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.

This has to be the best steak I have ever eaten. Hida beef straight from the farm. The owner was friendly and we enjoyed the whole experience.

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 the steakhouse at the Hong Kong Four Seasons Hotel (we are from HK) and this place only cost us a fraction of the hotel price with the same quality of beef. Apparently the locals loves the place also as there were other tables with locals having lunch when we were there. Other reviewers have detailed the mechanics of this semi self service eatery, so I will just say - our family was thoroughly satisfied with our experience dining at Yamatake Shoten (dinner the previous night at Maruaki was only so-so). We had so much Hida beef from just 2 pieces of steak and the memory and flavor of the Hida Beef stay on with us ever since.

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 dining, don't go to this restaurant. This restaurant has no decoration, the atmosphere is simple. If you want quality of beef, this is the one! The beef comes from the owner's farm so the owner offers it at reasonable price.

You choose your chunk from the freezer and tell the staff how many grams you want (min. 200g per person). Then they will cut it into slices for you to cook at your table (BBQ).

They will also charge for 480yen per person for self-serve food e.g. tea/water, vegetables and dessert. You can eat as much as you can :) Rice is not included.

You don't have to add anything to the beef, just some salt is fine.
The beef was so tender and tasty, melted in your mouth. Although the beef looked fatty, it wasn't oily.

This restaurant was good. It can't compare with the one we went previously.

We don't give it an excellent review as we only tried two restaurants.
