Chinese and East Asian
Not far from the Opera House, Royal Exchange Theatre and shops lies Teppanyaki Chinatown. To dine at this restaurant is not just to consume the tantalising Japanese cuisine on offer, but also to witness authentic teppanyaki cooking within a friendly and relaxed atmopshere. Sizzling meat, fish and fresh vegetables cooked in Tokyo sauce are prepared in front of you on the blazing hotplate (teppan) by passionate chefs who are keen to show diners how this style of cuisine should be done.
The fun starts as you begin your meal with appetisers such as classic miso soup, chicken yakitori and vegetable gyoza. Cold options include tuna nigiri, unagi and avocado roll, and sashimi. Feast your eyes as chefs send flickering flames up into the air as they toss duck, heat up prawns or perhaps whip up the house special ozayuki – a dish consisting of rolled beef stuffed with mushrooms, spring onion and garlic. Vegetarians can get in on the action and opt for the tofu steak and aubergine teppanyaki. Teppanyaki Chinatown is an experience like no other. Expect authentic Japanese teppanyaki cooking that focuses on the quality of each dish, without the gimmick. Don’t forget to try a cup of sake for added authenticity or accompany your dishes with a glass of fine wine from the extensive list.
