Steak House Yoshida is a grade 5A certified steak house located in the heart of Gion, so you can be assured of genuine quality. We arrived shortly after they opened for dinner, so we got the personal attention from the chef and staff. The chef actually had time to converse and explain, so we highly recommend that you arrive early. When the place filled up, he basically just went to work and didn't have time to chat.

The staff are English speaking, and they offer English menu, so for us it was very helpful. We ended up choosing the set dinner that came with a house complimentary opener, appetizer, soup, salad, rice, Japanese radish, the steak, potato & pickled items, ending with dessert and coffee.

Steak is selected by the weight, we got both tenderloin and sirloin. The phrase "melt in your mouth tender" would be the best description. It is prepared to order, right in front of you on the grill. It is enjoyed with a thin slice of grilled garlic, bit of wasabi sauce, simply heaven!!

The whole evening experience was A+, a night to remember. Yes, it probably rates amongst the most expensive dinner we've ever paid, but the experience and the quality of the steaks made it worth the price. Some customers went with a la carte, but we really enjoyed the multi course dinner.

To call this a steakhouse is like calling a Bentley a car. This is far better than just a grilled piece of meat and some fries.

This is a temple to the finest Japanese beef. The Ohmi that they serve is not akin to any kind of grilled beef found elsewhere.

That is not to denigrate the Argentinian, USDA, Australian and other excellent meats out there, but they are aiming for a different kind of product.

What is served at Yoshida is an appreciation of the local breed, cooked in a way that emphasises its fattiness and its tenderness. It is not meant to replace a barbecue.

Yoshida is an excellent exponent of this type of meal. The beef is buttery, tender to the point of not needing to be chewed, floods your mouths with delicious juices, and leaves you with a lasting memory of how special it is.

Yoshida is not cheap; dinner for two with the Ohmi beef comes to 35-40,000¥, but it is worth it for a special occasion.

The traditional Gion house in which it is served merely serves to accentuate the experience.

Restaurant with nice ambiance which offers great steaks-my best ever. Staff is so nice and pleasant. Recommended especially for guests who wants to find a culture touch, experience of Japanese service. Chef is prepairing your steak in front of you. The price is higher but compare to quality of meat is reasonable.
