$40000 yen for two
The thickest beef sukiyaki I had, which taste amazingly good.

I try to book online but it’s full, so I walk in randomly at 4pm, and I got a table immediately, lucky me.

Ordered one normal and one premium beef sukiyaki.
The premium one slightly more melty, but I would say it’s pretty much the same, so it’s up to you if u want a slightly melty one.

The service was great, PLEASE AWARE there’s extra charge for the service fee and tax, which is written on the outer menu.
With two sets, it’s around $40000 yen total, it’s a bit more pricy than other.


Traditional sukiyaki restaurant, where both food and service were on point, especially given the price point.

I sat next to locals despite being a foreigner so I guess I did not experience the negatives mentioned in other comments. Waiting staff were very attentive, and food was prepared with great care right in front of diners.


Very traditional Sukiyaki restaurant. The beef is excellent. Pretty expensive meal.
