This is the place to go for Japanese-lite, with a side of "eatertainment." Hard-core sushi lovers may cringe, but such inventions as the tempura oyster rolls with chile ketchup are really very tasty. The staff is Taiwanese, but there's no point in discussing the authenticity of steaks and seafood cooked on the teppanyaki, as the whole phenomenon is largely a Benihana invention anyway. Remember Taiko when you've got a gang of kids to entertain, or when you want to avoid talking to your wife's annoying aunt.
