Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This place is fantastic and reasonably priced! They have such a large selection of food - both Asian and American. The quality of the food is excellent. They even have a stir fry counter and a sushi counter. Lots of desserts to choose from and even ice cream. You won't leave hungry!

Stopped in with out of town family. I was pleasantly surprised..it was great! Staff was very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and very flavorful. I have a food allergy and they made sure to accomodate my needs. Everyone enjoyed their meals. We chose the hibachi meals and our cook was very entertaining! Plan to go back!!

As we travel, we visit hibachi places. The atmosphere of this one was typical, taste ok, yet our hibachi cook was not pleased to be where he was (maybe he was new?)

The food is always decent, nothing necessarily excellent about the place. Hibachi is great, decent service. The dining room service is kind of spotty. The sushi is good and there are a lot of menu options. Drinks aren't too pricey and they have an ok bar.

My daughter and I had dinner here. The sushi was good. Not great but good. We ordered cheesecake for dessert and it was frozen solid. Disappointed for sure.

As I much as I love the food at this place, I will never in my life dine there again and I wouldn't recommend anyone else to dine there as well. Being in the service industry myself, I know the concept of correcting a mistake, especially if my establishment is at fault. These people will talk around you, speak to each other in their own language when there is an issue that needs to be addressed and act like you're not standing there. My sisters and I ordered 3 meals to go, as we knew the restaurant was busy and we could not wait for a hibachi table. When we placed the order, we were told it would take 15 minutes. Now I consider myself a patient person but after watching my food get brought out to be bagged, sitting in an open area for 15 minutes before anyone even went up to see what the order was, watching a waitress open and close my food boxes numerous times and walking away as other patrons are standing around. I became upset. I asked about my order and explained that I had been watching my order in that one spot where anyone can walk up and grab it and watched this lady open and close every single boxes, she walks away. She then comes to me and says they are making my soup. At this point, my food that was already out there was cold and inedible and I'm just not hearing that they ran out of soup??? When I inquired about why I am waiting for the soup when my entire order had been sitting in the front area for, at this point, 45 minutes and she starts talking about how busy they are and everyone eating in the restaurant had to get soup and they ran out. Again, I am a pretty patient person but for someone who already paid for my order and I am still waiting while everyone who doesn't pay until the end of their meal is being entertained and served is totally unacceptable. We asked for our money back and now. all of a sudden, our meals are ready. Now we have cold meals and hot soup. I asked again for a manager and I was told that the lady who was handling our food was the manager. As I am talking to "the manager", she states that there is no manager that night. She then starts talking to some guy who walks up, in their language and she asks me what she can do. At this point, I need to talk to someone higher than her because I asked for my money back, i was handed a cold meal with hot soup in the same bag, mind you the soup was fresh out of the pot and poured into a plastic container , that ultimately burst open in out bags. She starts talking to the guy in their language again and then he introduces himself as the MANAGER!!!! And then he insulted me with $15 reimbursement, $5 for each meal! Really???? Again the food is good (when hot), but if an issue arises for whatever reason, they will lie to you and act like they can't understand English because i was repeatedly asked the same question when all I wanted was a manager.

Fuji is great Sushi, friendly service in an upbeat atmosphere. We usually sit at the sushi bar so we can watch our dinner being made and interact with the chef(s). We have also dined at the Hibachi tables, though those meals are much more pricey. The sushi rice here has a perfect consistency and a hint of a sweet taste, very good. The rolls are over sized and always made well. We highly recommend the Scorpion roll, actually 2 rolls in one: Shrimp Tempura and Eel, my 10yo son and I share this one and it's our favorite for presentation and flavor. They always play great music, usually dance, which we like, and they have a great birthday song! If you're on the hibachi side and it's your birthday, they play the song over the speakers for the whole restaurant and there is a cool light show too. Plus, the birthday dessert surprise if awesome! Great food, a little pricey for some of the rolls, but definitely worth it!

I have been to alot of Hibachi places including ones who claim to be authentic. This place was fun and just all around enjoyable. Chris our Chef was awesome and all around enjoyable. This has been the best Hibachi I have had in my own town.

We recently went for a birthday party, the food was so-so, the waitress was terrible! She spilled an entire tray of 15 drinks on my sister and didn't even apologize and neither did the manager. The "show" was very boring, hardly any interaction. Will not go back!

Today I turn another year older. The husband wished to take me for a meal or flowers or something..dmmit woman just tell me what you want. So off to Hibachi we go. This could either be really good or the preamble to our next fight on how he doesnt understand me and my birthdays always suck. Upshot is: Really Good! Husband scores binus points for keeping me from flying off the handle when I have had drinks and the chef was 30 secs later than I wanted him. And what a chef. He had an audience of 2 but he did not back down from his hammy playful performance one little bit. Did I mention that the food was awsome and well prepared by a guy who can juggle knifes and eggs while telling fily friendly jokes. Highly recommend this place.

We had a very large party and they wouldn't seat us until we all arrived. Then we ended up sitting at different tables, even though we had a reservation. The menu didn't really explain the differences between the meal options.

We ate a very early dinner so the place was empty when we arrived but full when we left. Our server Chris was quick with the knives and the jokes. Corny yes, but made me laugh so much I could barely eat. Have had better food but wasn't expecting a five star experience. Still was an enjoyable evening. I do think the restaurant could use a deep cleaning and my husband said the bathroom needed better standards. Our eating area however seemed clean, and all the employees we encountered were pleasant and efficient.

We were there for dinner last week and while the food was overall pretty good, the service was horrible. Going just over two hours with four adults, a 12 yr old, a 2 year old and a new baby is absurd. The only thing that saved us was a private booth. First, I love a good salmon skin hand roll. It came out last, over an hour after all the other courses. Second, some of their rolls have chopped salmon and the texture is a little strange. Third, there's no excuse for bad service. So, they either need more wait staff or a stronger team making sushi. Last on the list is an issue I just don't get. On Monday nights selected sushi is half price at $3.00 per order. Sashimi (served without the rice) is $6.00. We only like sashimi without the rice, but the waitress said the special offer is ONLY on Sushi. So, I felt a little like Jack Nicholson in "Five Easy Pieces"...we ordered the sushi we wanted and threw away the rice. Now, if they wanted to explain that they have it all made up already, then I guess I'd be okay, but based on 45 minutes or more for our order to come, that's obviously not the case. And, while it was their half-price night - they weren't that busy. Overall their rolls are great with some really good combinations of fish and flavors, but I'll pass on Japanese food the next time we're in Ohio or at least find another place.
