Had the all youcan eat on a weeknight. Food was simple and tasty. Had a few rounds of the chicken which was a highlight. The staff pretty much leave youto yourself, which I prefer anyway, but are easy enough to hail.

Such a great night. So much food I had to doggy bag. Great venue for a big group and so tasty. I would definitely go back next time I'm in town and would recommend to groups wanting a fun night out. I would also recommend bgetting the set menu and you get so much variety. A+.

Had to ask to order to get drinks, constantly chasing someone for service. Felt like I was sitting in a hot cafeteria, no teppanyaki experience. More like sitting in front of a chef just cook your food, no engagement with us, no interaction. Just looked miserable! Paid $40 for 8 prawns that were very rubbery. Disappointing, nearly walked out!

We dined at @Tonys for a friend's birthday. It was a fantastic venue for a larger group. We all sat around the teppanyaki table, which was very entertaining! Monday through Thursday they do 'all you can eat' teppanyaki for $39.50 per person. It is pretty good value for money. The food is yummy (not the best teppanyaki I have ever... More

Food and service both really good. Soft shell crab maki rolls were amazing as was the seared tuna starter. Beef and tuna teppanyaki both also great. I thought pretty good value for what it was even though not cheap

We tried the all you can eat buffet which was nice and good value but the only thing that let it down was the way you have to order the food. When you first sit down they come and take your order, no problems. Then when you are finished it takes a VERY long time for anybody to come back... More

Went here with family for a celebration dinner the other night. I absolutely loved the food, there were so many great options I found it hard to choose what I wanted! I will definitely have to be back to try more. There is a really good variety of famous Japanese foods from teppanyaki, sushi, tempura okonomiyaki and sukiyaki - plus... More
