If we had to pick the most theatrical or dramatic style of cooking, then teppanyaki would be our top choice. “Teppan” stands for “iron plate” and “yaki” means “grilled,” so it stands to reason that the chef uses a heated iron plate to grill dishes in front of customers. 

The whole experience is a performance, and the chefs use specialised tools to flip ingredients and cut with the highest level of precision. Some teppanyaki chefs also come up with the wackiest tricks like juggling their tools, tossing ingredients in the air, or even building a fire on top of the iron plate! If you’re looking to be entertained while you dine, read on for the best teppanyaki restaurants in Hong Kong.

The first teppanyaki-only restaurant to attain a Michelin star in Hong Kong, IM Teppanyaki & Wine is a small but cosy venue in the neighbourhood of Tin Hau.

The plating of the dishes is also incredibly detailed and aesthetically pleasing, such as the sliced abalone served in its own shell and drizzled with seaweed sauce.
