A Tour Around Teppan Edo
When you climb up the stairs and enter you will have Toyko Dining on your right and Teppan Edo on your left. The decor inside is a sleek and modern and definitely nods to a Feng Shui setup.
Teppan Edo is another one of Disney’s communal dining restaurants. Each table has eight seats and surrounds a cooktop. There are four cooktops in each room as you walk down the hall you will hear that it can get quite loud. For those in your party who are shy, the plus to this communal-style restaurant is you sit side by side with one another not across.
You will be asked to wash your hands before you get started. The wipes come in these cute pre-packed baggies. Honestly, every Disney restaurant should do this. Disney can be hot and sweaty not to mention all the germs from everyone.
Food at Teppan Edo
All meals off the grill come with a ginger salad. Watch out for this salad dressing it has a real vinegar taste. I enjoy it a lot, however, my husband no so much.
When the chef comes out to start cooking first he or she will confirm your order. Then it’s on to the good stuff, the dipping sauces. Each person gets an individual serving of a ginger sauce and “yum-yum” sauce.
A soup used to come out with your meal as well but it no longer does. If you want you can pay extra to add a Miso soup to your meal.
They actually cook this sushi on the grill before they get started with the main meal. It’s a grilled California roll topped with shrimp, scallop, tempura, and volcano sauce.
Each meal will come with two dipping sauces, both are fantastic, the ginger sauce is my favorite I think it pairs with everything.
Yum Yum Sauce: Also known as “Japanese white sauce” or “sakura sauce,” yum yum sauce is a creamy and mildly sweet sauce that’s often served with teppanyaki dishes. It typically contains mayonnaise, tomato paste, sugar, garlic powder, and other seasonings, resulting in a smooth and tasty condiment that pairs well with grilled proteins and vegetables.
Ginger Sauce: Ginger sauce is a light and refreshing condiment made from grated ginger, soy sauce, vinegar, and other seasonings. It complements teppanyaki dishes well, especially seafood and poultry.
Now it’s onto the show. Your entire meal will be cooked in front of you!
Once the cooking is underway your server will bring out a bowl of rice. Remember you can always ask for more rice don’t be afriad they won’t charge you extra eithier.

Rice and noodles that comes with the hibachi at Teppan Edo and is pretty much my favorite part of my meal.

Ginger Mousse Cake
This was my favorite out of the desserts though it’s hard to fit in with all the food they serve you here.

Teppan Edo Recommendation
Overall our Teppan Edo dining review is two thumbs up. This is my husband’s favorite spot at Disney and he always requests this spot on his birthday. The service has always been fantastic for us. I like that you have the chef out in front of you cooking and you can customize your order to your liking. Plus the show always keeps the kids entertained. It’s also a great restaurant where it has something for the more adventurous eaters as well as those who like to just stick to steak.

I have been visiting the parks annually since my parents first brought me at just a year old. Recently I was able to fulfill my life long dream of being a Florida local and moved from the wintery Northeast to the sunshine and fun of central Florida. Now I am hoping to share my Disney knowledge with you so you can have the best vacation possible!
