The food was fair, the beef and pork have to me the most flavourful things other then that, it’s very mediocre. Price is fair for 2 people will be around £50 if you order separately but you’ll still be hungry afterwards. The experience is nice but you’ll be worrying more about burning the food more then taking to your partner & the food which is already cooked from Kintan isn’t very nice

Was an enjoyable experience. We took 3 and a half hours to complete our meal, but it was good to take our time as it was a family lunch.

It was a good experience from beginning till the end. Positive points : Great value from the set menu, section waitress was knowledgable
Negative points: dishes weren’t explained as they were being served. Drinks took quite a while to be served.
All of the dishes are quite sweet instead of savoury, having said that the waitress did advise that we could request for plain next time we book the table.

Will I go back again? Yes of course

Temperature check, had to use sanitizer before being seated and big dividers between tables so felt very comfortable. Food was excellent and very flavoursome, I must say we were very impressed with everything, food was in abundance, we went for £125 package for 4 people and it is totally worth it, definitely recommended.

Kintan is my favourite Japanese restaurant in the town. It's always nice and delicious! However,
it was a shame that they don't offer weekend brunch menu now even though it's on the website.

The food was just as amazing and the staff service we got! An amazing first time experience at a Japanese BBQ and our waiter made it so easy for us to get the hang of it straight away! He was always at hand to answer any questions and made us feel very welcome! The pre-selected BBQ meals are great value and the Happy Hour Fridays is well worth the wait. We will be back and I've not stopped singing their praises since!

the restaurant was quite busy at the time so the waitresses are too busy to handle and there was a slight waiting time for them to come to take your order or getting your dishes. however, overall a very enjoyable meal and outstanding dishes.

The all you can eat buffet has a very good value in price. This was my second time here and looking forward to come back. it’s better to
come early because the staff are still not tired so they are still cheerful. But i understand that it must be hard to work like they do.

Was a very nice experience and we would definitely return. Was alittle noisey on the next table. And our waiter seemed lil overwhelmed that he forgot my partner second drink we end up leaving it. We asked for take away boxes again took very longer to return.

It was amazing from the start to the end, as soon as I entered the restaurant I was warmly welcomed and quickly seated in our place. Our waiter was such an amazing guy and helped us though out the night with what to pick and have, he was such a lovely guy and made my first experience an amazing one, food was out of this world, everything from the appetisers to the dessert was absolutely perfect, I would highly recommend this place for anyone that likes modern type Japanese food, 100/10 from me will definitely be coming again!!!!

The woman who served could be a bit better in attitude I felt like she did not want to be there, I understand things have been difficult and maybe her day was exhausting but not an excuse for rudeness. The food and the atmosphere was good. I really enjoyed the food it has been my second time there and I will definitely be back for the food.

The grill was not hot enough. It took ages to cook mushroom medley. Service was slow, took 20 minutes to get our orders. Staff tried to ignore our attention.

It was my father’s first time being out in a restaurant since Covid so understandably he was quite anxious about safety measures. The staff we reassuring as they took our temperature at the door and asked us to use the hand gel upon entry, there were Perspex clear divisions between the tables and hand gel available on the table too. Probably one of the most Covid safe places so don’t hesitate to come here if it’s your first time eating at a restaurant after lockdown. Of course the food was also delicious as it has always been, thank you kintan
