Not the place for a quiet meal with your loved one. But brilliant for a noisy night with friends enjoying the show as the chefs cook your food right in front of your eyes with their tricks and skills at the Tepanyaki grill. It's doubtful that it will be your cheapest meal in Peyia. It could well be your most... More

I have visited this restaurant on multiple occasions during the past two years, and it is definitely, and by far, my favorite restaurant. When visiting I always make use of the teppanyaki service. The food at this restaurant is truly excellent, and so is the service. Apart from the food being delicious, it is also a great and fun experience... More

we dined here with a couple of close friends and we were delighted with the experience. Our Teppanyaki chef was highly skilled, friendly and amusing - he turned our meal into pure theatre! The food was very good; our sushi course was fresh and tasty and all the Teppanyaki courses were scrummy! This is definitely a place we'll use again... More

We eat here last October and avoided the show put on by the chefs as we wanted to eat our meal in a more romantic setting. This time we were told they only had the booths for customers taking part in the show. We left and went elsewhere. Surprised and disappointed that they don't keep some tables for couples who...

This is one of my favourite restaurants. Great service and food and all at a reasonable price. The Sushi starters are fantastic and come well recommended. And to finish if you have a sweet tooth, the tempura ice cream is a winner. All food is cooked in front of you and the chef's will be sure to entertain. Don't think... More

We had an outstandingly talented chief who cooked and entertained us all throughout the night... Really worth a visit and great value all round...!

A warm welcome at the door before being shown to our eating counter which we shared with other guests while the meal was prepared in front of us by a cook that continously entertained us with his juggling of his cooking utensils. You are able to control how your meat is cooked - in order to get it exactly how... More

The food is good but the main attraction is the entertainment provided by the chefs cooking the meal at your table. Its not to be missed. Highly recommended.

Sadly a truly awful experience. We have been here once before and had an ok meal however having taken my family here on the last day of our holiday we were all served beer that was completely flat and taste horrible. When we ordered a replacement this was still unsatisfactory and tasted completely off. For the first time in my... More
