I went before opening time and there was already a queue. Food was served quickly and it's good to opt for a counter seat so you can see your meal being prepared. I asked the staff if they recommend a steak, sandwich or rice bowl...More

My boyfriend and I went to Hafuu Honten in May 2018 and had a so-so experience. He ordered the regular set meal, and I got the Hafuu set meal (slightly less meat but perfectly reasonable in size). The meat was very very good (my b/f...More

I read about Hafuu prior to arriving in Japan and booked a reservation for our first night in Kyoto. We had such a wonderful evening that we booked another reservation for the 2nd night. The Wagyu filet was divine. It is simply grilled to perfection...More

We had 2 different dinner set menus and both were excellent. Appetisers and soup were all amazing. We had prime rib and beef katsu which were both perfectly done. Garlic rice was the best we've tasted ever. Highly recommend.

We first discovered Hafuu Honten in 2014 on our quest for kobe beef. It was an exceptional meal and we have made a point to go out of our way to go back there each time we’ve been to Japan (2015, 2018). We’ve had kobe...More

They were helpful at fitting us in for a last minute dinner reservation. Intimate setting, seats are at the bar with an open kitchen. We opted for the 10,000 yen set menu with the filet rather than sirloin. The main course was memorably delicious. Very...More

We opted for the wagyu sirloin set course and it was wonderful from start to finish- all beautifully presented and tasty dishes. The beef was delicious, tender and well-cooked and the service we received was exceptional. All staff were welcoming, friendly and attentive. Can not...More

I ordered the special dinner course (13000¥) so I can try both Wagyu sirloin ( 200g )and filet (100g ). Both are so tender and juicy but I favor the sirloin. We are from Texas and this is far more superior than any steak I’ve...More

City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its
blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered
shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street
bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to
peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home
goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center
is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and
clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of
