Ordered the Kobe steak.The chef showed us the steak before cooking and help us take pictures before cooking it. He was very friendly and taught us how to eat the steak properly. Total cost was about $160-180 per person for the set Lunch course which includes a salad, a drink, dessert and the main course. Dinner would be more expensive... More

On entering the restaurant, we were politely welcomed by the staff and they continued to provide impeccable service. We sat infront of the iron hot plate and ordered the premium kobe beef sirloin and moriya beef rump lunch sets. Both were extremely delicious with either a bit of salt or the house miso sauce. The accompanying vegetables were also well... More

Wow. What a wonderful lunch! Each of us had the premium 150g Kobe beef sirloin teppanyaki set lunch which came with rice (or bread) and salad. Chef was highly skilled. It helped he spoke English to walk us through the cooking and how best to enjoy it. First slice, with a dash of salt to be able to enjoy the... More

I guess we had to try some Kobe beef in Kobe. We ordered a Kobe beef set and a wagyu rump set. They showed us the beef before it was cooked - it was gorgeous. We were told to first try it plain, then with salt, salt and pepper, and garlic flakes. The flavour was out of the world. The... More

It took us almost an hour to find the way from Namba to Kobe area as this is the first time we go there by JR. But it is still very worthwhile. We are meat lover and definitely enjoy very much the Kobe beef. The texture, the taste and the colour is of the top notch. We also try one... More

It's not cheap, but why cut corners trying the best beef in the world at its source? We turned up without reservations but still got a seat at the hibachi grill counter for one of the best culinary experiences of our trip to Japan. The fried garlic disks nearly stole the show, and the meat was out of this world.... More

Made a reservation from their website. It went really well with no problem. I took lunch set menu and make a short trip from Osaka to Kobe for lunch. Everything was excellent. Whole meal experience (from service to taste of meat) Chief preparing food in front of you. Good opportunity for taking some photo.

What an amazing place! We tried both kobe and the moriya special beef, you can taste the difference kobe beef is richer in flavour but both melt in your mouth! Wonderful staff, very friendly and helpful!
