Where can the results for previous polls be found? There aren't many Hibachi restaurants in TR. I'm predicting that the winner will be one of those 3! :) Ok I'll bite. (Get it?) My vote is def for Osaka. While they dont put on a traditional Hibachi "show", they are my pick for best food...

Ikko is very good and I also like Umi on Fischer Blvd. (Bellcrest Plaza).

I live right near Umi, but have never tried it. I will give it a try.

None of them touch Fuji in Forked River - best around.

hana stinks big time, ghetto..same goes 4 bellcrest spot.. SHOGUN is over-rated like Kim Kardashian .. Looks Good from the front, Even Better from the back but only tastes good when drunk... agreed Brick's ikko is superb in both customer service & quality of food.. two things most establishments seem to forget,
