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.
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.
