Just had a wonderful meal at kitchen hida! Recommended by locals -- we gave it a shot! The beef is super marbled and tender.. cooked right in front of you with browned butter and onions! Delicious!.. don't let the " diner ambience" trick you! This is prime beef !

They have very nice beef and it comes with a price. However, it is really worth to try it. We ate the A5 grade fillet and sirloin steak. We also take away the korokke, reasonable price and is very tasty.

Of all the restaurants I ate in during a recent 2-week visit to Japan, this is probably the hardest one for me to rate. We were staying in Takayama with a Japanese friend and Kitchen Hida was a restaurant that she had heard of by reputation from her friends and the media. So we were happy to book a table... More

Great meal but we had the cheapest dishes. My husband had the roast beef and I had the beef pieces. Service good. Wine awful. Prices for the steaks are outrageous. 13000 yen for a steak is ridiculous.

Kitchen Hida is a good stake house. It was my first time to taste Hida Wagyu beef, and therefore I carefully read TripAdvisor in advance and chose this restaurant. But because my expectation was so big that I was somewhat disappointed. The stake was perfectly OK, but thinking of the price it is still insufficient.

I ordered a A3/A4 sirloin steak of 150g set that went with a drink and fresh green salad (about 5180 yen). It was very nicely done though about 1/3 of the steak was fat. The taste of the beef was strong and unique (imagine that the steak itself tastes like stewed oxtail). The fried onion was very delicious. The gnocci... More

Pre-booked - knew it was going to be good and expensive. It turned out that way. But no complaint because it's probably one of the best Japanese beef joints around. I shared 450g of A5 sirloin with my daughter. My wife had 150g of the A5 fillet.Son had the beef stroganoff. We needed more and ordered another woof of fillet... More

Nice place specialized in hida beef dishes! The meat is excellent, maybe as good as a nice Kobe beef. The drink selection is just average: some good wines but just a few beers and one sake! While the beefs are great, the sides dishes included in the sets are just okay. Nice experience, recommended!

We walked in without a reservation and managed to immediately get a table. We had the premium Hida beef steaks which were good, which is what we expected from Kitchen Hida. The house wine on offer was not really drinkable though. Service was prompt and friendly. Overall a satisfactory meal.
