Not Worth The Cost! – Definitely not worth the cost! No real entertainment as you would expect from the chef. The salad, soup and desert were a joke, although the main course was very tasty but extremely small portions especially for the price. Drinks are non-refillable (sodas $1.75 and tea $2.00), we were also charged extra for our rice (i.e. fried or white) which was a shock. Would not recommend this restaurant - definitely not woth the money!!!
If you really need a fix – After eating here three times I would say that if you want Japanese and it is close by it is an OK place to go. But I would not recommend going out of your way.
Traditionally japanese steak houses are known for the performance of the chefs and this is one key element missing here. The food is of good quality but I felt that service was rather cold an not of traditional japanese hospitality.
On another visit I tried the sushi. Seemed that the stadd was not truely interested in checking on my needs so it took a while to get my piece by piece orders. But once again the quality was not an issue.
The price is a bit more than I would have expected
Note I would not say the staff was rude, just not trained in traditional Japanese steak house hospitality.
Some nights Worth Remembering – I've gone to the Japanese Garden 3 times. The first Time was WONDERFUL! It was an awesome experience. The food is awesome. It doesn't take long to eat your food, the only problem we had when we went was waiting on the chef to come and cook it for us.
