“Misleading name - could do better in Central”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

For a restaurant named after a premium variety of beef, it is a little misleading. It doesn't specialise in Wagyu beef, nor is it particularly premium.

In fact, it's yet another typical noisy generic western restaurant in the upper LKF area. Food is not bad by any measure, but I certainly won't go out of my way for it as it is not particularly special compared to the other options available in Central. Service is professional and efficient, but that's as close one gets to a highlight.

Location is close enough to Central to be on the edge of convenient, depending on the weather - just about close enough to walk to when the weather permits, but too close to line up for a taxi. Main gripe would be that it's certainly not a very good choice for a high end business lunch - as other reviewers have noted, it is very noisy. Although we were seated by the wall, we had to practically shout at each other to be heard.

As a business lunch venue, it's not a good choice and as a tourist, there are many better choices to be had.

“has not changed”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

Still very loud place and even louder as it was friday evening when we ate here and wyndham street was packed. Menu has not changed and food quality is still very good . Do not expect 3star michelin food but rather home made food . We enjoyed the salt and pepper tofu as apetizers and veal schnitzels as main course everything was made to perfection as i would have it @ home. Wine list is interesting we took the only south african wine on the list wich was very nice . Service as usual very good and management very friendly doing a great job.

“Great food!”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

One of my favourite restaurants! I like the atmosphere there, I recommend the Wagyu beef, it's delicious! Better book before, as it is quite busy on the weekends especially.

“Average.....”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

After many year we decide to try wagyu even if it's not our restaurant style...maybe because they don't have 1 when you read the menu looks like a mix and match of restaurant, cuisine and ideas; any way the experience wasn't memorable...average food quality, average service....wasn't bad...at the end with finish both our dishes but.... nothing to talk at home.

“Ridiculously Amazing Steak!!!”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

Ya, the Wagyu steak here was pretty much (as far as I can remember) the best steak I have ever had ... I actually tried to think of a better place (better than Gotham and Shoreclub in Vancouver) ... the only place that comes close is a place I went to in Yamagata Japan years ago that served Kobe (yes, I remember steaks).

Had the mussels to start - not that great (quite small compared to Vancouver and Sydney Aus) and they came with fries! like I need fries before having a 10oz steak???

The portions are huge ... the drinks are great (just a little up there in price). Atmosphere is much more lively than say your traditional steakhouse since its on a party street.

The menu is WAY over complicated .. they could really shed 80% of it and there would still be enough to choose from. Ended up around $200 CAD a person with a couple nice bottles of Argentinian Malbac. Oh ya service was impeccable.

I will 110% come back here. UNREAL.
