a diner from Nashville, TN
Have been going there for 2 years and have enjoyed it as fresh sushi as one can get in Nashville with good Hibachi though perhaps a bit overpriced. Tonight, thought my 2 year old might enjoy the Hibachi Grill. She was startled by the brief fire at the beginning and cried for about 15 seconds(honest). No big deal right? WRONG. The manager, Erica, had the nerve to approach my wife, and ask her to take my child outside. I was absoultely shocked and told her if someone actually voiced a complaint within 15 seconds including the time it took her to walk over, then i'd like to know about it. She replied that she had kids too and was just giving me a "heads up!". Unbelievable. I'm an asian professional who has been eating at Japanese restaraunts for decades and have never been treated so rudely and inappropriately. A manager should never have the right to tell a parent what to do with their child. Hibachi grills are noisy by nature, they have child seats for crying out loud, gimme a break (this is not a high end restaraunt). Well, we didn't get up except to complain later. In summary, I'd recommend against going there for anyone with kids that might make noise. Completely ruined dinner for us.

THE FOOD WAS WONDERFUL, HOWEVER IT DID TAKE AWHILE TO GET DRINKS AT OUR TABLE.
