A few days ago our family went to Han Shin for our niece’s b-day. My wife & I have never been there before but were quite interested in trying it. The restaurant is rather small. In the back area there are two large grills with seating around the grills (similar to the old Hibachi restaurant in K.C.,MO, on the Plaza). There were 8 of us and we had reservations for the hibachi table area.
For an appetizer I ordered the “Spicy Garlic Edamame” which are soybeans cooked in the shells and then cooked again in a spicy garlic sauce. They were wonderful. You do not eat the shells, just the beans inside.
We all ordered from their various “Teppanyaki” dinner menu items, which are cooked on the grill in front of you by a very skilled “Iron Chef” showman. I had the Salmon & Calamari with fried rice. The salmon was excellent however the calamari was rather rubbery. Others had various fish & steak combinations.
The service was very good and the chef was an excellent performer. Prices were frankly a little high and the wine list quite limited, but if you have not experienced Japanese food, Han Shin is well worth a try. We will go back.
