    Make sure you bring a friend. They only sell the blue ocean punch bowl to parties of two or more.

    Talk clearly or they will mess up your order & your tab. Charged me for 2 things I never ordered & didnt bring out a dish we ordered but still charged us anyway. Complained & the lady Gennie was rude.

    Worst service ever. Customer service spoke no English. Overpriced and run down. Cannot recommend to ANY HUMAN. Poor quality, worth about 1/4 of price. Go check out Makado for good teppanyaki.

    Don't go to the lunch sushi buffet unless you like giant cold dense pieces of rice with a bit of sushi drizzled on top.

    the lunch buffet area is close to the bathroom, so stuff all your rice in your napkins and toss it there!
