Hibachi in Alexandria area or suggestion for kids?

We have 2 little girls and 5 adults going to dinner on Saturday. I wanted to take the kids somewhere fun and though hibachi. But we can only stay in the Alexandria/Crystal City area. Can anyone suggest such a place or any moderately priced place that you think the kids would enjoy? I can't think of a Japanese Steakhouse (not Benihana's) around a 10 mile radius of us for the life of me.

  1. There are good options on Duke St. Generous George's Pizza, Mango Mike's and Hana Tokyo Japanese.

      Thanks Monavano. Do you know if Hana Tokyo is good? I have not gotten around to trying it yet.

        I haven't been there, so I don't know how good it is. I haven't been to a Japanese steakhuse in long time!!

    2. I don't know if this is within 10 miles of you, but it is within 10 miles of Alexandria or Crystal City: Matsutake at Ballston has hibachi.

        There's a Matsutake in Crystal City.

      2. Try Sakura Steak House has several VA locations- Fairfax or Tysons may be the closest to you. Big space, fun teppan yaki (hibachi) cooking demo, and decent sushi. I took my 7 year old nephew there and he had a great time.
