Ginza Japanese Steakhouse, Cockeysville

I love Japanese Steakhouses - the kind where chefs come and cook your meal right in front of you, providing you with endless entertainment of flying shrimp, onion volcanoes and knife throwing.

My favorite place to go is Ginza Japanese Steakhouse.  This place is neatly tucked into a strip mall in Cockeysville and faces strong competition from the well known chain Sakura just a couple of miles down the road.  I would choose Ginza over Sakura any day.  It's a smaller restaurant, and perhaps a little more worn but it has much more charm.  The hosts and chefs are incredibly pleasant and always willing to accomodate. 

Recently, I organized a dinner for about 13 of us for a friend's birthday and they brought out complimentary spring rolls and two tempura ice cream plates to share.  You choose the meat you like and then the meal comes with a light broth, salad with a creamy sauce, a couple of shrimp, fried rice, vegetables, and an orange for dessert!  All this for around $24 is a great deal (i *think* that's how much it bad!)

If you don't want anything from the grill, sushi and other entrees are also an option.  I've never ordered anything other than from the grill, because I LOVE their fried rice and crispy vegetables, and the meat is always cooked to perfection.  This place is great, and really fun for a group!

I'm a fan of these types of places as well. It's hard to recreate that spontaneous fun of seeing it for the first time though. I still enjoy seeing the quick knife work, and I'm a sucker for big balls of fire.

I remember that one of the first exotic dining experiences I ever had was at the Nichi Bei Kai on York Road. I was fascinated by the teppanyaki cooking, and it tasted good too! I'm not sure I went to any other Japanese steakhouse in the states, but I do remember going to one in Paris, of all places, back in '76.

Kevin - I agree, it's a totally different experience once you've gone to one - but I am always amused :)

Minx - I love that you went to one in Paris hahaha!

i love the way in Japapenese prepare the meat, is totally different to us, the spicies and others condiments that are added to the meat, are original from Japan region.
