We went there with our baby and were arranged to sit in a room shared with other customers at the back of the restaurant. The atmosphere for counter seat may be better given you can see the cooking but table seat is perfect for us with a baby and a stroller. Staff is very attentive and friendly. Food is delicious - steak is perfectly cooked - so tender! Even the salad is impressive! Highly recommend to people who want nice beef in Kyoto!

We each had a slightly different set menu here and every course was delicious- one of those few experiences where I did take pictures of the food and send on to some friends. The beef was excellent, as were the soups, salads, other courses and there were delicious desserts and tea or coffee to finish off. The staff were great and there was a good selection of drinks and wine. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Kyoto, the quality and service were worth the price, and probably best to book as it is popular.

We found this restaurant while walking around Kyoto and it was a delicious meal. We came later in the evening, so we were able to get a table without a reservation. Definitely need to be a red meat eater, as almost every dish had to do with wagyu beef. And they definitely know how to cook wagyu beef.

They were also able to accommodate my gluten allergy (I have celiac disease). They even had Tamari!

Great Teppanyaki experience.
Would recommend skipping the set menu and choosing from the A La carte for better value.
Particularly recommended is the marinated salmon, the ceasar salad, onion soup, and of course the Wagyu beef.
We were only in Kyoto 2 nights but went back again after the first night because we enjoyed it so much.

Excellent food well worth the price. The standard menu offers a multicourse meal including roast, brisket, steak or sirloin; as well as an appetiser of thinly sliced chicken and a dessert of your choice.

Got a fine selection of wine to go with the meat, although I recommend avoiding the beer (especially the local craft, which just about compares to a European lager reserved for export only) as well as some of the house wines (the shiraz is nice).

Book a table in advance because the place is usually crowded. The staff is very friendly and does speak English.
