We hadn't tried Wagyu before so tried this place and loved it. You can choose form several grades and size of cut and choose either soup or DIY BBQ (Yakiniku) at your table. Also an extensive menu with pork, seafood etc so has something for everyone. We did the BBQ, where the raw meat is served in bite size strips for quick and easy BBQ, so it is not just a big steak on your plate, which is good as each mouthful is fresh. Despite not being large steaks, very filling eating slowly this way. Sirloin is more fatty than the tenderloin, both are amazingly tender.

The food of Japan makes any trip there an experience not to be missed. Kobeya not only provides that opportunity but it is second to none when it comes to Wagu beef, Akira Sans specialti of the house!

Had dinner here with 4 friends. We ordered a mixture of waygu beef, chicken and seafood. Food is presented raw on a plate which you cook yourself on a hot plate. Waygu beef melted in our mouths. Including drinks we paid around $50 per head. We had much cheaper meals in Hakuba but Kobeya was the stand out. Ask nicely and they will drive you back to your hotel. It's only a small place so bookings are recommended.

The kobe beef is incredible and amazingly cheap considering
The mixed plate is the best value with chicken, beef, vegetables, seafood.
The food is amazing and it's well worth a trip to this restaurant.

A very fun evening with a large group of friends. The quality was good as well as the variety of meats, vegetables, seafood and drinks. I'd definitely go back!
