I had to fit a kobe beef dinner during my two week Japan trip and so glad I chose Wakkoqu after reading reviews. I booked a reservation a week beforehand for a Wednesday night and it was fairly empty. Ended up choosing the A5 grade...More

Reservation is needed! We booked ours almost 2 months ahead. Location is quite hard too find, it’s inside a plaza. And we had a great lunch. ❤️

Perfect place to enjoy Kobe beef in Kobe. Wonderful staff, great chef, and extreme quality of products. A unique experience. Of course, book your venue before.

This place served fantastic Kobe beef, presented at long tables and cooked in front of you teppanyaki style. The attention to detail and service is incredible (the remaining fat and crispy bits were added to garlic rice), but it was a bit stiff and we...More

Our family of four went for dinner without a reservation - no problem, but it was early, at 4pm.
