The chefs at the Hibachi grill are trained to entertain you via doing tricks such as throwing food and catching it and twirling their utensils.

Fuji Japanese Steakhouse, should you go there? That is the question I intend to not really answer, but provide you with the information you need to know so you can make the choice yourself.

On a typical day, staff tends to seat you pretty quickly once you arrive, but on special occasions, you may have to wait a little bit. Once you sit down, you are in for an experience, whether it is one you enjoy or not.

That is if you decide to sit at the Hibachi grill, for if you get a table, you won’t get the show and all the jokes made by the chefs at the grill. However, you will get your food a little faster than you would if you had ordered it sitting at the grill.

Now onto the preparation of the food. If you are at the grill, they cook it all fresh in front of you, typically starting with their fried rice, then the vegetables, then the meals, and if you’re up for it, they toss egg (cooked) up for you to catch with your mouth.

Everything you eat is a different experience whether it be the chicken or the filet mignon, the flavor will be something you remember for a while. Don’t get me started on their friend rice, it legitimately is some of the best rice I’ve ever eaten.

The food is all seasoned quite nicely, the sauces are excellent, especially the Yum Yum sauce, and their service is with a smile and jokes. If you were to ask me what I’d recommend you get off the menu, I’d say pick at random for it all tastes excellent.

On the down side, the food is quite pricey, a family of four can easily rack up $100 worth of food, sometimes more. Maybe that is too much for you, maybe you don’t enjoy the style of presentation that Fuji Japanese Steakhouse has to offer, and that’s alright, I’m not telling you that you should go there, I’m not telling you you shouldn’t, all I’m doing is giving you the information that I’ve gathered through my experiences at Fuji Japanese Steakhouse, whether or not you go is up to you.

I rate this restaurant an 8 out of 10 for its food and service, with the loss of two points is due to the expensive price tag.
