Without restaurants, food critics would resort to showing up at their mother's house in disguise and grumpily declaring that the meatloaf "lacks charisma." Visit cuisine in its own home with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of hibachi fare at Osaka Sushi & Hibachi in Coon Rapids. This Groupon may only be used for hibachi menu items.
At Osaka Sushi & Hibachi, an army of teppanyaki chefs preside over sweltering hibachis, entertaining diners as they slice and dice succulent cuts of beef, poultry, and seafood listed on an extensive hibachi menu. Hibachi dinners such as filet mignon ($24.95) and swordfish ($19.95) strut their sizzling stuff on plates accompanied by sides that include clear broth onion soup and green salad with Osaka ginger dressing. Wrap a partner's lips around the Lover's Dinner For Two ($59.95), which lets scallops, shrimp, lobster, and filet mignon rendezvous on a romantically arranged platter that is perpetually serenaded by a thumb-sized accordion player. A kids' menu invites those under 10 years of age to hop on the hibachi train with dishes that include hibachi chicken junior ($9.95) and hibachi scallop junior ($11.95). All kids' menu meals are served with onion soup or salad, a shrimp appetizer, and a procession of children yelling things that rhyme with "hibachi."
Osaka Sushi and Hibachi Steakhouse
At Osaka Sushi and Hibachi Steakhouse, teppanyaki chefs preside over sweltering tableside hibachi grills, entertaining diners as they slice and dice succulent cuts of filet mignon, chicken, and swordfish. A customer can wrap a partner's lips around the hibachi lover's dinner for two, which lets scallops, shrimp, lobster, and filet mignon rendezvous on a romantically arranged platter that is perpetually serenaded by a thumb-size accordion player. Alternatively, a slate of dishes that comes to life away from the hibachi grill includes proteins slathered in teriyaki sauce, hidden in tempura batter, or mixed with stir-fried noodles. Special sushi rolls—such as the Dancing roll with tuna, salmon, and yellowtail—also cha-cha from table to mouth.
