Fresh, authentic and flavourful Take-away and restaurant, specializing in Chinese, Thai and Japanese cuisine. I had the 'chef's recommended' Chicken teriyaki with boiled rice and it was really enjoyable. The thing that makes this place stand out for me is that their food is plentiful and not nearly as greasy as many other similar restaurants (aside from the chicken balls). Mind you, it's not as cheap as the others, but it's worth the extra few bob for the quality. The staff are eager to help you without being intrusive and really friendly. Overall a great place to order take-away and would recommend to friends.

Teppanyaki is as much about theatre as it is about cooking.Quite literally, the name refers to food cooked on a flat iron griddle. It was started in post war Japan as a way of cooking western style foods on a flat griddle. It was most popular with western customers who enjoyed the skills of the teppanyaki chefs as they slice, cut, dice and juggle their way through each dish, cooked to order, in front of the customer. So I was looking forward to visiting the Gojinka House of Teppanyaki. Unfortunately, its in Swords and even more unfortunately, its in Swords Manor, just off the Brackenstown Road. It's not an attractive location. Let's leave it at that. The restaurant itself is rather cavernous and dark but the teppanyaki tables are well lit so seek a seat there.
I ordered the chef special, a teppanyaki cooked mixture of chicken breast, prawns and fillet steak with fried rice. It was all cooked in a flash before my eyes and it was delicious. The chef was talented and good humoured. My brother had the seafood special with fresh salmon, a sea bass fillet and four king scallops with fried rice. Both of these cost a total of €48. Throw in a bottle of wine, two bottles of beer and two flasks of hot sake as well as two ebi-fry starters and the bill amounted to €110. We enjoyed ourselves and had a good meal but the place is dismal and its location, abysmal
