Japanese hibachi in Westchester

GoKarenGo Apr 20, 2009 09:36 AM


Looking for fun and delish hibachi to celebrate my birthday with husband and kids! Ideally, lower Westchester. Have heard of Edo in Pelham and Abis in Greenwich. Though it sounds like Abis is good food but no theatrics. Psyched for the theatrics -- will be my kids' first time for hibachi! Any recs?

    I don;t recommend Okinawa in Mt kisco. I live up the street and haven't been there in 3 years almost. The servers were rude and the rolling of the eyes when ordering drinks was enought to piss me off. Also they liked to hang at the bar and chitchat...Never thought there was a mangaer around....That being said the one in Yorktown is supposed to be better... Mostof thesee places everyone is talking about is good. Nothing crazy but a fun night for the kids and adults. Happy Birthday!

      So which of these hibachi places are good enough for an adult birthday celebration? Seems like Gasho has nice outside decor, while Fuji Mountain is pretty popular. Also open to those in CT since we are coming from Stamford.

        Just FYI, the place where the original Carvel used to be (Central Ave in Hartsdale) is to become a Japanese Hibachi place

          Never been myself so can't offer an opinion but many people have told me they like Fuji Mountain on Boston Post Road in Larchmont.

            I have been to Fuji Mountain a few times with family. If you are interested in good food, this is not the place to go. But then again, it is hard to find a Japanese hibachi place that also serves good food. We were in Shelton, CT at Asian Bistro for lunch and had the hibachi and it was quite good. They have a sister restaurant in Port Chester, but no hibachi.

              Agreed. I've never had good food at a hibachi place and find all of them overpriced for what is offered . I guess it is what it is .

            Nagoya on Central Park Avenue in Yonkers. Good food for that type genre. A good show for the children or visitors from other countries. Okinawa In Mt Kisco is good as well. Noda in White Plains is good also.

                Nagoya puts on a good show. We had my son's 10th birthday party there and all all the kids loved it.

                  I second Edo in Port Chester. There is also Noda's in White Plains in the "mini-mall" on Main St (same building as the DMV and Sport's Page).

                      Where is Okinawa opening up in Ossining?

                      Also, in Croton there is Samaurai, which does up a nice show.

                        At the Arcadian Gardens Shopping Plaza (where the Stop & Shop is located) on Rte 9.

                    Gasho in Hawthorne will put a show on for you.

                      I would discourage you from trying Gasho on a weekend. No matter that you have reservations (and small children very hungry), they ignore reservations, often delaying you up to an hour past the reservations. We like the food, but will not support a restaurant that takes reservations, but will not honor them.

                        Has Gasho cleaned up the place? Last time I went (it was some time ago) the place was a dump and instead of the nice serene Japanese music they had pop music playing. It ruined the whole experience. Not to mention the dirty bathrooms and shabby decor. We use to love it there with the beautiful gardens and all but I haven't been back since that last experience.
