The tableside chefs at Timsan's grill a dinner menu of meats, poultry, and seafood dishes before patrons' eyes. After the chef enlists a volunteer to check for wires or false grill bottoms, diners can nibble on california rolls ($4) from the appetizer menu as their entrees are sliced and sizzled right before their eyes. Each hibachi-style dinner combination, such as the chicken and scallops ($21.95), includes a bounty of savory side dishes, such as chicken and beef soup, salad, and a tantalizing shrimp-and-zucchini appetizer. Main courses, such as chopped filet mignon ($18.95) and swordfish ($19.95), accompany sidekicks of mushrooms and bean sprouts, as well as a cup of tea and a dish of ice cream chilled to the abominable snowman's meticulous specifications.
The restaurant's dining room serves as an arena, granting front-row access to the world's most delicious spectator sport. At superheated chopping surfaces in the center of each U-shaped table, chefs orchestrate a rapid flurry of foods as flames jet toward the ceiling and diners silently hope the cook's eyebrows are made of asbestos.
Timsan's Japanese Steak House
The tableside chefs sear meats, seafood, and vegetables near open flame to create a delectable amalgam of Japanese and American cuisine. Sushi and sashimi make use of high-grade tuna and salmon, and hibachi dinners send scallops, swordfish, and filet mignon skating across grills before depositing them on plates. Separate courses of soup, salad, a shrimp and zucchini appetizer, and ice cream help diners remember the exact timeline of meals to make future alibis impeccably believable. Bartenders pour and mix choice libations for patrons behind a turquoise-colored bar facing a pastel mural of Mount Fuji. Timsan's Japanese Steak House also bottles their house ginger dressing and mustard so that customers can replicate the hibachi experience at home using an overheated laptop.
