    Believe it or not, I'd never been to one until tonight.

    I'm not real big on Asian cuisine.

    But I gotta say, I friggin LOVED this place!

    They flip up pieces of chicken for you to catch in your mouth, and if you catch it they spray a shot of Sake into your mouth.

    I like games for alcohol. I can get used to this Hibachi thing.

    Hibachi's are cool. So are Mongolian Bar-B-Q's. :thup:

    My kids always get a kick out of the onion volcano thing.

    The onion volcano was cool as hell. My son probably would have loved all the flames, but I don't know about my daughter. She can be a little skittish at times. This was grown-ups night out though. Maybe they can come next time.

    Ohhhhh now we're talking.

    Last Hibachi I went to was the Benni Hana's in Maple Grove. Very tasty, but I must say I find them rather overpriced at times. Of course the unfiltered Sake I got was fantastic.

    On the other hand I LOVE mongolian bbqs. A new chain has come out that's fantastic, called Hu Hot. HUGE grill and so many selections.

    I took my 14 yo to Benihana's for his B'day. Also took the 15 and 7 yr old.

    $130.00.

    :eek:

    WTF?

    Next year I'm boiling a dozen lobsters at home, and tossing their tails in the air for the kids to catch in their mouths.

    Benihana's is way overpriced. Look for a local hibachi restaurant.

    Usually our bill runs around 70-80 for myself and the family. No alcohol though (Can't stand paying that much for a drink when I can make it myself for less than half the price)

    I had ONE glass of wine.:evil:

    And that was to mentally prepare me for the bill.

    The next time I pay over $100 at Benihana, I expect to get the "Happy Finish."

    Well, considering it is japanese cuisine, I'm sure they can dig up a squid or octopus for you pretty easily.

    :lol::lol:

    Srsly tho, look for a local non-chain hibachi.
