Hokkaido is the number one restaurant experience in Cyprus. Based in the heart of Ayia Napa this is a culinary show not to be missed. You will see knives hurled into the air, fresh vegetables, seafood and meat cooked masterfully in front of you, fires lit, and if you mention that you have your birthday you will be the centre of attention. All you need is your holiday mood and you will sit in tables with people from all over the world who want to try Japanese cuisine in a lively atmosphere. This restaurant is well established since 1999, and very famous in the island for having the whole package: good food, electric atmosphere, impeccable service and reasonable prices.Fun for all the family!!

With out a doubt this is one on e the best restaurant's I've eating in for a long time and certainly the best in Cyprus. The choice on the menu and service was fab and the theatre cooking was not to be missed. I will recommend this place to all my friends that visit this great Island

Booked a table based upon others recommendations. Family of four. The atmosphere was great and the chefs were very entertaining. The food was incredibly bland and came staggered. They cook your vegetables, lengthy pause then your rice, lengthy pause, then your meat.....you get the picture. The meat was cooked without any sort of spices or sauce, very, very bland. Same...

Dear Gringo 18777, thank you for taking time to visit (once) our restaurant and review it (twice). Please allow me to apologize if your experience at Hokkaido wasn’t what you expected.

I had received so many personal recommendations to visit this restaurant from so many people that consider this to be their favourite restaurant in Cyprus that I was expecting phenomenal food. I was left feeling somewhat underwhelmed. The show was very entertaining, and had the children laughing all the way through. The food came with inclusive vegetables rice and potatoes... More

Food is cooked on a hot-plate in front of you, and the chefs are really entertaining as they cook. Food was excellent in flavour, quantity and quality. I highly recommend this restaurant - I will certainly return for both business and pleasure. Prices were reasonable for the food and venue

Have eaten here a few times now and I love it! They put on a brilliant show whilst cooking your delicious meal. My 3 year old daughter enjoys it too. Very child friendly. Can't wait for my next visit!

the idea of cooking your food in front of you while you are enjoying your sushi and your wine is just amazing. despite the fact that the restaurant was little hot inside. I really had a great time and I can't forget the sushi platter.

I have been in Hokkaido twice and I have to say that I have tried some the best sushi in my life. I had the caterpillar roll, the dynamite roll, tuna tataki, tuna blue lagoon, the napa roll and the jambo roll with my wife, accompanying it with a Cyprus white wine. I really recommend it!

Attended on a Monday night. It's a 'must-visit' restaurant for us - at least twice every time we visit Cyprus. We've been coming here for over 10 years and must have been 30-40 times. The restaurant wasn't unusually busy. We were seated immediately to what was an eventually full table. Mixed grill was excellent, although the chef's service wasn't to... More

Went there many times with my friends. Always had fun and a great meal with it. It's a great idea of a large cooking tables when you are sitting with other customers and feeling like a big family enjoying the show. Can't find it nowhere in Ayia Napa!
