Arirang Restaurant Review

: From the sizzle and juggling at the hibachi tables to the sushi bar’s exotic platings, and to the traditional dishes served at individual tables, there’s a lot of razzmatazz at this attractive Japanese restaurant. But for all the theatrical slicing and dicing and exuberant displays, the food is central. The communal hibachi tables offer seafood and steak that are genuine attractions even without the pyrotechnics. The sushi bar’s output is extensive with many rolls made for the raw-fish-shy diner, such as California rolls with avocado and cucumber in sticky rice; for the sushi lover there’s the coconut eel roll or striped bass sashimi in lime sauce. A “tavern menu” allows for small plate dining at the bar with the likes of wasabi-crusted filet mignon and Asian cioppino.
