26 Reviews for Fujiyama Teppanyaki Japanese Restaurant
Food isn’t great quality either, definitely not very authentic.
The show is great, but otherwise the atmosphere is pretty poor. I guess ultimately I can think of much better ways to spend $50.

The chef was friendly, and entertaining!
But then it went downhill. One of us found a piece of glass in the fried rice! Shockingly bad! This was rectified with a free glass of wine and a free meal (as it should be – I would not be paying for a meal that has broken glass in it)
However, as we were leaving we saw the waiters filling wine bottles with cask wine – how disgusting. I don’t go out to a restaurant, order wine, and expect to receive wine from a cask! And I don’t think the wine makers would be very happy about this either. This is false advertising and completely wrong! I actually wish there was something more I could do about this!
I will not be going back under any circumstances! If I could give it zero stars I would….
The whole experience of Teppanyaki was really exciting and just a great way to have fun with friends. We ordered the Tokyo set, and the fish was tender and delicious, as well as the chicken. Really worth the try!
After reading some of these reviews, I must stress that this restaurant is not a ‘fancy’ restaurant, and it’s not suppose to! It’s a casual BBQ restaurant with a great twist. Definitely recommend to people who intend on going with large group of friends to catch up or even families with children! Very entertaining. Will definitely be coming back.

We went there with the whole family and all in all had a good time. The chefs were friendly and played the “usual” games with teppanyaki – throwing pieces of food into patrons mouths etc.
The food is cooked well, but not spectacular. Especially when one considers the price, I would definitely expect more than straightforward bbq. Even when we chose set menus for both of us (which are quite a bit cheaper), we still had to shell out $80. This is a bit disappointing since I can get the same food at a Chinese place for less than half the price. The show alone doesn’t justify this.
The restaurant was eerily quiet and not even half the tables were occupied. We had tried to book before and had been turned away because “all tables were full”. I’m a bit doubtful if this was the real reason or if the owner didn’t want to cook just for us.
Waiting staff and chefs are friendly, but the front of the house appears very distant and uninterested. Since this is the first and last contact, better manners would go a long way.
For the price of $36.90 we had salad and miso soups for entres, and then the chef cooked a combination of steak, fish, prawns, chicken, vegetables and also fried rice. I don’t understand how the reviews say this place is not value for money! Place them all out on a huge dish simultaneously and you have a bargain!
If you’re looking for a cheap meal for $10 i recommend elsewhere, whereas if you’re looking for a fun night out with the girls/family and willing to spend, then this place is definitely recommended.

The service was very slow and they were very inflexible with ordering options. We were told that to swap the chicken for beef would be an extra $8 dollars, though last time I checked chicken is comparable or even more expensive than beef. But what makes it worse is that straight after someone was allowed to do exactly as we wanted. We ordered two entrees, which while tasted alright, were very small and over priced for what they were. As for dinner, it was fun to watch the chef cook it, but as for the taste it was very plain and I could have cooked it better at my house. We were also duped into buying two small bowls of rice, at a cost of $11 , when we could have just gotten a set menu for $3 extra each, they made no attempt to explain the menu to us. The food was very expensive considering the portion size and quality of it.
Overall I rate this as quite poor, not somewhere to go if you want good food for a decent price.
On arrival were ignored for 15 minutes and then on ordering were told our voucher could not be used on the specials.
Felt a strong feeling of not being welcome –
Service – Unfriendly.
Corkage for 4 people was $16 dollars – Expensive.
Waiter – Not organised, starters were given to wrong people.
Restaurant has potential as teppanyaki is fun.. The older lady, guess the manager needs to work on her manners as she comes across as extremely rude.
Chef was fun & cooked some great tasting food.
The staff started cleaning up around us and took all our plates away because they wanted to close.
Management need to work on their manners and food is over priced.
Went here recently for a 21st dinner, was absolutely spectacular. When we sat (were still waiting for a couple) we ordered the mixed tempura plate to keep us going as it was quite busy. Perfect tempura, no faults there.
When the chef came out, we had all decided on the set menu, to get a taste of everything. The amount of food you get for the $30 set B is outstanding, they start you off with salad and miso while the chef gets the hotplate going, and then he will cook course by course as you eat what he has just finished making.
Food was all perfect, a bit of a show in front of you on the grill, lovely atmosphere and all reasonably priced.
Highly recommended, a booking of 6-8 is the ideal size to get your own bar to sit around.
This place is absolutely fun! and great entertainment!
The set menu has a little bit of everything which is great since I have never tried it before.
It is very interesting watching them cook in front of you!
This place is great for socialising and having fun especially with big groups!
I found out that the owner is still the same since it was opened 20 years ago which is awesome.
The chefs are friendly and nice and the waitresses were very helpful taking empty dishes and plates!
Overall this place is awesome for celebrating something or just going out for fun!
Good experience, great entertainment from the chef. Throwing bowls of rice and eggs. Fun atmosphere. Lots of laughs.
However, the meals are tiny. It’s VERY expensive for what you get. The food is quite average. Luckily it’s BYO to make up for price of food… and only BYO wine, not those large bottles of beer that almost look like a bottle of wine :P.
Good experience entertainment wise, but food was not worth it. Great place to take someone who hasn’t been there before, but not the kind of place you would visit more than once.
I have to give credit to the fun, however . . .
With the exception of the miso soup and the umeshu (Japanese plum wine) the rest was all Chinese food.
Service was OK.
The place itself needed a very nice clean up. There is no attention to details in that restaurant as an authentic Japanese restaurant would have.
No, I will not come back.
Wonderful food, great entertainment as it is cooked, great atmosphere with friends but not a place to dine alone or take wriggling children. I’d recommend no one under 10.
