Excellent entertainment & food

An excellent evening - the children (7 & 4) certainly enjoyed the 'show' by Joseph, the chef, & the food was pretty good as well.

We had the vegetable tempura, the Gyoza (pork dumplings), some sushi & tempura prawns to start followed by teriyaki chicken, king prawns, chicken in BBQ sauce and the pork fillet. It was all cooked in front of us by a born showman who slices & dices and flips his eggs, vegetables etc in some style.

I wouldn't want to sit through the show too frequently as good as it was though - sometimes you'd just want to sit and eat!

Excellent, excellent, excellent!

One of the best eating out experiences ever! The chefs entertain you throughout preparing and cooking your meal on a hotplate in front of you. The food was perfectly cooked. We are going to visit the same restaurant in Manchester, England next week because we've missed it already. Many thanks to the owner and excellent team in Coral Bay for a wonderful experience.

FIRST VISIT

We went with friends and very impressed, good food, excellent wine list especially all the Kolios ones.

Sushi was very good, I had Dragon Rolls Tasty indeed

I can imagine it being extremely noisy if all the tables were being fed at the same time.

All round very good experience

Probably not a place to visit weekly but for special occasions

Excellent food

We went with a group last week for a special evening, and were very surprised at just how good it was. We chose a mixed selection, starting with tempura which consisted of battered chicken goujon, prawn, and mixed vegetables. This was served with 4 different dipping sauces, wasabi and finely sliced pickled ginger, absolutely gorgeous! Main course was grilled duck breast, chicken breast, grilled vegetables, fried rice and sauces. Again the food was perfect. The chefs put on a very entertaining show and really made a good evening more special. Will go again and certainly recommend. Price wise we found it quite reasonable.

well worth a visit ... but maybe just for specials

First time here and very enjoyable all round experience. Between three adults we shared two starters (vegetable tempura, california sushi rolls), three teppanyaki (chicken, steak and duck) with rice, vegetables and noodles, then two desserts (ice-creams and choc cake). No complaints at all on any of the food perfectly fried onions & mushrooms, meats juicy n soft as we like it, but be warned if you are someone who avoids lots of butter or salt with food then you may need to consider this.

Chef 'ricky' kept it lively and other staff were quietly attentive for drinks and clearing up. Venue is very well fitted with quality furnishings. The food came to €23 a head seemed good value considering the 'live chef show' aspect but with an extra €11 per person taking care of 2 bottles of wine and a couple of soft drinks, drinks are expensive. period.

Having never been to Japan i have no idea how authentic this whole experience was but certainly enjoyed it all at face value, just due to the amount of €€€ required it will be a special occasion venue i think.
