My wife and I treated ourselves to dinner here on the advice of a friend and we experienced fabulous wagyu steak and truly excellent service, in a nice setting. As mentioned in other reviews, the prices are not cheap, ranging from ¥4,500 to ¥28,000 for a series of course menus, but choosing a mid range set was great value, we... More

The restaurant only serves the course menu and the price ranges 4,500JPY - 28,000JPY. I ordered course of 5,500 JPY and it was not bad at all. Wagyu steak was big enough and full of flavor. I got impression that the steak was rather reasonable, however the wine by the glass were comparatively pricy (1,500JPY). I think I will go... More

It is not a cheap restaurant, they only have fix priced menús, starting at 55usd per person. It can get more expensive depending on the quality of the meat you choose. There are 6 dishes in this type of menu, including dessert. I really recommend it, but to be honest, the 55usd meat was not excellent as other wagyu we... More

Let me get the bad out of the way. Only one of the restaurant staff has a good command of English and the menu is entirely in Japanese. It's located in a very residential part and out-of-the-way section of the town. Without your own set of wheels, rental or taxi, you will never get there. The menu is limited. The... More

We were glad to have had dinner at this restaurant in Nikko. We are wagyu fanatics and this restaurant is right up our street, offering wagyu beef from many places in Japan, even Sendai (which was the cheapest BTW). The set started with beef consomme, roast beef appetizer and chilled whole tomato. For the main, we chose the famous Maesawa... More

This is a place worth visiting during your stay in Nikko! Short taxi ride from Nikko station. ( ~1000 yen) Ask your hotel to make a reservation (last order at 7.30 pm). They don't have an English menu and the staff barely speaks English but they really try to help you. You can only have a set course menu: there's... More

This was a real nice find on our trip to Nikko. Hungry for steak, we taxi'd to this location (based only on the picture from TA) where we were met outside by the one of the waiters. Nobody spoke English, but it was clear that we were going to get steak and rice, and that it was going to be... More
