What an amazing experience. We dined inside and watched the chef cook entertain us. We shared a Superior banquet for 2... so flavoursome and tender. YUM! Authentic staff were friendly and attentive. Well priced.
What a great night, food was outstanding and service was great, it is the first time we had visited this restaurant and we will definitely be back
We walked in and were sat right on front of the grill. Staff were good and the chef especially was awesome and so skilled. Great night.
We had a great dinner here recently. The chef went out of his way to ensure the kids had an experience they’d never forget. Food was lovely and value outstanding!
I brought my family of 7 to Saiko for farewell lunch before flying back to London. We were lucky to book the teppanyaki bar and were thoroughly entertained by the teppanyaki chef who cooked our food. Most of us ordered the lunch banquet and all were delicious, mouthwatering. Staff were attentive and we all thought the meal were value for money. Highly recommend and hope to come back very soon!
