BEWARE,DON"T EAT THERE!! – Hair in your food is the absolute worse! They will serve it up to you and careless about it. I spoke with "Noi" the manager and she say's it doesn't happen "very often". I told her that they need to implement hair nets. Noi says "well, we pull our hair up". I informed her that pulling the hair up is apparently not enough and that they need hair nets. Noi sacastically says "we'll consider it". I told her once DHEC is contacted she'll not only "consider" it but "enforce it". Terrible food and service!! One customer down. I must add i frequented them many times before. The one star was given on behalf of having the common sense of of knowing how to open a business.
Most delicious Japanese food in Columbia – Grilled Teriyaki is AWESOME.
Service is super fast and food is super good. Sushi is OK, nothing crazy delicious, but good.
SO much food comes with dinner, and "white sauce" is like sent from the Gods.
And it's really cheap compared to other Hibachi places. You might pay $23 at Miyabi's but like $11 at GT's. And lunch & late night prices are even cheaper. Like $7 for shrimp & steak.
The chicken is the specialty, and other entrees are cooked to order. Can go healthier by getting steamed rice or extra veggies, no rice.
Try it once, and you'll become a regular.
good local spot, dont go expecting fancy habichi – The previous review was unfair. Do not go to Grilled Teryaki expecting anything less than good food fast. Yes it is small and kind of loud which does make it great for kids. I have a two year old he can make a bit of noise and mess and no one treats us like we should go home. The Ginger dressing on the salad is tangy and good. The other sauce was shrimp sauce I have never had it with slime on top. It really makes the rice. You are ordering from a limited menu so it is fast, thats the name of the game. The service is fast also and may be lacking that five star flair. Those who eat here eat here again so they usually know what they want. Give me a break you waited out side for five minits big deal, you waited to order for ten minits please. Go to Binihana already. This is a great local and college kid spot make no mistake about it.
Horrible customer service – We stood at the front for five minutes waiting awkwardly as people pushed pas and shuffled around to place take out orders and pay in area smaller than most closets. finally someone acknowledged us and we were sat. and then waited another ten minutes before some one took our drink order, the same waitress who we watched chit chat and duck in and out of a smaller room with a few booths. tossing some straws on the table she was gone before we could tell her we were also ready to order. after returning and taking our order, she went to the corner before the hall to the bathroom and SQUIRTED salad dressing on a pile of wilted lettuce and dried cucumber. it was gross. our food was brought to us quickly, fortunately we didnt have to witness our lettuce swimming in dressing anymore. however, the white-ish sauce that was brought to our table was yellow and dried at the top and gooey, it looked old and possibly harmful. when we were finished our original waitress resurfaced, someone else brought us our food, no one ever asked us how it was.... she offered us boxes. brought them to our table with our check. as we moved to the front to pay in the "closet" she intercepted us and tried to get us to follow her to the back and pay while standing and in the way of customers and servers..... this restaurant is open late on weekends, drunk people beware.
