Loved the beef here which melts in your mouth. Recommended by a friend and we had no regrets coming here. Minimum 200g per pax and it's reasonably priced.

This has to be the best steak I have ever eaten. Hida beef straight from the farm. The owner was friendly and we enjoyed the whole experience.

We actually visited for lunch in Dec 2014 because it was highly recommended by my friend. It is not a full service restaurant as my understanding is that they are the supplier of high quality Hida beef to many high end fine dining restaurants including the steakhouse at the Hong Kong Four Seasons Hotel (we are from HK) and this...

The 1st time we were there, it was closed so we tried Maruaki. We were disappointed and wondered if Hida beef was really that tasty. We had a chance to have 2nd try so we decided to go to this restaurant. If you want fine dining, don't go to this restaurant. This restaurant has no decoration, the atmosphere is simple.... More

This is an unique restaurant, good for beef lovers. The place is unique because you select your piece of beef, they cut and you cook (charcoal heating style) at the table. Beef is very expensive in Japan but here they have more affordable prices because the beef come from the owner's farm (he is a local producer as well). To... More

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel and should have gone with the gut feel when we arrived and the place was largely empty. The beef was absolutely delicious, as this company also raise their own cattle and deliver from farm to the plate, but unfortunately all the accompaniments did not support the high grade of the meat. Cabbage,... More

Our hotel recommended this place, we had no idea what to expect. Like some reviews below have said the atmosphere isn't amazing, but the steak is the star. You don't need music and frills the focus is all on the best meat. It's marbly and beautiful you choose your chunk from the freezer then you cook it yourself on charcoal... More

This unassuming 1st storey restaurant serves Hida beef direct from Yamamoto-san's farms. It is I reckon the second best beef I've had. Ever. (Best was in Imperial Hotel Tokyo which was much much more expensive). Price was ¥1,480 per 100g for sirloin plus ¥480 per person for unlimited vegetables and green tea and we also had a flight of for... More

We can just kick ourselves for having fallen into this trap. We should have known better. First the positives: the beef is of very good quality. It is marbled beef, tender and tasty. You grill it over hot coals at your table and it doesn't need anything but some salt to taste great. Unfortunately there are a large number of... More
