“Service lacking, beef so so”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2013 via mobile

Service is a bit lacking. Definitely not organized at the front of the house, confusion in seating even though had reservation. It's a busy place but honestly how long does it take to bring out a plate of raw meat.

Ordered the precious rib eye at 890¥ I guess it's cheap but the marbling does not look like the picture in the menu, am I eating a different breed of cow?

Thinly sliced chuck eye roll center shoulder ¥1290 and oz tongue with salt and Japanese leek ¥1190

Overall a bit dissapointing, especially made multiple attempts to get a seat. Won't be back.

“Great Food, Good Value, Open Late”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

Taijuen has several locations in Shinjuku, Nakano and other parts of Tokyo. Very good yaki niku (Korean-style BBQ) and very good value for money. Always a reliable place to take visitors or just to have a nice dinner with friends. Not expensive and with the all-you-can-drink system, everyone can get nicely inebriated for only ¥1,500!!! Open from lunch to late so any time is a good time here.
