Very bad, nothing good to talk about really. The food was bland, the service was so pathetically Chinese, loudness, rudeness were way over the top...

My partner and I went to try this restaurant for lunch as he had been wanting to go for a while. The setting was quite lovely, the food was pretty good and the chef we had made it fun. We enjoyed it enough to want to go back and also tell people about it!

I've tried this place twice now. I absolutely love Teppanaki and the freshly cooked food you usually expect. My experience with this restaurant is that it is OK however the high quality produce is not used. the steak is chewy, the prawns small. The whole idea of Teppanaki, from my experience, is to have the very best produce in small... More

It may be fun to have your food cooked in front of you however you will be paying a premium for rushed service, poor food quality and small serving sizes.

I have just returned home from Fuji Yama. I went there tonight (on a Tuesday) for date night with my man. We were placed at a table with 1 other couple around the grill They were far enough away to give us privacy yet during the cooking/show part it was nice to have other people to get involved. YES they... More

Had a family dinner here for my daughter as she loves the show the chef's put on and the eggs they throw. Unfortunately they rush you so badly that each course is untouched whilst another one is served. One would expect that with the prices you charge that one could eat a course before being served another!

I went with family and, folks, I hate to say it... But it's teppanyaki. The chef is supposed to perform for you and throw your food to you. It's all a part of the grand experience. It's called "culture". Having lived in Japan, I know what to expect from a hibachi/teppanyaki grill, and this is close to authentic. Other customers... More

Terrible. Overpriced bbq chuck food at you thing ($250 for 6 including 4 children) the food borders on the uneatable, with the final beef course so oversauced it brought tears to my eyes ( I think it was beef). The fish was acceptable, just, the chicken and rice was bland and the whole "experience" over in 30 minutes. When leaving... More

food has too much rich sugary sauce and lots of soy sauce. I really dislike trying to catch food that is thrown at you, no need to stain my best clothes.
