Description: Fujiyama Teppanyaki Restaurant is the first and original teppanyaki restaurant established in Newcastle Upon Tyne. It first opened it's doors to the public in 1997. ​ It is the perfect venue for entertaining clients you need to impress or to celebrate special occasions such as a birthday or a hen/stag night. ​ All customers have their own highly trained personal chef for the duration of the meal. Once you are taken to your table, the raw ingredients of your meal will shortly arrive and the chef will prepare and cook your meal on the hotplate surface, right in front of you. The food is delivered to you sizzling fresh. ​ Our menu is extensive, accommodating both carnivores and herbivores. Many customers opt for one of our set banquets which are perfectly compiled to leave a pleasant feeling of satisfaction, not too much and not too little. Alternatively you may wish to customise and create you own meal by selecting starters from the appetisers menu and main courses from the ala carte menu, and some may even brave it to our sushi page.

We decided to visit Fujiyama for my partners birthday celebrations after being a fan of HanaHana (Japenese restaurant on same street) until we discovered two hairs in my food and felt the way they handled the matter was very unprofessional.
After visiting Fujiyama i can honestly say I would never visit HanaHana again! The food in Fujiyama was amazing and our chef was very friendly and funny making the overall experience of a very high standard. Prices are very reasonable unlike many other Japenese restaurants I have visited and staff can't do enough for you.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting to try real Japenese cuisine at the same time as experiencing a great atmosphere.

A really enjoyable dinner if you go in a group and order one of those full course set meals. Birthdays are a must. Look for the Chinese chef I dont know his name, but he is good at what he do.

Group of four , me and my wife with 2 children decided to try Japanese food for the first time. We were all apprehensive as we didn't know what to expect. We were not disappointed. Following starters of Sushi and Prawns which were very nice, the boys really enjoyed to the maximum
we had a mixture of Ducks and Sea food with egg rice. This is when the entertainment starts as you watch your food being cooked in front of you and the chef starts juggling eggs and then getting each of us up to try and catch one in a chefs hat. Food was excellent although be prepared for a sizeable bill, cheap it is not. All in all a great night out, will definitely be going back.

Visited for the first time with my other half and after reading some earlier reviews we were slightly wary of what to expect, however it was and excellent surprise. We both ordered the Royale set menu and a few extra appetisers which was more than enough.
The chef arrived after our starters to begin the main course on the hot plate and was very friendly introducing himself and shaking hands - something that doesn't usually happen at other Japanese restaurants we have visited. Throughout the meal he continued to talk us through the food and also providing entertainment catching an egg in his chefs hat, juggling and so on, with the offer for us to attempt these tricks ourselves which was a great laugh!
The food was lovely and fresh and cooked to your taste, we will defiantly be back!
