As an employee there I was treated quite poorly. Many of my basic employee rights were infringed upon, including the forced payment of undocumented payments of cash to our manager. If anyone spoke up, as I did, their hours were cut severely, and they were eventually fired as I was. Behind the facade of a nice looking restaurant, is a young wait staff that works in fear of losing their job, and having their hours cut on a daily basis.

I just went here for the first time and I will be back. We had a great time and loved the concept since there isn't anything like it in the area. It is similar to fondu, but you only you are grilling your food. So you get to cook it how you like it. They have the best kobe steak and sake too.
Reserved for my family for 7PM on 10/28. No one seated us for about 30 min. Even 2 walk-in groups were seated while I was kept waiting. I complained to the waiter but he treated me terribly. I asked for manager's contact, then he said it was posted outside so write down yourself! He refused to give his name to me. He even said ""Behave yourself!"". He eventually told me his name was 'Smith'. We walked out without eating. I complained to the manager next day and he told me he was Edward...view more, not Smith. The waiter lied about his name. But manager did nothing about this guy. I used Juban a few times. OK food, terrible service all the time. I will never go again.view less
The official review editor is clearly unacquainted with the pleasures of real yakiniku. If her standard of taste is Benihana's, she obviously has very little range when it comes to Japanese food. Juban offers fresh, delicious Japanese yakiniku -- a nice variety at an affordable price. It's fun to go with friends and yes, you require a sophisticated palate.
