For me teppanyaki is about the experience. I go for a bit of a flashy show. To watch the chef make some noise and do a few tricks, show off their skills, engage with the table and of course quality food. Well. This isn't the...More

Sadly not a good experience tonight. Sat at the end of the Teppan, a place where you don't even have a chef in front of you. Food was nice BUT shockingly indifferent service, inattentive, distracted and sullen chefs. Won't be going back!

Not at Waterman place, but at 85 Riccarton Rd. Beautiful food,presented so well, friendly staff - a must stop and try. Couldn't get into a restaurant nearby, so thought we would try - certainly not disappointed. Very busy and a little noisy.

The tempura veg was good - although I could have eaten double the portion - more of a tapas approach. The service was very fast and efficient

Decent place, very friendly service. We got the all you can eat special, but didn't realize that we would have to eat just the basic teppan yaki (which makes sense). We enjoyed our meal and the servers were very attentive, but it wasn't anything special.
