The food was good the service was good as well however despite making a reservation we were stuck in a really crappy table just by the kitchen and the garbage bins. it took me awhile to phase that part out it really takes away from the ambiance

Lunch specials are totally worth it but dinner is a bit pricy

First went to this restaurant on a work trip. Loved it so much I took my wife and she loved it too. In fact loved it so much that when we were planning a small family dinner for my birthday this place was my first choice.

The course menu was great, had variety and was very filling. Our server was also attentive and very friendly. However I had booked a reservation at 6 pm well in advance for a table of 8, this was confirmed via email. When we arrived they had thought the reservation was for 7 even though in the email confirmation it had said 8. They tried to accommodate for the 8 and placed us at a table with only one grill. We voiced our concern that one grill would not be enough space for our party of 8. We were left standing upstairs waiting for awhile before one of us went down to get an update on the situation. They informed us there would be a table however we had to wait until some other party left. We eventually got our table 30 minutes later. What's the point of making a reservation if there wasn't a table reserved to accommodate the number of people in our party for the specified time.

The service and food there is really nice, but we ordered a combo for 3 and she served us food for 6. We didn't know about that and at the end the price is doubled. Were not happy with it.

We made reservation for 7 and was givens table that couldn’t actually seat 7 people. When we asked for a table change we were told they couldn’t accommodate and told us just to squeeze and fit. Which I didn’t appreciate. After much negotiation and push back from the staff we were able to switch to the table next to us which was able to accommodate 7 ppl. We should have been given a table like that in the place and shouldn’t be in a situation where I need to fight to get it. I would assume when I made the reservation for 7 ppl, when I arrive at the restaurant we would get a table that would comfortably sit 7. If you can’t accommodate then u shouldn’t take the reservation.

It’s a cool experience but the food isn’t anything special. Think of it as the Nando’s grade of Japanese food.

Reservations for 4 ladies celebrating a birthday. Ordered 3 appetizers and dinner for 4. Way too much food! The services brought all the vegetables last and not with the meat course. By the. We were too full. Would of been nice too know there was veg coming.

A plan for a 2 hour sit down. Interesting venue for a special occasion. Not a place I would go just for dinner out as you do cook your own food.

We celebrated my parents birthday. Ordered the set combo and also added additional appetizers and sides. Highly recommend the garlic noodles. Most things such as meats, seafood and veggies are cooked on the grill but they also have appetizers, salads, noodles and rice that is brought to you cooked. Everything was delicious.

Best for 2 people because less splitting of foods and the meat lovers combo is best deal, lastly you don’t have to share a grill between more people

This little restaurant reminded us of a restaurant we found off the beaten path in Thailand. The flavors are perfectly blended; the variety of cuts of meats, poultry, pork and seafood are plenty to not let you walk away hungry, even S'Mores for grilling. A must to place to visit. I would recommend a reservation because the tables fill up fast.

For a huge table of 18, our server Kevin worked his butt off to cater to our needs and our boisterous behaviour. He really made celebrating a birthday a fantastic time. The General Manager also came by to talk to us and made sure that everything was going smoothly. The food as usual was on point and everything was perfectly tasty. Never any complaints about this place!

This is great place. It was my friends and my first time going and we were just so amazed about everything. Food was great and seasoned very well, servers were very friendly, the vibe in there was fresh and charming. I was very pleased to see they had a wheel chair lift at the entrance, very accommodating! Only thing I would suggest is in the dinners you can order such as Samurai, etc, you can not switch an item out. We felt bad because a dish or two was left uneaten. :(
Otherwise I will refer this place to many and keep coming back!!

It is a fun and tasty way to eat dinner. You can enjoy this with anyone, although I recommend not taking kids because it's dangerous with the hot grills and the grill changes. Great for a date or with friends. Service is great.

Make sure that you make a reservation before hand as the restaurant is small. The food is reasonable, we had the Samurai which is good for 4 people and it was plenty already! We also ordered Seafood plates and they were phenomenal. Would definitely come back

I had read reviews online before going and was not disappointed!!! We ordered the meat lovers premium and it was fantastic. Great variety of meat, delicious appy and salad and refreshing maple ice cream to finish off our meal. Everything came at a good pace, cooking was easy, everything was tender and tasted great. Overall it was one of the best meals I can remember and we will definitely go again. Looking forward to our next meal there!

Kobe beef is so small for $30 (i know kobe beef is pricey but still )
we got a table in the back of the restaurant so it's quite noisy from the kitchen.
however, our server is amazing in terms of service and overall.

Love the place. I wish it had a little better quality beef, or the 1/4" of ribeye was $25 not $30.


The staff were great and everything else is quite reasonably priced. Would go again.
