Yamagen offers a diverse menu of Japanese staples including meat dishes, rice, salads, soup and desserts.

Yamagen is unexpectedly good. We thought the food would not taste much in japanese style, but it came out quite all right.

In my opinion, the only thing I'm not into is Tonkatsu. They should not put the sauce on and cut it into too small pieces. Even though it was easy to eat, It didn't feel like Tonkatsu

Went to Yamagen, my first Teppanyaki experience, and they didn't disappoint. We were lucky enough to book when it wasn't busy.
Food was delicious and cooked just right. Had chicken and seafood set menu. The servers were friendly and polite. Very nice experience overall.

Have been here a few times and like to go back. The food is excellent and fun to watch being prepared. The service is normally great too, but last night was a bit off. The waitress served my friend well but not me. She didn't fill my drinks or offer me things she had offered to my friend. It's because service was amazing other times we he been. If still recommend but not 5/5
