    Fantastic experience for our first time and we will be back! Ordered a lot of food, dessert, drinks and it was under $60. Plenty of options + ordering from the digital menu for chef specials. Highly recommend

    BBQ food tasted very good and came quickly once ordered. Customer service however requires improvement as the staffer who attended us wasn’t in good mood.

    Food was spectacular quality. We went with another couple, perfect place for a double date. Only downside is that we wanted cocktails and they weren’t available for some reason. But other than that was great

    Service was poor, most the wait staff were incredibly rude. They do 1.5 hour seatings but you feel rushed the entire time. Staff constantly pushing you to leave early, they even scoffed when we wanted to order something else even though we still had 50 minutes left in our seating. We didn’t feel welcome. They gave us the wrong drinks as well sadly. Our first trip was better but this time was really not great due to the poor service.

    Annoying that you can’t book for the sushi train and this was not made clear on the booking system. Ended up on the BBQ table and food was good which helped alleviate the disappointment

    Our second time in the BBQ area and nothing bad to say about it actually. It could be a little cheaper but really it high quality so I don’t mind paying good money for good food honestly and it’s very very nice

    Way too pricy, embarrassingly small portion for the price we paid. sushi and sashimi were only average, service were amateur. I was embarrassed by the awkward service and food we received last night as I was the one who suggested and booked the restaurant for our party. Very disappointed experience, will not recommend this place to a friend again.

    Overall a pleasant dining experience. On the pricier side compared to Korean bbq - the portion of meat you get isn't particularly generous, and some cuts of meat were tough, but quality was generally good; also no refills for the side dishes. However, the beef tri-tip was especially tasty. Service was friendly and ambience is nice.

    Felt just a few dollars too expensive but overall a fantastic place. I would come far more often if they allowed single servings for the BBQ/Shabu shabu

    Even though food is brought out quite quickly, it's still very difficult to have Japanese BBQ within the 1h:45m seating. Less fun, more focussed on eating. Still, great food, attentive staff, busy bubbly atmosphere. You slow eaters out there may struggle.

    I went to tetsujin for bbq yesterday with friends, staff was greeting us quite well at first. The restaurant was not really busy as it was but we didn't get service as good as it should. I asked for one more food menu for our table and also some water for table because there was just 1 menu for 4 of us, a tall young waitress came to us but helped nothing and then left us with question so we waited another girl to serve us menu. After ordering, i felt like they tried to push every food out too rush and placed the food carelessly. Food was good and I enjoyed eating bbq but service should get more improve especially, how to look after customer or , eyes on customers.

    The food was pretty good but service is not as good as it used to be. A staff member continued to rush us through eating from the very beginning, which made the whole dining experience quite stressful. The staff also continued to touch the food and the inside of our bowls directly with his hands, which we were not that comfortable with. Hopefully this could be improved in the future.
