We arrived early evening without a booking. We asked for a table and the staff member was about to send us away and then said that if we waited 10 minutes then they should have a table. When we were seat it was in a little booth-like seat with a grill in front. We decided on the special selection with wagyu at 6,000 yen per person. There was sausage, marinated pork, mushroom, pumpkin and two types of wagyu plus miso, rice and unlimited shredded cabbage with a good dressing. The price included a drink. It was nice to cook the meal ourselves and we enjoyed everything we tasted. It was quite expensive but it was an fun and different experience and a good way to try the wagyu beef. The service was polite and efficient. They allow smoking inside the restaurant but it was masked by the smells from the grills. Overall we had a good experience.

Had the worst experience ever: pricey terrible meat claimed as wagyu but it wasn't even close( not for the taste nor for the texture of the meat), terrible customer service with dumb waitress who didn't care at all about our complaints. The manager was completely uninterested about the customer satisfaction and barely said he was sorry about what happened...
Avoid this place, they will just give you bad food at high price!

I went back to this restaurant again this Spring as I stayed in Hotel Shinjuku Gracery. The restaurant is 2 min walk from the hotel.

Quality of the beef and other meat is great. Highly recommend to order the set meal 5000 yen for Wagu beef and 4000 yen for ordinary beef. Price is reasonable due to the quality of the beef, customer services and atmosphere!

It was a great experience to be able to 'grill' meat at one's table oneself. The restaurant is obviously popular for Wagyu beef. We tried a variety of dishes. The meet tastes great despite our lack of experience with grilling. The servers are very helpful and are happy to show guests how to work the grill. Its not cheap but the quality of the meet is also very good so no complaints. I would suggest going early as its fills up quickly and waiting times can be really long.
