Toyko Teppanyaki is all about the ultimate dining experience complete with a night of entertainment. Their professional chef are train to chop, toss, cook, do various tricks and games during your dinner. Tokyo Teppanyaki has been opened for the past 28 years, an impressive length of time in restaurant business.
I had past by Tokyo Teppanyaki so many times as it's situated in the centre of Chapel St but somehow this is one of those restaurant that I never get a chance to dined in until I received an invitation. I love Japanese food and my previous teppanyaki experience at Miyako was a success so I'm looking forward to have another fun night. The interior was traditional with hand painting walls made by the owner him self. They are perfect for functions or party since they owned a spacious area at the back.

I came in a little bit late but did not miss a thing, I started with ordering some cute mocktails; . They are all pretty refreshing but my favourite is the hello kitty. Long after the drinks arrived, none of the food was served. Around one and half hour from the event begin, we finally had some food to eat.

We were given the Kobe Set, start with a bowl of Miso Soup which I gladly welcome because I was so hungry. The soup has a nice taste but needed more tofu in it. Then a plate of Salmon Sushi, Sashimi, California Roll & Spring Roll arrived.

Then finally the teppanyaki start with Seasonal Grilled Vegetables, Prawn, then followed by Teriyaki Chicken, Lamb, Wagyu Steak and Vegetarian Fried Rice. My favourite was the wagyu steak and chicken teriyaki.

Desserts is a must to end a feast; Banana Tempura - Banana cream filled sponge cake in crispy tempura batter and Deep Fried Ice Cream - Panko Crusted Vanilla, Green tea/Black Sesame Ice Cream served with Strawberry Coulis & Fruit Salad.

Overall, it was a long event and there were a long gap of time between the main meal to dessert. I do think they need to hire more teppanyaki chef and staff to speed things up a bit. The price it self was a bit high since they also provide the entertainment. Tokyo Teppanyaki doesn't usually do a fire show but just for tonight, John the owner asked his best chef Hiro to do a quick fire trick. He normally only do the fire show for the Emperors Course (min 5ppl)
