Our friends got together after a brief wedding at Treasure Building. It was a good start and shortly after waitress kept forgetting the drinks and followed by the chef also skipped head count and did not cook enough food. Could have been a lot better!

In my experiences of Teppanyaki restraunts this was the worst. Fried rice is not cooked fresh on the bbq plate as it is at every other one. The mixed vegetables was literally just a plate of Bean Shoots... gross. Meat was cooked well and they...More

My first experience with Teppanyaki and it didn't disappoint. The food was so delish and so filling. I thought the price was good for the amount of food you get (I certainly went away feeling full). Highly recommend for a fun experience and great food.

If you want cheap Teppanyaki lunch, then you should definitely come to this place. They have 4 or 5 lunch sets that are very reasonably priced. The food quality was quite good, and the amount was also pretty good for the price. We went there...More

I have been to may tepenaki places and this one was good in regards to food but lacked the flare other had. Given the price your paying I expected a little better than what we got. The chef didn't really interact with us at all.

Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place
to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place
simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude
a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration
over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on
Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes
such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your
money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving

Yes you can but as AliEy said, don't know if they would enjoy the show of cooking. They tend to rush the service as well.
