  • Fun experience but definitely a salt bomb
  • My kids loved it so much.
  • If you feel like splurging the scallops are so good! Always get the chicken fried rice instead of steamed and order a sushi roll for an app. I never get full off the regular meal.
  • I just ordered Spicy Hibachi Chicken which was really spicy but the Japanese Chef kept supplying side-dishes, even some shrimps to our plates just from the grill great food, great show
  • Delicious food, having your own chef so you can ask for some changes.
  • Not good for vegetarians but nice place to take your parents when they are in town
  • Not everyone can do the fire show. Neither can my server.
  • Philly roll!!
