Japanese Steakhouse

What is Teppanyaki?

Quite simply, Teppanyaki translates literally to “grilling on an iron plate.” In traditional Japanese cuisine, Teppanyaki style cooking is used for meats such as steak and seafood, as well as vegetables and rice.

Teppanyaki is most often confused with Hibachi grilling. Hibachi, however, utilizes an open-grate grill, whereas teppanyaki uses a flat, solid, griddle-style cooking surface. This makes Teppanyaki suitable for cooking smaller and more finely chopped ingredients, including rice, onions, carrots and mushrooms.

Teppanyaki cooking was first introduced to the United States shortly after World War II, and the concept of the “Japanese Steakhouse” quickly gained popularity. Diners enjoy Teppanyaki cooking not only for the fresh, flavorful Japanese ingredients, but also for the performance artistry of the teppanyaki chef who masterfully chops and dices the food, then sets the entire grill aflame in the blink of an eye.

Ron of Japan's was amazing like it has been for the past 35+ years I have been coming here. The egg sauce is life changing and incredibly rich. The shrimp are unlike anything I've ever had in my life and I always have to have at least 4 every time I come in.

We have been going here for years. Moved away and drove 4 hours to come back to celebrate my daughters birthday. We ordered the Shoguns. Best lobster ever! Chef was fantastic, food was excellent, as usual. Our only complaint was that the music was quite loud. Can't wait to go back.

Ron of Japan is one of our favorite places to dine, always happy with the service and food. We have become regulars, and appreciate how the staff now recognizes us. We love watching the food being prepared, and are happy to bring whatever we can't finish home for tomorrow's lunch. Although we typically get a private table during off-hours, we have met some fantastic fellow diners over the years. Highly recommended!
