“Tasty and fun experience”
Reviewed 16 April 2013

Recently went here after a recommendation from one of the waiters at Cloud 23. First visit to this type of restaurant and we weren’t disappointed. There were 4 of us and we shared a table with another couple. The menu is extensive and watching everything being cooked at your table is fascinating. An excellent venue for a celebration meal but also great if there are only a few of you. Service was outstanding, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will be going back sometime soon.

“Great show, and staff, but sadly average food.”
Reviewed 15 April 2013

We went for my son's 9th birthday as a family of 4. We chose a Saturday as we hoped it would be full with a great atmosphere and we weren't disappointed. The staff were wonderful, very attentive and the show from the chefs can't be beaten, so for a loud special occasion it was great. They even brought my son out a scoop of ice cream with a candle in and sang happy birthday...... We were just a little disappointed in the food. It was rather bland, and we had a wide spectrum of choice, from spider rolls, salmon teriyaki,chilli prawns, edamame beans, seafood tempura. I'm saddened to say that I've eaten better at yo sushi, and with a £140 bill I thought it was rather steep for the quality.
Groupon has recently had an offer on for here, so maybe that was why it was so full.....I just think its a shame when a restaurant emails you to ask you to leave a review on trip-advisor. Personally I prefer to do this when I've such strong feelings for a place or destination that I like to share my views without being pushed.
Great for a group celebration, but eaten better elsewhere.

SapporoTepp, Manager at Sapporo Teppanyaki - Manchester, responded to this review, 17 April 2013
Thank you for your feedback and positive comments regarding our great atmosphere, attentive customer service, entertaining chef show and wide selection of food. We are very proud of everything we have to offer at Sapporo and the majority of our feedback is hugely complimentary in terms of our food, service and hospitality. We are very sorry that you felt the food was bland and expensive. We pride ourselves on sourcing only the highest quality ingredients which match our exacting standards, and truly believe that we have a quality offering in comparison to other restaurants in the area. The Manchester restaurant has never had an offer with Groupon and the restaurant is hugely popular with all our guests, especially at the weekends. Lastly, may we apologise if you felt that our request to leave a review on Trip Advisor was pushy. This is certainly not our intent and there is no obligation whatsoever. It is merely a gentle reminder that should anyone wish to submit a review, then it would be greatly appreciated.

“Romantic quiet dinner? Go somewhere else!”
Reviewed 13 April 2013

My partner and I would have enjoyed more the (quite overpriced) food if the restaurant hadn't been an absolute razzmatazz. Suitable for stag parties, birthdays, avoid for quiet dinners or special occasions!

Sapporo Teppanyaki offer an extremely unique dining experience and the huge majority of our feedback is positive regarding our food, service and hospitality. We are proud to have a wide customer base, ranging from families to corporates, who visit us time and time again to celebrate their special occasions - this in itself is testament to our exciting offering in the city. With regards to your comment ‘romantic quiet dinners’, you would be surprised to hear that we are extremely busy at Valentine’s! The relaxed, informal, fun element of our dining experience makes us a very popular choice for those that are wanting to break from the norm.

“Entertaining and Delicious, a fantastic experience”
Reviewed 12 April 2013 via mobile

Booked this ahead of my trip to Manchester. So glad I did, right from the beginning there was a great atmosphere and friendly service. The chef show was incredible and the theatre involved in the cooking of your meals is definitely a highlight and something you have to experience. The chefs were friendly and involved everyone in the show. As for the food itself it was delicious, clearly fresh and plenty of it!
