- Patrons carry out their own cooking which differs from say Japanese teppanyaki restaurants where there is a chef to do the work for you.
- A large area in the centre of the room was rounded by teppanyaki tables.
- The restaurant never cooks frozen or marinated meat on its two large crescent-shaped teppanyaki hot plates, which can sit a total of 28 persons at one time.
