  • happy hour is super worth it! order the beef tongue & Kobe beef!
  • Beef toro is amazing!
  • I like the food and hot sake while the chef cook your order and you can see how manage the knifes and you feel the heat of fire in the grill. . .
  • Low quality meat and inattentive services. Definitely never going back again.
  • Meat lovers BBQ dinner! The Adicting Cabbage Salad was also great!
  • Food is great, Monday all day happy hour!
  • Beef! Kobe style beef!
  • They never disappoint. Try any of their beef in sweet soy sauce.
  • Their meat are so good, they marinate just perfect!
  • Everthing is so good , very authentic restaurant .
  • The sirloin matinated with rosemary is amazing. Duck is also good. And filet mignon.
  • Tuna volcano is my personal favorite.
  • A must go in San Mateo. Bring your friends for a fun barbecue night.
  • Beef tounge is a must in here
  • Don't come hungry. Grilling the meat can take a while. New jalapeo marinade packs quite a kick, be aware if you can't handle spicy!
  • The beef toro was our favorite! I liked the chili boiled dumplings more than the fried kind. And save room for dessert. Taiyaki ice cream yummm
  • I normally go to Korean BBQ but unfortunately there aren't that many in the San Mateo area. This Japanese yakiniku style substitutes nicely when I don't want to drive to Sunnyvale for KBBQ.
  • Duck breast and harami miso steak
  • The meat here seems to be better than the one served at Cupertino branch. However, the overall service is more variable when compared to the other branch.
  • Cody was what made my meal tonight very pleasant. He's courteous and friendly. After waiting over an hour for a table, he understood our frustration and rushed our order. Make sure to ask for him! :)
