It was a real good surprise and delicious moment. The chef is really funny open minded and talented. You have to ask teppanyaki absolutely!

Myself and 7 of my girl friends went to Chai Yo on a Wednesday night for some food. To say we had an absolute laugh would be an understatement. Our server Joey was very funny and knew how to work a crowd, he had each of us interacting with him, flipping food for him, he also made it his business... More

Thought I had booked for a regular set meal in the restaurant, however when we arrived we were seated at the teppanyaki station. Only €10 per person more (shrewd move by the staff).Still, it was my birthday so we went with it. The food was very nice and good flavours. Watching it being cooked was a fun experience and the...

This has got to be one of my favourite restaurants in the city and one of the best for large groups. It has an upstairs teppenyaki area and a normal restaurant service downstairs - I can't comment on the restaurant downstairs as I have never eaten there but I can say the teppenyaki upstairs is excellent. The chefs are very... More

Really love this place. You can have a regular table like we got or you can get a table where the chef comes out and cooks in front of you which looks really cool. Food is really tasty and staff are very friendly and kind. They surprise the tables with some music at the end of your meal. Unique idea... More

We had a party of 10 in for a birthday party and we got the Teppanyaki experience, the food was fantastic and the entertainment and they provided was great fun. The food itself was lovely and they had a tasty selection of meat and fish.

I have now been here once or twice with friends and family and always have a great time. The food is a great mix of cultures and fusions and something for everyone. Their choice in music is truly fantastic!!

Went there with some friends. The food is good and it comes in large portions. The staff is nice and they provide a good atmosphere. There is a little band that goes from table to table and sings songs according to the event you are celebrating (birthday, xmas party...)

Chai yo is split into two sections, upstairs we have three teppanyaki (hibachi) tables where the chef entertains and cooks in front of you. Down stairs we have the more conventional restaurant sitting. We serve a variety of asian cuisines such as teppanyaki, sushi, thai curries and chinese food. We love to cater for large groups at the teppanyaki tables where we can accomodate up to 40 ppl on the three tables. Dont forget every night we have singers and a guitarist to help you celebrate that perfect night.
