We had the private chef with tepanyaki banquet. Fantastic. He put on a great show and the food was just perfect. . As we are dairy free, we had to ask him not to cook everything in butter. Excellent prawns, steak, vegetables and good ambience.

We have eaten at most establishments along Holdfast Promenade over time, but this experience was not among the best on this particular night - maybe management has changed? The waitress was excellent and explained everything. Her space was then constantly invaded by an older, Asian woman. The entrees arrived quickly and we enjoyed them, but before had finished the other... More

We chose the smallest degustation meal of 8 courses (which was more than sufficient). All of the food was great including the sashimi and tempura, but especially the steak and salmon mains, and the service was attentive. The only minor criticism was that it felt slightly rushed at times and we had to ask twice for a break, it's not... More

We were at Marina Pier and were undecided as to which restaurant to try out for dinner. Could have gone for The Wharf or Sammy's but finally decided on Tomiko as the ambience seemed good. All that we could say in their favour was that the service was great (staff was attentive, constant and friendly). The food, however, was just... More

Never had Japanese cuisine before but wow the teppanyaki before certainly will again. Pics is high but it's like a personal chef cooking on a plate in front of you. We chose the fillet steak and the seafood and it was magnificent. Both meals come with a miso soup and rice. The rice and main meals cooked on the plate... More

We turned up for an early Friday evening dinner and our party decided that the special lunch menu was what we all fancied! Because we were so early, the staff agreed that they would make an exception, and we were extremely surprised at the size and quality of the meals. Wonderful food and attentive staff made this a most enjoyable... More

A friend and I visited Tomiko tonight as she had recommended we eat there for dinner and wow I was not disappointed. Their food was incredibly fresh and so well presented. The waiters were so accommodating and polite, especially Kamal (I hope I spelt that correctly). It is so refreshing to know someone genuinely cares for their customers. I will... More
