    Best BBQ course meal around the area! Try the Fuji course for 2 or the Kobe-style course if you're feeling extravagant. Friendly staff offers great service: they tell you how long to cook the meat for

    Happy hour all year round. Take a chance on it. It's more than valuable discount, you will love the variety of beef. If you don't know which you would like, please try one of the courses.

    Everything is so good... get the scallion with sauce add on. Delicious to cook with or by itself. The seared tuna appetizer is some of the best tuna I've ever had. The meal combos are also excellent.

    Here's a tip - unscrew the tip of each of the three sauce bottles and pour direct from the bottle! Otherwise you will take forever pouring the sauces into the container :)

    Every special they had on my visit this evening was worth every penny! From the $ 8.00 pitcher of Kirin beer to the House Sake! No matter what we ordered, the end result was A+...Go there and enjoy!

    Get a free edamame with an fb checkin. Try the harami skirt steak, spicy pork, spicy tuna volcano. For dessert try the mochi ice-cream with 4 flavors of which green tea one's the best.
  • Jennyffer E.
    Place is amazing, little skeptical at first because you have to cook your own food but omg was everything delicious! Word to the wise the dinner for 2 deal is enough food for about 3-4 people!

    Happy hour here is incredible. Can't beat half price beer and mixed drinks at the bar (and food after 10:30). Have only had food at the bar, but it's always delicious.

    What a great looking restaurant and amazingly tasty food! The meat just melts in your mouth. Pros: choices, sauces, mix/match, mouthwash in bathroom. Con: getting full.

    very interesting experience, a barbecue meal with lots of side dish and salad options, you can grill fish, meat or chicken, even vegetables. but be prepare to smell gross when you exit the rest.
