Had a fabulous meal here. I had a roast beef starter with salad and fillet steak which was superb. We had seen it recommended and it was a little difficult to find but well worth it. We had not booked but was able to get a table okay. The bar facing the chef was full which was a shame as watching it being cooked is part of the experience. We were the only westerners in the restaurant which is always a good sign.

Had the Wagyu fillet steak and it was honestly one of the best steaks I've had in my life! We had this as part of a 9,700yen menu. Exceptional, high quality food which would cost £100's in other countries.

The steaks are suburb,melt in the mouth is really true,the waiting staff are charming and informative, the only criticism is that the veg is over cooked, however certainly worth a visit.

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!
