The steak was decent, certainly nothing to complain about. We ordered the Kobe knuckle which was pretty good, and the wagyu ribeye, which we were not a fan of, but if you like ribeye, you will probably like this.

Fries were great, as was the bread and garlic rice. Good to try at least once.

First time trying dry-aged Kobe, knuckle. One of the best beef I've ever tried. Very juicy and tender, melts into your mouth. Had it with Caesar salad which was good as well. Service was good and helpful.

Me and my partner arrived in Kyoto and fancied a steak.

We was very close by and decided to pop.

We both agree that this was one of the best steaks we ever had.
We also ordered a few sides and highly recommend the corn and ceasar salad.

Came here on a last minute whim after a long day of touring Kyoto. We wanted to try some kobe beef before leaving town and found this establishment online. Google maps also led us here without any confusion, which was nice. This was very foreigner friendly and not intimidating at all.

Waitress spoke good enough English. We were able to split a Sirloin cut (168 grams) of kobe beef (for ~18814 Yen) and also had the grilled vegetable and fries. Although they did not have “top tier service,” the waitress was kind and would tend to us when asked.

The Kobe beef did live up to our expectations. It was fatty the way I like it and very savory. I also mixed in a bit of wasabi and a hint of their crushed salt and sauce with certain pieces, and the flavor was even more enhanced.

My fiancé and I were full after the meal and rather satisfied.

If you are someone who wants to eat Kobe beef at a foreigner-friendly establishment, I would definitely recommend this place.
