The Kobe steak was excellent. Taking into account the quality of the food and the overall experience, I also think the price was reasonable. The Chef and staff were very friendly and there was a good selection of Japanese whiskys to choose from!

The warm service, food, and restaurant made for a great break from the Japan winter cold. The steak was cooked and cut perfectly and melted in my mouth. You can't go wrong with any order, all you need to decide is how much beef you...More

Expensive food for the quality of the meat, chef and service. Better eat meat in Europe. Also expect a long queue.

This is a cosy little restaurant with superb quality food. It definitely isn't a budget option, but it is well worth the price. The beef melts in your mouth and the chef makes the experience very hospitable. I would definitely visit here again!

I had lunch at a “discount” Kobe beef restaurant, had a great experience there, and so I came here hoping to improve on that by visiting a top rated restaurant. Dinner here was more than double the price of the discount chain, but the quality...More

This was highly recommended in tripadvisor but unfortunately after trying out so many good restaurants in Japan, this turns out to be pretty average for me as somehow I find that the meat that I had, contains a lot of tendon which makes it chewy...More

Description
We mainly serve Kobe beef steak for lunch time and dinner time. We had lots of customers from overseas and they loved our steak because of the quality of beef and the reasonable prices. Every steak we serve is only used rare cuts of beef. There is seafood menu as well. English is available in weekends.
