$25 for $50 Worth of Hibachi Dinner
The steak-house menu begins with appetizers such as shrimp shumai dumplings ($5) and fried soft-shell crab ($8). Hibachi entrees—served with soup, salad, vegetables, and fried rice or noodles—range from cuts of salmon ($19) to enormous combos of filet mignon and shrimp ($28). Diners can sip on libations from the bar, including imported Kirin Ichiban beer ($8.75), hot sake ($5.50+), and French martinis ($9).
From outside, the understated façade of Banzai Hibachi doesn’t belie the fast-paced culinary action-taking place within. Around teppanyaki tables, diners watch fires blaze while master chefs toss fresh vegetables and meats with flair, flipping them in the air or letting the morsels sizzle on the grill. Behind the oyster and sushi bar, still more chefs brandish their considerable knife skills and assemble raw delights—delicately arranging pieces sashimi and maki to spell out SOS across platter islands.
