Tyrese Built a Benihana-Style Restaurant in His Backyard, Parties with Andy Samberg and Aziz Ansari

Yet again, we are devastated not to be in Tyrese‘s friend group.

The R&B singer, who has a Benihana-style restaurant in his backyard called “Gibsihana” (actually), invited Aziz Ansari, Andy Samberg, the Lonely Island crew and members of the Master of None cast over to hang out and eat delicious teriyaki after the Critics’ Choice Awards on Sunday night.

“A few years ago, my brother notified myself and @thelonelyisland that @tyrese had built a private Benihana restaurant at his home,” Ansari posted on Instagram. “Last night, @tyrese made our dreams come true and we celebrated @thecarolinagentleman’s birthday at the one and only – GIBSIHANA!!!! TO BE CLEAR – THIS IS NOT A BENIHANA. THIS IS A RESTAURANT IN @TYRESE’S BACKYARD. IT IS AMAZING.”

Also amazing? The actor’s catching-shrimp-in-mouth skills.

The gang had a lot to celebrate, including Ansari’s Critics’ Choice Award for his show Master of None.

Tyrese is clearly incredibly generous with his friends…and family. In December, the singer bought an island for his 8-year-old daughter. An island.
