The Origin of Hibachi

The term hibachi in Japanese: 火鉢, means "fire bowl" which describes the traditional round Japanese heating device designed to hold burning charcoal. The hibachi grill is said to date back to the Heian period, which existed between 794 and 1185 AD.


In North America, the term hibachi refers to an open-grate cooking stove, typically used to cook larger items.

Our Hibachi chefs use custom-made Hibachi grills to cook food, while they perform in front of guests.
