The popularity of this chain - there are two branches in London but more than a hundred around the world - lay in its 'food as theatre' concept. It's teppanyaki dining, which means diners sit around a hot plate (a teppan) where a chef - all flips and tricks with some very sharp knives - creates Japanese stir-fries and staples. Sushi, understandably, comes separately.
Dishes range from edamame, prawn tempura and chicken yakitori appetisers to hibachi teriyaki sirloin steak, miso black cod and the signature 'seafood palace' - lobster, scallops, black cod and salmon. Each of the teppanyaki dishes comes with salad, hibachi vegetables, Japanese onion soup, a prawn appetiser and steamed rice.
Set lunches, sushi combos and bento boxes prove popular, too.

After a good review from my friend I decided to visit this Teppanyaki place on Kings road.
Downstairs took us to a whole different world !! Beautiful and spacious restaurant I couldn't imagine from outside and nice cocktails (Lychee Mojito was goood). Personal chef comes to cook right in front of us, talking, making flame onion (I could feel the heat!) Their Wagyu beef was on promotion and affordable price ￡59 with soup, salad, sushi, fried rice, prawn, and great steak. my cloth smell of food a bit but it's ok.
