We offer a range of choices, from top-quality A5 grade brand steaks and Japanese black cattle beef to reasonably priced Australian steak. Our chefs demonstrate their polished technique - they really know how to grill that steak just right!-before your eyes. We also have six rooms that accommodate parties of six and up.

I couldn't leave Japan without trying the fabled Kobe beef, so I asked advice to couple of Japanese friends. They recommended this place, and I was not deceived.

It's a bit hard to find (it's in the underground mall, under the New Hankyu Hotel) and I was the only non-Japanese there, so it's definitely not touristy.

The cooks know enough English to understand how you like your steak cooked, which is basically all that matters. I'd suggest going there for lunch (since it cost much less) and getting only the meat menu, because that's what's you're there for.

It's in no way cheap, but the meat is delicious and the experience is extremely satisfying (not to mention the bragging rights you get from having been there). If you feel like you can afford spending 100$ for a once-in-a-lifetime meal, I'd definitely tell you to go for it!

We didn't have a reservation and yet was glad to have a seating after 45 mins. wait. We soon found out why because they would speed up the service once you placed the order.

We had chosen a Teppanyaki menu with a round of seafood, followed by appetizer and a main menu with two types of beef. While we were still enjoying the round of seafood, the waitress delivered to us the appetizer, soup, the rice and the Japanese tea, all the items on the menu in one go !

In between the two rounds of beef, the Chef just exited for a few minutes and then returned to prepared the Sirloin while we were still working on the Tenderloin. It might be easier for the gentlemen to catch up but definitely not for the ladies !

The food was OK but when someone chose to have Teppanyaki (at a certain price), guessed they would prefer to savour the hot, freshly cooked food but not being rushed to finish it before it got cold !

Besides, serving the Japanese Tea (supposed to have it at the end of the meal) at the same time with the rice and appetizer didn't sound right to us; we could accept that in a local cafe but not from a prestige restaurant in a hotel !

Disappointed !

A bit pricy for a traditional Japanese steakhouse meal. However, the food was impeccable and so was the service. The waiters are fairly English proficient, the personal chefs a little less so, but they still pick up personal preferences by sign language. I had their Fuji style menu, which was delicious.
