Read about this place in advance and decided on it as our wagyu experience of Kyoto. Did not disappoint. Absolutely gorgeous and well worth every penny.

This was one of the best meals we ate in Japan. They serve top grade Matsusaka beef and you get to choose the cuts. Then you cook it yourself on a bbq at your table with some beautiful dipping sauces. We also had the vegetables...More

Easily one of the best bbq restaurant in Kyoto. Stylish, yet traditional (you need to take your shoes off). Excellent meat and service, nice atmosphere although a bit too warm. Not cheap but worth it. One small complaint: too little beef for the price (bear...More

I really don't understand the reviews on this place. Their lowest priced beef set is up to 6000 yen, and it's a pretty small portion. On top of that, they were hopelessly confusing in describing how much you got per order. Then there's the garlic...More

Best beef I have ever had! Melting in the mouth like butter! More importantly, black garlic fried rice was the "MUST HAVE"!!! SOOOOOO GOOD!

I can only confirm 5 star rating reviews. Beef is good so as garlic rice. I'm not quite sold out on the idea of cooking my own steak after dropping $300 or so. Having said that it was great fun. Meat doesn't need any seasoning...More

goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center
is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and

Please call them. They have servers who speak English and one of them speaks English very well. Have you tried calling the Google number? I don't know what day is April 7th but unless it's a big party, they should have space. More
