A visit to the the seaside led us to Banzai Teppayaki Theater, a Japanese buffet. When I got an invite from Zomato to try out Banzai’s cuisine I was intrigued as I hadn’t yet tried a buffet with a focus on just Japanese buffet. My son, Bastian accompanied me as it was quite a trip from Fairview to MOA.
Banzai offers unlimited teppanyaki dishes, sushi and sashimi, steaks, ramen, tempura, okonomiyaki, takoyaki, and so much more. They also offer unlimited drinks which we kept ging back for despite my rule of not too many drinks when at a buffet. They had Milo and delicious iced tea.
Stepping into Banzai you’re transported to Japan and all its familiar allure. I loved the lighted lanterns especially the orange glow. It made the restaurant intimate despite it’s vast space.
They have a Trick Art Gallery which is where guests can dress up and take playful shots against various Japanese inspired backdrops. Bastian and I had some fun “posing” it up.
This is just one section of the restaurant. We visited on a Saturday and the place quickly filled up. It’s an ideal place for family lunches and celebrations. During the time that we were there, their were 3 birthdays and the staff of Banzai gives a very entertaining rendition of their “Happy Birthday”.
We took a tour of the restaurant and I took as many pictures as I could so I could give you a peek of what you can expect when you make your visit to Banzai.
They have different kinds of pizza and they were very tasty. I enjoyed the Shrimp Enoki Pizza.
Japanese version of Lumpia. Nothing too special but quite crunchy, just how I like it.
Their noodle station is encased in this awesome looking boat and of course they have various kinds.
Their sushi and sashimi section is quite abundant.
Some food presentations to display their best selling dishes.
I’m a proud meat lover (sorry to my vegetarian friends!). They had many cuts of meat that were just juicy and flavorful. I loved the roast duck, pork asado, and barbecue.
The Beef Teppan was the best thing I tasted. I went back for thirds!
The dessert station had everything from cakes to brownies to ice cream.
My first plate. I had 2 plates and was quite full. As you can see my choices were focused on cuts of meat although I did try some of the sushi. I’m not too keen on ramen when I eat out because of my gallbladder having been removed. It makes me prone to trips to the bathroom because the soup is always so oily.
Entertainment was provided and I was really impressed with the juggling act. See the video below. You could tell that Banzai tried to stick to the authenticity of Japanese culture as much as possible.
