“Laid Back Atmosphere & Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014

After a long day's sightseeing from the Tsujiki Fish Markets to Ueno Park, we were up for a great meal, cold beer and relaxed atmosphere. We had visited some fantastic sushi bars and felt like something different. A friend had recommended Panic Teppanyaki in Minato (about 10 minutes SW of the fish market). Panic is downstairs, the environment is welcoming & cosy, the staff are friendly and attentive and the food is really great.
The shrimp & scallops were fabulous, served with crusty bread to mop up the generous garlic & basil garnish. The potato and spicy sausage were a magic match with the cold beers and the beef & capsicum (bell pepper), was tender and tasty. The chefs salad special was as crisp as his banter across the Teppanyaki bar. Big feed for 3 with beers ¥ 10600.

“Date night in Roppongi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

Our first meal at Panic will certainly not be our last. The chef and owner, Kenta Kaneko, was welcoming and easy to speak with as we sat directly in front of him at the Teppanyaki cooking bar. We enjoyed the evening special of shrimp & scallops cooked in garlic and basil as well as delicious and refreshing salads featuring many fresh citrus tastes. Thanks to our friends' recommendations, we will now be regular patrons of Kaneko-san's steel grill creations and very personalized service.

“Great food, great hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014

Tripadvisor came up trumps with this little gem. A very small,but welcoming restaurant with great food and wonderful owners/chefs. The Japanese beef was literally melt in the mouth and despite being a Teppanyaki novice the chef pointed me in the right direction with very goodrecommendations. The price of just over 7000 Yen was very good value, especially given my selection of the beef. Highly recommended and try to get a seat at the counter to see the action.

“Amazing Teppanyaki”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

We had an incredible dinner at Panic. The beef teppanyaki was the best I've ever had. It just melted in your mouth. Even the mixed salad (which was on the Chef's recommendation board" was truly fresh and flavorful.

In addition to the phenomenal food, the owner's English is terrific. We sat at the counter and watched his mastery while we all chatted. Truly wonderful experience!

“Can't praise this highly enough”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

A fantastic, tiny little restaurant, the food is too good to describe. Try and book seat at the counter and make sure you check out the specials board. This husband and wife team make the mundane extraordinary. Just go, you will not be disappointed.
