From seating to the end, the waiter and waitress were very welcoming, although their English wasn't the best. They did very well.

My sister and I order the sukiyaki meal.
It was amazing. I loved watching and listening to the waitress explain everything.

I recommend this place.

The atmosphere was perfect as well.
There were so many rooms, and every one of them was huge.
So peaceful.

Arigato...

Even though it’s a little expensive, this place has legit gyudon. We got a huge table and the waitresses were really kind. I originally wanted to get the sukiyaki 🥩 but it was almost ¥10000 per dish!! But still very satisfied with the meal.

I want to come back again! Sukiyaki set need to make reservation in advance so didn’t get to try. But we were not disappointed by the set meal! The ice cream and hot tea totally completed my day! Lovely staff too.
