Amazing food. We showed up early to our booking so had a drink in their well stocked bar. Nice touch was the complimentary Sake while we waited. When we had our sitting the food was fantastic. We choose one of the banquet options and weren't disappointed. Everything was cooked well and tasted great. The service couldn't be faulted, we had... More

The food we had here was very fresh, flavoursome and prepared and presented in a timely manner and staff were attentive when it came to our drinks.. we left feeling very satisfied. The chef was very accommodating with others dietary requirements not affecting others in the group, it wasnt the most entertaining teppanyaki ive been too but was good enough.

This Teppanyaki restaurant cooks decent food but taste wise can be found at any other teppanyaki restaurants. The chef was accommodating and knows how to accommodate for dietary requirements. Not entertaining or provide an enjoyable experience either. Wait staff preferred cleaning up instead of serving, had to fill my own wine after 20 minutes of having any empty glass. If... More

Over the years this has been a favourite restaurant for us when we visit Sydney however after this visit we probably won't bother to return. Firstly teppanyaki is always great fun interacting with the chef which is one of the reasons you don't mind spending on the hugely overpriced items - the pay off is the entertainment - well that's...

We had our XMAS Lunch at this venue. Whilst the Private room was good; the Chefs need to show more enthusiasm. They create a boring atmosphere. It took about 1/2 hour for our Chef to get organised. One Chef was of Italian back Ground. When asked does he enjoy cooking Teppanyaki; he replied "at times I would rather cook Italian".... More

Booked for 8pm, arrived at 7:55 to be greeted with 'you're early' and made to wait in the foyer. When we were shown up to the restaurant others were already seated so there was absolutely no reason for us being told to wait. The menu provides several set meals. I chose 'The Rocks' which was salmon, king prawn, scallop and... More

Have visited here before but thought after a recent family dinner here they warranted another review. I had my sister visiting from melb and took her and my daughter for dinner.

Waited an hour and a half for our meal as the chef had gone missing. A new chef arrived and we were asked if 2 strangers could join our business Christmas lunch! Service was appalling, food very average - no one else in the the restaurant should probably have been a sign! This is the first time I have ever... More

we recently bought Groupon vouchers to dine there. So the price is very reasonable for a full teppanyaki dinner in the Rocks area. The food was delicious and plenty, especially the Wagyu steak. It was lot bigger than the other teppanyaki places I have been to. Their saki wine list could be a little better. It is on the expensive... More

Neighbourhood Profile
The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and sailors from the old nation. As the oldest neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone streets host more than 100 heritage sites and buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney, Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi “ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The weekend markets at the Rocks are where you can find local artists' hand-made souvenirs, organic food and designer jewelry in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. To enjoy some of the best Australian and international contemporary art, the MCA museum is open every day and select evenings. At the end of a long day of sightseeing, be sure to save energy to dance the night away at the area's many late night entertainment venues.
