My husband and I walked in without a booking, and luckily they had a free table. Neither of us tried the Kobe, I had the short rib and Tony had the Brisket. Both steaks were delicious, but the short rib was melt in the mouth fantastic! The best steak I've had.
The service was lovely, the waitresses were very attentive.
Overall we had a great dining experience. Definitely come here for a visit if you want a great steak dinner!
Domo origato!

Seriously the best steak I have ever eaten! I went for the chuck eye steak which is around the neck area, so it is a little fattier than other cuts, but if you like that sort of thing, this is a great steak to have! Te meat was seasoned so well and just melted in the mouth! Amazing service and friendly staff! Once we had all chosen our steaks and ordered they cut it and bring it all out pre cooked to show you what you are having and then 10 minutes later it’s back out ready to eat! So so good!
They also have this amazing garlic, soy and onion type sauce on the tables that went really well with the steak! You can also buy it from them too!! Highly recommend this restaurant, if you want a small break from Japanese cuisine! We all loved it here!

Ps. If you’re a western tourist (so taller than the average Japanese man) then watch your head walking up the stairs to get in, as they have a very low wooden beam that I banged my head on very firmly!

We walked in at 10:45pm with no reservation when the restaurant was cleaning up from the rush of the night and they happily still served us delicious and high-quality meals, a great wine from a nice selection, and an English menu to make it easy on us. Good for families, couples, anyone. We didn’t try many other items on the menu to save room for the highlight, the steaks.

Don’t get me wrong, the steaks are great. In fact they are so good, it’s not really worth paying the premium for a Kobe sirloin. The fillet was actually tastier and more juicy than the Kobe sirloin that we had and it was less than half the price (¥8,000 vs ¥18,000). And from the 250g of the sirloin, at least the 50g were inedible fat. Besides the steaks, there is not much else on offer. Starters and sides were really bland. Atmosphere was also very substandard and touristy. Oh, and the sirloin arrived first, finished eating it and then the fillet arrived. So service was average too. Hence the 3 stars.

The kobe rib roast was amazing. It had incredible flavor and was perfectly caramelized. It was soooo tender. I was pleasantly surprised to find wasabi on the platter but it’s maybe better than horseradish.

If you intend to order the kobe, make sure to let the waiter or waitress know so they can bring out a list of available cuts.
