Best BBQ beef!

We love Japanese BBQ beef and having read about this restaurant decided that we had to try it. We had lunch here and for 6 of us, 3 adults, 2 teens and a 8yo decided to order 2 of the ¥8500 Hida beef set, and a serving each of the ox diaphragm and the ox tongue. We over ordered, but... read more

Rushed to the shop on arriving at Takayama Station (its located within a 5 minute walk to the right on leaving the station) at around 935pm but was told it was closed for unknown reasons (despite the sign and website saying they closed at 10pm). Left disappointed given the good reviews Came back the next day and got seated fairly... More

We came here at 5pm, the restaurant just open for their dinner session but inside is already almost full, lucky we got seated for two. The ambience in the restaurant is soothing and cozy light color setting, very clean. We sampled a few differrent cuts of Hida beef from the menu for our barbecue, really tasty, soft and very tender.... More

I am no expert when it comes to premium food but I have tried Kobe A511 and I must say this Hida beef matched up. The service ambience and price are excellent!! I want to revisit it again if given a chance.

Chose to eat here based on the reviews and close proximity to our hotel. We were not disappointed! Upon arrival were told we would have about an hour wait (as seen in other reviews) but decided to stick it out! Was probably closer to 30-40 minute wait, which wasn't too bad. Was a great experience marinating and cooking the beef... More

We were recommended by the hotel staff to have a beef here which is next to our hotel. The beef is so good that it melts in your mouth. The liver is the must try here.

I have been to Ajikura more than 5 times because it is one of the best places you can taste the 5th-grade Hida beef. I am a high school teacher and Takayama city attracts many high school excursions from the neighboring prefectures including Toyama, where you can visit Takayama in 2 hours. I have chaperoned entire 300 students of 12... More

We came here due to the TripAdvisor reviews. When we got out of the car the smell was delicious from the BBQs. On arrival at 6.45pm on a Sunday, we were told it was an hour wait. We decided to wait because of the smell. The service and the food was very good. You have a choice of a range... More

Had a great dinner here. Food was exceptional, service was smooth and the friendly locals in the next table competed the scene.
