    They cook food in front of you at a blackjack table. It's super fun and not that expensive. You should make reservations one day in advance or more of you have a big group. Excellent for groups

    Great view of the bay and airplanes. If you like sushi, do not I repeat do not order happy hour. This is a picture of my yellowtail hand roll. On my way to the bathroom.

    Horrible service. I was there alone and was sent to sit in the bar area. Took 15 minutes to acknowledge I was there.. the only person at the bar. Server didn't check on me, didn't offer refills. Lame.

    Shrimp fried rice. #bomb

    Order your steak one degree less done than than you usually do. Since they cut it into small pieces, steak often ends up getting overdone.

    Need to get in and out quickly and want to avoid smelling like hibachi oil? You can get the same menu in the lounge.

    The food isn't that great but the show the Chef puts on is really awesome. Ask for Benito or Amadon!

    The rolls are not so hot here but there are a few other things on the happy hour menu that make it worthwhile.

    Never a wait to get a table @ sushi/bar area... Same menu offered. Beautiful view of the bay and planes landing at SFO. You sacrifice the cooking show to get your food quicker.

    Amy W. · May 5, 2011
  • Nayan D.

    Ask for the Diablo sauce and dip some to each bite of fried rice...delicious.

    Nayan Desai · March 26, 2011

    They use a lot of butter and oil here but it sure is tasty! Valet parking is free and the view of 747's landing at SFO is 2nd to none!
