We walked by this restaurant and decided to try. The food was great and the service good. We have not had much japanese food before but this was so good tasting. Will definitely eat there if I am ever in Nice again.

Teppanyaki restaurants are not common, and here you have a number of table equipped for it. The location offers also a couple of private rooms with traditional japanese seating and a view on a small japanese garden. The main room is old looking and would need to be freshened up. The service is very professional and friendly. The menu offers... More

Sorry to say apart from the nice friendly gentleman this was absolutely awful! We stopped off as wasn't sure what to eat we chose from their €17 menu. A starter and a main. We left absolutely everything after trying it. The food was lukewarm and chicken was raw. I pointed this out as they took our full plates away. I... More

First time to eat Japanese for me and my wife and wanted to try something different. Was pleasantly surprised with decor and service as all meals are cooked at the table. Had a lovely prawn starter which also came with battered cauliflower and broccoli parcels. Main course of beef was very nice and all in all an enjoyable if not... More

We had a teppanyaki dinner in this restaurant with our family during our trip in Nice. Our son 7yrs really liked it because there was something to see and to do when watching their "food making show". It was also first time when our son ate tofu because it was thrown to the mouth by the cook :-). The food... More

Visited here for dinner. Restaurant was clean and staff were welcoming and polite. When we arrived it was still quite quiet, but quickly filled up and had a nice atmosphere. The menu isn't massive but there is a good choice of sushi, teriyaki and teppanyaki dishes. We both had the chicken and prawn udon soup to start, which was a... More

Make sure you get a seat by a griddle and have the chef cook in front of you. I don't normally enjoy having my food thrown at me, but I was willing to make an exception here. Such good fun and the food was good to eat too!

I've been here twice, first time round they attended us immediately, the second they took much longer because we had to wait until one of the 2 chefs finished cooking in another table. The show will keep you entertained, the menu it is not expensive at all, the sushi is good and so is the duck in soy sauce.

Went in a group of 20 for dinner. The chef's kept the group entertained with the teppanyaki style cooking, which was a lot of fun. Food cooked in front of you was poorly seasoned, no marinade just soy sauce and rice wine vinegar which was disappointing. Starters were nice. Some confusion with our meals occurred but they rectified this quickly... More
