Amazing place. We had a reservation at 5 for two people on a weekday and it was full so you definitely need to make reservations beforehand. They have an english menu and the staff is very friendly, helpful and energetic. Our order arrived quickly and what can I say…. It was the best thing I have eaten. Delicious meat, tasty salad, lot of side dishes. The taste is amazing and the grilling experience is even better. Also there isn’t a smell or smoke even though all the tables are grilling so it was really comfortable. It was also super cheap compared to European restaurants. Highly recommend!!


The best restaurant we visited in Japan. ♥️

We were looking at the menu (English and Japanese menus available separately) and there were many options we liked so we ended up with the course menu which is to try a bit of everything. We chose the big course menu which has many types of meat (~10 types) and costs 4500¥ / person. The menu also includes salad, appetizer, desert.

The meat is incredible. All of it. I was amazed how good all tasted. You receive the meat ready for BBQ and you prepare it yourself on the grill in front of you. Make sure to put only what you gonna eat because it is cooked really fast (~1 min on each side). When you are ready for the next batch just put it on the grill again. Ask for instructions which sauce to use for which type of meat because there are several sauces.

The staff was very very attentive and kind. I dropped my chop sticks and I received new ones without asking. I was about to take some napkins and I just took the last one and I received a new box of napkins.

My belly is full now and i’m writing this happy review. We received a paper to fill with our feedback which is a nice detail. It means the customer matters. The waiter even came to ask some extra questions with google translate.

On our way out the whole staff thanked in one voice. The atmosphere and the food are top class.

I hope to come back again soon!


The best meal we had in Kyoto.
Incredible meat assortment in the #2 set.

Out of the way but worth coming, and very kind to foreigners.

Fun drinks!
