Went just before Christmas, so the place was very busy and loud, which I'm not saying is a bad thing, but please don't go expecting to have intimate conversations, especially when the chefs get started with their banging utensil routine. All very engaging.

Food was pretty good, no complaints, but nothing that I would say I hadn't had just as nice from any other restaurant of this style.

We had a fixed price menu, and the middle one was £36 each excluding drinks.

Our first visit to a British Japanese restaurant. First grade food with prime quality steak and lamb, and huge prawn and scallop for my wife. All accompanied by stir fried Japanese rice and cooked yet crunchy vegetables. A heavenly fruit dessert with coconut ice cream put the fancy bow on the parcel.
The hostess was excellent: welcoming and friendly. The waitress was elegant, friendly and good at her job. She had also learned a waitressing skill that seems to have defeated every other waiter/waitress I have ever met: she asks whether you are happy with your meal between mouthfuls; not as you have just put some into your mouth.
The chef, cooking the food at your table, was probably worth the price of the evening on his own.
Walk past all the other restaurants crowding this area of Birmingham and give Teppanyaki a try.

Admittedly we went on a Saturday without booking a table but they were able to accommodate us. The cooking was excellent and the atmosphere was good. Staff were friendly and the showmanship was engaging. Expensive but I guess all teppanyaki restaurants in the UK are not cheap.

Went for a 40th birthday celebration.

Nice atmosphere and the food was really nice.

If you are not good with chopstick then take your own fork. I asked for a fork three times and wasn't given one!!!! Other than that I would recommend this restaurant.

Not a cheap meal (had one of the cheaper set menus) but beautifully cooked food. Service from the waitresses excellent. Maybe lacked a bit of atmosphere, but we went at 6ish on a Saturday, just as the restaurant was filling up so to be expected. Would go back and would recommend it to anyone - certainly worth seeking out.
