Over the years this has been a favourite restaurant for us when we visit Sydney however after this visit we probably won't bother to return. Firstly teppanyaki is always great fun interacting with the chef which is one of the reasons you don't mind spending on the hugely overpriced items - the pay off is the entertainment - well that's...

We had our XMAS Lunch at this venue. Whilst the Private room was good; the Chefs need to show more enthusiasm. They create a boring atmosphere. It took about 1/2 hour for our Chef to get organised. One Chef was of Italian back Ground. When asked does he enjoy cooking Teppanyaki; he replied "at times I would rather cook Italian".... More

Booked for 8pm, arrived at 7:55 to be greeted with 'you're early' and made to wait in the foyer. When we were shown up to the restaurant others were already seated so there was absolutely no reason for us being told to wait. The menu provides several set meals. I chose 'The Rocks' which was salmon, king prawn, scallop and... More

Have visited here before but thought after a recent family dinner here they warranted another review. I had my sister visiting from melb and took her and my daughter for dinner.

Waited an hour and a half for our meal as the chef had gone missing. A new chef arrived and we were asked if 2 strangers could join our business Christmas lunch! Service was appalling, food very average - no one else in the the restaurant should probably have been a sign! This is the first time I have ever... More

we recently bought Groupon vouchers to dine there. So the price is very reasonable for a full teppanyaki dinner in the Rocks area. The food was delicious and plenty, especially the Wagyu steak. It was lot bigger than the other teppanyaki places I have been to. Their saki wine list could be a little better. It is on the expensive... More

We purchased a Groupon voucher for $88 per person (for upgrade to whole lobster). It was a 10 course dinner. The dinner was priced at $195 per person. I won't pay $195 for the meal, but $88 definitely worth it! Most of the dishes were cooked on the Teppanyaki grill. Lobster was the best. The wagyu roll was unfortunately overlooked,... More

We felt like Japanese and this restaurant was close to where we were staying. We walked there and had a great time! We had the set menu that included the lobster. There was plenty of food and we couldn't eat everything. The crepes for dessert were a great end to a lovely meal. Justin was our chef and he was... More

We are visiting Sydney and wanted a Japanese meal. To help decide where to go, we consulted TripAdvisor and chose two options. One wouldn't answer their phone and so we chose Rocks Teppanyaki, to be honest, with some trepidation because of some of the negative reviews. It was a lovely meal with great food, excellent service and a good teppanyaki... More

All the food is way over priced, they only look to be using garlic and hoy sin sauce on the hot plate so every dish tastes the same. The only thing you get a lot of is the rice and that also tastes exactly the same as the chicken and the beef. Would not recommend going in summer as they... More
