Arrived 6:15pm for Happy Hour. Menu selection was top notch. Food was excellent. Wait staff was prompt, congenital, and professional. Love the ginger salad. Sushi was a big hit! Everything we ordered came out quickly, was delicious, and quickly consumed. Thank you Song. Another 5 star dining experience.

I went here with a party of 8 for a bachelorette. It was fun. Food was pretty general hibachi style food. The portions are HUGE, so you will definitely take home leftovers. I got a white sangria which was too sweet for my preference. The chef and the waiters were very nice. It is a good option for i-drive.

The presentation is great, and food is delicious. They were great at accommodating a large party, and we had great service. It is a little noisy, so it's hard to hear anyone who is not sitting directly next to you, but other than that, it's definitely worth the $$.
