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

We went last nite for a 13th birthday. Very disappointed. A long wait for food, chef really didn't make the evening a fun one, no interaction as usual with teppanyaki. No apple juice or orange juice available for children, seemed to have a lack of staff. Over $300 for 2 adults and 3 children for what was no more than... More

This restaurant sitting next to the Shangri La is a must for Japanese food lovers. The atmosphere is homey and casual, the service great and the food is one of the best we ever had in a Japanese restaurant. And, at least for us important, the do not give you the cheap show by throwing food around. Overall a very... More

After reading recent reviews of this restaurant, we were very worried about having lunch at the Rocks Teppanyaki. However, we we had an absolutely excellent experience. When we arrived at noon, we were immediately taken to the table which we shared with two other very pleasant diners who come to the restaurant regularly. Our drink orders were filled quickly and...

I was so excited about being taken there by our boss as we had eaten at "Rocks Teppanyaki" a few years ago and it was excellent. The first thing to note was the bathrooms are filthy! It was the first of many disappointing aspects to our night out. The quality of the food was good however the waiters, even though... More

We had a prepurchased voucher for a 11 course meal and the food was quite delicious and we were entertained by Umi who a cooked and served... More
