You cannot not love this place. I've been going to Arirang since I was a teenager. Located in Great Kills, it's a fun place for all ages. It has what comes close to authentic Japanese decor. I'm not sure that all Asian employees are Japanese though. The servers kimonos are always beautiful. You can choose Hibachi or a regular table. Although, unless you're going for sushi, I'm not sure why you wouldn't sit at a Hibachi table. Parties of all sizes are seated at one table as I believe there are up to 10 seats available per table. Once seated, there are a variety of choices of appetizer including soups and sushi items. For Hibachi, there are many items including beef, seafood, chicken or vegetarian. Fried rice can be made without egg (big plus for vegans). Antics always ensue. The chefs are usually well trained in Hibachi methods and bring their own personality to the table. They often toss food around, whether it's into their own hats or someone's mouth, it makes for a very entertaining time. The heart shaped rice beat is always a favorite. For dessert, skip what comes with the meal and get the fried ice cream! You will not regret it. If you're going to kill your diet, go all the way!
