Posh setting and ambience. We ordered a beef set and I can't describe enough how the grilled meats melt in your mouth! Tried the wagyu too and it was sooooo good. Worth a visit for a special occasion as it's not cheap.

Should be a 4.5 star review, I'll explain as you read.

The location is pretty prime. It's inside a shopping complex (one of the 新光三越SHIN KONG MITSUKOSHI). Head straight to the 8th floor. There's two restaurants on this floor. One of them is a Taiwanese traditional cuisine restaurant called Shin Yeh, the second one is this. Make a reservation before you go, just to save you some waiting time.

My preferred time to go is during lunch. They have a good selection for A La Carte / Set Lunch. The price is pretty competitive and considered to be on the lower end if your from USA. You can order a set and get unlimited refills on Japanese Rice and the miso soup. All sets come with coffee and dessert at the end of the meal. Depending on which one you order, you get different meat qualities and portions. I opted for a mini Australian steak set. Very tender and juicy.

If you've never been to such BBQ / Yakiniku style restaurant. I recommend you tell the server. They can demonstrate the best way to cook the meat for the best taste. This also good because most of the time, they will cook your whole meal. =)

Service is a hit of miss depending on how busy they are. My first experience was at night for dinner. The server rushed our ordering experience, never guided us to portions, and never did any introduction to their menu. Not to blame, since I know they were packed and tried to accommodate us before the next reservation. You do pay 30-40% more at night.

Now check out the pics so you can drool over it.

Two years ago my friends recommended us to this place and since then this is a must eat place for us. Fresh and great tasting beef with great sake too. The best item is the chicken rice which is a grand finale to an excellent meal.

Buttery soft premium beef, to die for gratin (has both potato AND sweet potato inside) ..... even beef tongue (which I'm kinda squeamish about) was fantastic!

Cons : pricey, unless it's coming from your company expense account :) Reservations required, and TWD1,000 deposit also for large groups. Time limit of 2.5 hours ..... we exceeded it, but made up for it with a hefty bill :D

Tip : get a seat at the bar, and ask the staff to grill instead of doing it yourself!

This is a great dining experience. Good location - modern though traditional setting(yes - it is contradictory).

Lot's of choices of an interesting menu. Superb beef - great service - relaxed and soothing atmosphere. And don't worry about doing the BBQ - you will be looked after and the food will all be cooked for you. No complaints at all -at all.
Wonderful
