We stay at the Intercontinental and are glad to have this restaurant around. The style is great, the food is excellent, the service is perfect and friendly and welcoming, the teppanyaki chef we had was so funny. Great food in a great atmosphere. Looking forward to the next time.

Two great evenings at the teppan-yaki specials. Great value, with good food (the steak was gorgeous) & a wonderful show by the chefs! The air-con is fierce, no bare shoulders.

We visited on a specific night when the sushi experience was on offer and the quality of the sushi, the variety was excellent. I would say that the decoration of the restaurant on entering and the music being sung was not in tune with what I would expect a Japanese restaurant should be.

This is truely an upmarket Teppanyaki, as good as any in Japan. Feels quite strange being in Bali eating here but it is a must try. Ate with family and the watched the Chef's Flying Knife display.

The food was OK, but the "show" was not as good as I have seen at many other Japanese grill-type restaurants. And it's very expensive, especially when you add the tax and mandatory service charge. I wouldn't recommend it if you weren't staying at the Intercontinental, and probably not even if you were staying there.

Service and facilities were first class. Ambiance was also good, as was the food. We always eat here at least once every time we stay at the Intercontinental Hotel. Prices not cheap.

Wait staff were attentive and very friendly, and specials were amazing - taste refined, un-rushed, and exquisite. Didn't expect to find such delicate Japanese-style tuna caparccio on Bali, even less in as established a hotel as the Intercontinental (noveau cliche in Bali is to eat out in the "new wave" of independent restaurants). Surprisingly good value for money - kids... More
