“Usually great steak, but will now avoid it for everything else”
The chefs prepare steak with respect and culinary grace. The wait staff is wonderful and prompt. But everything else is well below standard. The standard appetizer was an unappetizing serving of poorly smoked salmon on onions. So, I ordered a shrimp appetizer but they were "sold out" (at 5:30pm). T...his is the second time I've been here over the past six months and it was also sold out six moths ago. Instead, I ordered the abalone. It was terrible. It came to the teppan already cooked - so not fresh. The chef just dumped it out of its shell and then just cut it into large chucks that were served in a butter sauce. The chunk were still cold, tasteless, and were truly as difficult to chew as tire rubber. I could not eat it. I ordered an A4 filet for dinner. It was not what I was served. I instead got something that looked and tasted like US Choice beef and it was cut from the head and not the center. I was prepared well but did not measure up to expectations. It was almost as disappointing as the greasy and flavorless garlic fried rice. Disappointing indeed.

“Very good teppan food”
Expensive, naturally for Kobe beef, food very good, busy with good ambience, wine 'close your eyes expensive' but ok...why is wine so expensive in Japan in a restaurant compared with at an off licence, would have drunk less beer and more wine but for astonishing cost ...... usually a measure is 80ml... or 8-9 glasses per bottle.. a recipe for cutting down the intake.

“Buyer beware. Not always "Kobe" beef.”
Be very careful about what you order, and be sure to ask lots of questions before confirming your choice of meal. Many of the sets that they had available IMPLY that you will be served Kobe beef, but only the expensive and à la carte options served actual, graded Kobe beef. The staff was not very ...friendly and seemed annoyed that they had to accommodate English speaking customers. This was mid-tier Kobe beef. I have had better.

1- to make a good steak, it has to be at room temperature. I asked for rare steak which meant I was served a steak where the middle was cold, as clearly they just took it out of the fridge. The quality of the meat was good, however the taste didn't reach its potential. 2- the menu said (bread or ric...e) which was not included in the menu and was extra as it was in (parenthesis). Garlic rice was good, but the menu was not clear. 3- I booked online our table which meant I already paid around 33000 yen. I had to remind the restaurant as they were about to charge us again for the full amount. 4- service was slow and staff were confused. Not recommending this place.
