Went with family and friends and enjoyed a superb dinner. The chef put on a show cooking the best ingredients of seafood, beef and vegetables right in front of us. First we enjoyed great sushi and shrimps and then this perfect meal. Free beer and sake definitely adds value to the dinner. A perfect... read more

Here it comes off a high ranking with plenty good reviews so that I and my wife decided to give a try…probably we were not the lucky one. We sat at the corner of the big table and were told 15 minutes later there's a big party had already booked the entire place, we would have to finish the dinner... More

teppanyaki is always a good experience but when you have the best ingredients then it makes a big difference. I love the giant shrimps and the fillet mignon.

Waiters are very kind and efficient, compliments to the manager who has done a good training. Food was just okay, we order different meat and seafood, the meats were OVERCOOKED not juicy and tender, seafood wasn't fresh at all, had few beers even got sick in head the day after. Not sure it's a good value.

Price is RMB 328 per person, the price is little on the high side but choose from appetizers, sushi rolls, seafood, meats, vegetables and drinks. Food is prepared by the chef right in front of you and my favorite is the jumbo... More

I had soooo much for dinner and I remember not being able to sleep afterwards. Service was slow but chefs were friendly. However such an... More

This restaurant is in think one of my favorite! You have a large choice from the seafood to excellence pieces of meat. You can chose the way you want everything cooked and it is unlimited!!! Looking at the chief cooking the food you have just closed is a great show! The price is maybe a bit expensive (200+RMB) but it... More

328 RMB and two hours to eat as much as you prefer. Wine, beer and sake all included. Maybe a bit overpriced one may think, but when the dishes start coming you forget about the price. Freshly deep-fried calamari and other treats for appetizers. All crispy, sizzling and made to order. Sashimi is fresh and tender, super tasty. Wasabi is... More
