The food was great.

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

There are wonderful lunch specials that include the kobe steak, salad, soup, vegetables, ricea, coffee and shebert. The cooking is done on teppan... More

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...

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
