Arrived at our hotel in the evening and found this TA highly rated restaurant close to the Okayama Koraku hotel (0.mi.), lucky us. We shared the Set "Nagomi" dinner (25,000 yen) and the Wagu beef. Although the latter was a little on the tough side, it didn't merit reducing my rating as everything else was excellent. On recalling our trip,... More

The meal was fabulous and the staff great. Sitting watching this kitchen operate and Hom they interact with their regular clients is a show in itself. We has the set course meal, without beef, and it was more than we needed. Although we ate it all. This is a great find and I would recommend it. Wine by the glass... More

Good option for a very good quality 6-course meal. Though appetizer and salad are really European, still very tasteful and good

The food was just perfect at Teppan Ku-Ya! We had the set menu, and we loved every dish - and the green tea ice cream in desert was the best!

Okayama is maybe a pit stop for many tourists that are either on the way South or North! So it was with surprise we found a place with such nice reviews. After trying it out I can only advice to leave the bentonite boxes and go to this place! The staff is fantastic! I only wish customer service in Europe... More

We were staying in Okayama for 2 nights and spent both of our evenings in this amazing place. The atmosphere is relaxed with friendly staff and an open kitchen, where the chef and his staff can be watched while they are dashing their guests with their amazing food. We ordered both times the set menu (3500 Yen for a 6... More
