Great food but not interested in the show

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... read more

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

Firstly, the staff were amazing, very friendly. The food was good, it was very expensive we thought for what you got. We regularly eat Tepanyaki at Moonsha in Derby. Moonsha is the same sort of money and far superior in terms of quality. That being said, it was good fun and good food.

This has been a firm favorite for many years. The chefs are really good show men and dinner is always good and a good laugh. Especially when you join in the cooking. Don't go if you are really starving as it takes a good hour before you get much food to eat. A must if there is a group of... More

This is one of my favourite restaurants in the world. We go to Cyprus 3-4 times a year and always eat there 2-3 times per visit. Super food, great staff and not overly expensive. Forget all of the pubs that do average British food - go and eat here, you wont be disappointed.

A birthday surprise meal was the order of the day. And, what a treat. From entertainment, table-side by a talented chef to tasty fayre prepared right in front of our own eyes. Oh, and the staff are all so friendly to boot. We live in Cyprus and will definitely go again. If you are looking for a great restaurant while... More
