Not really what I had expected considering all the rav reviews. For starters, the teppanyaki area was a bit dingy, especially compared to Benihana. One would expect the inside of the restaurant to be a bit more nice looking, considering the price of the meals and the fact that they serve the holy grail of steaks–Kobe beef. In fact, it was the Kobe beef that saved it from a 2-star rating. Although the chef’s, as well as the owner’s, show was more entertaining and more daring (They actually play with fire!) than those at Benihana, their cooking was just the same. Gone are the days when the chefs (especially the Japanese ones) would serve you a sizzling meal cooked on a high-heated iron grill!
