Visited for with workmate. Had Tepp-an-yaki chicken and seafood! It was yum. Great service ended with really nice ice cream based desert. Recommend it to anyone who like Japanese food and visiting or living in Christchurch. A little costly but considering it’s location, taste and service my score is 7/10.

We enjoyed a mid week catch with friends here. The restaurant was quiet but the staff treated us with a welcoming smile and took us over to the teppanyaki seats. The wine selection was good with a varied selection and reasonable prices. The teppanyaki chef was pleasant and greeted us when he came over to us. I enjoyed the salmon sushimi as it was very fresh. The plate was also well presented. Others enjoyed the tempora vegetables and salmon. The mains were cooked perfectly. I had the venison where others had chicken and fried rice. All in all it was a nice experience!

Thru First table, we dine here after our weekend holiday from Hanmer Springs..
We ordered Teppanyaki set menu (seafood chicken and beef) and Sukiyaki. We asked for tempura prawn (entree) as part of the set menu only to find out in our bill that it was separate.. (not sure though if we communicated it properly) They offered drinks, asked for our order, checked on our meal and tea at the end.. In the middle of our meal, we asked for water.. The food was good but not really extra ordinary..
And it was a birthday dinner as well, we went home full.. Thanks to First table, if not, the food will be pricey for its quality..

The restaurant is beautiful and the wait staff were lovely but the chef seemed a bit stuck up. Food tasted lovely but both my beef and venison were overcooked. Very expensive for the amount of food and wait to receive it. Stopped for takeaway on the way home. If I was to compare apples with apples Tony's Teppanyaki is way better.

I recite rly went on a double date night to Yamagen. The teppanyaki was great food. The chef did a great job with the food and had great skills. I would love to see a bit more showmanship for a teppanyaki style meal. The appetiser of fried chicken from the kitchen was really good as well. Overall good time.
