    This restaurant was such a great date experience. I am not from Melbourne so I am glad this was one of the restaurants I got to try while on my trip. The wagyu melts in your mouth! Absolutely amazing.

    First impression it’s a very happy vibe. The restaurant has good atmosphere and the food is really good but we found that the staffs spent most of their time walking around we couldn’t get their attention for service for the time we were allowed to be there. So it was a bit rush to eat and leave . We would love more time to cook and eat and relax with friends.

    Food was delicious, great atmosphere, but the table got very crowded very quickly so it was hard to actually cook or eat since space was a bit of an issue. Cocktails were completely unavailable for some reason but overall pretty happy.

    Venue needs a facelift and menu used to have some nice anime named drinks etc that are no longer available for an unknown reason, other than that it’s still a good place to eat!

    Not great. Nothing seriously bad, just the little things like not starting the bbq or any assistance with food prep at the table (some restaurants do, some don't, but they always tell us which) We had the angus platter and the meat was nothing special, the sides, nothing special either. Also, the beer wasn't cold. Overall, I'd not recommend this place with all the other excellent Japanese bbq in Melbourne. The last one I had was Wagyu One. Much better.

    The quality of food as usual was really good. The service was good, however there were quite a number of items on the menu that weren't available. Otherwise the overall experience was good.

    I went to use the female bathroom when a male staff member pushed the cubicle door open before I could lock it properly and asked to change the half-full bin that was in my bathroom stall. I’m visibly pregnant and needed the bathroom but felt completely uncomfortable after this. I felt very violated and uncomfortable and despite dining here regularly I really don’t think I can come back after this experience. Otherwise service very average and slow - food is fine.

    Our expectations were truly met. The quality of the meat was outstanding. On first impressions the meat platters may appear expensive but after other sides, rice and accompaniments it seems very reasonable. The service was attentive and prompt. It was great that they were adequately staffed as it was a busy night.

    Poor service, ruins the experience. Waiter was rude and not very welcoming and to top it off he was sick! Had to ask several times for items that hadn’t arrived. Gas ran out 5 mins into cooking so had to wait for someone to come change it and then for it to warm up again. Food is nice, but service definitely needs to be improved

    Tetsujin has never disappointed me. Last night I celebrated a farewell with a couple of friends. We ordered the “Chef’s Selection Set” (Set for 2) which came with 4 different kinds of Wagyu. It also came with Salmon Sashimi and Assorted Seafood Fried Salad with their usual sides. We also ordered more dishes because there was 4 of us dining. We added Pork Belly; Tempura Prawn; MB9 Wagyu Skirt; MB7 Cap Eye and Beef Tataki. Highly recommend if you haven’t dined here before.

    Food was spectacular quality. We went with another couple, perfect place for a double date. Only downside is that we wanted cocktails and they weren’t available for some reason. But other than that was great
