“Teppanyaki awesomeness!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

I've eaten at Dake many times, and I'm always so pleased with the quality of food and service. This is my first time writing, because I was there this evening for a Teppanyaki dinner to celebrate my grandmother's birthday. It was amazing! We all tried various menu items, and everyone was pleased. Dan was a fantastic entertainer and chef, and we had an awesome time.
The Dake staff are always wonderful, and I would highly recommend this restaurant for any kind of event, big or small. Whether you want the excitement of a Teppan show, or the quiet elegance of some of the best sushi in town, this is the place you want to go!
감사합니다 Dake staff!

“Fire Show at Teppanyaki Grill”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2013

We went to this new Japanese Fusion Restaurant to celebrate our grand daughter's birthday. She calls this restaurant the "Fire Restaurant" because of the impressive, if not spectacular, show at the Teppanyaki grill of the restaurant performed by the Teppanyaki chef. The Teppanyaki menu includes a selection of chicken, steak, filet mignon, shrimp, scallops, salmon, lobster tail, calamari, or combinations thereof (CAD$ 22-40). There is also a kid's Teppanyaki menu (CAD$ 16-20). The Teppanyaki includes salad, soup, stir fry vegetable, entree, and rice (plain but upgradable to fried rice [recommended]), even with the kid's menu. The food is outstandingly delicious. After the meal, a special birthday ice cream (strawberry sherbet infused with sweet ginger) was served to our grand daughter (she was ecstatic). There is a sushi and sashimi bar, as well as regular tables. Reservation is a must for the Teppanyaki dinner . Although the location is listed as King Street West (a major street) in Kitchener, the restaurant is at the very end of a small plaza which could present problem for finding the restaurant for those who may not be Kitchener residents. The staff are very friendly, service is excellent, and the washrooms are immaculately clean. A great new restaurant in Kitchener, Ontario CANADA. Try this one out even for lunch.

“Always beautiful food...taste is another matter”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013

The presentation of the plates is some of the best I've seen at a Japanese restaurant but the taste is not always consistently good. Sometimes I get outstanding and other times, it's just OK.

Service is great by everyone except the tiny Asian lady who is always rude with a smile!

It is the best in town and at lunch the value is great!

Worth trying!
