The place is quite big and busy, we had to wait quite a bit before getting a table, but they are quite well organised. We order a mix plate of differet meat and vegetable to grill. The meat is quite good, obviously if you choose the plate with different cuts you will get to taste the difference. Food and service e were good as usual in Japan, the place is very spacious and you do not smell of meat when you go out, but it lacks a bit of cosyness. In general I would recommend it if you are in the neighbourhood.

I can't overemphasize how great the beef here was. Get the sirloin. It's not the most expensive so you might think it's not the best, but we tried several of the beef dishes and this was absolutely the best. It arrives in thin, raw, slices and you cook it yourself on a propane burner in the middle of the table. Don't let it overcook, it cooks in less than thirty seconds a side, I recommend a little salt and a bit of the red pepper paste.

Excellent beef, good service, nice place. Some of the Takayama restaurants disappoint, this one doesn't.

Ajikuratengoku serves good quality of Hida Beef. Reservation is needed and the queue is very long. Fortunately, our hotel was very close to the restaurant, so we put our name on the list and waited in the hotel.
