Went by for a late night snack that turned into a full on steak dinner and no regrets at all. World class steak at a very reasonable price and the spinach was excellent as well. Wish it wasn't so late (2230) or I would have had more. Private rooms with a service buzzer they arrive within seconds and serve within minutes but this may have had to do with the time I was there. Definitely check it out if you're in the area actually let me refine that and say worth traveling to. Enjoy!

We decided to eat steak and walked in this restaurant without knowing anything about it. Atmosphere was amazing from the door, where you should take off your shoes and they direct you to your table. You have 2 options: normal table Japanese style siting on the floor. All tables are private, like a booth covered with curtain. You don't have to wait for the service, as any time you need something you just press the button in the table and someone will assist right away. And food... Oh I think it was the best meat I have had in Japan!!!!! So soft and delicious and juicy. And the surprise? You cook it yourself in the grill in the middle of your table. I ordered the rip set, was kind of small portion and costed 3500yen, which for me was more than worth it, but I'm just mentioning this so whoever reads it to keep in consideration. Anyway everything is small in Japan, food portions, rooms.. That's why I love it here!

This place is not very easy to notice. It is very traditional Japanese barbecue, you need to take off your shoes before going upstairs to the sitting area. The meat is really amazing here, very tender and a lot of varieties. You have a grill or two on each table where you grill the thinly sliced meat yourself. There is a veil which is pulled down to separate each table from the corridor. If you need the waiters there is a button that you press and they arrive instantly. Price was very good, tried 3 different meats and salad and paid around 70 dollars for the 2 of us.

Amazing food, in small, private booth. The meat is amazing. You get your own grill at the table. You take your shoes off when entering, go to a private booth with a little grill in the middle of the table. Do try the shrimp Korean pancakes and their matcha brûlée as dessert!
