Our party of five was made to feel comfortable from the moment we walked into the restaurant until the time we left. This is a restaurant that knows how to treat its guests. We ordered set menus and each item was perfectly prepared and tasty. Our chef was fun to watch and our meals were cooked to each individual's taste.... More

This restaurant deserves a special praise, because it delivers food of the highest quality, at a reasonable price, with an extremely high level of service. You are seated around a table with its own "cooking area" and the chef - there is one dedicated to each table - lets you choose the types of meat and wine for your dinner,... More

This place is not only a restaurant: it is a fully new food experience. We traveled from Tokyo to Kobe only for the restaurant and the well-known Kobe beef, and it was worth it. we had the worries about the price that we could find online (truly about 100€/p.), because we wondered from a long time if we could spend...

Probably the best meal of the year. Certainly one of the best beefs I have ever had. You can find the place just across the Shin-Kobe station. In the Oriental Garden Mall. We went for the lunchdeal and a glass of merlot. ~¥7000 each

We're 6 and we order 750 gram tenderloin and 750 sirloin. While we enjoy the appetizer, salad, soup and wine, the chef grill the meat very slowly and detail with a low heat, they serve us one by one in teppan table. Taste like heaven, it's melt in our mouth ! This restaurant is the good place to enjoy high... More

We were there for lunch and chose a set menu, which is a lot cheaper than the prices in the evening. The chef was really funny and knew what he was doing. The meat was presented and cooked before our eyes. Yes, it is expensive, but worth the experience!

You have to approach this as an Experience from your first look at the genuine Kobe stamp on your portion of beef through to that last delicious mouthful. We opted for the 250g sirloin set dinner for JPY13,800 each which included a smoked salmon appetiser, vegetables, bread or rice, coffee and of course that star of the show the beef.... More
