Description: Hokkaido is the number one restaurant experience in Cyprus. Based in the heart of Ayia Napa this is a culinary show not to be missed. You will see knives hurled into the air, fresh vegetables, seafood and meat cooked masterfully in front of you, fires lit, and if you mention that you have your birthday you will be the centre of attention. All you need is your holiday mood and you will sit in tables with people from all over the world who want to try Japanese cuisine in a lively atmosphere. This restaurant is well established since 1999, and very famous in the island for having the whole package: good food, electric atmosphere, impeccable service and reasonable prices.Fun for all the family!!

We have been here everytime we have been to cyprus and its great.
This time we had a set menu and it cost €15 each for three courses. They cook all the food in front of you and give you a bit of a show the kids and adults love it. You also get cooked vegetables and egg fried rice on top of what you order. You come away feeling very full and having had a great time.
I would highly recommend a visit.

Let's get one thing out of the way. The food isn't great. Though by Ayia Napa standards it's fairly good (the food around these parts is generally cafeteria standard.) However, that's not the only reason to come here.

Communal dining around hot plates is fairly common in Japanese cuisine, but less common is the slapstick shows that the chefs put on for you. At times patronising (pretending my batter 'snake' is drinking my cocktail) but at times fantastic (say it's your birthday.. go on, I dare you!) ..the restaurant feels more like a show than a meal.

Be warned. It smacks at times of a kids party (you will get Mr Batter Snake whatever your age!) but if you're happy to go with it you'll have a good time.

Huge portions. Food is alright. Decent enough drinks. Very friendly staff.

I've had a few Sushi meals dining in now, this is probably the best. It has a clean and modern interior to boot.

We loved this restaurant, food was delicious and cooked perfectly, garlic lamb highly recommended.

Chefs are great, very friendly and entertaining. Considering the experience and food quality we thought it was very well priced. We will certainly be going again and recommending it to others!

A must for anyone visiting Cyprus.

We visited the restaurant late on in our holiday and I wish we did on our first day because the all the family really enjoyed the experience and wished we could of spent more of our time at Hokkaido. I was sceptical at first because you usually get reformed meats at these type of places but not here, they bring all your ingredients out and cook them in front of you and the taste and quality is 5star, you also get a lot more than you think you've ordered for, the chefs put on a show and you will have fantastic time at this restaurant
