Bought a voucher for a dinner with 3 other friends. All the food taste the same and it took them almost 2 hrs just to complete the cooking! Serving size is too small makes you eat to another restaurant after.

Although not so appealing to look at this is a little jewel I had bought a scoopon and went with my friends to celebrate my birthday. The food was lovely the chef took a while to warm up but when he did he put on a great show...we could not stop laughing! Bonus that it is BYO too!

Let's start by saying the staff are really lovely, eager to please and generally ok service wise. It's also a small restaurant so I suggest booking, walk ins may be difficult. Water service is swift as was the miso and salad service as part of our Teppanyaki experience. After that things took a bit longer. The food was cooked well,... More

I went searching for a bite in Paddington at 9.30pm and was delighted to find this Teppanyaki place still open. All the staff were so welcoming and full of suggestions. The show style bbq cooking is a feature and I loved watching the tender breast chicken sliced expertly and seasoned with the special sauces. The chef explained what he was... More

Despite the not so good reviews, we still went to this restaurant for a Teppanyaki experience and we were happy that we went! We had an 11 dish Teppanyaki which includes miso soup, salad, garlic prawns, squid, wagyu, salmon, chicken terriyaki, fried rice, egg, veggie mix, and pancake - all cooked in front of us (except the miso soup). Food... More

Our kids love going to this restaurant. They love having the food thrown at them. The chefs have outgoing personalities which makes the evening fun. We go there every time we visit Sydney.

Up to 10 people can sit round the hot plate and see the chef in action. The food was really good, and there was some showmanship, but if you've been to one of these types of restaurants before you may be a bit disappointed with the show part. However, this is a good alternative to a regular dinner evening.
