Teppanyaki Is Located off of Seigen lane in Baton Rouge, LA. They claim to be the largest and Finest Oriental Buffet in Town. They may very well be correct as we were very impressed. The place is owned and operated by a man named “Nick” Whom Moved here from New York and Opened a small take out place called Hot Wok. After several years of successful operation he expanded into where he is now. This restaurant offers several unique features that sets them apart, such as a Full Dim Sum bar, HUGE sushi bar, chocolate fountain, Salad bar, and Frozen Yogurt.
This place is HUGE! Also very clean, well staffed with friendly English speaking waiters and servers. We were seated right away and our drink were brought promptly. Then we started our feast.
I noticed they had real Louisiana Crawfish and Blue crab on the bar. So I had to sample them along with some of the many varieties of Sushi they offer. Crawfish were great, easy to peel. Sushi was very fresh and was noticeably made by someone with Skill. They also offer several dipping sauces such as Ell sauce, Ponzu sauce, spicy mayo and soy sauce.
I went back for more Sushi several times! As you can see it is just about impossible to try them all in one visit. *note this picture was only about 1/2 of the Sushi bar!!
Next I noticed this place has an entire bar dedicated to Dim Sum appetizers. I have never seen this in any other oriental Buffet in my life. Which I thought was very cool Although I admit I do not know what most of them are, it all looked and smelled great. I did try the pork dim sum and pork rib dumpling, very nice. Hot and fresh! I will be sure to venture out and try some other items here next trip.
Now on to my favorite part of the meal. the Hibachi Grill. This was outstanding! They have while steaks lines up on blocks of ice like a steakhouse. so I pilled up some onions, 2 steaks and 2 eggs on my plate. I then smothered it all with the hot chili paste offered at the end of the hibachi bar. The Grill master cooked it to PERFECTION. SOOOO tender and flavorful and he fried the eggs over medium (most places will scramble the eggs and chop the steak into bits and mix it together) which is good but I loved this so much more. I had 2 plates of this ( I was sorry later as I ate way to much!!) but it was well worth it for how good it was!! (Click on pic to see full size)
For dessert they offer Yogurt instead of teh traditional ice cream. They have several flavors and toppings. I had death by chocolate and cookies& cream mixed together with sprinkles on top. It was a good ending to this dining experience.
Needless to say we WILL be back to this place. after all is said and done I am confident in saying this is by FAR the BEST Oriental Buffet in Baton Rouge. There was a WIDE variety of dishes we could not even begin to get into this time .
