Great food, service was great even though we are foreigners from Australia they still catered to us. 10/10


The best beef restaurant I've been to in Japan. Follows the progression of kaiseki course pretty closely, nothing too modern or crazy. Incredible quality beef.


Had a fantastic meat experience and ate the best meat that melted in the mouth. It's really only in Japan that you can eat meat at this level. Really feel like I want to come back here next time I visit Tokyo. Definitely worth the money.
The food is prepared in front of you (the meat was grilled on site if you are sensitive to smoke).
I think it goes without saying that the chef talks to regulars, but he also took his time to talk to those who came for the first time and also to my partner who could not speak Japanese. Super nice!
