They start you out with drinks then soup and salad. Take your food order and then the Chef comes out and puts on a great show while he cooks your food. You get grilled vegetables and either steamed rice or fried rice. Then he cooks your meat, chicken or shrimp or whatever you ordered the the grill. All the while carrying on a conversation with everyone. The food was great and the Chef knew how to cook. We were there for my grandson's 16th birthday so at the end of dinner they came out to sing to him and give him a dessert. A fun way to spend time with family and friends.

I took my family of party of seven and manager did not allowed us to use 2 separate vouchers that we had. Waitress was nice and attentive but I cannot say the same about the manager. I still have one more voucher left and I think that I will throw it away because the food was not great and it was pricey. Definitely do not recommend this place. Especially because of the manager. We were there Sunday 6/25/17 at about 3:30pm. Manager is not friendly at all. She needs to get another job doing something she likes.

For food, I would give a 2.5 stars. Service and overall experience 2 stars. Food: 1) Good - Food was good and generous portion. We ordered maguro donburi and chirashi doonburi. Portions are great and fishes seem fresh (very important). 2) Not Good - our waitress kept asking if we want Salmon. We said no three times because we want maguro (tuna). Maguro is the most commonly ordered fish. No sure why she did not know what it is. 3) Not Good - our dinner entries should come with miso soup and green salad. They never came. Part of was my fault because I did not remember it comes with it so I did not follow-up. Service: 1) Not Good - we made reservation. But the host seems don't really care. Someone walk in the door got seated before us. 2) Not Good - no one really smile or give you a friendly greeting including the host and waitress. We provided good tip but no thank you when we walked out. I dine in many Japanese restaurants and they pride for the food quality and service. But this one just don't cut it. May be because they are new to the area. Hopefully, things will improve soon.

Food is expensive, 1 cup of garlic rice is 5.99. Teppanyaki is from $25 to $35. Good thing I have Groupon otherwise I will regret in dining there

From Our Editors

At Shirasoni Japanese Restaurant, teppanyaki chefs showcase their flashy cooking chops, grilling meats and seafood on grills in the center of each table. But there's more to the cuisine than mere showmanship. Get a taste of the menu below:

  • Appetizer to try: gyoza beef potstickers
  • Teppanyaki entrée to try: hibachi filet mignon
  • Sushi roll to try: the Kintai roll with shrimp tempura and cucumber topped with avocado, salmon, and tobiko
