First visit to this restaurant. Loved the casual outdoor cafe...nice ambience for its location. I had Katsu chicken which was very delicious. The service was excellent.

“Little Value for money”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Hubby and I went there for a Sat night dinner and ordered from the main course section. We had an entertainment coupon to try out this place.

If you are seated indoors, the lighting is a lot better for looking at the menu :) Outside, it is dark and hard to see the menu pictures.

Hubby and I chose the same main dish which was the Teppanyaki Seafood one... ( I cant remember the exact name of the dish it was called, but be just called Teppanyaki seafood :) ) it was served on a hotplate although it was not a sizzling hotplate.

It costs $32.00 each and it does not have rice accompanying the dish which was very small for that price. I did ask for the dish to have less salt when the chef was cooking it so it was served with less salt as requested. If you wanted rice to fill you up, you will need to pay for extra. For $32.00 you will get 2 fresh prawns, 2 small pieces of squid, one piece of salmon about 80g (if that), a piece of mackerel ( I think, it was so dark, we cant see what fish it was after it has been cooked in the chef's sauce but it was nice, a tiny piece of corn, 1 cauliflower and that's it.

The dish is very small for what is worth so it is certainly overpriced! The ambience is okay, yes... but there are better places that you can spend you money or have a romantic night... The sashimi dish is fresh and it is substantial after all it is $32.00 for a large one...

Overall, the place needs better lighting and heating for winter and it is way overpriced unless you are there for the usual Jap food like Teriyaki chicken which you can easily cook at home yourself.. The waitresses needs to understand better English... they all speak Mandarin... I speak 6 languages so it wasnt hard to converse with them.... but if you didnt, it would be hard to get them to understand you the first time.... they just ask you to repeat it. ...
