Tiny restaurant on second floor where you must fight an uphill batter before getting the right to wait. I hope they have insurance for customers rolling down from the second floor. Food is nice, even the 1200 yen one is good too.

Just like what everyone says... The steak does melt in your mouth. So tender and so juicy. Absolutely worth it if you enjoy a good steak.

This is how steak should be: cooked perfectly (medium-rare for me), pinches of salt and pepper with a side of veggies to complete the plate but not take away the focus from the steak. The matsusaka beef (black-haired beef) is just so tender and juicy...More

This steak house is located above the butcher's shop. You go there to have the best steak in the world. This is not a fine dining, multi-course restaurant. I never want to eat other steak any more.

We had lunch at this hole in the wall restaurant earlier today (Easter Sunday). We were lucky that we were accommodated immediately since there wasn't any queue. We've been living in Tokyo for 10 years and it was our first time to dine there. I'd...More

I don't think there is such policy, I'm sure it's fine to bring your child with.

YES, the restaurant advertises that they take reservations ONLY for dinner. I was there July for lunch only. I personally would NOT recommend standing in line for hours waiting for a seat during lunch. I didn't try to get a... More
