My husband and I had an amazing dinner experience with our daughter and son-in-law. The food was extremely fresh, staff knowledgeable and when we asked specific questions the server brought the chef out to answer. The server was on top of her game as well. Can't wait to go back!

Literally we were the only people inside. That made me nervous, but they had 5 stars on Google so I took a gamble. Glad I did! The best hibachi experience I’ve ever had. I have spent multiple hundreds on hibachi that shouldn’t be aloud to go down next to this guy. The chef was amazing the experience was next to none it’s worth going in, I promise. I’ll be back.

Thank you so much for a very enjoyable dining experience. The accommodations for 11 people were perfect and making the reservation was simple. I appreciate the fact that the phone was answered when I made the reservation and all my questions were answered. Your competition failed at this tremendously. Your restaurant is our new favorite Hibachi place to go!! Excellent!!

This was my first hibachi experience and it did not disappoint! Alex was incredible! I came in with my family for my birthday celebration and brought my 4, 2, and 1 year old and Alex was amazing with keeping them entertained. The cook was hilarious and kept the night thoroughly enjoyable. Will definitely be back.

Our family loves Rayoka, great for all ages. With a large family it can be difficult to find a restaurant that everyone likes but at Rayoka there is a dish on the menu that all my kids (ages 1 to 12) want to eat. They all like the show and the interaction of the chefs doing their hibachi thing. The hibachi is more consistently prepared and the meat of a much higher quality at Rayoka than other area competitors. I have some picky eaters and we are there a couple of times a month with no kid complaints. Beats the hell out of overpriced burgers or pizza "again". Rayoka has my uniquivacal endorsement and recommendation.

The show was great but felt the timing was off. There was a couple that arrived earlier at our table and had already had their drinks and appetizers before we arrived 5 minutes ahead of our reservation. We ordered our drinks and appetizer and we felt rushed when soup and salads started being served immediately.

Server didn’t wear a mask. Was very concerned about being exposed. Also, added butter to vegetables and rice. Wish they would have asked. The show was adorable and everyone had a very nice time.
