Manchester Culinary – Sapporo Teppanyaki

On my first visit to Teppanyaki the experience was enough to make me want to return for more. Due to positive reviews and recommendations from friends, I had high expectations. These were met and then some! But what actually makes Sapporo Teppanyaki one of the best Japanese restaurants in Manchester?

Sapporo Teppanyaki not only has great quality food, but also provides an experience like no other, with the food being cooked right in front of your eyes. The experience is made even more special down to the chef’s passion for their culinary art form. After our drinks had arrived (and I spilled my first one, oops!) the chef made his way over to our table.

As you sit there the food will be prepared and placed on your plate in stages for you to eat at your own leisure. All the food was incredible and watching it being prepared right in front of you was amazing.


The entertainment factor from the chefs is possibly one of the biggest draws of the restaurant. For those that have never been before, the chefs go around the table and throw potato slices that you have to try and catch in your mouth. I don’t mean to brag but I managed it the first time!


The chefs will also create a large fire on their grill so large you are advised to stand back. Our chef even started to juggle eggs at one point. The amount of skill and passion these chefs have is something to be in awe of, and it’s the only place I know of where you can watch your meal being made in front of you.


For my dish of choice I decided on the steak that was prepared beautifully, it has to be one of the best steaks I have ever eaten. To accompany my meal I ordered a refreshing Strongbow that at times can be hard to come by in some restaurants, so it was nice to see it here.


They also have a variety of other beverages from cocktails, Japanese whisky and even Saké. I have never tried Saké but I am very curious to do so on my return.


Given the quality of entertainment I thought it was quite good value. Our group paid £30 a head but for a memorable experience with friends and loved ones I can’t complain. Do you want to watch the show and eat your food at the end? Or would you like to eat it as it’s prepared? If you decide you want to save money there is even a less expensive set menu for you to try featuring the same level of service.
