What You'll Get
Most restaurants hide their chefs in the back of the house, where, like secret gardens, they are unable to display the artistry of their radish flowers, onion volcanoes, and knife juggling. Watch these secret creations blossom with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of dynamic hibachi-grill fare and sushi at Susumu Japanese Steakhouse in Roseville. Today's deal is for dine-in only and requires a reservation. Like time-travel portals, Susumu is closed on Monday.
Susumu Japanese Steakhouse owner and Iron Chef Susumu has been in the restaurant business for over 30 years. In the dining room, he oversees extra-large tables surrounded by hibachi grills, where talented chefs safely twirl their knives and cook lunch or dinner before hungry eyes with a touch of culinary drama and comedy. At the sushi bar, rolls are uncooked over smaller, unheated hibachis and in normally sized tempura dunkers. Watch as the chef prepares hibachi-style chicken ($8.50 lunch, $10.95 dinner), teriyaki salmon (dinner only, $13.50), or a 5-ounce filet mignon steak with shrimp (dinner only, $18.95). All dinners come with soup, salad, vegetables, fried rice, and a white-hatted chef with mad skills.
All Susumu's mixed drinks are made with shochu, a Japanese distilled alcohol with 24% alcohol by volume. Shochu swirls with beer to make Dragon Beer ($5) and socializes with plum wine in the Shochu Plum ($5). Delve into the depths of the sushi bar's creative intricacies with a Nuclear Submarine ($9.95)—eel, shrimp, and cream cheese wrapped in a spring-roll skin and fried—then return to calmer tides with a Sapporo on tap ($5).

About Susumu Japanese Steakhouse
The brainchild of an iron chef with more than 30 years of restaurant experience, Susumu Japanese Steakhouse dazzles diners with hibachi-style fare prepared tableside with fresh ingredients and show-stopping cooking methods. Nighttime noshers take a front-row seat to the spectacle of Susumu’s trained chefs twirling knives, flipping eggs, and constructing active onion volcanoes on the sizzling grill. Lemon chicken, teriyaki beef, hibachi prawn, and veggie specialties sputter and pop tableside like Thomas Edison’s short-lived invention, the electrified tablecloth, setting the stage for inventive desserts, such as tempura ice cream or banana spring rolls. The sushi bar’s chilled appetizers and rolled samplers provide a delicious alternative to grilled entrees, and a yakiniku menu features Japanese barbeque.
