Difficult to find grill restaurant in Namba district Osaka. Delicious Kobe beef - very well prepared by friendly chef with helpful staff. It is a Mom & Pop restaurant where besides the excellent beef the side dishes are well prepared as well.

My wife and I were Kobe beef novices, and found this place after a quick Google search (something like "best Kobe beef in Minami, Osaka") after the place recommended to us was closed. This restaurant was nearby so we decided to trust the Google search...More
