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

We booked teppanyaki because we have three kids ages 8,11,12 and they love teppanyaki. We had to wait until 9.30 for sitting but we booked late on the same day so that was fair enough. The atmosphere was very somber. The food was nice but it was very expensive so I expected more than nice. There was none of the... More

We went here last night for the first time. We had to wait a whole to be noticed at the reception and despite having booked a table had to wait again before being seated. The food was cooked beautifully. The starters were delicious. The prawn and calamari salad was lovely, the dressing was great. We had the barramundi and wagu... More

The service is excellent & the food is good, good location at the rock area. Nice atmosphere, it seems that we were having Teppanyaki in Japan. Though it is expensive but it cost the same for A fine dining in Sydney.
