Excellent shabu shaubu and sukiyaki for a great price! We were two and ordered a sukiyaki and a shabu shabu with extras, 4 beers and it all came down to around 50€ the view was beautiful and it was fun to cook, plus super tasty,...specially because of the sauce!More

Wonderful evening, I took a sukiyaki set and I was delighted, high quality beef and fresh seasonal ingredients for a fair price. The waitress was so gentle and helpful. I hope I can come again!

We ate there tonight and we had a really great time. The place is beautifully decorated with a wonderful view and the food was incredibly delicious. A really great way to start off the vacation. We ate two sukiyaki menu sets and they were definitely...more than worth their price (2500¥ ca.), both in quantity and quality. Would most definitely recommendMore

Great food and friendly, helpful staff. We came with three children and they really enjoyed it. The only downside was that we were seated next to other customers who were smoking.

Sukiyaki with interesting meringue(whipped egg white) which was perfect with the beef. Stylish atmosphere and service was nice. They helped show us how to cook the beef

This was our first time eating sukiyaki so I can't compare with other sukiyaki. What I can say is that we really enjoyed the experience, the meat and the view. You are cooking your own thinly sliced meat so the degree of cooking is completely...up to you. Luckily our waitress was very helpful preparing the plate with warishita and dashi and even cooked the first slice to show the generally preferred "doneness" and to introduce the egg meringue. Don't know of it is the best meat or the purest expression of sukiyaki but if you are looking for a reasonable priced, enjoyable meal and you like meat or have never tried sakuyaki it's a great place to go (honest review, regardless of discount for review)More

I find it impossible to believe that this is the best restaurant in all of Osaka, or even a top 10. The 10% discount for TripAdvisor reviews is surely skewing this. Look, the higher quality meat cuts are good but won't win any accolades from...true beef enthusiasts. Part of the problem is that the grill cooks the meat quickly, and tends to overcook it. If you prefer medium rare meat, that will be challenging. The side vegetables aren’t filling or particularly tasty, and the chips are just blah. Drink selection is limited (e.g., only one beer on draft, and it’s Asahi Super Dry). My waiter was the only one on staff and served as the sole greeter, cashier and waiter. The place wasn’t at all busy but he ignored me once my food came out. Nice guy but he barely spoke English. Now, I like the novel aspect of cooking your own meat, and the view of Namba from the 7th floor is fun, especially if you're seated by the window. So here's a tip: every floor in the building is a different restaurant, and they all looked interesting to me. Stop at some random floors and take a peek. You might end up more satisfied going to one of these places instead.More

The experience was amazing! The food was delicious - I especially enjoyed the fried chicken and the chicken skewers. The staff were also very nice.
