An amaaazing meal! The set meal was perfect!! We had tuna tartar & cooked salmon w/ cheese for appetizers, then hot scrumptious sweet potatoe soup, then a salad. For dinner we had the best sirloin & filet w/ fried garlic on top! And you can get a bottle of wine for less than $50!! Love it...

Me and my friend went to this restaurant today, primarily to see if the hype around this place was justified (Rated No. 1 at TripAdvisor). We ordered the "special menu" which main course consists of two different cuts of the Wagyu (kobe) Meat. It was priced at 13700 Yen. The meat was cooked to perfection All courses were nicely presented... More

YES, it so lives up to the hype and the steak set menu for 7,000 yen is a bargain! Everyone was so nice. It is very casual and you sit at a bar infront of the kitchen area. The place is not fancy but the food is!

This place is amazing. The food, the service, the ambiance all were just incredible. I must admit I was a bit hesitant being that it's in some back alley away from all the hustle and bustle of Kyoto but it was well worth it. The staff was very helpful. At one point I called in and had the restaurant staff... More

Really really amazing beef. Great to sit at the bar and watch it all, good service and the best English speaking staff we found in 10 days in Japan. (Whilst we would love to speak Japanese we don't so was nice to speak to someone who could speak to us!) We have been to some top end London restaurants and... More

The restaurant is tucked away off the beaten track and just looks like another house in the street. Inside it is similarly understated. But the food was amazing. We all agreed we had never eaten such nice steak. My husband has celiacs but they had no problem catering for his requirements aswell. Also, we had about 6 other courses and... More

This is a small, hard to find beef restaurant serving multiple 'Set menus' or varying price, and also individual dishes. Prices of the Sets range between 60,000 and 140,000 yen per person. Small, and cosy, this restaurant is a counter that overlooks the chefs cooking varying types of beef. It is pricey, though the beef quality is amazing, and their... More
