Best place to go for teppanyaki in Toronto?

Price range at around 30-40 per?

  1. Akasaka in Richmond Hill is the best I've been to for teppanyaki:

    Worst place to go is Memories of Japan (Don Mills north of Eglinton).

    1. Admittedly, I have only been to three or four teppanyaki restos in the gta, but that's because whenever I'm in the mood for it, I go to Benni-hanna's in the royal York. It's a chain, I know, but they have had a consistent, solid product going on 20 years now. They also have good sushi.

      1. I may not have a car, so anywhere downtown or northyork/scarborough?

        I heard good things about yamato.

          Benni-Hanna's is in the Royal York, across the street from Union station.

            Depending on if you are planning to have lunch or dinner Benihana's may not fit into the OP's price range.

                Well not really....$36 for an assortment of vegetables, kind of puts Benihana out of the 30 to 40 pp range

                  I'm not certain - was that with or without tax? Did the OP specify? Did he include tip in that price range? Drinks? Wine? Is $40 the absolute max the OP will spend including all in? Oh rrrrrrrrrright. He didn't say. He just gave us an *approximate* range.

                  "Priced at *around* 30-40 per"

        2. If you're downtown, I recommend Yamato in Yorkville, particularly at lunch. The prices are super reasonable, generally $8-$12 for a meal that includes an onion soup, grilled vegetables, your protein of choice (beef, chicken, shrimp, scallops, pork or salmon) and steamed rice.

          At dinner, the tepannyaki dinner also includes a green salad but prices more than double. For example: the Tori Teppanyaki (Chicken) is $9 at lunch, but $22 at dinner. I enjoy the two dipping sauces, one's mustard-based, the other ginger.)

          1. Ten Ichi In Scarborough has reasonable Teppanyaki. Not High end but decent and its AYCE so a good value IMO.
