I'm not a huge beef eater, but this was spectacular. We went for lunch, and the lunch special was about half the cost of a normal meal, though still over $50 per person. Worth doing once, for sure, and super convenient, as it's attached to...More

Pros: Awesome and tender beef / nice ambience. Cons: Waitresses are not too friendly / not really a kid-friendly place; our baby was crying and the waitresses told us to keep his volume down so as not to disturb the other customers.

If you want Kobe beef, you can't do better than this place. Not obvious to find, but worth the trouble. The chef prepares in front of you perfectly grilled steak with accompanying seasonal vegetables, and at the end makes a fried rice using the steak...More
