DragonFire features Pittsburgh's only authentic, Japanese Robata Grill. DragonFire's extraordinary menu is created and prepared using only the freshest, highest quality ingredients, by our highly acclaimed chefs.

Robata: Japanese Robatayaki, or Robata Grill. Japanese for “around the fireplace,” the robata grill originated hundreds of years ago among Japanese fishermen who would grill their daily catch while still on the boat, using wooden oars to pass food from boat to boat to share with their neighbors. This slow grilling method relies on oak charcoal to enhance natural flavors, and meats, fish and vegetables are finished with savory marinades. Binchotan, the charcoal used for grilling, is nearly smokeless. It is arranged in a pyramid to evenly and steadily circulate heat around the food, helping to develop savory umami flavors. Because of the simplicity of this cooking style, it is imperative that the ingredients used are of the highest quality. This grilling technique is not only healthy but delicious as well. Achieving perfection through simplicity.

Hibachi: At the heart of the hibachi experience is the teppanyaki table, around which guests gather and enjoy a meal expertly prepared and cooked to perfection on a steel grill, right before their eyes — by a chef who is as much entertainer as culinary master. Our team of highly trained, knife wielding, teppanyaki chefs are sure to entertain. The meal begins with a delicate Japanese onion soup, followed by a salad with choice of a sweet or bold ginger dressing. The chef will prepare your chicken, beef or seafood, along with vegetables, hibachi-style on the sizzling grill surface. Be sure to enjoy the show. Your entrée will be served with homemade dipping sauces, prepeared tableside, and choice of steamed rice, fried rice or noodles.
