Best Japanese Food: Hibachi House

By Torre Borowsky

If you’re looking for the perfect take-out meal for movie night or the comfort food to get you through hours of studying — Hibachi House should be at the top of your list! There’s a reason Hibachi House remains the winner for the best Japanese food. With a wide variety of delicious food that comes in such large portions, how can you go wrong?

Located just a few blocks down from the Horseshoe, Hibachi House is easily accessible to students regardless of whether they’re living on or off campus, and the low prices make Hibachi House the saving grace for students’ wallets and stomachs.

Each dish is served with a side of rice, a salad and vegetables, giving you a well-balanced meal. One of their most popular items is the rice bowls, where you choose the type of meat you want like hibachi chicken, shrimp or steak. Each dish comes with white sauce and their signature “yum-yum sauce” will have you saying yum for sure!

They offer the best comfort food you can find in Columbia when you are craving Japanese cuisine. Next time you find yourself asking where to get dinner, do yourself a favor and take a walk or drive to Hibachi House — you will not be disappointed!
