Ate here early (18:00) on a Saturday night with our daughter and her boyfriend before driving home. Great service, good food but it is a very rushed experience

I'd not been to Tepanyaki for years and was really looking forward to it. The last time I went, I took Clients the food was great, chefs entertaining, it was welcoming and fantastic service. Not sure why I took so long to go back.

This visit however was very different, not the food that was really good. The chef was entertaining, although it did seem like he'd performed the routine once too often that night and lacked a little enthusiasm. The problem was the waitress, definitely in need of a personality transplant. We arrived, our friends another couple were already there. We sat down, ordered drinks, which came quickly and literally two minutes later they asked for our food order, we asked for a couple of minutes, the waitress replied quite abruptly that we had timings. We hadn't arrived late, it wasn't overly busy, she was just rude. When the tepanyaki table was ready, we were ushered to our seats. We had an amazing dinner after which we were quickly ushered to a table for coffee and dessert.

It was a strange experience, a little like a production line.

We went to this restaurant for New years Eve as it was directly opposite our hotel; we were in a large group of 6 couples. We had to wait in the waiting area/bar and decide what we wanted to order there although the table was booked for 9pm we didnt get around the hot stove till about 9.45...we were all starving.
Our chef was friendly and was a very good cook although a lot of butter and salt was used but it tasted delicious! There was plenty of dishes and full to the brim by the end of it. Great egg yolk game to play within the group which created more atmosphere.
To eat desert you had to go back in the bar and eat it there..I managed to squeeze some chocolate cake in. Definitely worth the money and would return if I were to go back to Leeds.

Went here for a Hen party and was not disappointed. It was my first time experience of Tepanyaki and enjoyed it so much that I went back a few weeks later as part of a couple with another couple and enjoyed it as much second time around!!
