I've been living near this restaurant since it opened but hadn't been till now. Always heard good things about it so when my daughter ( who loves japanese food having lived there for a couple of years ) visited, we went.
The food was good, the entertaining way it was prepared in front of you was fun, so overall an excellent dining experience.

The thing I like about this ,is you can sit and watch the meal being cooked in front of you ..The guys here do put on a bit of a show ,but its all part of the deal.
The food is away good and tasty,and you never go home hungry .
If this is your kind of outing ,then pop in and give them a try.
Some people like it ,others dont,every one has their own likes and dislikes.

The original Teppanyaki Takao restaurant was demolished by the 4th September 2010 earthquake. It has now been re-opened in a first floor overlooking the large car park in the town centre. No problems with access and parking.

A wide variety of fresh seafoods, shellfish, meats and vegetables are cooked on the tepan table immediately in front of you, by genuine Japanese chefs. BYO [wine only] is o.k. and a selection of wines is available; but I go for the imported draught and canned Japanese beers.

The staff are efficient, helpful and friendly and genuinely want you to enjoy the experience.
We dine there frequently.

The only downside is that since re-opening in this location the restaurant has become so popular you may need to book two weeks ahead to get the date and time you'd like !
