Kitchen Hida is a good stake house. It was my first time to taste Hida Wagyu beef, and therefore I carefully read TripAdvisor in advance and chose this restaurant. But because my expectation was so big that I was somewhat disappointed. The stake was perfectly OK, but thinking of the price it is still insufficient.

I ordered a A3/A4 sirloin steak of 150g set that went with a drink and fresh green salad (about 5180 yen). It was very nicely done though about 1/3 of the steak was fat. The taste of the beef was strong and unique (imagine that the steak itself tastes like stewed oxtail). The fried onion was very delicious. The gnocci... More

Pre-booked - knew it was going to be good and expensive. It turned out that way. But no complaint because it's probably one of the best Japanese beef joints around. I shared 450g of A5 sirloin with my daughter. My wife had 150g of the A5 fillet.Son had the beef stroganoff. We needed more and ordered another woof of fillet... More

Nice place specialized in hida beef dishes! The meat is excellent, maybe as good as a nice Kobe beef. The drink selection is just average: some good wines but just a few beers and one sake! While the beefs are great, the sides dishes included in the sets are just okay. Nice experience, recommended!

We decided on this place seeing quite a number of positive reviews, and we enjoyed the experience. Two of us ordered the grade 5 beef set for two, which was 150g beef fillet and 150g sirloin steak and it was good. The set was supposed came with soup, salad, rice/bread, tea and dessert. We didn't have high expectations for anything... More

We walked in without a reservation and managed to immediately get a table. We had the premium Hida beef steaks which were good, which is what we expected from Kitchen Hida. The house wine on offer was not really drinkable though. Service was prompt and friendly. Overall a satisfactory meal.

Pretty ordinary looking place. Like a 60's hamburger joint. Service was good and the steak probably was as well, but it felt like we were eating a huge slab of foie gras, only with more fat. I prefer US Prime beef, but we had to try it. We would have preferered french fries to a bowl of rice with our... More

The price was not cheap, but the A4 quality Hide beef sirloin just melted in the mouth. They managed to accommodate a large party at short notice, so kudos for that.

Read about Hida beef and this seemed to be the place to go in Takayama. Their beef is categorised into 5 grades, and only grade 3 to 5 qualify to be Hida beef. Grade 1 and 2 are not considered to be good enough. It wasn't too difficult to find following the GPS, and there are 2 or 3 parking... More
