Pros: Awesome and tender beef / nice ambience. Cons: Waitresses are not too friendly / not really a kid-friendly place; our baby was crying and the waitresses told us to keep his volume down so as not to disturb the other customers.

My first visit to Kobe. Must have Kobe beef steak. You find restaurants advertised "Kobe beef" every corner but my host says it is not authentic. You need reservations for this restaurant. We had fillet, sirloin and rib-eye cooked to perfection in front of you....More

We tried the A5 kobe sirloin and tenderloin which both are really good beef and you don't need force to eat it. It's worth the price.
