I can't say enough about this place. It's a hidden gem with fantastic food and welcoming service. Even though I am quite open to trying new things and will eat pretty much anything, this is the perfect place for those who aren't quite as adventurous too. The main reason being you can cook the food to your liking. The reason... More

My wife does not eat raw fish. So, when we visit Japan, we try to find place where food is fully cooked. BBQ is our top choice for dinner. Before visiting this restaurant, we had a great experience in another near-by BBQ restaurant. Since our hotel is just right next to this one and this one scores high here on... More

There is no English sign and we must have walked past it 5 times before finally recognising the telephone no. It's just up the hill from the best western on a corner. Look out for the logo which is a circle with horns. We went with a 1 yr old baby and whilst they had no high chairs we managed... More

We went here and the staff were very helpful, giving us an English menu. we chose the Kobe set menu and the waiter showed us what we had to do. I was very surprised a previous reviewer said the beef was tough as this was the most tender succulent beef we have ever tasted! Simple food but amazing quality and... More

My wife and I dined at the Black Hole after reading the reviews on trip advisor. We had a wonderful meal. We had the set meal of Kobe beef, pork, tongue & chicken for 4500 yen pp, because we weren't sure what to order. We were very happy with it and would recommend that you give it a try.

We had the set menu with kobe beef. The tounge and chicken was not to bad. Too much fat on the pork. The kobe was a disaster. Never before had beef this chewey. Could not chew through the meat.

Located next to the best western hotel in shinjuku and the red light district, this place is a good place to hang out with friend or for dinner. Free flow of beer for 2 hours for $20! Price is reasonable for the Kobe course. Comes with huge delicious salad with sesame sauce too!
