Hi everyone. Just wanting to let you know that currently this restaurant is closed for renovations. My friends and I were keen to try their teppenyaki but when the bus pulled up there was a sign advising of the temporary closure 👍🏻

Sensational service - absolutely brilliant! But the prices were astronomical for the quality and amount of food. Food wasn't bad - but wasn't worth the price charged. The gyoza we had was fried in old oil so tasted a bit manky. The fish was nice enough but nothing to write home about - and the serving size was small. Again... More

We went to Shiki for dinner after hearing the food was very good and were not disappointed. We got a bus out there and back as it’s outside of Port Villa CBD! But well worth the trip. Cost 150vt ($2 aus) each, each way. We ordered one of the Teppanyaki combos which was beautiful and cooked spot on. The chef... More

Had a very entertaining Teppanyaki night here. The food was amazing, every course was so tasty and cooked to perfection right in front of us by our own chef. Don't miss the crazy bathroom!!!

We went with a groups of friends and none of us could fault the meals at all, the steak and fish were fresh, tender and very juicy. The chef was a bit "scripted" with his Teppanyaki performance but in saying that he was also very good, maybe he could have relaxed a little.
