Our hibachi grills can accommodate up to 8 to 11 people per grill. For parties between 12 to 20 people, we will utilize two grills (connected) for your comfort. (Note: Weekends and Holidays are subject to exemption to be sat separately, as we must accommodate a higher fluctuation of guests during these times)
