There wasn't really any atmosphere but the food and the performance of the live cooking made up for it! The food was however rather overpriced for what you got.

This is a great restaurant and a great chef. The first time we tried his food at The Restaurant in The Andaman we knew we were in for a good evening! (Tempanyaki style tofu slightly caramelised - absolutely perfect!) We didnt rate the tepanyaki but many groups were enjoying the artistry and fun of the chefs. We opted for the... More

Firstly, I must commend the service of the waiting staff who were absolutely fantastic and a real credit to the restaurant and the hotel. Nevertheless, we expected better from the food. We decided on the Teppanyaki menu and unfortunately it was pretty tasteless. Yes the food was cooked well but it seemed to lack flavour and the actual cooking lacked... More

Beautifully prepared and served. The dishes were delicate in flavour and served in a traditional Japanese way - fabulous. A glass of warm Saki was a great way to end the meal

We have been here a few times before. The menu has been reduced but there is still enough here to have a good choice. I had the salmon this time which was very good.

This restaurant is delicious. They offer sushi, sashimi, but also Teppanyaki. They have 2 teppanyaki stations and the chefs are quick in cooking. Service is impeccable. The restaurant Manager, Mr. Normizan, recognized us after a year and half. He made us feel we were at home!

We visited this restaurant because it was in the hotel we were staying in. We arrived about 8pm to a completely empty restaurant - another couple joined us shortly after. The service was good, as would be expected for a resort of this calibre. What honestly surprised me was just how bad the food was. The prices ranged from RM30... More
