Ron of Japan

Like the popular Benihana restaurant chain, Ron of Japan’s chefs prepare your food in the teppanyaki-style—on a sizzling iron plate set into each table. Each grilled meal (choices include filet mignon, lobster tail, chicken breast and tofu) is served with two shrimp kogane-yaki (an appetizer topped with an egg-yolk sauce), chicken soup, a salad, veggie rice, green tea and dessert. Not only do you get a meal, but, as with all teppanyaki-style dining, you also get a table-side culinary performance from the restaurant’s knife-wielding chefs.

I went here on a Sunday for an early dinner date. It's definitely a celebration spot as all of the other tables seemed to have a birthday or event but our chef performed for the two of us just as well. It wasn't crowded but it was a nice environment. We ordered sake, lobster tail, steak and chicken. Yes, there were two of us. That's enough judgement from you. 

The food is really really good. It's a pricier spot but you get what you pay for, including enough food for back-to-work Monday lunch.

Took my son here for his birthday with a few of his friends. They rolled out the red carpet for him and they had a great time. There is nothing better than having a chef come to the table and make onion volcanos and set food on fire. It was good, its perfect for group outing and big celebrations. It seems like everyone there was having a birthday or event.
