Excellent food well worth the price. The standard menu offers a multicourse meal including roast, brisket, steak or sirloin; as well as an appetiser of thinly sliced chicken and a dessert of your choice. Got a fine selection of wine to go with the meat,...More

Wow.. Just wow. Expensive? Definitely, but well worth the money if you wanna taste something amazing. I got the Wagyu sandwich and it honestly blew me away. Not a huge serving so you will have to savour every bite. Mmmmm!

Just got a wagyu sando to go. For 5.000 yens. Meat was tender. Condiments were ok. Nothing to write hom about though. I don't think Japanese people would that but in any other settings, I would have seriously doubted what we were served was indeed...More

We went for the steak of course but ended up ordering some salad and salmon entree as well. Everything was incredible. I could not believe how good a simple salad or salmon sashimi could be. Steak was of course great. We had the one with...More

This unassuming steakhouse featuring the best of local beef is a real gem. While off the menu is available, they have a variety of fixed price menus that offer a great deal of food for the price. This is not a cheap place, but still...More

Simply the best fillet I have ever had. Combined with soy, soy/vinegar and miso for dipping options, the steak texture and flavour were sublime. I almost wished it could have been cut in smaller pieces to make the experience last longer. The process of using...More

We absolutely loved this restaurant! Throughout our time in Japan we dined in several fine steakhouses and this was one of the best. Loved sitting at the counter and watching the chefs cook the wagyu. We ordered the set menu with two different types of...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
