We had a great experience! Service was impeccable. The Kobe beef literally melts in your mouth. We also tried the Japanese beef which was excellent. Definitely recommend!

Amazingly good teppanyaki. We got the Ise spine lobster and 2 forms of Japanese wagyu beef. Unbelievable!

We really enjoyed the food, and especially the Kobe beef, in this restaurant. Yet, compared to Michelin-starred restaurants, price-quality ratio is not good. Even though quality and ingredients are really good, prices are very high, for very small quantities. We were still hungry when leaving the restaurant, after a 11,000 yen menu (excl. drinks), and had to go eat noodles at our hotel...

Had lunch with my wife and two children during our visit to Nara. We had made our reservations in advance and we were the only customers that day. The food was excellent and prepared in a skillful way that is breathtaking to watch. The level of detail and passion the chef possesses is a beauty to see.

The restaurant is located on a beautiful street with plenty small local stores that sells quality products. The restaurant is also close to the train station and the Nara park.

It seems the menu changes all the time. We had the Kobe beef and it is so good it literally melts in your mouth. The salad and corn soup we had was heavenly. I remember my 3 year old son telling the mom "Mommy, no more McDonalds" after tasting the Kobe beef and that put a smile on the chef.

The chefs can speak sufficient English. The menu is set so communication on what to order is not something to worry about. All-in-all, excellent experience.

Before you are served the Kobe meal, they preset you with a certificate of the beef's family history upto three generations back.

This experience was as good as the other reviews made out. Really friendly staff, a great show of cooking the food in front of you, cost is high but you get what you pay for. I'm no Steak expert but both Kobe Beef and Wagyu tasted incredible to me. King Crab was unbelievable and the variety of vegetables was excellent too. Price for 3 adults with several drinks (including tax) was just under £300. (Dinner).
