Great first taste of kobe beef, very kind and informative staff. Would love to come back one day. I would recommend the Misuji beef. The place was a bit hard to find, therefore i upload a picture of the entrance. Walk up the stairs and to the right.

We booked two seats for a weeknight. When we arrived, the service was excellent. We were shown to a beautiful tatami mat room with sliding door. The staff spoke good English, and spent time making sure that we understood the different cuts of meat so that we could decide what we wanted. They also provide an English menu.

It's yakiniku, so you cook the meat yourself, but the staff explained the best way to cook the various cuts (30secs each side for the ribeye). The food isn't cheap, but it tasted absolutely amazing. Probably the best beef we have ever eaten.

The location is great, and the restaurant is well-signed from the road.

This is a special occasion place. Not cheap. Three people with drinks and our bill was about $400.00US but we’ll worth it. Great location, beautiful decor, service on point! English menu with English speaking staff.
I am still dreaming about this dinner. The wagyu melted in our mouths.

Came here for lunch, their lunch menu is affordable and offers wagyu beef, it was so delicious the beef just melts in your mouth. If you are nearby def come, it was all local people when we were here and it's Japanese/English menu

Edit - came back for dinner another day and the meal was beautiful. We ordered a set that cost roughly 200 USD with sirloin, tenderloin and short ribs, it's approx 30 USD cheaper than ordering individually.

All the wagyu were from Kobe and the intense marbling is crazy and the usual beef you find at home cannot compare to wagyu which are genetically predisposed to have high fat content.

The staff spoke decent English and the venue provides English menu as well. This was one of our favorite meal in Japan.

We also received complimentary appetizer from the set which includes takowasa (octopus with wasabi), edamame, and tripes.

The place is small with about 40 seating only. But it’s very elegant and classy.
We ordered “The Best” and it’s really the best beef. The beef is so tender and so tasty. It’s quite expensive though. But you will enjoy your beef and do savor each bite.
