!
Attitude Rating: 5/5 Very friendly, the staff make the meal memorable.
Bathroom Rating: 4/5 Clean, though a little dark from the basement atmosphere.
