The unique culinary concepts of kaiseki and teppanyaki are rooted in the traditions of Japanese haute cuisine.

Considered one of the world’s finest Japanese culinary experiences, kaiseki is presented as an upscale multi-course menu consisting of a sequence of cold to hot (light to heavier) dishes. Presented by Oborozuki’s head chef Kei Takamatsu, each dish is prepared simply to emphasise the natural beauty and flavour of premium quality seasonal Australian ingredients.

Meanwhile, the restaurant’s teppanyaki experience offers an immersive and engaging 10-course dining experience led by head chef Feliz Zhang’s talented teppanyaki chefs.
