Beef is decent. But the experience is poor as this is a very run down and old restaurant. The place is messy, chairs are broken, packs of beef are disorganized,... Good food and experience compliments each other. This joint misses both. And for the price,...More

The hida beef served here is reasonably priced with great quality. The owner here has his own farm and the beef is directly provided from the farm, the beef also exported overseas, like Hong Kong. You could choose the beef you like from the fridge...More

The Hida sirloin beef chosen and served by the restaurant boss had lots of chewy tendons. see attached photo. The Hida sirloin beef I ate at Maruaki restaurant the next day was much better.

Two thumbs up for the hida beef. Perfect on charcoal barbeque. Simple seasoning....simply enjoy the superb beef.

Loved the beef here which melts in your mouth. Recommended by a friend and we had no regrets coming here. Minimum 200g per pax and it's reasonably priced.

We actually visited for lunch in Dec 2014 because it was highly recommended by my friend. It is not a full service restaurant as my understanding is that they are the supplier of high quality Hida beef to many high end fine dining restaurants including...More

The 1st time we were there, it was closed so we tried Maruaki. We were disappointed and wondered if Hida beef was really that tasty. We had a chance to have 2nd try so we decided to go to this restaurant. If you want fine...More

This is an unique restaurant, good for beef lovers. The place is unique because you select your piece of beef, they cut and you cook (charcoal heating style) at the table. Beef is very expensive in Japan but here they have more affordable prices because...More
