Our family went to this restaurant for dinner, and this is our best meal in our trip. The waitress was also very attentive and proactive, although we did not make a reservation, some of the dishes we wanted to try were sold out, but the staff recommended were very delicious, we were very satisfied.

The staff are very professional, before the cooking, they shown us what kind of meat we ordered and cook in front of us. Also they well known of what temperature and time needed to handle different kind of meat. They let the meat rest with several time to keeping the meat juice and aroma. We ordered different type of beef, we can taste every different textures and mature tastes on each part, what a amazing experience.

We were surprised that the manager gave us a Wagyu burger, which was their signature dish, very delicious. Really grateful for her kindness.

We all think this shop is a very worthwhile place to go, next time will come again. Highly Recommended !!


A hidden gem in Osaka - amazing beef paired with great hospitality. Unfortunately, the staff don't speak much English, but they were still extremely patient with foreigners and made a very concerted effort to explain everything, which made the experience very memorable. I'm already dreaming of the next time I return to Osaka.


We booked online in advance before we arrived in Japan but there was a mistake with the booking and they actually booked us 2 days later than our actual date. However, they managed to still give us a table after waiting for around 30 mins and they were very apologetic about it.

The quality of the beef and the professionalism of the staff who cooked the beef for us was amazing. They were very thorough with the cooking method and they do it right in front of you. We had 3 different cuts of black haired wagyu, 2 of them being dry aged. They presented us with the 3 cuts of meat and grilled them right in front of us, they would then wrap it in foil and let it rest for a few minutes before grilling them again. They would repeat this process about 2 or 3 times before serving the beef to us. It was a little bit lengthy but the end result was more than worth the wait. The meat was very juicy and tender as well as being amazingly flavourful. Paired with the various kinds of toppings made it an extremely enjoyable meal.

Would definitely recommend this place to any beef lovers looking for a good steak, beware however the staff speaks limited English so it is preferred if you can speak Japanese, but you can get by with Google Translate.
