So disappointed. Set menus very restricted and you can not change around at all. Not child friendly at all. Waited for an hour for service and then whole meal came within 1/2 hour!!! Was not a dining experience at all and food was quite flavourless. Asked them to call taxi at end and refused. Def wo't be going back again!

If catching egg or having a bowl of rice to the face isn't your thing then the Rocks Teppanyaki is your go to teppan experience. We got a voucher with groupon for a great price and the dining experience was pleasant overall. The staff were friendly and our chef was highly skilled and enthusiastic. The food was cooked nicely and... More

I am very disappointed with the service. I have always thought that services in Australia will be great - friendly people and very accommodating. They won't let us share a meal until after I told them that my mother has a condition. They even took the sauce out of my mom's table. Did not enjoy it at all

If you come to this restaurant wanting the food throwing and the entertainment of the chef, you will be disappointed. Traditional Teppanyaki, excellent food, huge servings and moth watering seafood! Come here for the food, go to a Hawaiian Teppanyaki for the food throwing and entertainment.

Staff could not be found to serve us......our cooker broke down and the food .......was very disappointing. I don't know... More

It was very disappointing overall. Dined at this place on Friday, 13 February 2015. I had read positive reviews of this restaurant being an award winning dining experience. Considering the price per person, I would have expected to receive exceptional food and service. We had to return 3 dishes to the chef, as they were not cook to our request.... More

We came at 8.45, we had to Wait for other people to come before we started... And that was at 9:30... Food was not cooked too well. Our seafood was overlooked (lobster and prawns). The only thing that we enjoyed was the sorbet.. Which was meant to clean our palate. The whole course was a big dissapointment. If you want... More

Everything that could be wrong about a RESTUARANT is summed up in this place. The food was overcooked and poor, no atmosphere, the service appalling, they just wanted to get us out. Do not expect any of the things you usually get at a proper Teppanyaki RESTUARANT. The place to take somebody you hate!
