I usually dont write a review if I cant write a smashing one, however in the instance of Shiki I feel it only fair to warn fellow restaurant-goers of the overall average-ness of this place, before they sign up for a $300 price tag.
We went there with very high hopes knowing that the seafood menus started at $120 per head for 6 course teppanyaki. The ambience of the place was good, but not silver-service nice. Being seated next to a heating grill with a shrill high pitched sound the entire night didnt help either.
The meals were true 'clean eating', however for a $240 price tag, I would expect flavour explosions rather than a bug tail with fresh lemon squeezed on it, and nothing else. Saki started at $20 per service (for very low mls) was over the top, however the one we chose was lovely.
I would have expected a far greater experience for the money. $300 doesnt come easy anymore, and forking that out for an average meal, with no entertainment (I asked for my food to be flicked on my plate and was told 'we are more reputable than that), and only a glass of wine and Saki - no thank you. Never again.
