We had dinner for 5 adults while we were staying in Takayama. They very famous on their Hida meat. The tenderloin steak was great but the other steaks were OK. Not justified the extremely expensive meal

Asked a local shopkeeper where a good place for Hida steak would be. He strongly recommended this restaurant. The restaurant gave a casual dining ambiance not in keeping with its hefty price tag. 70s decor, paper napkins, paper placemats, no tablecloth, uncomfortable chairs. My husband...More

They have very nice beef and it comes with a price. However, it is really worth to try it. We ate the A5 grade fillet and sirloin steak. We also take away the korokke, reasonable price and is very tasty.

Great meal but we had the cheapest dishes. My husband had the roast beef and I had the beef pieces. Service good. Wine awful. Prices for the steaks are outrageous. 13000 yen for a steak is ridiculous.

Kitchen Hida is a good stake house. It was my first time to taste Hida Wagyu beef, and therefore I carefully read TripAdvisor in advance and chose this restaurant. But because my expectation was so big that I was somewhat disappointed. The stake was perfectly...More

I ordered a A3/A4 sirloin steak of 150g set that went with a drink and fresh green salad (about 5180 yen). It was very nicely done though about 1/3 of the steak was fat. The taste of the beef was strong and unique (imagine that...More

Pre-booked - knew it was going to be good and expensive. It turned out that way. But no complaint because it's probably one of the best Japanese beef joints around. I shared 450g of A5 sirloin with my daughter. My wife had 150g of the...More

Yes, you can really tell the difference between A3, A4 and A5. We are lucky as we always dined as a family here so we had all tried difference grade of hida beef. I personally preferred A5 but for my mum who doesn't like the... More
