Assorted wagyu beef

To guarantee the perfect flavorful experience, the restaurant offers premium cooked meats over a flaming charcoal grill, while sipping on Japanese sake, shochu, and frosty cold beers to customers.

You have many choices of meats including the best-seller Harami skirt steak in miso marinade and certified Angus Kalbi short rib in tare sweet soy marinade. Some of the Angus beef is aged 21 days to increase tenderness and increase a rich flavor. The beef melts upon contact with your tongue and retains all of the pure and flavorful elements.

For seafood lovers, the restaurant receives daily shipments of the high-quality seafood straight from Japan. There are shrimps, cod with salted butter, scallop and many other selections. If you want some staple food, try the signature chives and egg rice topped with homemade sauce.

The waiters are willing to help cook the meat on the special smokeless roaster. With a down draft system, the smoke is sucked into the bottom of the table and away from you.
