We visited the restaurant two times during our stay. We ordered A5 Hida Beef which we found the best beef we ever tasted. The beef is tasty, juicy and simply like melted in our mouth. It's a bit pricey but it's really worth it considering the quality of the beef.

The beef is fatty but very tasty. Super delicious. Our 2 persons set was not big enough for us. We ordered extra 200 grams of their top quality beef. Waitresses could not speak much English. They do have English menu with pictures.

Hida beef is wonderful but this restaurant's prices are way to high. Everything needs to be ordered separately which keeps adding up. No one spoke any English to be able to explain the rather complicated menu.

This is our first time eating sukiyaki. We were shown how to cook it. We walked past this restaurant last night and there was a line up. We came about 2pm (late lunch) now we know why the line up. I think this is our best experience in japan so far except for eating onomiyaki.

The restaurant is closed at 23.00, but we are the second last person that the resturant agree to accept. The visitors came after that, was rejected. After waiting more than 30 minutes, finally we can have the table. It was the big table enough for 6 persons. They do not have small table, that why there is a long queue.... More

After a long wait for a table, we were disappointed in the meal and in the service. We ordered the "best" Hide beef called A5 which comes with a few pieces of vegetable. (Cabbage for grilling ?!?) The dish was described as being for 2 to 3 people but it barely fed the 2 of us. Service was prompt but... More

I ate here on a Friday at around 5:30pm so I got in before the rush. The A5 steak was all sold out but I got the lean steak which was still amazing (in my opinion - can't compare it to the A5 unfortunately). You can grill away at the table and the meat is divine. The lean type was... More

Hida Beef is as good or even better than Kobe Beef. Costs considerably less and this is the place to try this delicious treat. Some reviews mentione that there are long waiting, but we arrived kind of late for lunch and waited no more than 5 minutes. Go for it!

Dined here on our visit to 高山 , where we patiently waited for around 10 minutes prior to our meal as there was a lot of foreign travellers. The beef served there were excellent, it was tenderous, juicy and very yummy. The other Japanese dishes served were also very good. The service there was not so good, waiters weren't attentive...

I purposely came here with my girlfriend to try the famous Hida A5. Naturally, I searched online to find one of the best restaurants to try it out in Takayama. Unfortunately, our experience there was not as satisfying as many others before us. Let me talk about the service first, when we ordered our food, the server was rude and... More
