Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Really great place to eat Matsuzakagyu beef. A Japanese friend of mine recommend this place to me and it was a trielt unique experience. The staff is extremely friendly and very attentive. A very cosy atmosphere where one has its individual space and gets to...grill the meat oneself. The meat itself was like no other I have tasted before. Thank you so much for this great dinner!More

After a generous display of kindness from one of the waiters, we decided to eat here as a thank you. We were specifically at the Kibune river location. What we did not expect was one of the greatest dining experiences my wife and I have...ever had. Truly amazing food that is definitely worth the pretty penny that you spend for it, but even more amazing are the staff that are incredibly attentive and happy to serve you.More

Went to an amazing restaurant at Tokyo Tower that served 6 courses and cost roughly $500USD. That place doesn't even compare. For under $300USD you can have some of the best cuts of wagyu steak grilled the way you like it. Not to mention the...fantastic service. We had no reservation and they still accommodated us within 20 minutes.More

Fantastic restaurant. We were greeted warmly and the atmosphere is inviting with an old school feel but with modern touches. Excellent selection of cuts to choose from and a really elevated yakiniku experience. Their assortments of the “big 3” beefs (Omi, Matsusaka, and Kobe) had...options at several different price points agreeable for most budgets. If we are ever back in Kyoto, this will be a must stop.More
