The term hibachi stems from a rich history of Japanese culture. It comes from the term, “teppanyaki” which means “grilling over a metal plate” in Japanese. In the mid-1900s, the first hibachi-style restaurant opened and was a large success. At these restaurants, guests sit around a large, hot grill, while their chef prepares their food in front of them, creating an intimate feel. Hibachi dining is a fantastic way to socialize, expose yourself to other cultures, enjoy some entertainment and devour some delicious food.

Hibachi chefs are entertainers just as much as they are chefs. Displaying skillful tricks involving utensils, eggs, oils, and even tossing bites to catch in your mouth, a hibachi experience is never dull. These chefs are extremely experienced and well-trained and know how to make some fantastic Japanese dishes. Your whole table will be joking, laughing and enjoying their food, sometimes mesmerized by the flaming grill and tricks being performed in front of them.

Not only does the experience make Sakura a great option, but the food does as well. Offering noodles, chicken, pork, steak, fish, shrimp, vegetables, fried rice, sushi and more, the food at Sakura is extremely well-prepared, seasoned and extremely tasty. The hibachi experience makes the food taste even better.
