“Best yakiniku in Cebu”
Reviewed 27 June 2013

The owner is Japanese and supposedly cuts all the meat himself, which is a big reason their beef tastes the best in Cebu. If he goes on holiday, the restaurant closes, cuz he doesn't want to compromise the restaurant's quality if he doesn't cut it himself. I think Tajimaya is good, but Kanyoen is FAR better! Of course quality comes with a price, but its justified here. Just my two cents.

“The best yakiniku ever!”
Reviewed 4 February 2013

The meat was a-maz-ing! I tried the top of the line meat and it literally melted in my mouth. Sadly, it also meant a top of the line bill (ha-ha) But anyway, the experience was overall, very good. I would definitely go back to this place! The service was great as well.

“Whatta meal!”
Reviewed 27 October 2012

Just had an amazing yakiniku dinner in Kanyoen! Joe karubi and tongue is simply the best! Decor is simple yet it stuck to the theme. Restaurant is clean and the staff are very good. No need to order the really high end beef as the joe karubi is good enough to satisfy considering the price. Wish they had this restaurant in Manila. Love their salad as well. Will definitely eat here again.

“The best yakiniku place in cebu”
Reviewed 1 October 2012

This is an expensive restaurant but they are one of the best yakiniku restaurants in Cebu. Cooking your own food over a gas fired grill in your own table is a good bonding experience for the whole family. Its selection of the different kinds of beef are all good. For first timers, avoid ordering chicken, which takes a long time to cook, or you can ask one of the waitresses to cook your food.
