The Fujiya of Japan is all about teppanyke cuisine. The chef prepares your food directly at your table on a teppan - on a hot iron plate. He fries fish, prawns, scallops, steaks and vegetables and serves it with different sauces. The fujiya offers a variety of menus with 5 to 9 courses from salads and soups through to sashimi and sushi and deserts. Teppanyoki lets you enjoy the smell of the fragrant ingredients while the chef cooks cooks them in front of you - definitely a remarkable though quite pricy experience.

If you like it hot, try the Malaysian sambal king prawns which have a particularly fiery kick.
We recommend rounding everything off with a steaming pot of fragrant Chinese tea.

Charlie Chan is something of a Cambridge institution. For more 30 years this family-run restaurant in the city centre has continued to maintain high standards, offering great food and efficient service, much ti the delight of a very loyal local following.
Spread over two floors, Charlie Chan provides fresh , homemade dim sum , which the local Chinese
community flock to enjoy. Although the menu is perhaps shorter than those often found in London's Chinatown, the quality of the lunchtime dim sum is second to none. The atmosphere in the casual ground floor dining room is like something straight out of Hong Kong with lots of chatting in between diners and staff giving the place a real buzz.
By contract, the plush upstairs dining room provides more formal ambience - with a capacity of 90
it's perfect for special celebrations. Live dinnertime jazz, which features every Friday and Saturday
evening between 8pm and 11.30pm, can be enjoyed while perusing a menu combining familiar favourites with the more exotic dishes favoured by Chinese guests - including students yearning fot the flavours of home-cooked food. Whatever your preference, there is a great selection for everyone, including vegetarians and those with gluten-free requirements.
For real homemade Chinese food in Cambridge, it has to be Charlie Chan.
