    Such a fun experience! We were a group of 8, so we got the package for 10 (which was a LOT!) Food was delicious, lots of variety. Get the spicy tuna volcano and the many varieties of beef to cook!

    Everything was tasty, but the wings, spicy kalbi soup, spicy tuna volcano, and kalbi short ribs were especially good. Pro tip: during the week, order half-price drinks at the bar before you're seated.

    The lunch special is amazing! We had the individual lunch combo which comes with 2-3 meats of your choice, soup, salad, and white rice! You can upgrade your rice or get vegetables for $2 more.

    The spicy tuna pokè was delicious. The food overall was great - we went for the Fuji set bbq meal for two and there was SO much food. We ended up leaving the chicken as it was the least interesting.

    Great lunch specials - Kobe beef selection, short ribs and garlic fried rice. BBQ perfectly sliced thicknesses of beef at the table. Perfect portions for lunch - leaves room for dessert.
  • Ghassan A.
    Hands down best meal of my life. Had the kobe set with tuna tartare, shrimp balls, sukiyaki bibimpap and smores for dessert. All were good but the highlight was the kobe beef. Definitely worth a visit

    Listen carefully to the instructions for cooking each dish - you don't want to under grill your raw chicken, meat, and fish. Don't forget to order some vegetables for the table!

    A cook your own japanese spot. Never ending happy hour if you drink at the bar (I'm partial to the shishedo margarita) then go to your table and order a group platter.

    Their 12 dollar lunch BbQ special is fantastic. Lots of meat which is great. The only thing about this BBQ is that it's too sweet for my taste. I prefer spicier food. (3 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Start with the egg drop soup and ask for a side of hot sauce to put in it. The garlic noodles are to die for, wait til the last noodles get extra crispy. End with the smores yummm!

    Not sure if this only applies to the lunch happy hour, but it's disappointing how the beef sukiyaki bibimbap no longer arrives to the table in the hot pot. It tasted so much better that way!
