We (3 adults and a baby) pre-purchased "steak" dinner sets here as part of a local company's one-day tour package, and the tour company made the dinner reservation for us. Upon arrival, the staff spoke very little English and for some reason took a long time to find our reservation. Finally, we were ushered upstairs to the second floor, which... More

Love the food here... The lobster is so fresh. The Wagyu beef is so good. The service is good. The chef is skilful in the way he cooks.

This is my first time dining at this place. The price is decent enough for what it offers. Service is good, but you can sometimes hear 2 chefs complaining to each other while cooking for different tables. The chefs perform some nice tricks with pepper holder but I don't think it's really necessary because the food is good enough for... More

First off, it was a really fun environment. It almost looked like you were in a pirate ship. The wait wasn't too long to get seated about five minutes (although we went on a Tuesday evening, i'm sure the weekend nights are worse.) There isn't really a huge drinking menu if you're a drinker. However, if you order a drink... More

Maybe going here alone wasn't the best idea. And maybe I should have had the steak I went here to eat. But, all in all, a very satisfying experience. Groups of people seemed to enjoy the showy performances by the chefs who cook right at your table. I did, too, but it's hard to break into applause or to whoop... More

It was fun. Our chef was trying his best at English and I am sure that is why he kept dropping the things he was twirling in the air... the pepper mill was okay but was a little worried when he started up with the carving knife. Food was good and more than enough. Everything seems to be flavoured with... More

We (some entertainers from the cruise ship Ocean Princess) went along for lunch. The food was excellent, especially the Prawn Cocktail which was served in a glass over blue water/ice. The main course we had (banquet-style meal) was beautifully cooked, right there in front of us, accompanied by a magnificent display of tossing the salt and pepper shakers etc: the... More
