    Go for dinner at around 8pm for free entertainment. Take turns pounding mochi (which you get to eat as a free dessert afterwards!!). Sit at the grill for a more fun time and order the signature drink.

    It's not pricy -amazingly because it's really close to Time Square-. The deal of the three rolls is the best. You get 18 rolls for only $25 bucks. The servers need to improve a little bit.

    Awesome show, loud and rowdy but really cool spot for those interesting after work business meals. And of course, food and service were flawless.

    A+ for experience and presentation and the food is pretty good. I love how they serve you as you sit down around the table. It's a bit like theater and benihana.

    The Robata is really nice. They had a special with Brussels sprouts and seaweed: gorgeous. It's not the same feel as in Tokyo but definitely enjoyable.

    Great food at a reasonable price (which includes some fun entertainment). The Kaiseki menu hits the spot. Also, make sure to check out the restroom.

    Pricey, but decent food. Got kobe skewers and asparagus and sweet potato robata. Its only 2 skewers for $32! Go if you have a corporate card otherwise, not worth the $

    Consider eating at the sushi bar, which is always active and gives you a view of the chefs. Make note: This place is usually closed Sundays.

    After you’ve had your fill of Robata – get the Kinki and the Wagyu Skewers, you have to pay a visit to the restroom. It’s amazing.

    Expensive, tourist oriented, loud, limited menu. But quality fish. For more variety and bang for your buck, walk to Haru on 42 St and Bway
