A man whose life was a legend.
A restaurant that began a movement.
Rocky Aoki lived a life of unmatched adventure. Hot air balloonist, cigarette boat racer, Cannonball Run winner, world backgammon champion and Wrestling Hall of Fame inductee, he lived many lifetimes in one.
Accomplished, experienced, sophisticated, Rocky was ahead of his time. An iconic restaurateur, Rocky introduced the concept of “eatertainment” to America fifty-five years ago, blending Japanese-style teppan cooking with showmanship and grandeur to rival the century’s most prolific performances.
His pursuit of life’s finest inspires us to this day.
Now, a new concept from the Father of Teppanyaki.
Rocky Teppanyaki is Rocky Aoki’s vision realized. Immerse yourself in the tastes, colors, sounds and experiences you love about traditional teppanyaki while enjoying its evolution into all the modern palate desires.
Honolulu, long recognized as the world’s most exciting confluence of the East and West, is the ideal home for Rocky Teppanyaki. Our menu takes its cues from the global cosmopolitan city around it, offering dishes that blend cultures and cooking styles from Asia to the Americas and beyond, for true international teppanyaki cuisine. Rocky Teppanyaki offers new dishes, such as hamburgers, Japanese burritos, okonomiyaki and teppan sushi; as well as traditional favorites like steak, fish and chicken. Vegetarian options, a keiki menu and craft cocktails round out a culinary experience that is both familiar and exciting.
Since Rocky introduced open-grill cooking by trained Japanese chefs and entertainers, one thing has remained constant – our passion for satisfying your appetite for exquisite food in a high-energy environment that brings people together for a dining experience you’ll never forget.
Why just have a meal when you can make a memory?
Aloha For Rocky Teppanyaki
Amazing food and even more amazing prices we had a beautiful lunch on the patio and our meals were 12.50 each which was cheap in comparison to anywhere else but the quality I expect from Benihana was still there. They are located beside the Hilton in Waikiki

This is the best place to go to for lunch or dinner here in Waikiki! Great price for high quality service and food. I ordered the filet mignon with the fried rice! They finally brought back fresh garlic into the recipe for the fried rice, it was excellent. The steak was wonderful and cooked to perfection.

We visited while we were on vacation and celebrated my sons 6th birthday and parents anniversary. Everybody had a blast. PJ is by far the best chef with Amazing people skills. He was very friendly and patient with my boys. Sean our server was very informative and on point. He didn't miss a beat and made sure we had everything we needed in a timely manner.

Exceptional teppanyaki as well as service! My experience was with a server Rochelle, she provided a unique experience for my family and I even though it was peak time for business. Upon leaving Shinji left us with a warm goodbye in Japanese which left my wife feeling the Aloha.
