Good fatty beef!

Very good beef. It's fatty so very soft and tasty. Standalone cooking stations at tables! Cool and effective! Lots of choices from menu. Not cheap. Reservation suggested.

We went to have dinner to this restaurant. We ordered something that looked like first quality beef, and as a picture in the menu showed it was more than enough for two people, the price was high but it look like something that was worth it, we took two of those. Once we got the meat there wasn't even enough... More

We checked out a couple of restaurants before settling for this one. It seems quite popular so you have to queue a little even for lunch. You write your name down and they call you when it's your time. The menu is English friendly. It was a little cheaper than we expected for lunch at about 20 pounds or 4000... More

If you're looking for great quality Hida Beef, this is the place to go. The front of the restaurant is actually a meatshop, and you won't initially notice that there's actually a restaurant behind. The food they serve is nothing but great melt-in-your-mouth meat. The selection is pretty wide, too, and would most definitely fit whatever budget you have. I... More

I went there with my husband and my parents. We ordered 2 types: Premium Beef Cube Steak Set and Beef Grilled Set. Both were delicious but the premium was so tender that melted in the mounth. I had never eaten anything like it. Unforgettable taste.

Great hida beef taste. My family and I came to Maruaki and loved the food. Excellent taste and good service. Check out the grilled beef (yakiniku) beef... The Hida menu is excellent and just as good as the Hida -A premium beef for half the price.... We are a family of 5. Try the sake kurasake brand, very good and... More

We went to Maruaki to try the sukiyaki and we are very happy with the choice. The dish was for 2 persons and the quantity was more than enough to satisfy our appetite. Quality is overall good although the meat didn't really taste like A5 level. The cook took all the time needed to explain us how everything had to... More

My Dad and I shared the 3200yen beef platter. It came with several types of vegetables too, which was a nice break from just the beef. I liked being able to cook it at your table, that was fun. I thought the beef was excellent, especially when you added the coarse salt on top. I enjoyed every minute of it!!!

We came here for lunch after tasting their Hida beef at the Saturday market, seems to be popular with the locals. There's a butcher out the front. You can cook your own beef or for something different, get the one that cooks on the magnolia leaf. Lunch sets were good value. Make sure you try the A5 grade beef cubes!

They serve very nice hida beef. Compared to other restaurants I've been to at Takayama, this is definitely my favourite!
