Two of us dined a la carte rather than at the teppan bar. The food was very good. The restaurant was busy which made it very noisy. It was a tad pricey but pretty much on a par cost wise with most Japanese restaurants.

We chose ala carte rather than tepanaki , the food and service were exceptional. The restaurant was however noisy and it was on the expensive side So overall the positives outweighed the negatives. I guess you rate a restaurant on whether you would come back...we will 😀

I am a frequent customer of Stamford Plaza and the Brasserie on the River. So my expectations of visiting Kabuki were high. My first time dining here, I met with a friend. Although the initial service of seating me to the table I had reserved and offering water was good, the remainder of our 2 hour stay fell well below... More

Went to this Teppanyaki Restaurant recommended by my Daughter. Didn't know what to expect after reading some reviews. I had nothing to complain about. The cooking of the food and the antics of the Chef w as nothing but entertaining. I have had Teppanyaki before in Sydney and this experience was very similiar. Don't expect to come away unscathed because... More

A night out with our Grand Sons, the entertainment was great but alas the food was mediocre and overall very expensive nearly $500 for 5 people including a 10 and 12 year old. But the main thing was my dear wife enjoyed seeing her grand children laughing at the antics and enjoying themselves.

Had tappenyaki grill lunch today and we could not fault the service or the food. The chef was very entertaining, courteous and knew how to cook well. The only very small hiccup was that they had initially forgotten our drinks order but with a little bit of prompting resulted in a quick turnaround in service. Price was also reasonable. Will...

Came here for Teppanyaki and it was such a cool experience! There was nothing special about the food, but it wasn't too bad. It was a very interactive experience and the service was good - the waitresses were very quick to take drink orders and clean up the dishes. I would definitely recommend giving it ago.
