Should have heeded the advice of other reviewers. We’ve been fortunate enough to have had Teppan-Yaki in Japan as well as a number of places in NZ and unfortunately this place doesn’t compare to any of these. We don’t like to leave negative feedback, but...hopefully they can learn from it. The chef was very friendly (as were the staff) but he was heavy handed with the salt. This combined with soy sauce made the dishes very salty, one dish almost uneatable. The portion sizes were extremely small compared with other restaurants we’ve been to, the whole meal was just lacking some of the traditional Japanese flavors. Maybe we were there on an “off night”, but first impressions are lasting.More

How pleasant it is to come into a restaurant to sit across from the chef and have fresh tasty food prepared In front of you. The set meals are large enough for an hungry person. Would highly recommend a visit

We last visited Momos about 18 months ago and enjoyed it very much, so when my brother -in-law suggested we return, we were more than happy. We had the Momo set, and found it to be excellent. Going to a Tepan-Yaki restaurant is always an...interesting experience, and we certainly enjoyed it.More

Over the last year we have been eating at Momo for weekend lunches . we are always warmly welcomed. Their $16 lunch special is awesome and a real treat to be cooked in front of us, Teppan-Yaki style. We thought we would take the family...out for Christmas Lunch this year. Everyone really enjoyed it!! Plenty of tasty food. Great attentive service from Shelley and Michelle, and chef Tony has the timing of cooking/preparing the food down to a 'fine art'. A treat to watch. Thanks, and looking forward to returning in 2020.More

Recently in the last year they have become our new regular hot spot for dinner for my friends and I. They always welcome you with a warm embrace just like you're a part of their family. They're food is is cooked by their fabulous chef...Tony which is also fast entertaining and tastes exceptional meanwhile their other staff Shelley and Michelle control the floor constantly checking on you and are always there for any needs/wants you might have (also always topping up my water and sake) which I think is great!) But after having Christmas Dinner tonight... They really raised the bar for food and customer service expectations! From a friendly demeanour and humbling attitude, they were absolutely on fire tonight! I will absolutely be returning to their resturaunt in the new year and throughout 2020!More

I was travelling alone and wanted to treat myself to a good meal. After some research and found that place with high reviews. My disappointments were: 1. The chef did not perform as a teppanyaki chef usually would. It was my first time to see...a chef just dish out straight into a plate and serve. 2. The food was basically cooked in soy sauce. I was disappointed as the fresh NZ produce was buried in the soy sauce taste. They emphasised so much about the yum-yum sauce that I thought it was made of mayonnaise and heaps of sugar. I had to scrape it off my prawns to avoid it spoiling the taste. I must say that they had super friendly staff. The could be a compensate for the so-so food.More
