This restaurant is open in the evenings. We enjoyed both the main table (Teppanyaki) and also had a couple of meals at one of the side tables. I loved the Mixed Grill. The food was excellent, good service and very tasty.

We managed to involve a friend that has always avoided Jap restaurant because he doesn't eat fish. Now he know how many selections of meat and variety of preparations... More

We went for our Farewell Dinner with four friends. We sat at the Teppanyaki table, the evening was lots of fun accompanied by excellent food and showmanship by our chef Domo from the Philippines. Would definitely do again.

Our meal was cooked in front of us and was delicious! Fresh prawns, salmon, chicken, mushrooms, bean sprouts & egg fried rice all with wonderful flavourings and spices. Our chef, Jason, provided theatre and entertainment along with the wonderful food ... he explained the dishes and allowed us to take pictures. The waiting staff were also excellent. All this was...
