Located in lovely Parap shopping centre with a full kitchen of cooks on a Sunday night. Freshly cooked and flavoursome food with attentive staff (which can be a problem in Darwin). Next time I'll come back for their specialty- teppanyaki.

We found this gem in a suburban shopping strip in Parap, Darwin. Fantastic food and exciting teppanyaki service. A great lot of fun with the kids. If you don't have a car, it's an easy taxi ride from Darwin.
