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!!

Fun with food - vegetarian caution

We have made a bit of habit of coming to Hokkaido whenever we come to Cyprus. For entertainment value it's great (in a silly comedy kind of way). We would recommend trying it out once at the very least. Depending on how hungry you are, the earlier in the evening you go the quieter it is like... read more

I have to say, my partner and I had good fun joking about Hokkaido. It is a Japanese restaurant in Cyrpus with Thai cooks operating the teppanyaki. Although the food is not spectacular, the cooks make for a good show. Very entertaining.

Hokkaido is a relative large Japanese restaurant in Ayia Napa. the restaurant is dominated by the many tepan tables the volume of which dictates the whole restaurant atmosphere, the chefs flamboyant show of singing, flambé, yelling, and drum playing heighten the entertainment factor if you're at the tepan, Great for family's and children, defiantly not for business, small talk or...

if you have been to these type of restaurants before, then the best thing for you to do is to sit outside, of course for your youngsters they will always like to sit inside for the show, but after you have been inside before in these types of restaurants it could get very noisy and hot for you (especially during...

I visited with my boyfriend. It was too noisy and too hot inside, so we chose to sit outside on the terrace. The food was overpriced and tasted nothing at all. It took almost 40 min until we got it. I would recommend this place for the entertaining show with flames and the japanese cooks kidding around, but not for... More

Highly recommended. Great fun for all members of a family. The food was delicious. It was our first time in a Teppanyaki restaurant and we left with the best impressions. Definitely will be returning again.

These guys put up a great show, we were very satisfied and the food was delicious. We did not go for the set menu but had plenty of food anyway.

Best with a large group of around 12 people. Restaurant is laid out as a series of three sided squares with a cooking area in the middle. Good selection of Japanese food that is cooked in front of you by two chefs who seek to entertain you as they cook. This is a noisy affair with lots of knife slapping.... More
