My girlfriend and I went here a couple of months ago for dinner. I really wanted to like this place because it isn’t Benihana and I thought I would get a great experience from an independent tepanyaki place.
Also, I saw this place on the Travel Channel and thought it would be a good idea to give it a try.

Our chef was the owner, (the one they showed on the Travel Channel episode) who I have to say was very entertaining with his wit and tricks, BUT the food was not that great.

The main issue I had was that the majority of the food was over cooked. The shrimp that he made look like little bunnies, sat on the grill for way too long and actually started to darken and toughen up.

The fried rice had hard pieces in it because it sat on the grill too long as well.
We both ordered the filet for our entrees and it was overcooked from how we requested it.

I was pleased that he offered a variety of sauces but that didn’t take away from the over cooking of the main dishes.

Aside from the chef being more entertaining, I would have been happy to have gone to a Benihana instead. I don’t know if this was a fluke or not and I may give this place another chance but based on my one experience, I would be hard pressed to not go somewhere else.
