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

It is not that easy to find, if you take the entrance from Shin-Kobe side. Just ask your way through! We have made a reservation last week, and were even a little bit early at that place. Nevertheless, we had to wait to be seated and it took ages, although the restaurant was nearly empty... To be clear. This is... More

We were staying in Kyoto and came to Kobe for dinner one evening hoping to go to the 'best place to have Kobe beef in Kobe'. We didn't mind spending the money on getting the best experience, but this was a serious disappointment! Firstly, even though we booked weeks in advance, they couldn't locate the booking. The lady on reception... More

Well, this was not what we expected. When we arrived at the restaurant, we were told there is 1 Kobe beef menu available and we ordered it right away. After we wanted to order the rest of the menu the smiling cook told us he just sold the beef to someone else and that there is no more remaining. So... More

The art of preparing the meat is amazing! Every piece is perfectly cut and prepared. The Chef showed us the ways of eating it: with garlic (fried in front of us), with salt, with pepper and with sauce soy. The meat tastes buttery and tender,it just melts in the mouth and you can feel a fine flavour that we never... More

The food was great. The steak was absolutely delicious However, the meal was ruined when they billed me for something that they shouldn't have. the waitress lied to me when I asked if garlic rice was included in the price of the set. She said yes it was but they wouldn't take it off my bill. First time to get... More

Located just off the Shin-Kobe station which is about a 5minute walk. It's exact location is actually next to the ANA Crowne Plaza Hotel on the 3rd Floor. Service was excellent from the reception to the wait staff to our chef who was funny and attentive. If you are from the US the way they cook and serve the food... More
