This tiny little placed nestled in a strip outside Discover Mills mall is fantastic. My family and I usually get the teriyaki dishes. I am a vegetarian and they have made the most wonderful tofu dish. It's not on the menu - ask for the "tofu special" - it's really lovely. The portions are large, the food is very fresh, and the flavor is lovely. The veggies that come on the side have a light seasoning to them and they are always perfectly cooked, not mushy. The rice is always light and fluffy. I know, it's just rice, but I've had lots of places with hard, dry, not so fresh rice. Their shrimp sauce is very yummy on it as well. When we started going, the others in my family were getting the chicken. It was perfect, in their opinion. As a veg, I can't speak to that. *grin*. However, once they tasted the tofu special, they now order only that. I did watch the chef make the chicken, and he used a fresh chicken breast and chopped it while it cooked. Again, all fresh and lovely food here. You can watch your food being made, but it's not one of those "showy" hibachi places. No jarring noises and showmanship. Just quiet skill :) Long story short, this place is my go to favorite. I have sampled other stuff, but I have to admit I love the tofu special the most. For an average of $6 for a big meal, please give it a try. The couple that run the place are very nice to boot. Always a pleasant experience!
