The beef was so good I wanna cry

A typhoon was coming that day so basically the restaurants was only half full...anyway the food was so so so good and the prices are very reasonable . Ate different parts of the Hida beef and they were all so amazing. I will go back to Takayama just for this!

This was an excellent place to try this type of food (and the beef) without breaking the bank. 4 of us shared a platter and got 4 sets with (salad, rice and dessert), and it was ample food. The ice-cream dessert was delicious, as was everything else. Nice cold beers too!

We had a great meal at this place. We went early around 5pm so didn't have to queue. We got the 8500 set of beef which has a few vegetables for 2-3 people and also a super premium sirloin steak just to try it and a kimchi looking appetiser. I actually preferred the premium as opposed to the super premium... More

Loved the whole BBQ (yakiniku) experience. The beef and vegetables went well together, but start the vegetables first. The beef was so beautiful and tender and it was all easy to cook.

Takayama = hida beef. Go to this restaurant and order some beef to prepare yourself. Prepare yourself to have goodgasms! We ate there twice in two days and it was just utterly ridiculous how wonderful it was. Now, back in Denmark, we have only our memories, which we plan on trying to recreate. The people are nice and the food... More

Just had dinner here at 8 pm. It was down the road from where we were staying and we wanted to try some Hida beef. You can't miss this place, quite big and well lit on the same street as the JR Takayama station. Walked in and requested a table for 3. The waiter informed us that last order was... More

We visited at the start of April and arrived shortly after 6pm and got a table straight away. We went for a beef set and it was fun working out how to best cook it on the hot plate. The staff could have been a little more attentive and available answer questions but we soon worked out what to do... More
