We enjoyed our whole experience - but particularly our Chef whose name we unfortunately we didn't get. Your servers and Chefs should wear name tags.

Our chef was amazing! He was entertaining and kind! The waitress, however, was quite abrupt and was rushing us to get out, which was disappointing.

The food was really good quality, but we felt that for the amount we received, the cost was pretty high. Although very nice, our cook wasn’t overly entertaining….the one at the next table was, which made us wish we were at the next table. Also, we were put at a table with small children which gave us a feeling of being seated at “the kiddie table”, vs an adult atmosphere. If we wanted to sit with children, we would spend 1/10 of the money we did and go to McDonalds. Overall, an ok experience but will probably not go back.

It was great minus the server. She handed everyone their drinks with her fingers at the top of the glass. Salad and rice were handed to us with her fingers in the bowl and soup was handed to us just like the drinks. Even the beer was handed over with her hand at the mouth of the neck. I didn't eat my rice, soup, salad, drink my water or order a drink. That's terrible even when we're not in a pandemic. Besides her, it was a great experience. Our chef was amazing and the food he cooked was phenomenal.

Very fast service. In less then 1 hour, we had ordered, experience done, food cooked., eat, drank and paid.

Felt rushed out. Wanted to order more and they said it was not possible.

Food and ambience are what one might expect from this style of Japanese restaurant. The downside is the degree to which diners are rushed. Despite receiving confirmation of a 90 minute seating, all our courses had been served and we were presented with the bill at the 46 minute mark. Not what one would expect / want when you are dropping a few hundred dollars for dinner.

Our experience at this restaurant was made good because of the service but I have to say that the food did not feel worth the price. My husband and I spent $200 there for what felt like a pretty average dinner. The service was really good and all the people were so friendly and accommodating but overall I would say the experience was average.

Food has gone downhill. Steak is of lower quality, tough and chewy. Teppan village has been a go to destination for special occasion but this recent visit has been disappointing with the quality of food .

Was a great place to bring my daughter for her 8th birthday celebration!!! Ambiance was very friendly. Had a great interactive meal and at the end of it they brought her a special dessert and the whole restaurant joined in a rendition of Happy Birthday to her, made her feel super special.

Our reservation was late evening so restaurant was essentially empty so not much ambiance. Our server was not overly friendly and seemed annoyed with my gluten questions (I'm celiac). Food was disappointing and not very flavourful and doesn't compare to Kobe in vancouver. The chef was really kind and entertaining and was the best part of our experience.

Service was good but was not told about up charges to get friend rice instead of steamed$5.00
They do not cook the rice in front of you like at other places- it just gets dropped off so not worth the 5$ They also up charged for extra vegetables instead of rice. Overall a good experience but found it to be overpriced for what you get

Food was ok, cook was entertaining and engaged. Unfortunately we got the feeling that our server didn’t want to be there and her level of service was poor at best. Very over priced for what you get, likely won’t be back.
