Pretty underwhelmed. We had a group of 12 people and were able to get seated pretty quickly. The food was okay, under seasoned... for the most part, but the service wasn?t the best. Our chef seemed like he?d rather be anywhere but at work that day and let?sface it, when you go to a Japanese Steakhouse, the ?show? is the best part! We got none of that. Strictly food preparation. Ithought maybe it was just me but after the meal, our whole party was basically disgruntled about one thing or another. The chefeven flung food on one of the guests, getting grease on their pants and a food stain on their shoe and didn?t acknowledge thatit even happened. He just moved past it after it was brought to his attention. All in all, this wouldn?t be my first choice ofJapanese Steakhouses but I?d probably go back if invited by someone else. Read more

Went here for my birthday at the first of September with friends, was very busy, but, expected that! Chef was excellent,... service excellent, food was excellent! Would definitely go again for special occasion as it is a little costly, but, SOOOWORTH IT!! I don't eat any kind of fish or seafood, which this is that type of place, but still found a couple chicken choices.We had a party of 7 and there was a young couple that was sat with us that was very enjoyable to visit with! Would definitelygo back again! Come with your appetite though and you will still have leftovers!! Read more

Best overall Asian food experience in Springfield Missouri. The staff is always freindly and the food delicious. Dinner hear is... an experience. The food is cooked by expert chefs at the table in front of you. The chefs are very entertaining. Read more

We had a wonderful Father?s Day outing. Our party of 3 was a walk-in. We had a bit of a wait but we spent the time at the bar.... The bartender was newer, but she was welcoming and did a great job. We were seated with a party of 7 (parents and 5 kids)celebrating Father?s Day as well. It was a great experience. The cook (I think his name was Josh) was engaged and entertaining.Our server was attentive and took great care of us. The food was good and the atmosphere was nice. Read more

First time here. Celebrated our 26th anniversary. Fun place to be and our server was attentive. The chef was good, but would... have liked him to habe been a little more engaging with the diners. Still, we will be back. Read more

Great customer service and great food. The only complaint I had was the dressing on the salad, but that?s a personal preference.

Super busy on a Sunday night, opted to eat at the bar thinking it would be quicker. Bartender was great, gentleman with a beard.... He was quick to get drinks and menus. Ordered a few rolls. Thankfully he informed us the kitchen was backed up. We didn?t havetime before a show, so he cancelled it for us. Came back after the show, kitchen was still backed up. Ha! The bartender was ableto get the rolls to go, which was great of him. To go sushi is just not the same, with the sauces and everything, it was stillreally tasty! I wish the menu had a larger selection, less items with cream cheese Read more
