I found this restaurant reading TA reviews. The restaurant is small but perfect for 2 or more people. The owner is nice and they arrange the menu just for me because I am vegetarian. The waiters were nice and helpful. They also have English menu. The wine selection is very good but the sake is the best. It's open from... More

We followed the reviews we read here and still were amazed to find out that they were all true and accurate. The 3rd menu set for 2 people was perfect and just enough food although we were hungry. The food was delicious and the service was impeccable.

Fantastic atmosphere, local and trendy. Lovely team working there who clearly love the place. The food was amazing, the wagyu beef was stunning no need to add any flavour just the naturally grilled taste. Seafood salad was light and tangy. Finished off with a tasty garlic fried rice! Next time I'm back I know where I'm eating again!

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
