“One, two, open your mouth” shouts the chef as a fried potato goes flying from his spatula towards your head. Everyone around erupts in cheers as it miraculously lands in your mouth. This type of hammed-up teppanyaki cooking takes place every single night at Sapporo, along with plenty of spinning of instruments and the odd burst of flames flaring up from the grill. With hordes of punters crowded round the restaurant’s sizzling teppan bars, there’s no denying Sapporo’s fun, buzzy atmosphere. There’s a vast array of sushi, including a Glasgow roll (no, not filled with chips and cheese, rather a smoked haddock and asparagus tempura) and some warm appetisers such as duck pancakes. Meat and fish is then cooked in front of you. The lemon sole works particularly well, the flash-frying on the hot metal grill gives the fish a crisp shell, while the inside remains delicate and moist. The Porterhouse steak isn’t as impressive given the £27 tag, being rather flavourless and fatty. At Sapporo, there’s a sense you are paying for the fun of the teppanyaki experience as much as for the food.
With roaring flames, expert trickery and a fully interactive experience, visiting our Japanese restaurant in Glasgow is never simply ‘grabbing a bite to eat’. Our restaurant and sushi bar is a popular destination for Glaswegians and visitors alike, and we are sure that each time you visit us you will be captivated by what we have to offer.
