Me and my group of friends have made reservations for dinner to celebrate our friend’s graduation. On a Tuesday evening, it was not as packed as it is during the weekend. Our waitress Katherine was very helpful and pleasant, helping us with the menu, explaining how to cook our dishes and paid great attention to us whenever we needed anything.

Luckily, we made it on time for their happy hour specials. We decided on the happy hour bundle for 55$ and added some other dishes: the fried chicken karaage, takoyaki and some pork belly. We quickly received our food one after the other, and even had our grills changed after grilling 1-2 orders of meat. Then, we finished up with some ice cream which was included in the meal bundle!

Overall, the service and quality of food was absolutely great! Definitely worth the extra $ instead of going to an AYCE bbq joint. Plus, it’s great for groups as their tables are very spacious!

The food was very good but the quantity served was not great. We took the menu for 6 and we were still a bit hungry after.
The service was not outstanding just because the waitress was not enough available if we had request and it would take quite a while to receive extra orders. But still the staff was very nice and they even sang happy birthday in chinese for me.
We will definitely go again and are already planning another visit since the food was exceptional.

The food was amazing. We didn't understand what the waitress was telling us because she spoke too smoothly but it didn't really matter the most important was the food and it was delicious.

1ère expérience d'essai d'un BBQ japonais. Je ne sais pas si elle était si authentique mais j'ai plus apprécié, comparé à un BBQ coréen ou mongol. Notre serveur était fort sympathique, prévenant et j'ai trouvé les mets copieux en raison de leur nombre et de leur variété. Bien que 2h nous aient été alloués, nous avons été très gentiment pressés de partir aussitôt l'addition réglée. Je comprends que ce soit une enseigne très demandée surtout un vendredi soir mais disons que ça laisse un arrière-goût un peu désagréable quant à la qualité du service. Il est temps que la chaîne ouvre d'autres restaurants à Montréal. Je reviendrai sûrement car je veux parcourir le reste de la carte.

Went there with my hubby for our baby moon trip and had a wonderful wonderful lunch on a Friday... the lunch set for two was excellent with variety of beef and veggies(grilled mushroom). The service was top notch. Really like the black sesame ice cream too for dessert! Thank you Yichi for the wonderful hospitality.

Our experience was great from the moment we booked on Open Table, till we left full. The hostess was pleasant and attentive, our server was knowledgeable and very friendly. Her name was Laura, she was still in training but she did an amazing job. She had an answer to ever question we had and she even walked us through the menu. I was impressed by her and wish her all the best. Management came over and asked for feedback on our experience, he was nice and seemed like a good guy to work for. The food was delicious. Overall 5 star experience.

Great place to eat with friends. We were 7 and ordered the Shogun, which is meant for 6 people but easily fed 7 adults.

The meat is excellent, and it's fun to cook at your table.

The place is usually slow on the service, but last time was appaling. We had a reservation for lunch,we arrived at 12h15, and it was getting close to 13h00 and we still haven't received our food (I don't know why it's so long to prepare uncooked meat?). This was made worst because the table next to us recieved theirs before us even if they arrived 10 minutes after us.
So i would not recommend for lunch if you have a time limit to eat, but as a dinner option it should be all good. The food is very good, i just wish the service was less chaotic .

This was our first time at the Montreal location, we had gone at the one in Chicago. Service was very good! We had a very private spot near the window.
First time we went, we had the convienient 2ppl set menu, but this time we ordered a-la-carte. It cost less and we had PLEMTY of food. All was delicious and the staff kindly provided instructions on meat timings.
Great for dates or small groups of friends. Not good for solo dining or large groups IMO. Do reserve ahead, and if you plan on going often, dwl their app for points and perks.
