“Pleasant restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 November 2013 via mobile

My fiancée and I dined here recently whilst staying at the Anadman Hotel.

The service as with everything at the hotel was excellent! Very friendly staff who were helpful and welcoming.

The food was delicious and you have the option to sit inside or outside with a la carte or have the teppanyaki grill which is what we did.

The menu is set and comes with a mixed and dressed salad, egg fried rice, vegetables, miso soup and a selection of ice cream plus the dish of choice, we had king prawn and wagyu beef which was cooked in front of you by the chef in a little show that was interesting to watch!

We were sat with two other couples which was nice to meet people and chat. The bill was just shy of £100 including one beer and one large bottle of evian so not a cheap option but compared to what this would cost in London we felt is was reasonable.

The other options were seafood, sirloin steak etc etc

I would recommend this for the food ambience but I think the datai complex has better restaurants for atmosphere and setting!

“Impressive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2013

Despite the menu price probably giving a shock, the restaurant serves a very impressive and authentic Japanese epicurean experience. I would also like to add that the portions were generous, and you may over order if you're not careful. I would definitely be eating again.

“A wide selection of great Japanese dishes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2013

We used this restaurant as an introduction to a wider selection of Japanese food, having been limited to sushi and sashimi in the past. It offers a really diverse menu of excellent food. Well worth a visit.
