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!

We bought a $79.00 Deal.com.au voucher. What a great buy. The food was fresh and fabulous. The staff were very polite and very helpful. Lobster, crab, beef yum. Definitely going back!!!!

Had a 8:30pm booking Arrived at 8:15 so we ordered drinks while we waited.

We took some European visitors here for a birthday dinner this week. We purchased the 11 course Wagu special on Groupon for the 4 of us. It is a busy restaurant so would make sure you book your dinner in at lease a week in advance so you get the time you want. After starting with some drinks in the... More

We were treated to this meal by my son and have never eaten anything like this before. We had no idea at all what to expect but we were offered so many courses! The first course was a really fresh scallop. The chef spent ages preparing and cooking some oil and seasoning and simply poured a little on the scallop... More

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
