Incredible!

We phoned and booked before going to Japan (recommended) based off Trip Advisor reviews. I am happy to add another positive review! Even though we were aware of the high price we were still hesitant when we arrived. Fortunately we ended up biting the bullet and ordering the most expensive dish... read more

...it felt rushed and not as good as it should be. For the price you pay I expected more. The appetizers are nothing special. Generic smoked salmon or roast beef are two of the four options. The beef really does not need all the extra stuff they serve you. I could especially been without the tofu and the grey gelatinous... More

Today, July 19,2015, I have made reservation at 2pm for 8 adults and 2 babies, we arrived at 1.55, and we handled by the lady receptionist, middle age japanese, and she was very unfriendly when she saw us.

Decided to treat ourselves to some Kobe beef whilst in a recent Japan tour and were definitely not disappointed with this restaurant. We ate at lunchtime and there was a reasonable deal on. Around 5000 yen for 150g beef with lots of accompaniments. Everything is cooked in from of you, with lots of recommendations from the chef on what goes... More

The restaurant needs reservation. The price is on high side but the chef will cook in front of you after showing you your piece of Kobe beef. The beef was good but they only served white rice, a pity not the fried rice with beef gravy.

Visited on our last day in Japan (as a side trip from Osaka). The restaurant is very friendly, if a little awkward to locate in the Shin-Kobe complex. All cooking is on the hot plate in front of the customer and the chef prepares the meat and veg perfectly, before advising on the correct accompanying condiments for each cooked cut.... More

Great quality beef, marbling is evenly distributed throughout. English menu is available and chef explains the different cuts of meat (my wife and I chose the top two premium cuts). Chef cooks it right in front of you teppanyaki style and offers advice on ways to "eat" it (with either just dipping in salt, pepper, mustard or soy sauce). It's... More

1) Strict timekeeping by the waitress means one gets in only at the appointed time and not 10 minutes before like what we tried to do 2) Reservations, please. It is by far the most popular restaurant (of a total exceeding 15) in the building complex. Regularly packed. You may call or book online at their website 3) Good cuts... More

Kobe beef is incredible. Not even really like beef but absolutely melt in the mouth delicious heaven and this restaurant really put it at its best. It was very expensive but at around 800€ a kg in France, I wasn't shocked by the price here and it was definitely worth the money! We particularly enjoyed the teppinyaki aspect of this... More
