stood in front of the restaurant for over 10 minutes without realizing this was the right one. walked in without a reservation and was asked to come back in 40 minutes.. not a problem since there were shops around to see. one of the most expensive meal we've had on this trip but worth every penny.

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!

With all the hype about Kobe beef, I really needed to try it to decide myself. I went in with high expectations and I came out with the biggest OMG moment. Heading toward the restaurant from the station, there were many hagglers trying to convince my wife and I that their restaurant was the one to go to. However, we... More

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. Then she walked away and a manager-looked man comes out, says we are full, the remaining 70% are for reservation. What a waste of time to... More

This restaurant is in my to-eat list seeing the positive review but planned to try Aoyama Steak as it's a family-ran restaurant which feels more authentic. Unfortunately, Aoyama is closed today. So, we proceed to Moriya. We were prepared to spend for the A5 Kobe beef that "melts in your mouth". We went for lunch and we chose the lunch... More

Me and my wife and other couple went to this restaurant for dinner. The staff recommended us to have the Sirloin and Tenderloin steak in the Kobe beef family so as we can compare the difference textures and tastes. We ordered 4 pieces and each piece should be around 180 gm. But it was so disappointed while the beef came... More

The beef was delish. I had the non kobe beef (quite similar yet loads cheaper) once and the auth exspensive kobe beef the second time. Both were exquisite and left me wanting for more even when I had returned to Singapore. If you're on a budget, the nonkobe beef set is just as good. YUMS for both.

It had been in my to do list in Japan to have an authentic Kobe beef in Kobe. I instantly found out that the reputation about Kobe beef was not a lie. When I look back, the whole dinner time was like a dream, especially Moriya provided the beef in such a great exhibition with all the side dishes. It... More

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.
