The chef makes you feel at home. Staff is so friendly. Amazing vibe so close to a tourist hub. Every bit of your meal is explained including the drinks. Chef loves to chat & pose for pics with us.

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.
