Return visit to this place with another couple and we each ordered the 5400-yen beef set. The meal was excellent as always, from start to finish. Service was very good, with the waitresses coming over to cook the food for you, or if you preset, you can also DIY.

Went there 2009, and I still remember their delicious Shabu Shabu with Kobe beef, a Japanese fondue. Service and staff are very polite as you know it from Japan.

This shabu-shabu (and sukiyaki) restaurant was definitely the best place I have ever eaten shabu-shabu. My boyfriend and I had tried the shabu-shabu here on a date, buying the lowest quality wagyu beef they had. We bought extra meat too, as the meat originally provided is actually not enough for two people. The meat was so tender and delicious when... More

I've been here several times during my staying in Tokyo for business. I had always business dinners. The place is really nice, traditional but with modern flair. Nice and professional service with all ladies well prepared and waring Kimonos. The specialty here is shabu-shabu. I came here about 10 times and every time I was really satisfied. Good value for...

Had dinner here the week of 10-9-16, in Shinjuku. Food was overpriced and staff wasn't the most friendlinest--have had better. It was an expensive dinner. To preserve our cash, I decided to use one of my credit cards. The transaction went thru with no problems and billed to my account. I used this card only once at this restaurant in... More

The restaurant is not easy to find even with mobile map as you have to take an elevator by the side of the shop on ground floor to reach the restaurant. We didn't have any reservation but was early enough to get a table (need to finish our dinner within 2hrs which was acceptable to us). We had the sukiyaki... More

The location is a bit hard to find. We are very lucky with the help from some oversea students to find it at the end. Even better we get in without any reservation. The restaurant is decorated very well traditionally. They do offer a very extensive menu and you can choose the set or a la carte menu. We choose... More

I loved this restaurant. From the decor to service to the food, everything was perfect. There is a range of prices for the quality of meat you can order - since this was a splurge I ordered the matsuzaka beef - the highest quality and the marbling was beautiful! I think it was around 11,000 yen, and worth every penny.... More
