If you are in Tokyo and want an amazing experience of teppanyaki with lobster and Kobe beef this place to visit. In a small street out of big traffic. This is my second visit and I'm looking forward for the next one ! I recommend the place !

We sat at the teppanyaki tables in the basement, but we still ordered sashimi in addition to our kobe steaks. The amuse bouche (tofu with a roasted chestnut) was to die for! I recommend it.

Had dinner here with my husband in October 2014. We had no reservation so we ended up at a side table, which suited us perfectly. I took the cheapest menu, my husband one of the more expensive, both of us selecting Kobe beef. We were both very happy with our choice of restaurant, a good memory from Roppongi!

I had a few quick pieces of nigiri sushi and was really unpleasantly surprised with these pieces going for Y500-800 each. Add to that an Y800 small glass of draught beer, a complementary appetizer that was actually chargrd for on the bill and a 10% service charge and you get the picture... Not a "$" place, but rather "$$$/$$$$". It... More

The setting is lovely (a modern take on the traditional teppanyaki set up), the staff friendly and helpful, and the food is generally very good. Let me concentrate on the positives before I get to the negatives. The decor is very modern, unlike any teppanyaki place I've been to before. One chooses from four basic set menus. We had beef...

The food was excellent - I had kobe beef as my main and my wife had an assortment of vegetarian dishes. We would absolutely return to this place and recommend it to anyone who will be... More

We were suggested to this restaurant by the concierge at the Grand Hyatt hotel and were not disappointed. The restaurant looks stunning, from the street view to the bar as you enter to the dining room downstairs. The reason to go is for the teppanyaki experience. The best way to navigate the set menu choices (you choose from three) is... More
