Toki Hibachi & Sushi is the newly opened Japanese cuisine restaurant which replaced Fuji Steakhouse. It looks familiar in style as Fuji, however, it breathes fresh air when you walk in the front door.

The host and hostesses wear authentic kimonos and you can find the owner walking around in a nice formal suit. The fish tank is still in the same place and I would even say some of the fish made the move from Fuji to Toki. However, I overheard the owner say the grills are new so that’s a plus.

To get the full experience, I sat at the grill and ordered the hibachi chicken and steak. The chef who cooked my food was talented with his skill and kept me laughing during his preparation of the food. The chef performed many of the tricks that the Fuji chefs did, but he also added his own twist. There were a couple of mistakes, however, for the most part the show was flawless.

When I received my food, it looked like the servings almost doubled from what Fuji gave guests. The interesting thing is that the prices looked mostly the same. My food tasted amazing and every bite that I took was a new burst of flavor in my mouth. The salad that they bring out before your meal tasted similar but I thought the dressing may have been different. The soup tasted the exact same, however, I was not a fan of it at Fuji. The yum yum sauce tastes the same as it did at Fuji, however, the fried rice was a bit different. While watching him make it, I saw new ingredients that Fuji didn’t use.

After my experience, I will go back for dinner very soon.

I would give this restaurant a rating of 9 out of  10.
