If you go to Kobe you really need to try some high quality Kobe Beef. This would be a great place to give it a try. The service was excellent and the beef itself was mouth watering. The lunch menu is a little less expensive than dinner.

First time here make sure do online booking two weeks in advance before visit. Great Kobe beef for the price you pay, expect USD150 per person for top A5 Kobe beef set. Professional cook and nice food, traditional teppanyaki. Restaurant located 10mins walk from JR station from one straight road.

Well...my husband has been wanting to try Kobe beef and was expecting to be disappointed because Australian beef is so good. He was not. Lovely staff and great to see it cooked up close. Recommend booking.

After all the hype about Kobe Beef before visiting Japan, we finally made it to a restaurant that serves it within Kobe Prefecture. As it was our first time trying Kobe Beef, it was a good experience although we did not know what to expect from it. We ordered the Kobe Beef Fillet Steak 130g (A4-5) and Prime Kobe Beef... More

Really delicious Kobe beef! Friendly chef is cooking right in front of us and take photo for us with the beef. Beef is amazing, very tender and melt in month. This is must try in Kobe. Even if Kobe is not in your plan, it is worthy to go there just for the beef!

My experience with this place is not very pleasant. I arrived at 3pm in the restaurant, it is 30% full. When I arrived, the waitress did not say anything until I start asking questions.

Description
Mouriya store was established in 1885 as a fresh meat store in the
place where the Honten Restaurant is located presently. The business
has been developed and now it is the restaurant that serves Kobe Beef.
Our boast of the restaurants is superlative quality of beef that has
been strictly selected without making a compromise; we have learned
how important the sincerity is through the history of 120 years of
business. Therefore, I usually recommend customers to eat the first
bite by sprinkling of Ako’s salt to know how good the beef is.
“Happy comfortableness for the customers who visit the restaurant for
the first time, and veritable contentment for the customers who have
repeatedly visited the restaurant” is the motto of our restaurants
and the owner and staffs wish to serve customers the highest quality
food possible; as it is our great pleasure to see our customers enjoy
having steaks.
There are 15 seats in the first floor, 18 seats in the second floor,
and 13 seats on the third floor, total 51 seats in the Honten
Restaurant. They are divided into the no smoking floors and the
smoking floor. Sannomiya Restaurant and Royal Restaurant are located
of 30 seconds on foot from the Hoten Restaurant and each has its
features.
Please visit Honten Restaurant by all means when you feel like dining
in a snug steak house in the atmosphere of old days.
