Restaurant with Butcher Shopfront

I suppose you can't go wrong with a restaurant with a butcher shopfront with a wall filled with award frames. Black cow-Hida Beef galore!! Absolutely worth the experience after ravishing meats of Kobe, Ohmi and Matsusaka from Osaka/Kyoto. Different palate and finishing taste to each meat cuts... read more

Our first introduction to Hida Beef, be sure to ask for an English menu and read it thoroughly. We learned a lot about the their items, and there are a lot of possible combinations we could have ordered. Typical of lots of Japanese restaurants, you have the option to have multiple grades of beef and different cuts. You can do... More

Love the beef here. We heard a lot about this restaurant from our friends and internet and it don’t let us down. However in holiday season, the queue could be very long. We are lucky, we reached Takayama around 5 pm and we went straight to the restaurant, we wait for only 20 minutes. When we leave the restaurant, we... More

Why? Because the owner also owns the beef shop next to the restaurant. The butcher shows off some of his awards in the shop and specialises in Hida beef. So why eat any other meat except Hida beef? You will be rewarded with the tender, fragrant meat. Grilling is recommended and, of course, it is to be done medium rare... More

This restaurant is just 10 mins walk from Takayama train station. We had Sukiyaki on a very cold evening, and ordered their Hida Beef. The beef slices came in slices, pinkish red in colour, very fresh looking, and nicely marbled. The restaurant staff offered to help us with the cooking. She first put in the butter, and then the beef... More

We got there at 16.30 and were given a table straight away - how lucky! Service was normal and friendly. We had the grill and order mostly the premium Hida Beef - just the steaks for grill....no tongue etc. Somehow, there was no buzz to the Hida beef here, unlike the beef we had in 2 other restaurants in Takayama...

Limited choices if you are not a beef eater. The pork and chicken portions were small and tasted normal. However, the Hida beef is well marbled. We had barbecue and the beef was tender. There is also sukiyaki which we did not try. But, it comes with more vegetables.

specialises in Hida beef any which way YOU want to cook it yourself -a recessed gas driven charcol grill is fitted into the middle of each table. (for grilled meat); or they will bring a portable gas cooker to the table if you want to cook and eat shabushabu style. A very large restaurant that gets quite smelly with all... More
