Pretty ordinary looking place. Like a 60's hamburger joint. Service was good and the steak probably was as well, but it felt like we were eating a huge slab of foie gras, only with more fat. I prefer US Prime beef, but we had to try it. We would have preferered french fries to a bowl of rice with our... More

The price was not cheap, but the A4 quality Hide beef sirloin just melted in the mouth. They managed to accommodate a large party at short notice, so kudos for that.

Read about Hida beef and this seemed to be the place to go in Takayama. Their beef is categorised into 5 grades, and only grade 3 to 5 qualify to be Hida beef. Grade 1 and 2 are not considered to be good enough. It wasn't too difficult to find following the GPS, and there are 2 or 3 parking... More

Found ourselves to be the only ones in the restaurant. The service was excellent and their best grade beef was really good with the melt in your mouth taste and feel. Would definitely head back if I am back in Takayama.

Our family travelled to Takayama just to eat at this restaurant as we love their hida steak so much!!!!!!! The staff have always been very lovely and the service was so exceptionally excellent that every time we visited Japan we have to include this restaurant in our trip. It is a must try, highly recommended this place.

This restaurant could be anywhere in the world except for the quality of the beef. You choose the cut, grade and size. The taste was excellent but I should emphasize that the atmosphere had little to do with Japan. This may be a plus for those tired of Japanese food. There was an excellent wine list including French Rhones.

We visited the restaurant on a Monday night. It was very quiet and all customers were foreigners, which should tell you a great deal about the restaurant. We had A4 hida beef steak and for the record it was excellent. Even my daughter who doesn't usually eat beef went for one after having tried some from her mother's steak. The... More

We visited on a Monday at the recommendation of our hotel. They said it was one of the best for Hida beef. It was not crowded. Service was efficient. Atmosphere rather bland. Good wine list (nice change of pace from sake). The beef choices are arranged from regular to 3, 4 and 5 star. The portions are also separately itemized... More
