It was the day before we left Japan so we decided to splurge and go for the special selection sirloin kobe beef steak. It was pretty pricey, but it tasted sooo good! The chef cooks everything in front of you on a hot plate and he tells you how to eat and what sauces to try. As with all of... More

Only10 minutes walk from the train station to this well known steakhouse for lunch, this is a perfect way to be introduced to the marvel of fabled, marbled goodness that is Japanese beef, especially for only $A50.00. This gets you a 130 gram serve along with soup, salad and miso. From several experiences the "Kobe" method of cooking seems to... More

I visit Japan annually and always head to Kobe at least twice to visit here. By far the best Kobe beef I have head. I have visited other restaurants but not nearly the quality or service. I agree to go at lunch when the prices are cheaper but truly perfect if you want to have Kobe beef prepared properly.

Same comments from all the review, it is value for money. Two things I noted, one is the chef is friendly, the waitress need to improve. Try to have lunch there, it is much cheaper. The lunch set is decent n you have personal chef attention. I personally believe it is 3.5 star but because the price is decent, I... More

I ordered the Tokusen (Specially selected Kobe sirloin) and asked the chef for Omakase (cook the beef to his preference) The raw beef was displayed on a wooden plate, so that you can witness the beauty of the densely-marbled kobe beef. Chef Sasaki served the beef in three different servings. The first serving was about a hundred grams of fatty... More

We were staying one night at the ANA Crown Plaza hotel on Christmas night and wanted to eat at the teppanyaki place in the hotel but they were fully booked. The hostess recommended this place and we loved it. Nice but not fussy decor and the staff were all friendly and spoke English very well. Our Chef recommended the best... More

Everything was just amazing. I had heard about Kobe beef many times in my life but could not afford it since I had no occasion to go to Japan. The meat is dealing with perfection, so does the cook. We all loved it, it is really amazing to see the different taste of the various part of the beef. I... More

Every time my family and I stay in Osaka, we always make it a point to visit Kobe, not just for the Nunobiki Herb Garden & Ropeway and many other sights but for the food. Having had Kobe beef at Wakkoqu made me never want to eat anything less than the quality served at this restaurant. The prices are really... More

We were on our way to Hiroshima from Kyoto and planned our stop to try out authentic Kobe beef in Kobe. We found Wakkoqu on TripAdvisor, as well as their website and the English menu was most helpful. We had the special selected Kobe beef sets, one Sirloin and one Tenderloin which comes with entree, salad, a choice of rice... More
