We were not impressed with our experience at this restaurant. The quality of the food was just average, our chef was boring and not very talented. He even forgot to include the sprouts in our meal until as he was cleaning up, he came across...More

Would start off by saying that the teppanyaki is mediocre - I had the seafood set with squid, lobster and scallops, and we topped up for the garlic rice (decent, but really nothing to rave about). Service was also rather slow, but staff were friendly....More

There was much hype about this entertaining Teppanyaki Restaurant. Like all things, the level of entertainment depends on the refinement of skills of each chef. My guests who had been there before, made mention that the chef during their previous visit actually played out a...More
