The little girl was enjoying a night out with her family at  the Wharf Teppanyaki when an open flame left her in a “serious condition” with burns to her forehead, cheeks and shoulders, reports The Sydney Morning Herald.

At a Teppanyaki restaurant they allow their customers to watch the meals be prepared in front of them on a hotplate.

A NSW Ambulance spokesperson told The Sydney Morning Herald the four-year-old was in a serious condition.

She is currently being treated at Sydney Children’s Hospital in Randwick.

We hope she has a speedy recovery.

  • freak accidents happen – I wish her a speedy recovery, and hope this doesn’t stop this kind of restaurant from thriving


  • A shocking accident which should never have happened. In the photo above the flames are quite high. I thought the flames were supposed to stay under the cook “plate”. I can only think that it had too much “fuel” in it ; fat or oil splashed into it or it was neglectful of the restruant. The flames could have flared so quickly out of control that anybody could have been badly burnt.


  • How awful. I have never been to a restaurant like this, and will not take to my kids to one in the future


  • Wishing this little girl a speedy recovery


  • When there is fire you must keep an eye on children to keep them safe.


  • I hope she recovers quickly. Hopefully the seating at these restaurants will be set a little further back to prevent anything like this happening to someone else.


  • How scary, not what you expect on a night out. Hope she has recovered.


  • Never been a fan of these types of restaurants. Hope the little girl is ok

  • Poor little one! I ate different times in Teppanyaki restaurants and never saw any accident happen. How unfortunate. :-(
