The restaurant is small and friendly, staff are very kind and attentive. I had several types of steak and I enjoyed each and everyone. It has been a while since I had a good piece of meat 🍖 🥩 🍖

Love the Matsuzaka beef, melt in your mouth goodness. The beef croquette downstairs are superb as well. One is never enough! Easy to find location with the help of Google map. Worth coming to this quaint area slightly away from Tokyo main shopping area.
