“Outstanding and true Teppanyaki”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Fantastic restaurant with amazing views. Personal chef (for you, not a group) is warm and friendly, but without any of the theatre seen in Western style Teppanyaki restaurants. Service was smooth, warm and efficient. A great night capped off by dessert at the bar overlooking Tokyo lights

Expensive, but well worth it

“True theatre at dinner, looked delicious and tasted delicious.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013 via mobile

We reserved, but on arrival there was waiting and phone calls and faffing. We asked if we could have a drink at the bar as it seemed our table wasn't ready. That seemed a good idea to them so we were taken to the bar which has a marvellous twinkling panorama of Tokyo. The bar man needed encouraging as he was busy with the ice cream !! We were in no hurry but suddenly they wanted to seat us and as we were to be on a counter, backs to the view, we thought we would wait a few minutes at the bar. It became apparent to us that the main part of the meal is made at the counter and dessert is served at the bar so all guests can enjoy the lights and view.
The chef spoke sufficient English to chat and explain what he was doing. He kindly cooked my wife's sushi (tuna) as she dislikes anything raw. It was an exceptional evening as far as entertainment goes, everything was fresh and cooked in front of us. We were able to enjoy good wines to compliment the dishes, and watch the spectacle as we ate.
Would strongly recommend this as the best meal we enjoyed in Tokyo.

“True art of Japanese cooking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Beautiful restaurant. Personal chef cooked an amazing meal for me and my wife. Warning....the prawns are still alive as they hit the cooking surface....so be warned, this is not for the faint of heart. We had the Kobe beef which was very good. The entire meal was perfect. Pricey....$500 for 2 meal and 3 beers. But worth it.
