Teppan Edo?

Me and my grandpa have reservations for Teppan Edo on 9/24. I have always wanted to eat there but after reading the menu I'm not so sure anymore. I'm a huge japanese food fan, I got to our local one at least once a week.

Would I disappointed with the food seeing how much I eat it? Plus the food seems so different from what I'm use to for Japanese. Is it worth using the table service on?

I talked myself out of it on my last visit a while back and have been doubting that decision ever since. I decided to definitely go there this time since the balcony at Tokyo Dining (which I understand is kind of connected to Teppan Edo) is a great place to watch Illuminations.

I've eaten there and if you enjoy Japanese food, you will like this

All of your food (with the exception of sushi/soup/salad) is prepared in front of you. The chef usually does a little show whlie preparing the food. Also, it's usually very fresh! I would say to try it since you enjoy Japanese food ^_^

We ate there last trip. The food was excellent. It is rather noisy but a lot of fun.

I'm a huge Japanese foodie. I LOVE this place, my fave restaurant ever.
Was so sad that I couldn't eat there this last trip.

Have you had teppanyaki cooked meals before at your local place? I personally really enjoy it. The chefs are so entertaining. I think it's great for the entire family, and the food is varied so there is something for everyone. Would it be a new experience for your grandpa? I personally really enjoy having family members try new experiences on vacation...makes for great memories.

We love Teppan Edo and we go nearly every trip. The food is delicious, the setting very pretty and the chefs fun.
That said, lots of folks here who frequent a local Japanese teppan style restaurant in their home town, complain about Teppan Edo. These local, non traditional Japanese restauarants serve Fried Rice, which Teppan Edo does not. YOur meal also does not come with soup and salad included.
So if you enjoy your local Japanese steakhouse and Teppan Edo does not appeal to you, I would go with your gut reaction.
Good Luck

We :) Japan!

Teppan Edo is one of the best dinners and one we look forward to every year. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

If you eat at your local hibachi place once a week you may be disappointed because TE doesnt offer fried rice and you do not get soup and salad and appetizer shrimp with your meal...also the veggies seems skimpy to me

We eat at our local hibachi place about 6 times a month and you get alot more for the money than you do at Epcot but I guess you can say that about any WDW restaurant

That being said the food at TE is very good...you just do not get the amount of food for the cost you are paying

I'm so glad to read all of these positive reviews. DH & I are eating there for the first time this January, after we run the marathon. After running 26.2 miles, I'm definitely going to be looking for a good meal.

We have eaten there 3 times, the last time just a month ago. It has been wonderful each time and I wouldn't hesitate to go back.

Our Ratings of Teppan Edo: (rev 1/19/2012)
. . . food price value: C
. . . food quality: C
. . . food quantity per serving: C
. . . food prep speed: B
. . . food selection: C
. . . seating quantity: C
. . . seating comfort: C
. . . eatery atmosphere: C
. . . eatery convenience: B
. . . staff friendliness: B
. . . staff attentiveness: C
. . . character interaction: n/a

NOTE: The hibachi tables seat eight (two each side, four
front side). Sometimes they can squeeze nine if several kids.
Depending upon the chef, it can be exciting and entertaining,
or it can be almost dull. Quality is below a Benihana, but above
average for Japanese cuisine. It should be noted that medium
or large appetites will probably want to stop before or after
dinner for a snack, as the portions are medium-sized and big
eaters can leave hungry. (Just to answer a common question,
they only serve white rice, as fried rice is Chinese.)
