Great little gem in Takayama.

We were walking around trying to find somewhere for dinner and found this little gem. They have a English menu and it's very reasonably priced. The staff were lovely and our food arrived quickly. I loved my 'beef in a box' . Definitely recommend this restaurant for a great value meal.

We went here as the restaurant we wanted to go to was full up and we were pleased with the meal we had. The menu is clearly explained in English and the food was very nice and reasonably priced. We spent about 4800 yen for both of us. They also provide free WiFi for patrons, which was handy. The hida... More

It is never easy choosing a restaurant especially if you are not sure if they are either open or what they are offering. 'English menu inside' isn't much help . Finding this welcoming eatery was therefore pot luck. We were well received by the pleasant young waitresses. To save the mystery of choosing we went for a set menu which... More

I came across this restaurant entirely by chance as I was looking for a place to have dinner. It seems most restaurants in town are serving the local specialty, Hida beef, but many of their prices are steep. Tenaga Ashinaga's menu list dishes (in English) that are affordable which is why many guests eat here. The servings were delicious and... More

Something about this restaurant drew us in after a morning of exploring Takayama. We both enjoyed heaping bowls of hot noodle soup. The staff was very efficient and run a nice place.

We were three people and we ate two noodle and one udon. All with hida beef. Everything was very good and the price was reasonable. Specially if you compare it with other restaurants in Takayama

We ate here twice. The first time chose it mainly because it had enough on the menu outside in English!! The second time because we actually went to another restaurant nearby where we were seated and then studiously ignored for about 15 minutes till we walked out. (Our only experience of this sort in Japan.) We then just came back... More

We saw "TripAdvisor" outside and entered. An Australian tourist who was paying his bill spontaneously recommended the barbecue beef so that's what we ordered with my wife doing the preparation on the propane grill brought to the table. She had read about Hida beef prior to our trip and knowing I'm not a fan of a lot of fat on... More

Last night I went with three other Aussies and an American to this atmospheric eatery in Takayama. We each had a meal set, tasty Hida (local) beef or pork with tasty sides, rice, small glass of beer or wine or sake. It was crowded because it was festival night but we only twaited ten minutes. We then sat in a... More
