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.

Shiki never disappoints. The quality and service are second to none. 19 years ago my husband proposed to me at Shiki and we go back every few years (when the budget allows). We will go back next year for the 20 year anniversary of the proposal and look forward to it.

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
All in all 9/10

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 food was amazing...really good quality fish, lobster and steak and perfectly cooked by our own teppanyaki chef! The dessert looked stunning and tasted great too. 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.

WOW. what a great experience my wife and I had, food was great, staff were great, socialism with other diners is apparently the done thing which was also great to boost the mood at the table.
The fire and flames are a fantastic experience that's for sure, very entertaining.
we both thoroughly enjoyed our night.
Thank you Shiki restaurant, and staff for a great experience.

I common beer ( Boags )from the list was not available. The first Red wine i selected was not available and the second was a later vintage than described on the list. The table we moved to for dessert was in a very tired area and the table surface was sticky. Despite advising, at the time of booking, that the dinner was to celebrate a birthday there was zero acknowledgement. the night was somewhat disappointing and not in line with the Shiki we frequented six or seven years ago.

It’s a great show. The food is of very good quality. The service was impeccable. It is a little expensive and it is not really the place to have a nice bottle of wine as there are so many different courses to match. We really enjoyed it and will be back.

Overall, we had a wonderful time. There were some mistakes with my order as I wanted to try the meals with the matching soju instead we were given the matching wine! Also, we ordered a different meal to the one which was served. We were not too fussed but in my perspective, this should not have happened especially to a restaurant of this caliber! In addition, I found plastic in my entree which surprised me.

Shiki is one of our favorite restaurants in Adelaide, as we love the friendly service and attention to detail in the cooking, which makes the high quality ingredients shine. Despite Shiki being quite pricey, the consistency of the food and service means my husband and I are frequent customers. Having said this, our recent experience was rather disappointing. The ingredients were still high quality and the service was as fantastic as ever, but the cooking of the food left a bit to be desired. We have become used to the dishes being cooked to perfection, but this time the food was either under cooked or over cooked. We understand that restaurants can have bad days, so we will not let this experience deter us and we will return to Shiki to hopefully make up for this meal. Perhaps the chef being new played a part, and further training using the griddle is required.

As always, the food at Shiki was outstanding, I actually really enjoyed the sashimi this time (I'm not normally a fan of raw fish but found that for some reason this time, I really took to it).
My wife and I haven't been here year for two years, so the place has changed a bit. Our only real criticism was that the chefs weren't as entertaining as they were the last couple of time were were there, where they really showed off their knife skills and they were almost acrobatic with the utensils. This time, it was just routine to them and nothing really out of the ordinary.
That said, it was fantastic food, great service from the staff, great atmosphere and we will definitely be going back.

This is one of a number of times we have visited the Shiki restaurant. We love it! There are a good amount of options to choose from. The food was to die for! We chose the Hanabi banquet - more than enough and a great variety of both seafood and meat. The Wagyu steak was one of the best I have eaten and the tempura prawns were a delight.
The chef cooking in front of us was engaging and fun. We had a group of eight ranging from 17 years old to 51 and everyone had a great time. The waiting staff were prompt and very friendly - we were never out of a drink and the changeover of plates etc. was quick and efficient.
I would highly recommend this restaurant. Thanks for a memorable night!

+ Very good food prepared right in front of you
+ Quiet entertaining to watch the skilled chefs
- Seated very close next to other guests, therefore lack of privacy. Ask for a separate table for important conversations, you'll miss out on the kitchen show though
- Sitting right next to where the food is prepared means your clothes smell of kitchen fumes a little after dinner
- Even though the food was good and plenty I had expected a little more creativity for the $$

Absolutely awful. 1. They couldn't find my reservation. 2. Food is below average. It is no better than an average hibachi restaurant in any suburban town in America. (I am American, so that's my vantage point). 3. The value was awful. $200 for a terrible meal. I read the reviews and they are totally off base.
