I was sold on coming here after reading the reviews and I can promise you that nothing disappointed! We arrived there when they opened at 11:30am and were told that they were fully booked and that we should come back at 1:30pm. I had just sprained my ankle but if that hadn't happened we would've been going to the herb gardens and ropeway (like gondola). We were still able to walk around the building because there were so many shops (that we couldn't afford) so we didn't mind the wait at all. I was just hoping that it was worth it.
And it totally was! The english spoken by the staff there was pretty decent and the food was spectacular! It was my boyfriend and I so we ordered the sirloin and the filet. They both came with an appetizer which was smoked salmon, capers, and onions. The onions were not potent at all and at first we even thought it was daikon! The meat was presented in a manner where you could appreciate the marbling and there seemed to be a method to the cooking madness because even the sides of the slabs were seared. Not like the teppanyaki places in America where everything is just tossed around... here everything was lovingly placed and cut and served. The chef even explained the different ways to try the meat so that you could find your own preference. I personally liked the salt only and my boyfriend liked the mustard and shoyu mix. Ugh... talk about melt in your mouth!!! People said to focus on the texture, not the taste, but I thought the taste was just perfect, too! The only complaint that I have was that we chose tea instead of coffee afterwards thinking that it would be green tea. It was like english tea which I don't care for too much.
I'll admit that I regret eating here only because i know I'll never have that kind of quality service or meat unless I go out of country. Sigh.
