They offfer good quality meat in japanese style tables. They've got different separeted rooms which keeps the environment quite and relaxed. A good place to taste the Hida beef. The price is according to the quality of the meat.

Expect like 30 min waiting. We ordered A5 Hida beef big dish and I think it's just enough quantity for two. The service is quick and they have menus is Englidh. That cost us more than 5,000¥ so from my perspective is not that cheap.

There was a 40 minute wait (expected) for this restaurant. We had sirloin as recommended by some previous reviewers and a plate of vegetables. The food was good, but came in very small portions (unlike misleading photos). When we ordered a second plate the server forgot to put in the order. In general, there was not enough staff and they...

Plenty of good places to eat in Takayama, this is no exception. Food, especially the beef or course, was great, service friendly and helpful for non english speakers. This place seemed to be open later than many of the other palces in town that close very early -- at least this was the case the night we ate there.

The place is quite big and busy, we had to wait quite a bit before getting a table, but they are quite well organised. We order a mix plate of differet meat and vegetable to grill. The meat is quite good, obviously if you choose the plate with different cuts you will get to taste the difference. Food and service... More

I can't overemphasize how great the beef here was. Get the sirloin. It's not the most expensive so you might think it's not the best, but we tried several of the beef dishes and this was absolutely the best. It arrives in thin, raw, slices and you cook it yourself on a propane burner in the middle of the table.... More

Excellent beef, good service, nice place. Some of the Takayama restaurants disappoint, this one doesn't.

Ajikuratengoku serves good quality of Hida Beef. Reservation is needed and the queue is very long. Fortunately, our hotel was very close to the restaurant, so we put our name on the list and waited in the hotel.
