“Great Japanese food”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

Came with family, 6 adults and 4 kids---- made a reservation for the teppan table--- I'd say the whole point in dining at Kimpura is having the teppan table--- with the food cooked right infront of you. A novelty in itself especially if you have kids with you! Also ordered shrimp tempura, which was great! Be prepared, though, to smell like you' personally cooked your dinner!!! Good food, though----- and would definitely come back.

“Fast and Efficient”
Reviewed September 7, 2013 via mobile

We were a party of eight. Orders were efficiently taken. Cooked foods were of the right quality. The raw items were fresh. Service was a plus. Good value for money

“HORRIBLE SERVICE”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

Ate here on a Friday night. Waiter took our orders at 8:15 PM. The rice, tempura and sirloin steak only arrived an hour later. No apology from the manager, just excuses that "seafood rice" actually takes a while to cook (what??? 1 hour to make fried rice??? really?)

Such a shame.

“Love their ebi tempura”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

Stayed in a private room with my group of friends. My favorites among the food we ordered were ebi tempura and gyoza. Their ebi tempura remains as one of the best i ever had. Also enjoyed their angus beef; it was really good, properly cooked and with the right amount of fat.
Service was impeccable, staff was quick to attend to our requests. A bit pricey but quality of food remains excellent.

“Teppan style Japanese Fare”
Reviewed March 11, 2012

Had dinner here, colleagues ordered the teppan steak menu which included the miso soup, usual nishikimori salad, steak grilled in front of you with the usual flair and artistry accompanied by vegetables and fried rice(very good), lastly ice cream for desert. Ordered also tempura shrimp and vegetables which were cooked perfectly accompanied by soy sauce with finely grated ginger and radish. Steak quality was fair, had a lot of fat for the price we were paying. Service by kimono clad waitresses, quick and helpful. Average for the price we paid, in terms of steak quality.
