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.

This was our second time here, and it was even better than the first. I had the Teppenyaki buffet which was all I could eat including rice and miso, a great price for as much beautiful food as you can eat ... and I ate...too much. The seafood is so light, the chicken snd steak are cooked to perfection, the miso and vegetables are also sooo good. My daughter, a vegetarian, was super happy with tofu, teppen vegetables, edamame beans and miso too. The oils and sauces are all so good and we really appreciated this restaurant being peanut free. The experience of watching the chefs cook in front of you, dining in a circle with others and food arriving continuously means its a fun experience and there's no awkward silences at all. Really recommend as a fulfilling night out.More

Amazingly fresh and beautifully cooked food. The freshest fish and most tender beef. We feasted at the teppanyaki bar last night and would highly recommend Tony’s. The best beef tataki too - simply delicious

Been here a number of times but last night came with a Grab One Voucher for a Surf and Turf Feast. WOW! Starter was dumplings, then chicken (Karachi-like) which was so good. The next course, sashimi - was as good as Kinji, which is the...ultimate compliment, then veges cooked on the hibachi came with lobster and lobster infused miso (my highlights) and hibachi cooked wagyu beef (my wife favourite) and to finish a surprisingly good tiramisu with fresh fruit We rolled home very full but very happy. At $158 for 2 I thought it was great value and couldn't recommend it more highly. Oh, and great services as always! Treat yourself - you'll love it!More

We have eaten @Tony’s many times before….so probably a little bias, but the food and service is OUTSTANDING!! ……but the massive winner is the Lava Rolls. If you like seafood and sushi…..this will blow you mind! I have eaten all over the world and would...have to say I’ve never had a starter to a meal that even remotely compares to this….just try it! It’s also a great event sitting at the Teppanyaki Grill and watching the talented Chefs put on a show of culinary excellence. Take a date….you will look like a star! 😎More

Extremely enjoyable meal. Well presented. We had the sushi, deep fried tofu, pork dumplings, and sushmi. The dumplings were a highlight for me with the additional sauces provided. We each tried a banana dessert and the pancake wrapped bananas was the best one.

Annoyed after I had bought a grab-one voucher for my partner and I to enjoy a 10 course degustation tepan-yaki meal. Despite buying the voucher a week prior, calling 2 days prior and arriving on time; they refused to give us what we had ordered...(a tepanyaki meal); because they had illegally sold too many vouchers. Getting a refund was so awkward and difficult that another couple left (attempting to get their money back through grab-one). While we got a refund, it was an awful experience to go through when I had thoughtfully tried to arrange a nice meal/night for your date on valentine's. Avoid this placeMore

The food and service was extremely good and I enjoyed my meal very much. The choice of wines and beers is limited and the offered beverages are a little mundane.

My wife and I had dumplings and chicken entrees and a seafood combo and beef Teppanyaki as mains. They were all excellent- extremely tasty, with great service. The restaurant was fairly busy on a Friday lunchtime but we will be back.
