We had ordered the Ribeye and also the grade 7 wagyu and oh boy the taste was lovely. The price premium you have to pay for this lovely meal reflects the premium status of the meat they are grilling for you. The onion flower dish is unique and just lovely, but it's a bit too much for just 2 especially... More

Despite... More
