Such good fun and the food is good too

This restaurant came recommended and we weren't disappointed. Our chef was very funny and modulated the fire trucks as he didn't want to scare our 9 month old.

This restaurant came recommended and we weren't disappointed. Our chef was very funny and modulated the fire trucks as he didn't want to scare our 9 month old. The staff made such a fuss of our daughter and brought her sliced cucumber to munch on. Was brilliant to get behind the cooker and get invoked. IT gets quite competitive though

We went here on one of our first nights and went back for one of our last. The service is brilliant and it a made better by the games they play to get you involved. All the food we had was fantastic and we had various different starters and mains. Definitely a place to go :)

This was great fun with the bad singing and tricks. A must for anyone on holiday. Now to the food. As far as Japanese food goes it was mediocre. I had Vegetable tempura as a starter which was made from large chunks of vegetables in what I would describe as fish & chip batter. This was also very oily (old... More

Visited here for the 3rd time as in years. Although coming to cyprus for over 20 years we like to treat the kids to something different. It really depends on which chef cooks for you to give entertainment and understanding of the food you have ordered. We were a little disappointed this year as you do pay for the show... More

We waited towards the end of the holiday for this meal as we wanted to end on a high. The cooking and live show was good, it seemed like other tables were having a much better night. Not sure if out chef was new but the show did not match the food. The food was fantastic as it always is.... More

We visited Samisen the night before our wedding and they made a big fuss of us, they were all welcoming and lovely and the chef himself was very funny. He accomodated our group really well from my grandparents in their mid-80's to the younger ones. I had the tamperua king prawns to start which were delicious and huge and the... More
