“Excellent all around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013 via mobile

Stayed at Grand Hyatt and went here for dinner. Amazing. I had a F1 premium beef and a crab salad. I would highly recommend the beef. So tender juicy, soft and marble.. Cooked to perfection right in front of me. This is probably the best beef i've ever had. The service is impeccable which you can say about every restaurant in Tokyo. I was seated at the bar and the chef was cooking right in front of me. When he was done he said i'm finished, nodded and left. At the end of the dinner they served me the toothpicks, water, tea and chocolates. Great experience highly recommended.

“Teppanyaki paradise...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

For some reason the restaurant is a bit difficult to find... U need to take an elevator to the 6th floor of Grand Hyatt and then take the stairs down. But the minor irritant aside... Once you are at the restaurant it is just perfection… the ambiance, service and of course the food.

You are seated at the grilling counter as you watch the chef whip up the delicious food in front of your eyes. The cuisine is all about enhancing the flavors of fresh ingredients with minimal seasoning and light grilling.

We had a late reservation – at 9pm… by then very few seats were occupied… so it felt very personal and intimate. We opted for ala carte instead of the 3 elaborate set course menu options.

They started us off with some flat bread served with a mixture of capsicum and onions. For appetizers we ordered a crab taragon with mushrooms and truffles (the most succulent and chunky crab leg I have ever had... Simply amazing!). This was followed by grilled vegetables - red capsicum, red onions and asparagus... Served with some miso dipping sauce (which is yummy, but all the vegetables really needed was to be dipped in a bit of salt). Then followed our 120gms kobe tenderloin steaks, medium rare... Served with some grilled eggplant and yam (first time I have seen hubby wallop off his veggies). The steak was cut into bite sizes, so that it could be eaten easily with chopsticks. Again, it did not need the sesame dipping sauce... Each bite was HEAVENLY! The garlic fried rice with asparagus and beef was a bit too garlicy for me… but the hubby polished it off, so it depends on personal taste I guess. And to round it off... A chocolate souffle, which was also heated to rise on the grill… served in the comfortable lounge.

Eye wateringly expensive... but worth it.

“A bit pricey but nice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2012 via mobile

Great meal and great ambience. Staffs are incredibly friendly. I had lunch here few times and found it very satisfying every time. I am not a big fan of the garlic rice that comes with the course but except that everything is very very good.

“The best beef I have ever had!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2012

Enjoyed my first (but hopefully not last) Kobe beef at Keyakizaka in June. It was served teppanyaki style, cooked to perfection with great quality vegetables, a divine miso paste sauce and a mild tomato sauce. The private cook was was so kind, he really took the time to talk with use about the ingredients and the food. When I had some difficulties deciding which wine to choose, our waiter brought me a sample of each wine served by the glass. A fabolous Châteauneuf du Pape Château de Beaucastel won the tasting and turned out to be a great match for the beef.
After the beef course, which was served by the teppanyaki stove, we were shown to a calm lounge area for dessert. The Yuzu sherbet with Champagne was a great ending to an absolutely amazing gastronomy experience. One of my most expensive meals yet, but worth every yen!
