“Amazing Kobe Beef”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

It was the first time that we ate the Kobe Beef...
It was a very good experience, in this restaurant that served the world's first "Teppanyaki" style.
The price is very expensive ~ $200 by peers, but this remains an unique experience as well...

“Great lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

We stopped at this restaurant for lunch whilst visiting Kyoto. I went for the "No" lunch menu and my partner went for the Set lunch menu with extra meat. Both were very reasonably priced and, although for this price, it was not Kobe beef, the meet was still lovely quality.
Food was expertly prepared in front of us and this in itself was enough to make it a great experience.
Decor was very pleasant; the restaurant s situated on the 5th floor of a building, so the views are also quite nice.
What really sells this place it the quality of staff. All extremely polite, whilst not being intrusive; some spoke very good English.
This is not the only place in Kyoto selling good quality beef, and some are considerably cheaper, but this is a place to bear in mind if you want to treat yourself for a special occasion. They also do great, excellent value lunches. I would recommend booking if you plan to go in the evening.

“Kobe beef prepared in front of you”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2011

So it was $404 for a really nice bottle of merlot, 2 salads, 2 starters of sashimi, and 3 1/2 oz. each of Kobe filet. The Kobe was prepared 3 different ways and absolutely, positively melted in your mouth and had great flavor!

By now we knew that everything in Japan is/was EXPENSIVE and just bit the bullet for what we wanted and that was an excellent choice on our part.

We really enjoyed the evening and watching the preparation. Service was great and not intrusive.

Kobe is EXPENSIVE anywhere in the world, but if you're a carnivore like my husband and me, you go for it!!!! Enjoy! The manager was great and I would give his name, but I'm on a road trip and left the business card at home.
