only in tokyo jessie. but same deal.
given some of the kitchen antics shown on our TVs recently,it would be a great practice for all restaurants to adopt this style.

Im a regular in china town and its so suprising to a lot of folk that you actually get chinese food as it should be cooked well more or less.

Thai and japanese are good to.

I work in a very Asian dominated area and you can get food originating from just about any part of Asia. They're all very different with their own flavours and way of cooking. Very cheap and mostly healthy too.

And good thing about living in Australia Sydneylass is that you have all the fresh fish and asian vegetables to make it with.

Your right Harold we're so lucky in that respect. I couldn't believe the price of meat last time we were in England it's so expensive. No wonder the Ozzies are famous for their BBQ's it's so cheap and plentiful here.

At the risk of sounding pedantic Jessie but you said you visited Manchester Chinatown yet you dined Japanese. Perhaps it should be renamed Asia or Oriental Town if the cuisine of more than one nation is represented. Just a thought.

What about the latest fad 'sushi'?? I think you either love it or hate it?? Me, doesn't do anything for me - a bit of cold rice wrapped up in a spinach leaf. Give me prawns on the barbie any day.

Sushi is an acquired taste and what dips you dip the different bits into, I can take it or leave it.

Sounds like the Tepan Yaki. Was it on the first floor facing the car park in the centre of Chinatown?

The Best restaurant I've EVER been to!!!!!

I once went to a Korean restaurant where we were served the house delicacy.

I asked the waiter what it was as it was so delicious and was told it's the dog's b***ocks. I said I know, but what is it?

Ive been about 15 times,went once with b8omex.The same company own them in Birmingham and Leeds,the name Tapen Yaki is the name of the hot plate you sit round.I went to a place last week near Wolverhampton and you get American size portions but the best bit is its served on a shovel,it sounds funny but it was great.
