Food and customer service was outstanding. We called at noon and were able to get a reservation for 1PM. It is a small place so I do recommend getting a reservation. We tried the rice bowl and the tartare, the quality was amazing and delicious. The master chef also gave us complementary drinks at the end for being foreigners. Highly recommend!

We had the kobe beef set dinner that came with soup, salad and rice. The beef was very good, it just melts in your mouth. The chef cooks each portion individually and they only use the best part from the cow.
We happened to celebrate a birthday there and the chef was very generous to treat us to free drinks.
Overall, it was an enjoyable time with the tasty food and attentive service, while still reasonably priced for kobe beef.

Tuesday 9/4/18: My family and I were traveling southward in Japan when Typhoon Jebi hit the city of Kyoto as we were climbing through the red “Torii” gates of the famous Fushimi shrine. We only made it to the halfway point after an hour of climbing when we were told to climb back down since Typhoon Jebi was straight at us. We were disappointed but complied for safety reasons after all.

9/5/18: However, we got to visit the next city we had in mind, which was Kobe. Since our millennial sons, who were traveling with us, wanted very much to try the genuine Kobe beef, in the actual city of Kobe! Armed with Tripadvisor’s app, we found our restaurant of choice.

We had a delectable and most memorable beef eating experience of our lifetime thus far!!! The most moist, very tender, juicy and tasty beef was grilled by the Chef!!! To top that, our Chef and hostess were delightful and kind. Our Chef extraordinaire put on his karaoke face and delighted us with a traditional Japanese song upon our request.

This is a must try when in Kobe!
