Excellent Food; great service; excellent presentation. The Chef cooked in front of us and engaged our Family of 2A + 3C and another Family of 2A + 2C and kept us smiling and enjoying not only the Food but the 'show' as well.

Thankyou ernie2017, for your comments. The Teppankayi experience is very popular with our guests. Bookings are essential, we have two sittings each night 6pm or 8pm and each table seats up to 11 people. Glad you enjoyed the show, a wonderful dining option.
