We were invited to join friends for a birthday celebration. Everyone had a fantastic time. The food was excellent and the show by the chef was even better. We had to wait to be seated (even with our reservation) and it took some time for...More

Wanted a Teppanyaki dinner, didn't have to be Benihana. Local places are usually just as good or better. We had the tenderloin with chicken and scallops. Salad was crisp, cold and fresh. Hubby loves the dressing that these places typically use. Slow night, people were...More

I have gone to this restaurant for many years. The food is always awesome. The show depends on the chef you get. The service has been going down hill for quite some time with no sign of it getting better. I hope they can turn...More

The food is a bit less expensive than the other places I've tried in town, and the quality is equal. Service was prompt. This is my favorite place to go for teppan-yaki. It's in an old Sambo's coffee shop with mid-century architecture, if you like...More

Food was wonderful as always. Service was a little slower than usual but there were 15 of us and we didn't make reservations.

Located just off a very busy road, the exterior appears "run down"and the interior matches. Old decor has not been updated, painted,etc. The proprietors are ethnic Japanese and are very courteous and helpful. The food is tasty and reasonably priced. Service is adequate and pleasant.

Although this place is in need of some upgrades and "brightness", the food is always great! The price is what I'd expect for a restaurant like this. Friendly service, great for groups!

This is a great place to eat. The food is fresh and delicious. The portions were generous. Our chef was talented and gave us a good show. Don't be put off by the view from outside. It is located on a busy street and is...More

Great food and you get to watch it being cooked which is a skill in itself as it has things being flipped, raw eggs tossed in the air and caught and so on. You can even get some of your food flung to you to...More

I've been coming to Tepanyaki since I was a kid (20+ years), and I've never had a bad meal here. Recently came here for my 40th birthday and it was like the first time all over again. As Boise has grown and seen great restaurants...More
