Teppanyaki Chef Parties / Hibachi At Home
Bay Area Teppanyaki Chef Service at Home
Bring the sights, smells, and flavors of your favorite Japanese Teppanyaki steakhouse restaurant to your home with AWG Private Chefs!
Your exclusive intimate Japanese gastronomy private dining experience is held in an up-close and personal outdoor only dining setting, for parties sizes of a minimum of 6 to a maximum of 25 people. For larger parties, staff served buffet-style service will be provided. Prior to your booking date, your at home Hibachi catering chef will collaborate with you to curate the perfect fully custom-tailored Teppanyaki or Hibachi style menu.
What does Teppanyaki mean?
Teppanyaki (also known as Hibachi) is a style of cuisine cooked on a flat iron griddle. The word Teppan, the metal plate food is cooked on, and yaki which means to grill, broil, or pan fry.
What hibachi menu options are available?
Select from one to three ultra-premium domestic or imported meats, such as Japanese Wagyu beef, heritage breed pork, free-range antibiotic-free, hormone-free chicken, shrimp, premium lobster tail, grass-fed lamb, premium seafood, and the finest quality locally sourced organic vegetables from small family-owned farms, as a part of your private Teppanyaki party chef at home experience menu.
Does the Hibachi experience have to be held outdoors?
Yes. Due to smoke, and live-action fire that is created during the Teppanyaki cooking process, the entire event must be held exclusively outdoors. If you are planning an event during either the cooler months or inclement weather seasons, a heated outdoor event tent or covered and heated outdoor patio or loggia is required. Ask our concierge about referrals to event tent agencies in your area.
What areas do you serve?
Our premium Teppanyaki and Hibachi catering at home services are available to our Northern California clients located in the San Francisco Bay Area, Sonoma, and Napa Wine Country only. Due to the large amount of heavy equipment and staffing required, we are unable to travel outside of these areas for our hibachi service. However, we do offer other types of private chef at home services.

Can I choose what items are on my menu?
Absolutely! We always give you full editorial control over your entire menu right down to the ingredient level. That way you will never pay for something you don't wish to enjoy!

What's makes AWG Private Chefs Teppanyaki experiences different?
Our Teppanyaki private dining experiences are a premium VIP Chef's Table experience, where you and your guests can converse openly with the chef, ask questions, learn about where the ingredients come from, how they are prepared, along with possibly participating in the actual cooking if so desired.
Our intimate Teppanyaki Chef's Table dining experiences are highly focused on the highest quality ingredients and flavors. These events are not a "dinner show" type of entertainment with crazy flying ingredients into hats or pockets, flashing strobe lights, or disruptive drumming on the grill with salt and pepper shakers.
Make your next dinner party a hit as we transform your backyard into the hottest intimate private Japanese steakhouse in town. We'll bring everything including the mobile Teppanyaki or Hibachi grill. Our event design team can custom create a themed, comfortable, and welcoming seating area surrounding the grill for your own front row Teppanyaki Chef's table dining experience.
Fall & Winter Booking Information:
Due to the lower outdoor temperatures in the San Francisco Bay Area, gusty wind, and inclement weather that occurs during the fall, winter and early spring months, fully covered & wind blocked patios or event tents with walls are required from October 15th onward into early spring to allow for a safe, warm, and comfortable outdoor dining experience. Hibachi style cooking can not be done indoors, in garages, etc. due to fire code. Ask our concierge team for a referral to a local event tent rental company when placing your booking request.
We are fully booked for all teppanyaki/hibachi dates for 2021, we are presently accepting reservations for mid-February 2022 and dates beyond at this time.
