We go once a year to the Riccarton Branch and have always enjoyed it. This time was no exception. We booked for 6.00pm on a Sunday and for 20 minutes we were the only guests. When we left 1.5 hours later the place was really buzzing with the teppan benches half full, and at the tables one large group and... More

Have been here a number of times, but this time for lunch was well worth the visit. Really good value and tasty Japanese fare. Restaurant can get a little noisy, but food and service is always on point. Didn't have any drinks (working!) but a tasty couple of meals for only $28!

Dined here for a family event. Food was fresh and well cooked. We had chicken, seafood selection and the meat selection cooked on the Tepan. We enjoyed all dishes and, unlike last time we dined here, service was not rushed. Would visit again.

Hadn't been to Tony's restaurant for many years as we live out of town. It was a lovely surprise to find Tony still there and doing what he and his team do so well. The food is exceptional, the service friendly and welcoming. This was a lovely dining experience and we took along our 80 year old mum who had... More

As can be seen in the photo of the flame , a good thumbs up for this restaurant. Food was good , service was friendly, and chefs were entertaining. Well worth the effort to get along here for a good feed with friends.

At the time of booking we were not advised that a set menu was to be had on Valentines day so on arrival we were very surprised, but by this time was too late to go anywhere else, we viewed the $140 for two menu which was very limited and offered no choice. While the food was delicious we were... More
