Chennai has a handful of expat-run Japanese restaurants which turn out an excellent Japanese fare, but Teppan was one of the first to specialize in Teppanyaki. Launched by the prolific restaurateur M Mahadevan, Teppan fits in three theatre-style Teppanyaki rooms. After you place your order, the Teppanyaki chef picks up a metal spatula to toss, swivel, slice, dice your preparation with flair.
Visited this place last week on a weekday for dinner. We were the only diners. Ordered two sushi platters and a set meal (seafood). The sushi was so-so. As for the set meal, the salad, soup and the prawn tempura were OK. But the main course, prepared by the chef on Tappanyaki grill, was simply awful. The veggies were not crisp and both the prawns and the fish were so salty, we had to leave it untouched. Will not repeat.
We know this restaurant since 2011 and enjoyed every single visit of it since then! We always take friends us and recommend it to others because it is absolutely worth having a good lunch or dinner there. Mostly we decide to have the meat menu with 4 courses: japanese salad, chicken skewers, miso soup and the great final with the veggies, the meat (chicken and beef) and rice being prepared in front of you. Top quality and great taste! Don‘t miss to try the sushi as a starter! The homemade mocktails make it a perfect dining. You better be hungry - it‘s plenty of food. Enjoy!
They prepared very good Maki Rolls, but cant say the same to Nigiri. need more expertise. Shrimp Tempura is good. Teppanyaki style cooking display by chef is good and food tasted good. They should add bean sprouts in the veggie grill. Overall a new experience.
Teppan Japanese Grill and Sushi Bar takes all its guests to a mini tour to Japan through their authentic Japanese Cuisine. The word 'Teppan' came from the metal(iron) griddle used in the 'Teppanyaki Style' of Japanese Cuisine. In this style of cooking, the chef plays with cutlery in the live & open kitchen & prepares pan-fried or grilled items for the guests as per their requests. This style of cooking became famous after World War II. The restaurant is located at Alwarpet, Central Chennai & on the first floor of the building. This fine dining restaurant offers a soothing ambience with melodious Japanese music!!! Starting with healthy salad Tori Satori Sarada, Soup - Miso, crispy Pop ebi crunch Tempura, Maguro tataki, Sashimi platter of Ika (Cuttle fish), Maguro (Tuna), Suzuki (Sea Bass), Shake (Salmon), Tako(Octopus), Nigiri of various types such as Ebi, Maguro, Shake, Hamachi, in Hoso Maki such as Karai maguro maki, Shake maki, Ura Ami - Californian Maki, Dragon Maki, Variety of Sashimi, Rice -Tamago yakimeshi, Noodles - Yaki soba, Agemono - Tori kara age & at the end various desserts are also there to finish your meal with a sweet note!! The restaurant is around 9 years old & has been serving scrumptious Japanese Delicacies till date. The uniqueness of the restaurant lies with the live show of Teppanyaki by the chef at the live counter where the guests can sit surrounding the iron griddle & experience live cooking. Teppan Japanese Grill and Sushi Bar has awarded with many rewards over the years for their hospitality & serving authentic Japanese meal to its customers.
I had high expectations of Teppan based on the reviews but the food was disappointing. In the vegetarian set menu all the dishes came out tasting the same - they were really salty so maybe adapted to local taste or something? Staff were good but at 1,500 for just one person (after tax and service were added) this place is really not worth the money.
A friend of mine was bemoaning the other day on the absence of a good sushi place in Chennai city and we agree whole heartedly. So it was such a pleasant surprise to hear of this wonderful little place that has finally given the city what it most desired. Japanese cuisine is a beautiful art of cooking by retaining the ingredient’s natural integrity and true flavour. The cuisine is subtle and delicate so it takes a bit of acquired taste to get used to it but once you have it, there is no turning back. Presiding on the TTK Road, Alwarpet, Chennai lies the answer to our prayers in the form of ‘Teppan’. The exteriors of Teppan closely resembles a standard home. Located in a bungalow like structure the restaurant has an added advantage of space which we must say is plenty. Ask to be seated on the teppanyaki table or to the regular table by the side. Simple yet charming, Teppan has so much to offer.
Delightful oriental lamps and china blue ming vases add authenticity to the scene. Teppan assures that you don’t forget which cuisine you can enjoy here even for one moment. The staff is prompt and attentive throughout the evening which completely transforms the dining experience. The food that comes to your table will be attractive and eye-pleasing. Assorted carvings of sweet meat are displayed beautifully on the edgy platters accompanied with dipping sauces so your fingers itch to pick up the chopsticks and dive in. As your first course opt to go with a tori satori sarada (chicken salad with wasabi dressing), ebi tempura (tempura batter fried prawns), niku tataki (seared tenderloin with ponzu sauce), gomoku soup, assorted grilled begetables, sashimi, tamago (Japanese omelette), dragon maki and nigiri.
As your main course you will be bombarded with numerous choices but keeping in mind the restaurant’s name ‘Teppan’ dabble in the teppanyaki range. Choose your base ingredient like, sea bass, rack of lamb, chicken breast, Japanese scallops, lobster, tuna and Australian sea bass with a nice sauce and watch them convert it into something sensational. Pair them with a bowl of fried rice or noodles for maximum pleasure. To spoil your sweet tooth they have various ice-creams on offer and ask for the dessert of the day. Teppan is bit on the pricier side but if you love Japanese fare then make it a point to visit soon.
