Cuisine: Barbeque, Japanese, Teppanyaki
Price Point: Mains from $20 - $30

One of Wellington’s hottest dining experiences, Ichiban Teppanyaki is where restaurant theatre and delicious Japanese flavours collide.

This local’s favourite specialises in teppanyaki, essentially barbecuing on a hot plate, a style of cooking which was invented in Osaka 250 years ago and tastes as good today as it did back then.

Ideal for birthday parties and those special occasions, you can expect an experienced chef to cook your meal at your table, sending the flames sky high before sizzling top quality ingredients such as wagyu beef and market-fresh seafood right before your eyes.

The menu also features other Japanese favourites such as sashimi and yaki udon, as well as crispy vegetarian tempura and octopus pancakes, all the perfect match for an ice cold beer.

Why go out for a standard meal when you can enjoy a cultural experience for the same price? See what all the fuss is about - book now!

A fantastic dinner. Kids first time there and they put on a great show as well as the food being awesome. Quick, friendly service with a smile. Will definitely be back soon.

Great family fun night. A different style of eating, watching your food getting cooked while flames fly high and eggs are thrown, don’t drop the eggs! (Or the bowls of rice for that matter). Good clean healthy fast food. Thanks for a fun evening.

A must do experience if you have never tried this place before! Food is divine and the cooking before your eyes as well as catching items of food is very entertaining. The only reason I haven't rated 'service' as a 5 is due to the dishes not being cleared away after our meal and our drinks arrived after we had already begun eating - so not really a big deal but didn't feel I could honestly rate a 5 because of this. Thanks so much for a great girls evening out.

Wow!! What a restaurant! Firstly they were quick smart bringing out our drinks and then all of a sudden our Entreés were in front of us!! Such quick service! The chef cooked the mains in front of us which was a new experience for me and I loved it! Would definitely recommend this place and will certainly be returning :)

It was very entertaining and fascinating to have our own chef cooking at our table. We loved the tenderness of the Terriyaki Steak, and the accompanied sauces. Fortunately the fish had a tasty, zingy sauce - as it was quite bland cooked on its own. There was ample food, as we ordered a set menu for two and didn't get to order dessert, as we were too full.
