Adelaide’s Shiki is a favourite among locals and visitors for its traditional and fresh take on Japanese Cuisine served in its inviting restaurant, located on the Upper Lobby of the luxurious five-star InterContinental Adelaide.

For starters, the sashimi selection or the tempura soft shell mud carb are sensational selections. Some of Shiki’s popular dishes include letting us choose for you with our range of set menu selections such as the Kayki which includes lobster tails infused with truffle butter or the Hanabi which includes seared Mt Gambier beef tenderloin steak with fried garlic and green peppercorns.

Shiki's Japanese green tea ice-cream with red bean sauce is the perfect dessert with which to finish your meal.

Hi there,

I went to Shiki a number of years ago and it was lovely and the food great but I was hugely disappointed by the dinner. It was loud, customers were poorly dressed (whole standard has gone down) and the food was average.

Really disappointed bu the overall experience.

Shiki restaurant is very overpriced for your typical teppenyaki restaurant. It is absolutely the worst value. I paid $300 for a few beers (me and wife) and the two seafood options (130 each drinks not included). The chef basically stood there barbaquing with no tricks or skill and sauces were already at tables before you sat down (not made at time of serving). The most efforts was put into a friend rice and some sort of cheap vegetable stir fry which was more Chinese food than Japanese. Having dined in more than 10 teppenyaki places this place is a disgrace for the price they charge. No more than $80 per head max but I guess it’s one of those places where once only customers goto and it keeps it afloat. But as usual they start at $110 per head and tried to upsell to $145 (their standard recommendation for ‘value’. Their is a Japanese place across the road and another hotel which I would strongly advise going to over this place which for same price actually offer a great degustation. Avoid at all costs!!!

Disappointing experience considering how much we spent on the night. Ambience nothing fantastic for an expensive Japanese restaurant (no welcoming committee like others) and the waitress that served us was grumpy and unhelpful. I booked for my son's birthday and they didn't even try to acknowledge the occasion whilst other tables sang for their guests. Chef was dismal as compared to other tables. Not happy at all with the restaurant as a whole!

We love Shiki and always come for our anniversary! The only complaint we had was that our order was lost and it was only when the chef questioned it with the staff that our order began to be prepared. We had our entrees but the waited for approx 40 minutes before our mains even came out.

If you are looking to experience beautifully presented food that is high quality - Shiki definitely delivers. You will pay for it but it certainly doesn't disappoint on quality and taste. The smells and open tepinyaki grills are fun to watch, however the seating position means it is a little more difficult to interact if you go with a small group. There are options to sit off to the sides for couples or larger groups but all in all if that is the only small down side, I say you are still on a win. :-)

We have attended Shiki numerous times and we absolutely always love it. This time was a little unusual in that there was a table of whoooo girls and they were making a lot of noise and disrupting the normally serene and lovely ambiance of the restaurant, at no fault of the restaurant, I might add. The Manager did tell them to quieten down but only after about an hour.

Wow!! Absolutely AMAZING food, impeccable service, can’t recommend it enough! We did the Keyano set menu - best choice, bit of everything! Stand out was the Wagyu beef on the tepanyaki- cooked to perfection it just melted in your mouth but the barramundi & scallops were pretty amazing too (crispy on outside juicy & tender in the middle) melted in your mouth also!
For a special occasion dinner this was the perfect choice for us, if you haven’t been to Shiki, hurry!! Worth every cent!!

Excellent/ personal opinion is decor is dark needs to be brighter
Main window needs cleaning as it is a feature
Decor is “tired” and needs a painting uplift

But food and service is outstanding both quality and presentation and value

We each had the Hanabi set menu ($120 pp), each couple is cooked for by the chef separately which is good as it gives you time to digest each course a little bit (there is plenty of food).

I never eat seafood, but at the Sashimi, Prawns, Lobster; all amazing (except my wife and I were not particularly fond of the King Fish Sashimi). Beef Tenderloin was simply mouth watering and so tender, cooked perfectly and great flavour. Udon delicious as well.

As you are eating, chef will point out which sauce is best suited to the course you are eating. Chef was really accommodating, asks how you want your meat cooked, plays it up a little bit when you want to take a video or photo. Service was non-stop, the servers were coming around, taking plates, filling wine, all without needing to be called.

Could not say anything bad about the service or food here, it is definitely somewhere to try if you are ever in Adelaide, and as a local Adelaidian I will be back for sure.

If you are after an intimate dinner setting where you get to sit there and canoodle and be all mushy mushy, probably not a great idea because you share the grill with 8 other people, but if you are just there for a great dinner experience, that won't matter, that's why they have rooms in the hotel and the bar next door.

It is a bit pricey, but you certainly get what you pay for in spades. Be aware there is a surcharge on all non-cash payments (inc. Visa and MasterCard).

The Sake i had was nicely balanced, and my husband liked the wine list. Overall a really special dining experience...only thing that would make it better would be more of a view of the river.

This was an upmarket Japanese Teppanyaki restaurant located in the Intercontinental Hotel. The service was quite good but they did not take away all empty glasses etc. so we were left with some. Don't understand why the waitstaff cannot see everything at once. The food was delicious although I feel paying $37 for 5 prawns was too much because that was all you got just 5 prawns! They have a set menu which at the end of the day we did not get and opted for a la carte which gave us what we wanted and with a bottle of wine, one beer and a sake ended up less than the set menu that had no alcohol! The teppanyaki chef was very skilled and plated all meals well. This is definitely a one off experience and I enjoyed it but there are many upmarket Japanese restaurants in Adelaide so it would be good to try them all.
