About Us

Established in Feb 2014, Sammons Teppanyaki and Karaoke Restaurant is the first and only Teppanyaki & Karaoke venue on the Mornington Peninsula, offering a contemporary, interactive and fun dining experience for all ages! We are a family owned and operated restaurant, with our chefs and wait staff from all over Asia.


Our talented chefs cook all food on the teppan grill at the table, and perform tricks with their cooking utensils, make jokes, and even throw food. They also love to sing a song or two!


Our menu comprises full banquets, offering appetizer right through to dessert, and we have a kids banquet for ages 5-12 inclusive.

Everyone in your group can order a different banquet, you don’t all have to order the same one! But we do require that everyone does order their own banquet as we do not allow 2 people to share 1 banquet together.

We can also cater for any dietary requirements or allergies, just let us know upon making your order.

Please note that we do not offer takeaway of food or drinks, or BYO.


We have 5 teppanyaki tables at Sammons, all seating between 8 and 14 people.

Bookings are essential as there are a limited number of seats available at each sitting.

For groups of 8 or less, your table will be shared with another group/s, which is a fun way to meet new people!

For groups larger than 14, more than 1 table will be allocated, however the group will not be separated as the tables will be directly next to each other.

Our tables cannot be moved or pushed together, as they are secured to the ground with gas fittings and rangehood canopies etc.


We run a range of sittings throughout the evening, and we run on a timely schedule with our chefs rotating between sittings.

We do ask that everyone arrives as on time as possible, to ensure your group gets to fully experience teppanyaki, and as a courtesy to the other groups that may be seated on the same table.

Sitting times are as follows:
5:15pm to 6:45pm
6:00pm to 7:45pm
7:00pm to 8:45pm
8:00pm to 9:45pm
8:45pm to 10:00pm (8:45pm sitting is run at managements discretion)

Some sittings may be able to run longer, however this is dependent on our bookings for the evening. Please chat to the host on the night.


Our karaoke machine has mostly 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and 00’s songs to choose from and is available on all of our teppanyaki tables.

Just ask our friendly wait staff if you would like to request some songs!


We are available to open for a lunch sitting between Wednesday and Sunday. As this is outside of our normal opening hours, a lunch sitting will need to be arranged at least 1 week in advance, and we do have a minimum spend required.

Please contact us for further information.


We are fully wheelchair accessible, with wide doorways, no steps and an accessible bathroom. Our tables are also at a reasonable height meaning most wheelchairs fit well underneath. Our entryway has a small lip of less than 1cm.

We have highchairs available for kids (please let us know at time of booking if you require one) and a baby change table located in the unisex bathroom for all mums, dads and guardians to access.


For bookings of 6 or more people, we require a deposit of $100.00 to secure the booking.

The deposit will be taken off your total bill on the night of your booking.

We have a 24hr cancellation policy, where we require 1 days’ notice to reduce the number of people in your booking or cancel your booking. If less than 24hrs notice is received, the deposit will not be refunded.


We do offer bill splitting!

We can split the bill as many ways or times as you like; however, we can only accept a maximum of 3 eftpos/card transactions, and as many cash transactions as necessary.

We accept American Express payments, but these will incur a surcharge of 3%.

Visa/MasterCard payments will not incur a surcharge.
