The set menu is great too!

This place is famous for all you can eat 1. Yakiniku (Japanese BBQ - grill and dip in sauces) 2. Shabu shabu (Japanese hot pot - you cook the beef in either boiling water or light chicken broth then dip in sesame sauce) 3.

If you are a beef lover, don't hesitate to try this restaurant. The price is quite high, but it is absolutely value for money. We had both BBQ and shabu-shabu. They were all scrumptious, especially BBQ. I definitely recommend this restaurant!!

Great review by the fellow Trip Advisor readers and we were not disappointed. It was very busy on Saturday and hard to get a time if reservations are not make ahead of time. We ordered both Shabu Shabu and sukiyaki with their highest quality beef, which was very tender and tasty. There was a lot to eat with the full... More

I normally am almost vegetarian but dining at Rokkarsen is a great experience. I tried its famous grilled pork and beef. They are succulent as if they melt in the mouth. I strongly recommend this dish. Seafood is very fresh and sweet. All dishes are well marinated and there is no need to add any spice. The taste is just... More

A pleasant restaurant with a local feel. Great value for money but sad to say that's really about the extent of it. If you've never had wagu beef before, fair enough, go give it a try. Value for money is about the extent of it.

We loved the concept here to be able to have both shabu shabu (hot pot) and yakiniku (bbq) at the same time, especially for a group of 10. We opted for the 7300 yen option which allows all you can eat for 90 minutes. The yakiniku was particularly the highlight with meat that melts in your mouth (a notch under... More

We ordered a buffet all you can eat for Matsusaka beef (not sure if spell correctly) and it was one of the best beef I ever tasted. So highly recommend for beef lover. We kept ordering the beef but the more... More

I have never been to a do-it-yourself restaurant. They cook the sides for you and provide the meat for you to cook on your own. We went for lunch. Arrived at around 11:20am and was told it was a 30 minute wait. The line was already down the hallway. A lot of people came and made a reservation for later... More

My tip is to book ahead! We tried to rock up two times without booking and when we tried to get out of the elevator we couldn't, as the waiting line took up the whole corridor. Me and my partner did not get the set menu but got an array of dishes, the meat here is the best I have... More
