Delicious and fun. Jason the chef was experienced and skilled. Beef was succulent and cooked to perfection. Love the atmosphere and the food is consistently good. We had the teppanyaki and it certainly didn't disappoint. Will be going back soon.

We didn't arrange a teppanyaki as we didn't read special condition, but they did teppanyaki without any comments.
Food was great. Everything was cooked as we liked. Especially meat. We ordered rare and we had rare meat. Usually even we order rare it comes out medium to well-done at other teppanyaki.
We had a great time. Thank you very much.

We had a pleasant dinner. The staff was nice and friendly, the food was ok. We had sashimi and its texture was not so delicate, it could be better. Then we had seafood teppanyaki which was absolutely excellent. Overall we enjoined our experience at Yamagen

Excellent food. Great range of dishes with the set menu's. The kids loved the great array of food in their bento boxes. Good service and the kids loved watching the flames at the teppanyaki table.
