Type: Japanese, Sushi, Cooking Special features: Kid friendly Description:

Dinner at this hibachi restaurant starts with savory onion soup followed by a salad and then a shrimp appetizer. The chef shows off fancy shrimp-cutting maneuvers, tosses cut-up zucchini into open mouths and makes an onion volcano. Best in his repertoire is spicy chicken, followed by steak. Scallops, though, are overcooked.

A cavernous, cacophonous dining room holds 18 tables, each seating 11 to 12.

Lunch costs $9 to $13.75; dinner, $17.10 and up.

Cooking classes are available on weekends. Their chef training program, in which participants train for one to two hours on a Sunday afternoon, can allow the graduate to cook for four or eight friends and family members on a weekday night.

"One of our chefs stays with you," said restaurant manager Francis Lee. "You have the whole table to yourself."

Cost is $140 for one chef to feed four people or $250 for eight diners.

Hours: Monday-Thursday: 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m.; 5-10 p.m.
Friday: 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m.; 5-11 p.m.
