Not bad. Use to go to Bonzai in Trenton but they went out of business. Was looking for a new hibachi grill. Meal included soup, salad and entree. Not sure if dessert was included in the price, but had the tempura banana with ice cream, yum!. They also offer sushi, and a regular restaurant Chinese menu. Will definitely go back.

Celebrated my son's graduation dinner here with a party of 11. Comfortable seating around the hibachi. Enjoyable show, quite entertaining. Extensive choices. Lobster/shrimp combo was the family favorite. Reservations suggested on Saturday nights, the night we went was packed with a wait out the door. Food was plentiful, brought some home. BYOB, great all around.

We went on a Tuesday night, special occasion - birthday. It was deserted. We did the hibachi and luckily there was another family at our table to share in the fun (well sort of).

The food was very good but a bit stingy with the portions for the price. I used to leave with leftovers but not this time. They also could have used a bit more garlic and maybe some sesames.

The place is very clean and inviting with plenty of parking.

The chef seemed unenthusiastic and just going through the motions. He did everything so quickly. We got there at 6:10 and were out of there bill paid before 7 and we even had desert!! He served the apps (shrimp) with the rest of the meal. The entertainment portion was lacking the traditional fun you usually have.

The person that seated us and took our drink orders was very friendly.

There is a newer hibachi grill on Rt 33 not too far from here. Guess we will be trying that next time.

We visited this restaurant many time having parties at the hibachi tables and the regular ("traditional" ) tables.
The food is good and the service is good. Waiters are very friendly, hibachi cooks are very professional (some of them are better, some of them are junior++ level, however good enough to prepare tasty food).

My son and I stopped in for a hibachi dinner; it had been a while since we'd last dined here. Suffice to say that this place isn't what it was.

The service was mediocre at best, and the food barely average. It had little flavor beyond soy sauce, with no discernible spice or garlic. The accompanying mustard and ginger sauces were watery and flat. The miso soup had no taste. To cap it all, my scallops were overdone and my son's chicken was unremarkable.

Even the traditional hibachi "show" was lackluster and seemed forced, not that it's a reason to eat here.

All in all, this experience was disappointing. We won't bother returning.
