We go to Fugi quite often and absolutely love the food. We do the teppan grill everytime, and sometimes also order suhi at the grill as well. You will never have to worry about enjoying your food, but here are the downfalls. -If you do order sushi before your teppan, you might not get it until after your chef is finished with your teppan dinner. Most people order the sushi so they can have an appetizer while they wait. I understand that they only have a couple sushi chefs on at a time and it's hard to make sushi for an entire restaurant, especially considering the sushi side of the restaurant is usually very busy. But maybe an extra set of hands wouldn't hurt? -Don't be surprised if they seat you at one of the grills and then move you over to another because the chef wants to cook for everyone at once. I feel like once you're seated, you should stay where you are. To move people over is rude and inconsiderate. But at the same time, I can understand that if you continually cook for small groups instead of consolidating, that's going to create a wait time, which is also bad on the patrons side. -As for someone talking about not being able to get change - that may have been true once or twice. Here's the thing - restaurants have to make their deposits and can only keep so much cash on hand. If everyone before you has needed change, they are not a bank, and do not have unlimited funds. That's life. You cannot always be accommodated. There are many other stores and restaurants in the strip, that I'm sure, could make change for you. That is hardly worth commenting on as a factor of not to go. Overall, the food is very good. The white sauce is amazing!!! You will get too much food to eat it all at dinner...prices around $25 for Teppan. At lunch, it is much cheaper...around $13-$15. You only get soup, vegetables, the meats of your choice, and rice. No salad, noodles, or appetizer shrimp. Still worth it and a lot of food. It's the closest hibachi on this side of town and the downfalls are not enough to make you drive to Kobe's and pay more.
It is really amazing how many haters there are out there and the only way to get revenge is by writing bad reviews. I have been coming to this diner for almost 5 years. I think the food is very good and fresh. And yet people get offended that they give away soup and salad and wont substitute for something else. How many places give you an option of free soup or salad with your meal. The KEY WORD here is free, if you don't want it then don't get it. I love almost everyone of Nicks soups except for a few(that is just my taste) The comment I saw about the place looking like it was from the 60's.... LOL To funny.. the owners put a lot of time and effort into making Nick's a very homey and comfortable place to dine at. There has been some new faces that have waited on us and I have to tell you, I have had better service recently than I have had in a long while. In the past Some of the waitresses made it uncomfortable by coming up to us waiting at the door and asking us to ask for them. Personally I like having a new face wait on me from time to time. Overall I think you guys are doing an AMAZING job and Nick Keep doing what you do, cant wait for a new special you always come up with some crazy idea and always ends up tasting GREAT. So as I bring my post to an end, This place beats anywhere I have eaten. I am a loyal customer and will always keep coming back. Don't hate the haters they are just jealous they cant do what you do. I come for the food, and the service provided is just a bonus. To the wait staff you girls are doing an awesome job, Nick and Angela, Kudos to you and Mom and Pop I know you are so proud of the kids for what they are doing and it is always great to see mama out front and every now and then you catch pop who does most of the baking. You guys are Number 1 in my book and I wish you all the best.
On August 28, 2008, my husband and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary and we decided to go to Oyshee Japanese Steakhouse. Earlier that day, my husband walked in to check it out, since it just opened three days earlier and spoke to the General Manager (GM). She gave him a tour of ther restaurant and he looked over their menu. We decided to go with our Grandaughter and Daughter. They were very friendly. We were greeted by the chefs and the owner and they apparently were told my the GM that it was our anniversary and they congratulated us. After we were seated, the waitress asked about our drinks. In the meantime we were given samples of chicken on a skewer and it was delicious. The manager came over and spoke with us a bit. He was very nice. A few minutes later we were given a sample of Pork Belly on a skewer, which sounds gross, but it was delicious also. Everyone went out of their way to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. Then came the chef to perform his show. He was amazing with his talent for hibachi cooking. It was incredible. He also had a great personality and was very witty. He had us all laughing. The food was even better than delicious. It was OUTSTANDNG. I recommend this restaurant to all who love and would like to try Japanese food.
