The food and smell made us nauseaus. The egg sauce was a digusting glob of yellow slime. We had to shower when we got home to get the awful smell that had completely permeated our clothes and skin off of us. Do not go!!

Unlike the first reviewer, I disagree that it is cheesy. It is far from cheesy, at least for those who like teppan-yaki style dining. I have yet to find any restaurant that has comparable service or food quality. They are also the only Japanese steakhouse I have found that uses an egg sauce on their shrimp (and will gladly add some to your rice, if you ask). Even my fussiest child will devour the food here - and the kids LOVE the mini-show the cooks put on for you!

Yeah, it's cheesy. And yeah, it's kind of expensive. And no, it's definitely not authentic Japanese. It is, however, totally Benihana-style, except better. I had my third grade birthday party here and it was AWESOME. So all you RJ haters, back off! If you go here you will like it.

I have been going to Ron of Japans in Illinois since 1976. I wish we had one out here in Las Vegas. I have been trying to get the recipe for the egg yolk sauce they use on their shrimp, lobster, crab and other seafood entres. They are awesome and worth every penny.

The food is good, but nothing like Kegon in Deerfield! And the chefs are not nearly as entertaining as they are at Tsukasa in Vernon Hills.

Pros: Golden Sauce, Scallops

Cons: Boring Chefs, Price, Long wait

I have been coming to this Ron of Japan since they opened back in the 80's and I haven't tired of it yet. The food is always amazing and although I've gotten the
recipe for the salad dressing AND the egg-yolk sauce, and even if one could duplicate them as well as the chefs, it would still be missing the ambience and "flair" that only
Ron of Japan pulls off! Superb food, wonderful atmosphere, fabulous service. If you
haven't tried them yet, that's okay... I don't mind keeping them a secret!
