The restaurant itself is easy to locate as it's in Dotonburi area. With google map, it would be easy to find. The staff are very friendly and they all speak good english. Our waitress, Miyuki, was extremely friendly and she also taught us how to cook it well. I dont understand how other bad reviews saying about the bad service.... More

went for a lunch menu and it was really good - unforgettable experience the beef melts in your mouth and the staff will explain the different portion of beef to you if you are unsure. English friendly The garlic rice was beyond words! It was my last meal in osaka but will never forget the experience.

Came on friend's recommendation. Recommend booking if coming for dinner. Only a small restaurant. You pick your choice of meat. Cook on BBQ grill yourself. You taste the difference with the different cuts of beef. Nice but not exceptional. Service was friendly but no different to most Japanese restaurants.

After seeing raving reviews on TripAdvisor my husband and I decided to give this a go, but unfortunately this did not live up to the hype. 1) We got the most expensive option thinking that this would be the best meat we could find it Japan. As you can see from the pictures, the meat is incredibly fatty, all the... More

Restaurant was nice enough to give us a free birthday cake! Portions of the beef we ordered was small, but after the garlic right, beef sushi (excellent!), it was filling. Not bad experience but pale in comparison to A5 grade Kobe beef we ate 2 days later.

Had a delicious meal and received the best service in Osaka. The staff were incredibly friendly and professional and Yuki ( branch manager) went as far as helping us flag a cab on the street on our way home. Highly recommended!!!

Our first dinner in Osaka and we ordered the most expensive meat platter but to our disappointment, the meat quality was average and some pieces were actually very chewy without much beef taste. Compared to other yakiniku experiences we had in Japan including Nakahara in Tokyo, this was very average and there are even restaurants in Hong Kong that can... More

We stumbled into one of the locations by luck and they happened to be full, however, they called their other location across the river and they made a spot for us. They even had someone from the first location walk with us to guide us to the second. The food was to die for! The meat was amazing I can't... More

I booked a table for 2 one week before I arrived Osaka. If you love grilled beef, this is the place I highly recommend to visit. I booked for two nights to ensure we have had tasted the premium Matsusaka beef in Osaka. Branch manager Takeo Karatsuji San was very friendly and speak good English, so easy to communicate when...
