The food was good but the service was poor. 20 minutes before the drink we asked for was served. The champagne on the wine list was not available. Did they have to go to the local store to get some? At the end of the evening they tried to substitute a creme brûlée for crepe suzette, presumably because the chef... More

Dined here recently and whilst the food was well prepared and cooked, I can't say much for the service. For $160/head, we had to "self-serve" our dishes by handing out the dishes to the rest of the dining party like a conveyor belt. Sure, you might be served scallops, salmon sashimi salad, lobster tail and wagyu beef, but for the... More

The food at Rock Teppanyaki was delicious. Fresh, tasty, and expertly prepared. The food is definitely the highlight!!! We got a voucher for an 11 course dinner. Without the voucher, I think it might have been a little too pricey for what you get. If you're after a theatrical teppanyaki experience, this isn't really for you - not much throwing... More

We had the 11 course feast at the Rocks Teppanyaki and it was outstanding. There weren't any theatrical food movements sometimes associated with teppanyaki presentation but the dishes were expert;y prepared and packed with wonderful tastes and flavors. Well worth a visit

Great food cooked in front of you by skilled and friendly teppan chefs. The menu is varied and quality is excellent. Their Signature dish of Crab wrapped in Nori, lightly cooked on the Teppan plate and covered in a special (Hollandaise like) sauce finished off with a blow torch is a must. Drinks service was very slow as it looked... More

We went as a group of four for an 11 course meal. At such high prices you would expect an atmosphere to match. While the food was ok, we felt very rushed. The dinner only lasted an hour and we were then asked to "pay on the way out", Even unfinished drinks were collected as a sign that the sitting... More

Firstly we were a party of three and we used Groupon vouchers. I am not sure what the menu is like or prices but I felt we had fairly good value for our money. I am not sure I would want to pay full price there. The 11 course wagyu and lobster meal was interesting - loved the crab with... More

I recently tried out this restaurant with a group of work mates. As soon as we walked in the door of the restaurant we were acknowledged and offered a drink from the bar. Later, when all our group had arrived, we were taken upstairs to our table, which is a half moon design, and seated around a Japanese grill. Our... More

we tried the 11-Dish Lobster Tail and Wagyu Banquet with Hot Sake (AUD$160) and it was excellent. the best dishes were obviously the Lobster tail and wagyu beef, but the rest of the dishes were pretty good. It is located at the top of the hill so if you walking be prepared for a 100 meter step climb, but the... More
