Any Hibachi Restaurants in Montgomery County?

I have been searching online for Japanese restaurants that have hibachi. I am looking for a restaurant anywhere in Montgomery county where we can sit and watch our meals being prepared right in front of us. There are 6 adults going there for a birthday dinner.

  1. Ooka in Willow Grove has hibachi tables, remember to make a reservation because it gets crowded!

    1. Fuji in North Wales is reported to have Hibachi as well.

      1. There is a BYO Japanese steakhouse and sushi bar in Ardmore- on rt. 30 across from the Ardmore West Shopping Center. I believe it's called Kotatsu. I've only been once but thoroughly enjoyed it. Tasty/entertaining hibachi and good sushi.

        1. There is a place in Jenkintown actually called Hibachi. It is in the Pavilion shopping plaza right on Old York Rd. They put on quite a show, throw shimp in your mouth, etc. It's the only one of its type I've been to, so I can't compare, but it seems fine as far as food and is definitely fun. It gets really crowded, so you need a reservation.

            We went to Hibachi in The Pavillion in Jenkintown last night and the food was good as well as the chef being entertaining. When I called ahead I was told they do not take reservations except for large groups. There was no wait at 7:30 on a Friday night.

          2. There is a hibachi restaurant in Norristown in the Northtowne shopping center. The center is on 202 south of Germantown Pike. The restaurant is called Oriental Pearl and is in the same strip of stores as the Old Country Buffet. Oriental Pearl has a liquor license. The owner is very nice. We usually eat sushi when we are there, but tried the Hibachi once and it was good. The have quite a few hibachi tables. We found the food to be better here (and the restaurant cleaner too) than Fuji in the Whole Foods shopping center in North Wales. Oriental Pearl is quite a bit bigger than Fuji.
