We stayed at the Noku, which was right down the street from here. The front desk provided a map with various restaurants and we both decided to try this place out, considering we LOVE steak. At the intersection, it is a few doors down on the right. Small intimate place, it has a nice bar area to sit at instead of the tables. The options were great! Good pricing too from $$$$ to $$, so you will definitely find something in your price range. I would recommend this if you are in the area and are craving a good solid quality dinner to replenish. Be sure to stress how you like it cooked. Good wine selection and Premium beer draft. Opens after 5pm until quite late.

Came here as some other reviewers pointed out the great 1980 yen kobe beef lunch special deal. While to lunch wasn't a terrible deal for $17 (some beef, rice, miss, and a small salad) the steak itself just wasn't that great (tasted more like a chewier choice grade vs. Kobe). I'm sure if you order one of the regular menu items it might be much better, but felt like what was being sold was a little misleading. Would have been great if it was more clear the quality of beef you we're getting and more lunch options for higher quality cuts.

Absolutely amazing meal.
I would recommend getting all meat rare though. Ordered everything medium rare except one kobe sirloin rare. The rare sirloin was everyone's favorite. The medium rare cuts all came with little to no pink and seemed more like medium well. Nonetheless there were no complaints at the table. It was the best meal every single one of us at the table ever had.

Had half pound of the best quality wanyu sirloin I've ever had. Highly recommend a visit when you come to Kyoto!

Besides the beef, side dishes e.g. the oxtail soup, the garlic rice, were great too.
