Wanomiya offers sit down dining space inside the restaurant and also an outdoor option where you can eat at a few stands outside the restaurant, which is cheaper.

We went for the cheaper option and ordered Kobe beef red meat on rice which costs Yen 2000 per bowl. All 4 of us had the same order and we all agreed it was really good, even better than the Kobe beef we had in a much more expensive and upmarket restaurant in Kobe a few days earlier.

The beef was succulent and tender, cooked to medium/well. We just stood around the small standing table provided and finished up the beef rice in minutes. We had wanted to try the Kobe beef ramen as well but they were temporarily out of stock.

The next day, the 3 of us who went out shopping (son stayed behind in the room to do some work) went back to try the beef ramen for lunch. Each bowl cost Yen 1000. It was very good as well. The broth was thick and tasty, the noodles have a good texture and the sliced beef very succulent. Another good meal.

It was so good that all 4 of us were back for dinner that evening, ordering 4 bowls of Kobe beef on rice and a bowl of beef ramen. We lapped it all up.

Here's how it works. You basically queue up to order, pay and get a number, and wait for your food to be cooked right in front of you. When it is ready, your number will be called and you collect your food and enjoy it at the few standing tables provided. The staff are pretty helpful and friendly and can communicate in English.

Highly recommended if you like beef and are in the Dotonburi area in Osaka.

We chanced upon this while walking along Dotonbori and decided to give this a try. As the Dotonbori area was crowded, we were more than afraid that the restaurant would be fully-booked. To our surprise it wasn’t and very soon, the front desk staff could have us seated at the 2nd Level. There were about 5 levels in the building. The staff and chefs were all very friendly and it also made things easier when we had a Japanese friend with us on that night .

The chef took the time to explain the menu and also recommended a few different ways of eating the kobe beef. Chef himself had a great sense of humour and we were very well ‘entertained’ during the course of the dinner. Needless to say, the kobe beef was fabulous and the meat just simply melts in your mouth. The set also comes with a Yuzu salad which was refreshing and light.

Overall it was a very satisfying meal and the service was impeccable! I would highly recommend this restaurant. Thumbs up!

I liked this restaurant from the moment I walked in! The front desk staff were very welcoming and hospitable. The staff helped to make recommendations and explain the menu, and the chef was amazing- so friendly, and he even told me exactly how to pair certain items with the meat in order to get the best flavour. We even chatted a bit in Japanese...after I surprised him by speaking a little! My only regret during my visit is that I didn’t order a bigger cut of meat, as it was so delicious that I could have easily eaten double what I ordered! Price-wise, I’ve eaten Kobe beef before in Japan, and this place is well within the fair price range. Highly recommend!

Kobe Beef indeed has its own class for Beef.....and to have a try of it in Osaka, this restaurant is recommended.

The staffs are very friendly to visitor and the cook is even more entertaining.

The food here.. yummy..... We ordered 1 Kobe-gyu and 3 Regular Wagyu. The Kobe beef price is almost twice the regular. And they know that many travellers want to have a try of Kobe Wagyu.

So, the chef knows exactly how to serves the steak and he will tells you how to enjoy it at the best....

Satisfying first try of Kobe Beef... recommended restaurant.

A newly opened spot by Wanomiya of Kobe in Osaka.
We dropped by chance as we were trying to brave the crowd towards Dotombori bridge.

Good marketing campaign with the posters and award-winning placate. Yamaguchi-sama was an excellent marketer.
But he surely did not disappoint.

We enjoyed the meals as well as his stories of kuroge wagyu of Kobe, Matsuzaka and Hida beef.

The pics below did not give justice to the real tasting of the sweet Kobe A5 gyu!
They were excellent.
We chose the top course the offered and shared among three of us, plus meals of their 3rd best beef and the beef sushi of the 2nd best beef.
We could really compare the difference.

We think ¥8,000 for the A5 gyu menu is well worth it. Totalled ¥16,500 for 3 pax with a big smile.

Tomorrow it's time for ramen and onigiri to heal the bleeding wallet :D
