Originally Daikoku are from New Zealand, but you'll find their Suva restaurant is one of the best places in Fiji to get delicious Japanse cuisine. The teppanyaki style of cooking and eating means that a night out at Daikoku in Suva is fun, as well as delicious.
Teppanyaki means that the food is cooked on an iron plate, but traditionally this is done in front of diners; teppanyaki adds an element of theatre to the usual dining experience.
At Daikoku the iron griddles are surrounded by a semi circle of benchtop style dining tables. It's great for larger groups, because everyone fits around the griddle to see the show. If you're a smaller group, then you may end up sharing your table with other diners.
All the food is Japanese, and the menu includes things like sashimi and tempura, along with the other teppanyaki dishes. Make sure you order some teppanyaki, as this will make the most of the cooking performance in front of you. It's not just a regular cooking demonstration, you'll get to marvel at impressive knife skills, and be entertained as your food is tossed around before it lands deliciously in front of you. The chefs are gerat at adding in the energy you'd expect to find at teppanyaki restaurants all over the world.
Dining at Daikoku isn't the cheapest meal you'll have in Suva, but it's reasonably priced and worth the night out. Enjoy the fun of teppanyaki cooking and delicious sashimi using the fresh fish that Fiji is known for.
