    They'll bring you sorbet and sing to you for your birthday. Food is prepared on a grill in front of you, which they clean, and w/o asking my vegetarian meal was cooked first to prevent contamination.

    In 2011, restaurant sushi chef Yuya Chiba prepared a fund-raising sushi dish of Kizuna rolls and sold paintings as a way to raise cash to send to the Japan Red Cross and UNICEF Japan Relief effort. Read more

    I REALLY like the fact that their sushi prices are pretty decent and you can get half rolls! I was able to try 4 different rolls (can't wait to go back and try more) because of that! Yum & Good Value!

    The star of the show was the “Poseidon Roll,” lobster and shrimp tempura fried, masago, scallions, cucumber, and spicy mayo, in a reverse roll topped with crab and a seasoned sweet soy sauce. Read more

    If you like hibachi-style Japanese food and sushi, this is your place. It's worth the wait for the group dining, but the sushi bar seating is first come-first serve and serves the exact same menu.

    A great hibachi place with good sushi, too. Most fun hibachi chefs around, I think. They have some inventive sushi and I love that you can get half rolls.

    First come, first served seating in the sushi and bar area. Their prices are pretty high for hibachi dinner, but they have EXCELLENT sushi prices. Lots of interesting and unique rolls. :)

    Sit at the grill for more food for the same price. Order the Samurai and substitute shrimp for chicken for the same price. Get the white sauce.

    Good food for a reasonable price. Even though it is within a mall, it is able to deliver a restaurant vibe and experience.

    Forget the sushi...hibachi hibachi hibachi. And get a double serving of yum yum sauce- the stuff is addicting. Seriously.

    They advertise as the best tasting show in town ... but once you've seen one you've seen them all. Food is the best I've had at a Japanese steakhouse. Ask for the steak special ($9.99 ribeye)

    Don't get the ginger salad. It's not sweet and has a potent after taste. Gyoza is great for an appetizer though and the 500 sushi is great

    Jesus was awesome! If you are celebrating a birthday, let them know. They sing, bring out rainbow sorbet and snap a souvenir photo for you!

    Ask for Walter to be your chef! He's hilarious and he does a great job cooking the food.

    They don't have buy one get one free sushi anymore but rather lower prices. Many competitors in Raleigh but still the best. Actually run by cool Vietnamese lady.

    Low sanitation grade 90 I went on the health dept website to find out why and the results made me sick. Plus, if u get sick, no refunds. Just coupons, as if you would actually come back.

    Get the regular side of shrimp, they give you a full 4oz. instead of six pieces.

    Had the Bonsai lunch. A combo of steak, shrimp, and chicken. It was glorious.

    They do lunch prices on Sunday which is great bc most places do not do that on Sunday to make more money

    Ask for Welson to cook for you! By far, he is the best hibachi chef here!

    Not as nice or inviting since the remodel, no more BOGO rolls, either. Go to Sushi Thai on Lake Boone Trail or Tasu on Brier Creek instead.

    The bartenders are awful. If you want a drink, sit at a table and order, otherwise you'll be ignored.
