We were recommended to visit Hafuu for good beef and it did not disappoint. Like other reviewers, we noticed the patrons were mostly foreigners, but the service, quality and taste were excellent and it felt like Japanese-fusion. We had the set which was about USD100 which we recommend; the sake was good too. All in all, something different from the mainstream Japanese food you find, and a very good option for beef. The only downside is that it may be a little bit difficult to find. We also missed the restaurant because it's name was written on the inside of the welcome "cloth" so it reads "UUFAH" instead of "HAFUU" - keep a lookout!

Good food. Filet better than sirloin. Very few locals. Nice people. Bar style. Tasty food. Hard to find. Good prices. Good wine.

We phoned and booked a table, for the same evening, after reading TP reviews and were not disappointed. The Set Menu @ 7800 Yen...seemed good value. Five courses and coffee. Each course was excellently presented and explained in English. The chef's prepared the food as we sat and watched, a real joy, experiencing the "live kitchen" . Steak was definitely, melt in the mouth delicious...a true joy and highlight of the meal. Wine more expensive than Tokyo. Friendly host. VERY, very good...

The food was absolutely delicious, 5 course meal, and each dish they brought out was more delicious than the last. Truly the star of the meal was the steak cooked to perfection. The staff is very friendly and speak English. They were even so thoughtful as to call us a cab. Highly recommended!

I visited this place with my husband and it was just perfect. We only arrived at 9pm and we still felt welcome. The food was from A-Z delicious (the course set is worth the money)! The portions are not very big but it's just enough. A visit there is a must for every meat lover!
