“Good priced, excellent Matsuzaka Yakiniku buffet”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

It is one of the most inexpensive /by Tokyo standards/, and the most high quality, largest selection, buffet you can find in Tokyo. The taste, quality of meet is so superb, that you ALWAYS must to make reservation in advance. Place is always crowded, which is a great sign. There are several option you can choose from. Fantastic place

“The best japanese beef”
Reviewed February 16, 2014 via mobile

Highly recommended for matsuzaka beef. The beef is melted in your mouth. Make a reservation in advance, because it's always full for dinner.

“matsuzaka beef galore!!”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

We visited this restaurant for Dec. 31 lunch. We wanted dinner but it was fully booked. Good thing that the hotel was able to make a reservation for us.
We arrived 10 minutes earlier than our reservation time and really had to wait for the exact time to be seated.
Ordered the Matsuzaka Grill assortment and was not disappointed. We even ordered a second round as we couldn't get enough from the first order.
The service was bit slow probably because of the volume of customers but left very satisfied with our meal.

“Tried the 10k all-you-can-eat option. Wasn't disappointed.”
Reviewed December 22, 2013

Normally, when people think about all you can eat, the image of cheap meat comes to mind. However, in Rokkasen, it's all you can eat DELICIOUS MEAT OMNOMNOM. We tried the 2nd option since we were broke from the shopping spree. It felt like orgasm. Continuously since it's all you can eat. I'm pretty sure we left the place 10 pounds heavier. Will come back again once I make sure I'm not at risk for a heart attack.

However do be aware that there is a 90 min timer on the all you can eat. You should also make reservations before hand as the place is quite popular.
