used a group on sunday for okinawa after hearing good things about it. not a big hibachi fan but kids enjoy it. I had the sushi for one, I'd peg it as nyc quality sushi, best I've had in northern westchester. Tried the kids hibachi, also very good, a little too salty for me but they used a very good cut of steak and nice size shrimp. While it sits in a strip mall, they've done a nice job with decor.

    I usually am wary of the sushi at hibachi restaurants and avoid them in general. My husband loves hibachi though and has been asking if there's any buzz about this place, so thanks for posting. Maybe we'll check it out since we're just down the road.

      Interesting, is the sushi better that Yama Fuji in Chilmark?? I had gotten a takeout order of Thai curry and sambal which were tasty but not nearly spicy enough for me...will have to try the sushi.

        Had the sushi at Okinawa today--it was okay, but I prefer Yama Fuji for sushi in the local area. What really lost points for me was the salad that came with it--waterlogged iceberg lettuce with one half of a grape tomato and flavorless dressing. On the plus side, service was good, and I thought the prices are fair. Some other menu choices looked interesting to me, think I would like to try other cooked items.

          I thought the sushi better prepared and fresher than yama but haven't been to yama in years. Also, I thought the sushi was cut more generously. I'll have to give yama another try.
