Decent place, very friendly service. We got the all you can eat special, but didn't realize that we would have to eat just the basic teppan yaki (which makes sense). We enjoyed our meal and the servers were very attentive, but it wasn't anything special.

We are regulars to @Tony's and have always had a good experience. The food is amazing, especially since the talented chefs cook it right in front of you on the TeppanYaki Grill. I highly recommend the seafood or meat combinations. They also have some interesting foods which are hard to find such as Ostrich and Wasabi cheesecake as well as... More

This place was fantastic. If you want flavorful tepanyaki, checkout Tony's. It is right outside of Riccarton mall, so if you are shopping, skip the food court and walk a block around the corner to Tony's. They have a great selection of local wines and offer sushi as well. The service is quick and no-nonsense, but they are great for... More

Went there for the first time, busy place but seated quickly. Menu explained drinks ordered all good. Food was very good straight from the grill. Will be going back, staff excellent.

Had our christmas meeting here. We had the set menu which was great value for money. The staff did their best to accommodate those who were not seafood eaters. The sushi was tasty and the chefs cooked on the teppan right in front of us, was an entertaining night out. One word of warning would be to avoid the Wasabi... More

A large group of colleagues and friends had lunch at Tony's Tappan Yaki. The food was very good, I heard nothing but good comments, and my sashimi was delicious. The service was prompt and courteous. The only small criticism I have is that the concrete floor and flat roof makes for an echoey environment and the restaurant is noisy with... More

A large group booked for a dinner on the evening before a wedding. On arrival, we were escorted to the bar area until the table was ready. All food was well prepared and the staff were very friendly.
