Fun but not a career
Teppan Chef (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB31 July 2018
Great fun job with some great people to work with. Not a career to be stuck in though. I want something I can be more proud of something where I can make a difference in people's lives and be well respected internally and externally.

You usually learn things based from what you experience with your customers and the things your co-workers teach you.
Salary is just minimum and no overtime, but tips is good.

Cool place for students
Teppan Yaki Chef (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB22 May 2015
I learn how to cook with this job and become more confident since i'm practicing public speaking in front of a group of customers all the time. Management wise, there are quite a bit changes in management team recently, seems chaotic. Co-workers are cool, fun to hang out with. Hardest part of the job would be serving customers with proper manner as well as maintaining the quality of productions. I honestly enjoy every part of the job, but it is time to move on.
Pros
Fun to work
Cons
Low salary

fun, productive, amzing experience
tepanyaki chef (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB5 March 2014
working at Japanese village was a fun enjoyable experience for me as a chef. i would work 5/6 days a week, 8 hour shift. i learned to be confident in front a lot of people and also i learned some really awesome techniques of entertainment and food preparation. Japanese village is a family business and have been around for many many years, the owners and managers are doing an exceptional job at running the business as they have a loyal customer market in Edmonton.The chefs there have been working there for a long time and the public have grown to love them and thus having their own personal chefs on request. the hardest part for me was learning a trick show with my fork, spatula and knife as i was never exposed doing "dangerous" tricks in front of people, but as time went by, the more tables i cooked for i gained the confidence and became comfortable with using my equipment. For me the most enjoyable part of working there was the people i worked with and the people i met and cooked for, i learned so many different things about people and their cultures. my co workers became my family as i had no family in Edmonton. i gained some strong friendships and a second home there.
Pros
delicious staff meals, made by a vietnamese chef, fun working kitchen, regular customers, weekly tips and side tips were very good.
Cons
far from home, my educational skills of foods were barely used.
