We made a reservation and was made to wait 20 minutes. The chef was not very thrilled to be there and the food was just ok. It needs modern renovations, the wall to wall photo's were just tacky. Not worth the drive and wait for a mediocre meal experience.

Always busy. You need reservations on weekend or the wait is horrible. Lots of parties and special occasions celebrated there. Cooks are entertaining and everything is very fresh and good. One of the best in Tustin.

Teppan or Teppanyaki cuisine as noted on the website is derived from the Japanese language and translates to the grilling of steak, chicken and seafood on an iron plate. We were a group of ten for a bday celebration. Turns out they make a big deal on your birthday, taking your picture, bringing a ceramic kitty and singing to you,... More

The chef did an excellent job. Shrimp, scallops, and meat were all very tasty and perfectly cooked. Miso soup was better than most. The entertainment of watching the chef dazzle us with his knives made it kid-friendly. My only complaint, an a significant one, is that as soon as some in our party were done eating, a waiter or waitress... More

We love to come here as a family. All the tables seat 8, so you are usually paired with another group.

This place not only has excellent food, it is cooked in front of you on a Teppan grill. They put on quite a show, complete with fire! They have quite a varied menu. I always order one of their combos, usually a steak and shrimp. The dinners are served with both soup and salad, both of which are great. If... More

We've been going there for many years. Great service and excellent food. We go mostly for lunch since it's a little cheaper. Their fried rice is better than Benihana's.

We decided to take our daughter to Koki's Teppanyaki Grill in Tustin. We invited the grandparents, aunts and uncles and cousins. The restaurant is a great, high energy establishment and the chef did his job to feed and entertain our party. Food was great and so was the party. They even gave us a 20$ certificate for the next time...... More

First time experience. This place, Koki's, was a real treat! We didn't feel herded in, felt very welcome by sincere employees. Our server was very nice, very complimentary and made sure we were comfortable and answered questions very politely. Here comes the cook! What a delightful and entertaining young man. His conversation was very friendly, respectful and not scripted. He... More

I love teppanyaki and really want it to be good, but this was only average. The banter of the chef was fine, especially with the kids, but the flavors in the food were not well-matched. The chicken was rubbery; the veggie had been refrigerated too long before use. The fried rice was fine; the steak was average. The service for... More
