It was my last day in Kobe and I didn't want to miss this and had dinner here before taking the train and arriving very late into Kyoto. I was glad that I didn't miss this. The dinner set comes with your choice of beef, and some vegetables, rice or bread, soup, appetiser and coffee. The beef was cooked right... More

Without a doubt, the steak in Wakkoqu is the tastiest food I have had in my whole life. That’s no exaggeration, I made a trip back to Kobe just to eat here again. If you go early, you can save a lot of money by going for the lunch menu. We were given some salt, pepper, garlic and mustard and... More

We went for dinner on Thursday early evening and were lucky to be accepted for dinner without reservation (some others came right after us but had to leave again). The beef was truely outstanding but for over 100 Euro, also the remaining dishes should be very good. The soup and appetizer were very average though. Service was however very nice... More

The most memorable meal to our trip. Thoroughly enjoyed watching the chefs prepare our meal in front of us. Kobe beef was out-of-this-world amazing!!!! Most of us ordered the Kobe sirloin 250g $14200Yen and highly recommend this. Although they have lunch sets which are cheaper, I'd definitely recommend the former if you are here for the beef! Also make sure... More

The beef was great. Preparation is entertaining, and the service excellent. It was totally worth the cost.

I went to Wakkoqu for lunch based on friend's reccomendation. It was simply the best lunch i have ever had. The beef was so soft and it melted in my mouth. Price was quite pricey for lunch but reasonable for a high quality meat (around ¥5500 per person).

I also anted up for the A5 which cost around $125. The chef was super nice and the experience was wonderful. It is super close to the... More

we were there for lunch and ordered the set menu to try out the famed Kobe beef. Service was great, and the chefs went about their teppanyaki cooking with a great deal of skill and precision. it was entertaining. price wise is OK if you're justing having it once. whilst the set lunch only had an A4 on the menu,...
