A very enjoyable dinner out. The food is fantastic and fun to watch the chef cook it in front of you. I found it to be quite expensive for a family of four but it is something unique. We will go back one day.

It would be great if full bottles of hot sake would be available. Ordering many of the larger little bottles can end up being very expensive.

It was an experience you will never forget. After having gone 3 times in a span of a year and half, you get to know the chef's routine. Their talent is remarkable. First time - It was in the Southside location in 2011. That was my first time. it was exciting to get the centre of attention as it was... More

This site has been closed for many years, There still is a Japanese Village in the Northend and I think somewhere else in the city but the downtown location has been closed a long time and it's being renovated by another company

Took my daughter-in-law here for her birthday along with my daughter and grandchildren. Food was all very tasty and well presented, except we didn't care for the soup (a bit too "eggy"). Service was great fun. Granddaughters really enjoyed the fancy knife work and seeing their mom dressed up in a kimono and wig for the birthday picture. Birthday cake... More

If you have never been to one of those places with the chef spinning knives around and making cooking a performance art, then this is a good place to go for the experience. Food is adequate in quality but pricey. So go if you want a show. Probably best to get a reservation, which I rarely do in Edmonton as... More

I really enjoy Japanese Village. There is now one open on the south side which is the one I have gone too. We actually go for the food rather than the show and usually sit at a non entertainment table, but we have seen the chefs perform and it is cool, but we go here often enough that we don't... More

Our food was made fresh in front of us, with the chef giving us a musical show before and after we ordered. We had a slight mix up on our orders, when a different chef started us off with our salads and sauces, only to realize he was at the wrong table, but this was easily cleared up. I ordered... More
