There’s a new Japanese Steakhouse at 116th Street and Allisonville Road behind CVS. Where once Volcano Japanese Steakhouse was located, there is now the new Baba’s Japanese Steakhouse which opened its doors on June 13.
The owner, Baba, said with his 30 years of experience working for Benihana and other restaurants in Chicago and elsewhere, he brings a vast knowledge of Japanese steakhouses to Fishers.
The restaurant, which he says uses only fresh products, features hibachi-style cooking and sushi.
“People love the hibachi style with the chef coming out and cooking for the customers,” he said.
Baba said his restaurant differs from a Benihana in that Baba’s will give you a more personal touch.
“Benihana is more like a franchise – like a McDonald’s. They don’t really care about customers. We are a family restaurant and we care about each customer and we make sure that they’re comfortable here,” he said.
Baba’s Japanese Steakhouse is open for lunch Tuesdays through Saturdays from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and for dinner Tuesday through Sundays from 5 to 10 p.m. If you go before Aug. 15, you can take advantage of Baba’s grand opening special of 30 percent off.
“You’ve got to come see me, because I’m experienced. If you’re going to spend money, come spend money with me so you get quality food and a quality show. You know we put on quite a show for the customer too,” Baba said.
Baba’s takes reservations for five or more people. For more information call 577-6688.
