The Sushi and Teppanyaki restaurants on MSC Cruises are part of their specialty dining and have a separate charge.
While Kaito Teppanyaki requires an extra fee per person (see attached menus), Kaito Sushi Bar charges additional fees based on the dishes ordered a la carte. However, guests can also enjoy a set tasting menu as part of selected dining packages or as a free gift for Voyager’s Club members who reach the highest level, Diamond.
Is the Sushi restaurant worth it on MSC?
I made it a point to try Kaito Sushi several times on my last journey both for lunch and dinner. With the specialty dining package, the options were limited to a fixed set of items which were all a bit hit or miss with prep and food quality. On the third visit, I decided to try ordering from the rest of the menu which was discounted 50% for each item since I had a dining package.
The a la carte items were more interesting and better prepared so my conclusion was after several times at Kaito Sushi, that using a “dining experience’ or dining package credit wasn’t worth it but a quick bite from the a la carte menu was the better choice.

Kaito Teppanyaki on MSC Cruises
A meal at Kaito Teppanyaki is not just about delicious Asian flavors but also provides entertainment with acrobatic preparation by specialized chefs. Guests can enjoy catching flying pieces of frittata, seeing a rice snake slithering toward their plates, or even eggs cracked and scrambled on the table in front of them.
If you’re using a dining package credit, there is a surcharge for booking at the teppanyaki restaurant ($10). It’s great for entertainment value and the food is really good too. Is it worth it? If you’re looking for a bit of entertainment and a way out of the Main Dining Room fiasco, then it’s definitely one of the better options, even if it is an extra charge.
