I'm not a huge beef eater, but this was spectacular. We went for lunch, and the lunch special was about half the cost of a normal meal, though still over $50 per person. Worth doing once, for sure, and super convenient, as it's attached to...More

Definitely on the must try list! We travelled to Kobe just for this and got the Wakkoqu special tenderloin and sirloin set. The steak was delicious and literally melted in my mouth like butter! And the friend rice is a must! Cooked with the beef...More
