Please make sure you have reservation for this place not your ordinary tourist attraction, local love this place, possibly best Yakiniku I have in Japan, the beef is out of the world, best quality possible and the price is very reasonable. Excellent experience, don't miss the beef sushi, the beef melt in your mouth! Highly recommend

First of all, it was difficult to get a reservations. Was told that booking open 1 month in advance but when I called to book exactly 1 month before, the Shirokane branch was fully booked. Luckily I managed to book for my party of 8 at the Hongo branch. It did not disappoint.

We started with the premier grade of the beef tongue. Very chewy and tasted good. Followed by a portion of thinly sliced loin. We then ordered the in house special, a portion of the premier cut of Kalbi with raw egg for each one of us. The meats were just grazed over the fire for a few seconds. It was then dipped and eaten with raw egg. It was simply heavenly - the meat simply melted in the mouth. Although it cost ¥2160 for one piece of meat but definitely well worth the price.

We also tried the pork stomach but wouldn't recommend it.
