I am a big fan of the Daikoku Suva and Daikoku Nadi. This outlet has slightly different lunch offerings, largely plattered and the tepan dinner seems to be more about the show of the chef and less about the food, which was on the oily...More

I wouldn't rave about Daikoku, but it is fine for a dinner out with friends. We had Teppanyaki in a small room, the food was actually quite good (in particular the fish) except for the beef (which in my view had the consistency of leather)....More
