Dinner at Wagyu Ya Teppanyaki at The Glen

Wagyu Ya Teppanyaki is an affordable yet elevated Japanese teppanyaki experience in the heart of foodie hub Glen Waverley, featuring high end quality produce and highly skilled chefs. It is located at The Glen just outside the shopping centre in the terrace dining precinct (easy parking). We were one of the first to be invited along for this stunning Teppanyaki experience in Melbourne's eastern suburbs.

This standout offering comes from a team with Roy Yu at the helm, that has brought Melbourne high end dining joy with several popular restaurants including Wagyu Ya, Yakikami and Niku Ou.

A pinnacle of the experience is the exclusive offering of melt in your mouth KOBE Beef (the king of beef), as the sole provider of this famous gem in Victoria. We have experienced KOBE beef in the past at sister restaurant Yakikami and can say the marbling and taste is extraordinary. Once again this was a major highlight of our meal.

The Whole Lobster experience is extraordinary as the chefs prepare the dish in front of you. The French-style sauce was outstanding with the Lobster which was perfectly cooked, with stunning presentation.

The atmosphere at Wagyu Ya Teppanyaki is a highlight, with a front row seat to the action across the open teppanyaki grill, in front of mesmerising chefs. The sense of theatre and appreciation of the fine skills of the chefs is something to behold.
