Went with my 19 year old later Saturday and we both loved it, the quality of the food is 100% as is the service, I can't see why anyone would complain.We really enjoyed watching the tapanyaki Chepstow do his thing from our table in the main restaurant...we ended up leaving food behind as they gave such big portion sizes. We... More

The spicy chicken noodles are delicious; very large serving and very good price. The staff were all very friendly and the eating area was very clean and nice looking. A must try when in Dunedin.

Popped in for dinner and so glad that we did. Very friendly staff, fast and excellent service and great food. We had the mixed starter platter to share, so yummy. I had the Unagi Don (grilled and marinated eel with rice), very tasty, no veg though, so ordered some stir fry mixed veg in soy sauce, which was also very... More

Great place to take kids for Teppanyaki show. Reasonably priced food and plenty of it. Kids platter was excellent value. The chef was very entertaining, throwing eggs, bowls of fried rice and flicking omelette across the grill. Service was friendly although patchy. Desserts arrived while we were still eating mains. No offers of drink refills. Food was pretty good although... More

This was the first day on our South Island trip and not a good start on food, but the good thing was to alert us on choosing the right place to eat afterwards. This was also the only place we didn't use TripAdvisor to check before we eat during the whole two weeks holiday time. So we made a mistake... More

I've been here many times and been quite happy but this time the experience was poor at best. Their method of taking orders was 'haphazard' with several people being missed forcing them to call back the staff to place one-off orders. The courses came out sporadically so while one person was on their second course another hadn't had their first... More

We had a fantastic selection of bits and pieces. Every dish was delicious. The dressing on the tetaki beef salad is wonderful.

Whilst the decor and room is not appealing the food is good as is the service. We have had lunch and dinner there and both were good, we particularly enjoyed dinner. From the sounds around us so were the mainly university students having dinner.
