Restaurant Review: Teppankai

Location: 34 Bray Street, South Yarra
Phone: 03 9827 8822
Cuisine: Japanese, Teppanyaki , Tapas
Overall Impression: 6.5/10
Located in South Yarra, Teppankai is a lovely restaurant which features contemporary Japanese cuisine.
The cuisine integrates Western ingredients and techniques with traditional Japanese cooking such as tempura, sushi and sashimi. A selection of sakes compliment the sophisticated menu.
The restaurant's symmetrical design features geometric booths with dividers. Magically lit, the space glows in soft light.
Teppankai leverages on the social izakaya-style side of Japanese eating and drinking, offering a laid back environment for catching up with friends and family with a focus on quality food designed to share in stylish but comfortable surroundings.
Teppankai specialises in creative sushi rolls such as “Kai kani maki” which is crab meat rolled with torched mayo and topped with tobiko.
Alongside creative sushi, Teppankai’s menu features a number of Japanese classics such as gyoza, Ebi Tempura and various meats cooked teppanyaki-style.
The teppanyaki area brings diners closer to the action, inviting guests to watch their selected dishes being prepared using high quality ingredients.
Teppankai is a stylish Japanese restaurant. Its authentic izakaya-style menu has been designed to encourage diners to select a variety of dishes in an almost random fashion to be shared amongst the table so that a combination of tastes and flavours can be enjoyed.
