Great service great food. I would just order their premium Kobe beef and premium beef tongue as for the main dish next time. The normal beef tastes pretty average. If you spend that kind of money on Japanese bbq just get the best stuff. two people spent about $85 not including tips. we were both very full and satisfied. Will... More

My coworker told me about Tsuruhashi years ago and I haven't been able to get here with a group until now. Yes, it's a la carte but you're paying for quality vs. quantity. I can hold down at AYCE like no other but when it comes to delectably marbled kobe beef, I'm sold and willing to pay more. We made... More

Friendly service, good quality of meats, salad with pecans is okay, beef soup is good. I enjoyed the Kobe beef, skirt steak and pork belly. The red bean ice cream in coconut milk was good. Less wait than Anjin and a bit expensive.

As a an expert in Korean BBQ I've tried real cobe beef from Kobe Japan. Yes it is not the same but for this part of the world and the price you can't go wrong.

Fine place for japanese BBQ. We made reservations here and recommend you do because the place fills up pretty fast and there was a long line waiting by the time we were done. The staff is very nice and the quality of the meat was great. We ordered all different kinds including the galbi, sirloin, tongue. You name it, we... More

At first we were a little suspicious due to a snafu for our large party. The confirmation call happened, but it was mysteriously "lost". After a big scramble to fix it and two hours later, and gracious apologies from the owner and staff, all was well. The meat quality was out of this world. And this is even including the... More

This was a nice Japanese BBQ establishment. It is not very big restaurant, and it seemed like it has been there for a while, so more like older interior design. The meat quality was excellent. We ordered fresh tongue and other parts of the cow that is not too popular, but the quality was great! I didn't like the charge... More

Tsuruhashi features Osaka style "grill your own" Japanese barbecue. * It Is located in a strip mall, and a bit difficult to spot * Select from a variety of fresh meats, including Kobe style beef, rib eye, pork cheek, and sausage- all are delicious and come with a dipping sauce * We would not recommend the seafood platter- it's easy...
