This is a good restaurant. Certainly, it's not a high end restaurant, and it's not going to be exactly like what you'd find in Japan. I've been to both, and this isn't it.

But, for a Japanese place in the US, it's not bad at all! In fact,

Fuji San in Vestal NY has the best sushi around. The slices of fish are very generous and the rolls are packed with flavor. We have tried other sushi places an the last 6 years, but are always disappointed.
No other sushi restaurant compares to Fuji San.
Their service is excellent, friendly and efficient.
The hibachi is excellent as well, entertaining and deliciously prepared.
We rarely eat anywhere else in Vestal/Binghamton area.
Bonus: they are planning to open a restaurant in Oneonta NY soon called Mt. Fuji, which is closer to where we live.

Japanese food in the U.S. can come close to that of Japan if the restaurant is located in a major U.S. city, such as New York or Los Angeles where one can find a fairly large population of Japanese expatriates. Fuji San (the Japanese name for the famouns Mount Fuji) is more typical of the Japanese restaurants found outside of the major metropolitan restaurants where the management thinks that the local customers don't know the difference between good food and that which is mediocre at best.

Fuji San (Vestal) couldn't be further from authentic Japanese teppan-style cooking. The "show" is completely unecessary, unless you're hosting a birthday party for children. For the "Hibachi Chicken" the cook added way too much of a very thick and sweet sauce (kind of like an overly thick and sweet teriyaki sauce) to the chicken, which this dish doesn't call for. The customer is presented with two dipping sauces, so why over-sauce the chicken? For the "Hibachi Steak" the meat was cut into a small dice instead of the proper way which would be to slice the beef. The shrimps were not cleaned properly. Workers are Chinese (not Japanese). I wonder if there is one Japanese person working in this place. My recommendation is if you have a desire for Japanese food, it would be worth your while to search out a better place in the Binghamton area - if you can find one.
