Just wondering if the last reviewer was thinking of this restaurant: http://dinehere.ca/restaurant.asp?r=2633 . As this Osaka does not really specialise in sushi, but they do have sashimi though not what you would go there for.
This is a Japanese teppanyaki house. The owner use to work at Kobe I believe. Most of the comments here are accurate. I have been here 6 times in the last year or so. It is a dining experience. Like Stonegrill, except here they cook/chef does the cooking for you.
You walk in and the hostess will seat you and your guest in one of the teppanyaki station. Each station seat app. 8 people. Then you decide what main entree you want to have for dinner. You choose from either one or a combination of chicken, prawn, scallop, NY steak, filet mignon, lobster tail, chicken breast or vegetarian. Then you can add some sides. I like the fried rice so i normally get that. All the entree's come with steam rice, soup, salad, veggies. Then one of the cook will bring a tray with all the trimmings and your dinner begins. You dont get to chose your cook. And some of the cook are more experience and can give a better show. Johnny and Roland are two of the better ones here.
As previously stated the salad is mainly iceberg lettuce with a japanese dressing. At today's standard this is pretty lame as is the soup which is bland, boring, lacking in flavor and nutrition. Remember this is Old Skool Japanese Teppanyaki house. It is for show and kewl once upon a time. Nowaday's you can get authentic japanese food in any major city.
You get two dipping sauces one for the meat and one for the seafood. Can't remember exactly what they are. Most of the seafood is previously frozen. None of my guest have ever complained about the food here or left hungry. But they may just be polite. IMHO, this style of food is slightly overprice for paying for simple cooked food. And the show is nice but once you've seen it once you've seen it all.
