Tipping the teppanyaki chef

How much do you tip the guy? And do you give it to him after he cooks? Or do you include in your general tip after you've eaten?

I tip him separately and give another tip to the rest of the waitstaff after I've had my meal. Is that the norm?

  1. I've never heard of tipping the teppanyaki chef...

    1. I know some servers at a teppanyaki place. They are required tip-out a specific percentage to the chef. So, just lip with leave a generous tip with your server.
