Chicken, seabass and the steak tasted absolutely beautiful cooked just how you want aswell as everything else on the menu. I could not praise the chef enough he made the... More

Hubby and I went here for our anniversary lunch while we were staying in Southend and were so happy we did - from the spicy edamame to the sushi, everything we ate was freshly prepared and a taste sensation (direct quote from Hubby who was having his first proper sushi!). It was great to learn that the sauces and Japanese... More

I was disappointed to read the negative reviews of this restaurant. All the previous reviews (word of mouth) that I'd had were overwhelmingly positive, and so I had a fairly good view of the place before I visited. We went for my son's 16th birthday. He's a fan of all things Japanese and so requested this place for the family... More

Be warned!! This restaurant is extremely over priced and a 10% service is compulsory regardless of your party size. The staff are rude and unfriendly. The food is hit and miss...the chicken was great, the rice was dry and overcooked and the steak was smothered in teriyake sauce. Would not recommend and will definitely not visit this restaurant again. Very... More

Hello, The 10% service charge is stated on all our menus and we believe this to be a standard across many restaurants. Some even charge 12.5% - 15%. I am surprised to hear that you find our staff rude and unfriendly. Our service is one of the things that people talk highly about, even if the food is not to... More

We visited Fuijiyama for my sister in law's birthday on Saturday night, she is a huge fan of Japanese food so we opted for the Teppanyaki option. I have been to a Japanese restaurant in London previously and found the chef to be very entertaining, making the experience fun and enjoyable. Unfortunately, my experience at Fujiyama was neither fun or... More

I managed to (finally!) persuade ze man to try some Japanese food and we were recommended FujiYama by his family. We had a large selection of food but I can point to some highlights: 1. Sushi is freshly prepared as you order it. I was told there would be a 20 minute wait and it was well worth it. Fresh,... More

Recently visited Fujiyama with my wife & was left very underwhelmed! The young waitress who greeted us was very friendly & engaging. The green tea & Saki was very nice & the seafood & vegetable tempura for a stater was one of the best we have had. The creamy scallop in a shell was very disappointing. A tiny scallop that... More

Hello, Firstly, I am glad that you found our staff friendly. Also, I am pleased that you enjoyed our drinks and tempura. The scallop starter is served as one piece in the shell with a cream sauce containing tobiko (flying fish roe directly imported from Japan). Taking this into consideration, we believe the price is fair. I need to clarify... More

I visited Fujiyama with friends for a birthday celebration. Never having visited a restaurant with tappenyaki before, the waitress was very helpful explaining what the choices were. The food was cooked by an experienced and talented chef on the hot plate right in front of us! The salad and soup to start and the fruit for desert were all good,... More
