Japanese Restaurants in Chino

At Kingswood Fusion Pots, diners customize their own shabu-shabu bowls from a menu of pan-Asian broths and familiar and exotic add-ins. After selecting a brothy base such as Japanese miso or Korean kimchi, guests pinpoint the ingredients they want to simmer in their soup, choosing from proteins ranging from sliced pork, chicken, and seafood to beef tripe and fish dumplings. Each shabu-shabu feast also includes accompaniments of mixed vegetables, rice, and umami-packed sauces. All the components are served to diners at a slick, onyx-colored counter where built-in induction burners keep pots of broth bubbling and keep ravenous ice sculptures at bay.

Since its inception in 1964, Benihana has become synonymous worldwide with the Japanese steak house. Indeed, Benihana was America’s first teppanyaki restaurant that quickly spread across the country and around the world. At a teppanyaki (teppan means “steel grill” and yaki means “grilled”), food is prepared by a knife-wielding, joke-telling chef who stands at the afore-mentioned steel grill surrounded by guests seated at a wooden eating surface. The preparation is always interesting to watch and the food is both delicious and nutritious. Ontario, California is home to one of the 116 Benihana locations where the chefs are just waiting to entertain both your eyes and your taste buds.
