Must try

We went to this restaurant after reading the review at Trip Advisor. The Hida Beef was indeed very good, and better than those served in dinner provided by our hotel. We had the BBQ beef combo (around 9k yen) and the hidataka beer. The beef as described by all reviewers was very soft and very tasty... read more

My partner is an avid meat eater and I'm not so, therefore she was much more excited about the Hida Beef BBQ experience than I was. Nonetheless we both came out of Ajikura satisfied and loving the experience we had just had. This restaurant is not far from the Takayama JR station and is very easy to find. They have... More

We had done some searching online to try and find a suggested place to eat.... preferably with an English menu. Our hotel suggested this spot and I dream about this meal now often and wish it were not so far away to go back! We picked one of the set meat platters, some rice and I think another appetizer. Man,... More

We tried to book the restaurant 2 weeks before our visit on Christmas day but was informed that they were fully booked. So we arrived at the restaurant 15 minutes they were opened at 5pm and we managed to get seats. The food was excellent! It was reasonably priced, we spent about $200 for the 5 of us. The service...

From the moment you come, you will see the meats are showcased like a butcher shops. For a5 beef quality the price is hard to beat. We have to wait for 1.5 hour to get seated and it is worth every minutes we wait. We have eaten many types of wagyu including at matsuzaka M in osaka and here you... More

Beef and seafood were good, but take care if you have any msg sensitivity or are watching sodium intake. Not sure if msg in sauces or on the platters of meat but had reaction later. Too much use of msg in Japan; doubling dose of good probiotic helps, but sometimes swelling. headache, thirst result, making you regret your meal.

We followed the trail of recommendations to this place (tip - come early! We arrived just after six only to wait for about an hour before we could be sited). We started with the set of about 4000 yen and followed up with additional side dishes. The Hida beef was excellent here, with sufficient marbling to have the 'melt-in-your-mouth' sensation.... More
