As per the other reviews, you will probably need to wait if you go on a weekend or holiday. But, it"s worth it. Having lived in Japan for almost 30 years, and being self-professed beef aficionado, I was extremely satisfied at the taste and cost. Probably half of the customers are tourists from other Asian countries, (word gets around), so... More

We walked in around 7pm and waited almost 2 hours for our table, but were not disappointed. We ordered the Hida beef meat platter and it was amazing. The marbling is perfect and the meat melts in your mouth! It is not cheap but is a fantastic deal for the quality of meat!

Arrived early, shortly after 5pm and there were already 8/10 people waiting but fortunately our travel agent had booked a table so we went straight in. There was a bit of a delay after seating until we realised you had to ring a bell to get service - after that no problems. You select the type and amount of meat... More

We stayed at hotel nearby and visited this restaurant for dinner for 2 days. Though there is a long line but it is worth to wait. Please try if you were a beef lover!

Incredible hida beef! We all ordered fillet steak which we then cooked on our table. It literally melted in your mouth. All the side dishes (salads, vegetables) were large servings and of good value. Very nice staff, some of which spoke very good English. Very conveniently located for the takayama uaon hotel. All tables are set up like booths so... More

If you want to have some Hida beef and in a hurry to get dinner or feeling hungry when you get to this restaurant, find food somewhere else. My friends and I got to here around 8pm and there were still a lot of people waiting for their tables. We waited an hour and a bit before we got our... More

They offfer good quality meat in japanese style tables. They've got different separeted rooms which keeps the environment quite and relaxed. A good place to taste the Hida beef. The price is according to the quality of the meat.

Expect like 30 min waiting. We ordered A5 Hida beef big dish and I think it's just enough quantity for two. The service is quick and they have menus is Englidh. That cost us more than 5,000¥ so from my perspective is not that cheap.

Thank Anna P
