Traditional Teppanyaki without the Australianised and Amercanised showmanship but if you want excellent food and service it is brilliant and we would return. We had a seafood option and the beef option and we shared. The chef explained each course and they were so fresh and tasty and we left very full. We booked ahead and were in a downstairs... More

Excellent Japanese presentation as you would expect and right in the Rocks precinct surrounded by bars and hotels. Slightly pricey but worth the experience

Always impressive to be seated at a table with a group of Japanese people who are regulars at the restaurant. The experience was good, the service and explanation was very good, we were not rushed and indeed were last to leave. The balance of fish/meat and vegetarian choices was good and the chef made the evening with her show of... More

Attended with 11 guests on a groupon ticket. Nice experience but not spectacular. We were looking forward to the wagyu dish, but the taste was very flat.

We were a group of six, who walked in from the shangri la hotel next door. We were accommodated but it seemed we were an unwelcome inconvenience. So would recommend booking. The waiting staff were void of emotion or enthusiasm for the task I'm hand, I was pretty much through my second course before I even got a drink even... More

We love teppanyaki with all the fun and showmanship typical of a night out at teppanyaki. This experience was somewhat different. It was a Monday night so ? if that made any difference. We ordered al a carte and not a set menu. The chef practically ignored us. Everyone else (around10 people) ordered a set menu and as soon as... More

We went there for our Anniversary on a half price voucher. It was very enjoyable - beautifully cooked and presented food. The cooking of the food was all the entertainment needed. Drinks were expensive and at full price it would have been excessively overpriced,

The food was fresh and tasty but lacked imagination with some significant deviations from Japanese cuisine. The service is a bit rough around the edges but still friendly and attentive. Being teppanyaki a bit of theatre was expected but ended up being more like watching a friend barbeque.

Located in a very quiet back street in the Rocks area, this quaint looking restaurant was a nice surprise. We turned up with no booking on a Friday night and when you look in it looks like an empty intimate hotel lobby. This old terrace building has been cleverly converted into a restaurant .it has a group of intimate smaller... More
