This place is nothing but a joke. I have never left a hibachi grill hungry before until tonight. Service was beyond horrid. Above that, one of the cooks friends brought him a shot of alcohol while he was cooking our meal. They sat us next to an extremely over intoxicated group of people who were LOUDLY talking about masturbation and making drug deals. And how pu**y juice was stuck in his beard. I was served 2/3 mushrooms and about 1/3 meat, which tasted like a leather boot. One of the hostesses told me it would be "awhile" before a manager could get to me. We left and called back to complain. The manager could barely understand me because of the language barrier. And just told me I should have came to the bar instead of the hostess station. He didn't bother to ask my name, offer me any compensation or anything. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY HERE. Period. Does anyone have any information about who owns this place? This is not acceptable at all.

The service is horrible and our cook didn’t even do any tricks or talk at all. He also didn’t ask us anything about our food and ended up getting steak that was cooked too long for me and had random sauce on it. THERE WAS NO FRIED RICE. They only do steamed rice I guess. The food was okay, but compared to other japanese steakhouses I have been to it wasn’t the best. I will NOT be back.

I loved the food but the service was the worst.

Gojos Japanese Steak house review – Brought my parents here and we all loved it! Our waitress had an attitude but whatever. The food was DELICIOUS!! I'm actually going here this weekend with some friends, pretty excited to eat here again!

Made a reservation for tonight at Gojo's for my daughter & son-in-laws anniversary. After reading the reviews I was almost skeptical about taking them there, this is one of our favorite places to eat, when we get the chance to make it there. Glad I didn't change plans. Yes, the place was loud, and it could use some ventilation, waitress not so pleasant, however the food was great & very reasonable. Chef was awesome as well. Will continue dining at Gojo's!!!!

Gojos Japanese Steak House – March 2nd,2012: (Sigh) Oh Gojo's, when did things go so bad? I'm glad I have the memories of the good times because they are clearly a thing of the past.

Before going tonight, I was simply checking the address,then saw reviews and I was determined to prove them wrong.

Admittedly, the service has always been poor. But you kind of forgave that because the meal was worth it.I stand corrected.Yellow sauce will only take you so far.(I'm pretty sure this is Knorr hollandaise, but broken).

Our Chef was completely devoid of any personality whatsoever.We tried to to engage him by asking questions and such. He wasnt having any of it. No onion volcano, no "Japanese egg-roll"---nothing. (Granted, these tricks are tired but at least you make the effort). Like watching someone simply cook your dinner. Hell, I can do that at home!

I was barely halfway through eating my meal when the waitress was bringing out "to-go" boxes. I'm not kidding, 5 bites into my steak. Then a stack of plates appeared on the table in anticipation of the next group.

At this point I really wanted to just purposely take longer to p*$$ them off because I was so annoyed.

Someone needs to contact Robert Irvine and resurrect this place.Its a yawn fest at best.

There is a family owned Japanese place on Shawnee Mission Pkwy and Pflumm that is delicious and...here's a twist... aware that your dollars could be spent anywhere. No, no Gojo's legend to lean on.Just good service and delicious food. They actually treat you like you are a GUEST.

Horrible service more than once! – My husband and I had been to Gojo's several times. Our most recent and final visit was 2/18/12. We got there at 4pm when it opened. There was no hospitality shown by the greeter. Our server had no personality what so ever and was too soft spoken to work there. The chef was fine, but there was already a damper on the visit. The server stood behind the chef as he cooked. Her arms were crossed and she looked bored to tears. The bus boy brought me more water and I asked him for more tea. He said sure, but then never returned. Next time I saw him, he was in someone else's food area with his arms crossed looking bored! The food was good, but we'll go to Kobe's from now on where at least they make you feel welcome. You're spending too much money not to feel appreciated. My husband, who is a GM in the restaurant business, said all the employees we came in contact with would not have a job at the end of the day if he were their manager! Also, my husband ordered a margarita which looked like a Sprite. A woman at the table that we did not know ordered a MaiTai. There was no red color to it and she complained that it tasted strictly like grapefruit juice. The server talked to the bartender about both drinks and came back to our table. She offered to take both drinks back for more liquor at an additional charge. HA! Needless to say, we both declined. That was really ridiculous!

Horrible Service! – I love their food but hate their service! A couple of years ago I called to reserve a dinner time for my then girlfriend and now wife for Valentines day. When we showed up for our time they couldn't find my name. They had a name that sounded like mine but spelled differently. They waited, calling out the other name for 30 minutes before the "let" us take a seat. They reminded us that we were not on the list. I haven't been back since.

I gave them another chance this year. I reserved seats for my wife and I on January 25th. I called tonight to confirm my reservation time, because I forgot, the gentleman on the other end said that he can't find my name... We'll se how it goes on Tuesday. Please pray or me!

The Worst Food Ever – Just left from there and the place is horrible. The first grades chairs that you sit in are filthy as hell. The smell is almost unbearable. The prices are rediculous. It really needs a make over. The food was ok, but could have been cooked a little longer. I would never go there again and I would recommend that you go in and check it out first before you eat there. No stars.
