Hibachi in Alexandria area or suggestion for kids?

xena1441 May 7, 2008 11:12 AM

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.

    Try Sakura Steak House http://www.sakurasteakhouse.com/ 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.

      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.

        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 .....wow...a long time!!
