Sitting around the grill watching the chef's prepare the food right in front of you was great. The chef's do some juggling of the salt and pepper containers and their utensils. The food was great and we could just keep ordering until we were full.

The Teppan Yaki food is savoury, and the service attentive. Everything was fresh and tasty, prepared to perfection. On the food and service front you will be pleased - with perhaps the exception of the beef (was far more chewy than expected). Something to get...More

We always enjoy the proper Teppan Yaki experience – where food is cooked right in front of customers sitting up around a U-shaped counter. It’s very sociable and a good chef provides entertainment whilst cooking. This was an average experience – we’ve had many better...More
