This restaurant is a great value. It is totally worth splurging on the meal. My daughter and I had the filet and the sirloin, both were phenomenal. They melted in our mouths, it was the best beef we've ever eaten. We are both world travelers and have eaten in many places. The restaurant was small and cozy and made us... More

Just had a fantastic meal at Hafuu and after years of researching restaurants on "trip" thought I should make my first post. My wife and I have been in Japan for just under a week and having tried most of the local cuisine, "mainly great but a few challenging moments!", I was in real need of Asian food with quite... More

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!
