Had our Easter dinner here tonight.

Food quality - superlike

Place - it's quiet and they played Japanese songs. Not too many customers tonight. Clean and parking is easy with P40.00 fee.

Service - Some crews know what they're doing, others don't. But over all they're kind and attended our needs.

Price - Yes. Really expensive. We had less than 10k bill tonight.

If you're looking for authentic beef, highly recommended this place!

Ended up here again... Coz epic fail on all our new Japanese restaurant escapade lately .. So back here to celebrate Maegan's bday bash... Yay!!!!! Where it's tried and tested & never disappoints .

We had plates of tamagoyaki for appetizer ... Delicate egg roll stuff with the juiciest tasting minced beef was a group favorite.

I had my usual hot spicy soup ... It's one of the most flavorful beef soup in town ... spicy enough yet doesn't burn ur tongue .. Light clear soup to wet my palate & satisfy my spicy cravings ...so perfectly executed ... done beautifully to my liking ....I can't hv it any other way 97869786

Sashimi... Always fresh... color was so inviting ... buttery firmness with the "melts in ur mouth goodness".. Weve got the sashimi platter which consist of chotoro, otoro, shake , scallop, engawa... really to die for all premium fave of mine...the group can't hv enough ... Our oh so generous bday princess ....then got endless more plates of the most gorgeous looking red orange shake sashimi I've seen ... Heavenly food served on a platter !!!! Actually many platters ... Yay!!!

Hamachi jaw... grilled to perfection... Lightly crisp skin... With little dash of salt and when u dig into the meat... Steam comes out & u bite into the most scrumptious moist meat ... A lovely plate of joy

The carnivores in us we're unleashed with the most sumptuous display of wagyu steaks and more wagyu steaks ... Omg!!... We had endless wagyu sirloin, wagyu joe karubi, wagyu karubi ... How can beef be so tasty, juicy & so tenderly soft?!?... It's driving me crazy!!! Looked at the most incredible marble in each piece ....succulent steaks that literally melts in ur mouth ... No other way to describe it more accurately ... so divine... our palate were truly sinfully spoiled to the limit. For once the group was quietly enjoying each morsel... Hahaha... Never realizes it before that there's actually a way to make our very loud group shut up!!!... Hahahaha ... Lol...

First time for me to try their Ebj fry... And omg... It tasted like prawn cakes... packed with all real prawns.... Plump & explodes with the sweet ocean loveliness with every bite..

Service was prompt , friendly & immaculate ... Place was chic & very cozy...

Others had their Japanese drip on coffee & we all had our choice of tiramisu, strawberry or strawberry cheesecake mochi to capped off this gorgeous dinner all thanks to my sweet beautiful friend...happy bday , more blessings & all the best in the world ... I love u much !!!

WOW... It has a good chewy Texture like the real mochi in japan 12855212856197869786128077128077128077. Not rock hard like most mochi I've tried here128532.
The filing was neither too sweet nor too bland. It was simply perfect and so creamy.

I'm not a sweet tooth,but after finishing my tiramisu mochi .. I can't help but order the strawberry cheesecake flavor 128561128076128076 .. Still no enough I try to hv a bite of my friends strawberry mochi... So unladylike 9786128514... And he told me.... Nobody dare gets in between a man and his mochi !!!!.... HAHAHA... And he hates dessert 128541128540

Found my new GUILTY PLEASURE128525128525128525.. Bet ull agree when u try it too9786

Hv a great peaceful weekend all 128139

I'm speechless ... Just back from japan 2 days ago & guessed I haven't had enough of Japanese food 127843127843127843.
I ordered their set c.. The all wagyu Kobe beef.. Their top of the line set ... And omg... It's so soft, it literally melts in my mouth... The marbling is amazing 128561128561.... They only get their beef from the Tajima bloodline. I was told by the staff that their yakiniku sauce is a special mix & enhances the taste of their meat , so I ask them how to properly prepare one & they're so nice & helpful to teach me97869786️... Love the sauce coz I love spicy food.. But with or without the sauce .. Taste is uncomparable to any I had here in Phils before . And even better than a lot of wagyu resto back in japan .. Now I don't hv to travel so far for authentic grade A5 wagyu.

I finished my sashimi mixed set even before remembering to take a pic haha9786️. They hand carry all their sashimi straight from japan.. Their salmon sashimi even looks more fresh that those I had in tsukiji market a few days back 128530.... The otoro,chotoro , uni engawa( my fave before , well now the entire sets my new fave 9786128541) is beyond words ... 127881127881127881127884
Quality , quality , quality !!!
I Simply love the place ... Helping me bring my fave cuisine closer.... I'll definitely be visiting here a lot . & staffs courteous , service is great... Love the ambience too9786

Tried this place with my Dad, and we ended up ordering Set A (can't remember the names of the beef included in this) for their table charcoal grill, along w/ a Japanese style omelette that had ground beef inside (again, the name alludes me... what can I say, I suck at remembering Japanese names). Both dishes were very good and very flavorful, but we both felt they were slightly overpriced.

This wouldn't be a restaurant I'd go to on a regular basis... but for a special treat, I'd consider it. So, I'd recommend the place, but make sure you bring a full wallet.

Late post.

Personally, I find those real charcoals overly hot that it directly burned my beef so quickly that I need to move ninja-style to keep it from catching the fire. I think they possibly over-heated the charcoals.

The heat also went straight to my face during the whole entire meal. It was obviously an unpleasant experience. 128545

While dining, my mom and I had a conversation about how this type of cooking isn't really ideal as it is carcinogenic, thus, imposes a higher risk of the big C..

🔸Salad and Appetizers (Kimchi and Bean Sprouts) were fresh and still crunchy.

🔸Jou Karubi is their special boneless short ribs with a mixed yakiniku sauce. The marbling wasn't as great as I think it would be and I felt that thin slices of beef at Ganso-Shabuway were much better. The whole dish was indifferent.

🔸Ishiyaki Bimbimbap with Egg was mediocre but I liked scraping those toasted parts off the bottom of the sizzling hot stone bowl.

I also honestly think that their price is quite steep for the food it offers. Hmm. I feel like I would not be going back again.

I come here for their grilled chicken thighs (boneless of course)! I don't even bother with the meats. Just the chicken and lots of Japanese rice and their Japanese green salad (lettuce in a soy sesame seed dressing), that's it and I keep coming back for more! Try charring it a bit when grilling for added yumminess! :-)
