Caught the first 6:20am train from Echigo Yuzawa just to ensure our party of 8 can make it here for lunch since dinner for our stay in Takayama is well taken care of by our ryokan. You can imagine 4 sour faced teens when they lack sleep, change train 4 times and skip their breakfast. Even the dazzling views from... More

If you visit Takayama but miss the A5 Hida beef, it can be said that you have not really visited Takayama.

It was the first time we eat hida beef so I can not compare to other restaurants in Takayama but it was the most tender beef I have ever eaten. We arrive around 7PM and there was no line up like other comments seem to say. We took the 400g beef special set (different pieces in sauce to cook on... More

It was not as earthshaddering as it was penned out to be. Beef was tasty, but some cuts, like skirt were chewy.

After 15 days in Japan, we rated our lunch here as the best meal - a big call given that we had a number of truly memorable food experiences during our trip. We were in Takayama for the amazing Spring Festival and I wasn't sure if we could get a table so we arrived for a late lunch around 1.30pm.... More

At first we were a little worried about cooking the beef ourselves on the grill in front of us, as we didn't want to ruin it! However it made for a great experience - the beef was out of this world and totally worth the money (not expensive compared to other restaurants locally), not least as you feel you are... More

This is one restaurant you must go and have your meal, you will regret if you are nearby and did not go there for your Hida beef. We enjoyed it so much that we doubled up our order.

My wife and I were holidaying at Takayama and dine at this restaurant for lunch. We found out about Hida beef as soon as we got to this town. Reviews from TripAdvisor warned us of queues but when we got there about 12 noon on a Thursday, there were no queues so we were very fortunate indeed. When I looked... More
