The place is elegant but not pompous and offer a wide variety of meat and dishes for every budget. I totally would reccomend it for your first yakiniku experience.

We sat upstairs on cushions and it was really fun, the meat is amazing and the waiters are all friendly and can help you decide which meat to order. Definitely recommend to anyone who feels like eating meat in kyoto with great wine.

Best meal during my stay in Japan. Delicious Kobe beef teppanyaki. Skip the lettuce wraps (just lettuce and garnish)!

We found this place thanks to tripadvisor reviews. We wanted to try Kobe meat and we ordered Special Assorment of Five. You cook the meat yourself which is really cool and meat was great too. I recomend this place.

The 4 of us turned up just before 7:00 on a Sunday. We were asked to wait 10 minutes, which we did, then were taken upstairs. It was fairly quiet (we were the only people there when we left about 8:30). We had different steaks,...More

We got here at 9:00 pm without a reservation. Actually, the reason we didn't reserve was that we didn't speak Japanese, but when we got here the people who attended to us did speak English. They told us to wait 10 minutes for a table...More

We've been here at lunch time. The steak was delicious and the prices reasonable. Each table has it's separate section and you grill your steak yourself. We had a great time!

Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub,
Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining,
and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with
tourists and local business travelers, making it a
competitive location for ever-new commercial
structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and
trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains.
Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and

We'll give foreign tourists goods made of KIMONO! We offer deep flavored matured Japanese beef served by the pound. Complete a-la-carte menu also available. We also offer various types of wine which go well with Japanese beef. Meat allowed to mature for a certain period in drastic thermal and humidity conditions is known as dry-aged beef. The delicious flavors, strong and well fragranced, will capture you. In our restaurant, we offer matured Japanese beef as grilled meat for you to enjoy in various ways. We use black Japanese beef for the matured meat and use cows raised through original breeding methods, to add more marbled sections. We offer everything from standard cuts to rare cuts. Special private rooms for receptions and spacious rooms for banquets are available.
