Bad bad bad. The worst Japanese restaurant I have even been served. The servers are sooo slow you will forget why the hell you were there. If you want hibachi, grt an iron and fix it for yourself I tell you thats faster. However if you r tying to be smart and call them before you get there so you dont have to wait. Haha funny you its HIBACHI AT JENKINTOWN. The owner will give uou the dirtest look and say he got another reservation. I went to their reataurant two days in a raw and left without getting any food cause i was starving waitting for them to get my ORDER. NOT FOOD. Even though they got your order. Dont think your food is on the way. Its just fools hope. I got quodoba instead and with much less money much convinent.
The sushi guys are great. Just suka that i will neer see them again. I CAN NOT STAND WITH SOMEBODY LIE AND GIVE DIRTY LOOK LIKE THAT CAUSE THATS MEANS MUCH MORE THAN WHAT IT SAYS.

My first Hibachi experience was Friday evening and I had a great time. The food was delicious. I ordered the fillet & scallops, my boyfriend the chicken & shrimp. We also split a volcano roll, OMG it was one of the best sushi rolls I ever had. The staff were very friendly & accommodating while we waited for the rest of our party. Our chef was very entertaining & fun, just watch out for the slot machine he will ask you to pull, I was tricked. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to my friends!

am just completely blown away but what I just encountered when speaking with Tony the manager at Hibachi. My company and I have been long term patrons and spend several thousands of dollars there each year in large group dinners. We had a confirmed reservation for 15 people and had a confirmed gift certificate paying for those 15 people that a credit card had already been provided for as well as a drivers license for verification. I had planned a group dinner two days from now, made all travel arrangements for the group, and Tony the manager has now refused to honor the gift certificate. I asked to speak to the owner and he refused to put me in contact with them. Its a shame that his attitude will now cost the restaurant a lot of money. He was very unwilling to work something out. I even offered my own credit card as a back-up and he still refused to honor the gift cerficiate. DONT GO THERE. RUDE SERVICE BY MANAGEMENT.

As long-term patrons of Hibachi Japanese Steak House of Jenkintown, PA, my family and I have relished numerous fine meals dating back to the grand opening of the facility several years ago. Our favorite delicacy has always been the various sushi selections, which in our opinion are among the most savory in the city. We also enjoy the casual ambiance considering my line of work often requires that I dress casually and therefore, I do not feel misplaced visiting Hibachi with my family after a day at work.

It is not uncommon for us to visit the restaurant weekly and on occasions we have easily spent nearly $200.00 and offered gratitude for services at 20 percent during each visit. In fact, our frequent visits to the sushi bar have enabled us to form associative bonds with much of the staff and management. With an unofficial count of more than 50 visits to Hibachi with family and friends and with purchases totaling more than $1000.00 spent over the years, patrons such as my family are bound to make some connections with staff members.

However, on September 30, 2006 the decorum changed for my family and me when suddenly we are asked to present identification after a meal. Some of you may be wondering, ?What is the big deal??

For us, part of the issue is grounded in principle. First, we were regulars at Hibachi for years and never had a problem with credit card payments in the past. We were far from first-time, unknown patrons to the Hibachi staff and management. Second, my line of work requires a sharp sense of instinct and the ability to ask detailed questions---which I did ask of management after my families? new experience. Replies from staff and management were frolicky in nature, scattered and grounded in falsified facts.

For example, when management was asked when ID requirements commenced, I was told the restaurant began seeking identification from all patrons making any purchase two months prior to my families? September 30, 2006 visit. The manager?s statement is fictitious. We have receipts with purchases from Hibachi under a month in duration and we were not required to present identification. Furthermore, several groups of our friends who live in the surrounding suburbs and Chestnut Hill vicinity were never asked to present identification after recent purchases.

Certainly, we understand the significance of requiring identification in situations where the probability of making fraudulent charges are high or where identification checks might deter unlawful spending relative to individuals suspected of such behaviors. However, a restaurant consisting of a low to moderately priced menu, casual dress code, kid-friendly environment and located in a strip mall is not the place where the likelihood of fraudulent purchases occur. Perhaps the Hibachi management spends too much time devising pseudo-investigative techniques from televised detective shows.

Without going into further detail, the context of the identification request from my family was unwarranted. There was no preclusive visible warning(s) statement that the restaurant has an identification rule for all patrons after each purchase, which may be legally required, if the restaurant is acting as the deliberative counsel and requesting identification. Patrons have the right to decide whether or not they want to be subjected to the implicit undertones of ID request requirements. Without pre-warning, Hibachi is infringing upon the use of discriminatory tactics possibly with specific groups considering that Hibachi offers no universally official, regulated record/model of identification requirements until AFTER one has completed a purchase.

Also, we must not forget that America is still considered to be a democratic society regardless of its changing political climate. There are still rules and laws and Hibachi staff cannot devise its own without warning or official regulation.

Freedom of choice is an inalienable right and many law-abiding Americans, for whatever reasons may choose not to always carry identification. It is their right. Does this mean that such individuals are not welcomed at Hibachi? Is Hibachi indirectly and inadvertently implementing discriminatory tactics reminiscent of Crow? I cannot say for sure, but for some people Hibachi?s ? screened-new-identification-practices? without forewarning puts the restaurant on shaky ground.

PROS: Sushi Variety
CONS: Questionable identification practices

If you enjoy true japanese cuisine, you may want to keep looking as its not that authentic here. Hibachi is where you go if you want moderately priced food with a show...by your chef! I've gone to this Hibachi a fw times and its always fun. My favorite part of it is when the chef makes a roman candle out of an onion. Go get your crew and take 'em all there or if you want o stuff yourself to death along with them go to Buca di Bepo's right past Plymouth Meeting Mall.

I love hibatchi places. They're just fun. And I love the food.

That said, this was probably my least favorite of the 4-5 that I've eaten at. The food was fairly typical for the genre. I like it, which helps, but this place certainly wasn't particularly special.

I went with my girlfriend, for whom this was a first hibatchi experience. She enjoyed it, but I think she sensed my disappointment.

Our chef was clearly somewhat new. His "tricks" weren't very polished, he didn't have that good a variety, and none of them were particularly impressive. He missed a couple of fairly basic tosses that he attempted.

Love the type of restaurant, the food was good, but what you're paying for here is the entertainment as your food is prepared. Our chef, at least, was somewhat lacking.

PROS: good food
CONS: chef needed more experience
