The Rocks Teppanyaki Overview

Tucked in the heart of The Rocks you'll find the shining Kobe Jones venture, The Rocks Teppanyaki. Situated in a heritage listed building built in the 1880s, The Rocks Teppanyaki retains its original, historic shell with an interior revamped with a classically stylish layout. Salmon pink walls and fine furnishings grace each of the five intimate dining rooms, all of which are fitted with a gleaming teppan grill. Enjoy a pre-dinner drink at the cocktail bar and lounge before taking a seat to dine. Expect to spot set menu options like the Barra and Wagyu with dishes of carpaccio Hokkaido scallop with wasabi dressing, spicy seafood salad, Barramundi with motoyaki sauce and Darling Downs Wagyu AA5+ with asparagus, mushroom and spinach, finished with crepe suvette and French vanilla gelato.

A few words from The Rocks Teppanyaki

Built in the 1880s, this heritage listed building was formerly one of the oldest open air butchers in Sydney. While no structural changes have been made since 1901, this butchery turned residence now houses The Rocks Teppanyaki. Opened in 1992, The Rocks Teppanyaki delivers a sophisticated, elegant and indulgent dining experience. With five private teppanyaki rooms, each with its own chef and service staff, our dining offer is truly unique in Sydney while the cocktail bar is perfect for before and after dinner drinks or a cocktail party for that special corporate event.

~What is Teppanyaki?~

Teppanyaki is a traditional Japanese cuisine. The word teppanyaki is derived from the word teppan which translates to iron plate and yaki which means grilled. If you've ever shied away from teppanyaki for fear of getting egg on your face, The Rocks Teppanyaki is the place for you. Here we cook authentic Japanese teppanyaki. It is not a dining experience that should be rushed and you are urged to engage your chef to make sure your special preferences are included. Part of the allure is to watch the chef's knife and cooking skills while your meal is being prepared. It is a personal dining experience, one in which you are consulted and can be involved.

~Ordering Teppanyaki~
