Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Always great food, and good service. Can be cold under air con, that staff have on to suit them not you. Object to 2.5% payWave fee, but otherwise great spot

Seated outside we really struggled with getting service. Food great but let down by the need to go back inside to get device.

Sat on the hot plate for our wedding anniversary, ordered food and a drink. It took over an hour to get a salad, when the chef finally arrived, the interaction was none existent. She didn't talk to anyone, ask how the food was, she was...just wanting to be gone asap. We were there 2 hours by the time we finished eating as she rushed to make up time. After the first drink we were not offered to order any others. We sat for at least 20mins with a dirty plate, no mention of our desert included until we decided to stand up and leave as it had taken so long. We had to decline and go. When mentioned to the staff about the disappointment, they said sorry and thanks. Just overall disappointed to go out for a treat,spend that much money, for an experience and service which we did not get.More

If you don't mind 'Japanese' food that's closer to Hokitika than Hokkaido, with no trace of Japanese finesse, then Amaterrace is passable, just. If you're looking for authenticity, don't come here. The food is edible....and over-priced. The wait staff are not overly attentive, passing by...often enough, but not stopping to pick up dirty plates on their way past. The Teppan Chef was competent, from what I could see, but did not possess much in the way of flair. Fine for a boozy night out. Good luck finding the place. No street level signage from the sidewalk and most businesses don't have street numbers on their doors. If you walk down the middle of Oxford St and keep looking up, you might have better luck.More

More like a 3.5 rating. Nothing outstanding, but nothing major to complain about either. The ambience is certainly catered more towards adults rather than kids/families (very dimly lit). The food was standard for a Teppanyaki experience, although we have had better. Service was ok. Price...wise, definitely on the steep end. Probably consider an alternative restaurant if you’re intending on dining here during dinner with young family members.More

We have dined here several times before but felt rushed with food and staff generally. They were more interested in making sure we were gone well inside our 2 hr booking rather than ensuring it was a special night for us. Overall a bit disappointing.

Authentic Japanese food and good service. We sat at a table rather than around the Tepan which was probably a good thing as it was a really hot day. Very wide range of options with at least 4 to 6 set meals all at reasonable...prices. Al la crate offerings very good, especially the tempura prawns which were huge, juicy and fresh tasting. Seafood salad delicious and generous portion. Great range of wines and beers. Service excellent.More

Went here as a family for a birthday. We had a 1 & 2 year old also. It was the first Teppanyaki experience for most of the group and they really enjoyed it. Although it is quite expensive starting at around $50 per person and...$29 for the kids menu, it’s something you would probably only do for a special occasion. The food was very tasty and excellent quality, and you definitely didn’t leave feeling hungry. The only negative was that it was quite hard to find. It is upstairs, but finding out how to get up there was quite tricky. It needs to be clearly marked from the main walkway.More

Came here for lunch and just adored the sushi lunch set.   The décor of the restaurant was both modern and traditional. It needs a bit of TLC though which surprised me since it is a fairly new restaurant. There were quite big stains and...marks on the table and several rips in my seat.   The service was mediocre. The greeting wasn’t very enthusiastic and or welcoming. I was the only one present in the restaurant and I had to wave down people to assist me. There were four people working the floor and no one came over to see if I was okay, if I was enjoying my meal or if I wanted something else.   The menu offered a nice range of lunch options.   I chose the Salmon and Avocado Rolls which was served with Miso Soup. The rolls were amazing. They were fresh, delicious, nicely presented and generous in portion. However the miso soup was cold, straight from the fridge. I had to wave down someone to question it. There wasn’t an apology but a new one was brought out minutes later that was so hot I had to wait 10mins to drink it.   The sushi was great but the service wasn’t so I am not that eager to return promptly.More

From the moment we entered the door, the smell was enticing and the atmosphere warm and inviting. Good service overall, a decent wine list, and the food could not be faulted. Most tender steak I've had in years.
