Great Teppan Yaki Japanese restaurant. It has been one of our favourites for years. We always enjoy the tasty healthy food with nice atmosphere there. Kids love the food and the cooking demo. Good to teach them to enjoy yummy healthy food too.

Had a great time at Tony's, lovely staff, amazing food and the chefs are awesome. A bit on the pricey side but it's worth it for the food and experience. Fried chicken with Japanese Mayo is a must!

Our first time at the Ferrymead branch of @Tony's. We had a voucher that entitled us to an all-you-can-eat set teppanyaki menu, which justified the drive to Ferrymead. :-) Service was lovely! Lunch featured tatsutage as a starter (i.e.Japanese KFC), miso soup, two kinds of...More
