Absolutely wonderful experience - the food, the atmosphere, and the service. The kobe beef menu was extensive, and you can cook it yourself at your table. The Yoyogi neighborhood is slightly off the beaten path (between the Shinjuku and Shibuya neighborhoods) but well worth the effort. You will enjoy an old world attention to detail in a new world environment and leave with a lasting memory. This is definitely a dinner to remember and to include in your itinerary while visiting Tokyo.

I don't often get the chance to enjoy full course yakiniku meals, so I rake advantage of every chance. This was definitely the best in a long time, the course was amazing and the meat was truly melt in your mouth good. All the staff speaks English, so even my friend visiting Japan had no problem ordering or interacting. Definitely worth the price.

Came here for my friends birthday. Had amazing host and server to help explain everything on the menu. We ran a bit late, because the name on google map was different. Search "Yakiniku Ikuta" and you should find it easily. They were still nice too accommodate us when we arrived. Love the Kobe and the Geisha Soy Sauce.

説明してくれる方や、ベテランの方はすごく接客が良いが、バイトの人たちは接客が笑えるくらいひどかった。
失礼します、もなくドリンクを後ろから置いたり、勝手に七輪持って行ったり目に余る行動が、、
いいお店なのでもったいないなーと感じました。

Kleines Lokal mit besonders bemühten Servicemitarbeitern.
Wenn mit nicht die Premiumstücke bestellt finde ich das Lokal sogar äußerst Preiswert.
300 g Kobe Beef, drei Beilagen, zwei Bier und ein Wasser, inkl. Gedeck um ca. 100,00 Euro.

We had an absolutely amazing and wonderful night! The food was delicious, the service was outstanding, and the presentation and theatre helped round everything out. We had a set menu of Kobe Beef, mushrooms, and veggies. Everything was superb. Our table was well looked after for the evening and we felt very special. Highly recommended!

A wonderful restaurant just outside the hustle of central Tokyo. Is specializes in Kobe beef and the quality is first rate. Not only do they serve great meat, but also the accompaniments and side dishes are first rate. The service is very good (as usual in Tokyo). Finally the wine list is excellent and reasonably priced. Is you are going to have the world’s best beef, you really need a good glass of wine!

Obviously, it is not a cheap meal, but it is a wonderful splurge and a good intro to the wonders of Kobe beef. Worth it.

Service was top notch and they were very accommodating for the non Japanese English speaker. It is pricy around, 37,000 yen for 1 person if you do a Kobe trio with a few sides and a beer or two. I have slightly better A5, the marbling was a little lite compared to some other A5 I have had, but still melt in your mouth.

Staff was very attentive, I’d definitely go back again to try more of their special cuts.

Very polite and friendly, staff demonstrated grilling beef and what sauce to dip into. The Kobe beef is amazingly good, very pricey but definitely genuine and worth the money. The place is small so staff to customer ratio is high. Attentive and great conversation. They speak good English. I recommend it to beef lover!

Smooth and modern atmosphere.
Very pleasant staff to guide you and give you explanation about the origin of the beef, how to eat eat etc.
We decided to take the tasting menu « The Best II », which was a very good choice for us to discover the Kobe Beef with fine parts. It was well presented and very tasty. The side dishes were very nice as well.
We had a really good time there and appreciated the calm of the place.

I went to Kobe Beef Ikuta to celebrate my birthday while I took a solo trip to Japan. It’s a beautiful restaurant, and the food is incredibly delicious! The presentation was pretty, and I enjoyed cooking my steak to my liking on the grill. Overall, this place is outstanding and I highly recommend it!

We went there for a birthday celebration, and the staff were very accommodating for a large group. Also they helped with service of the cake. Service was excellent overall!
Meat was delicious, though personally I would avoid choosing the rumen again. Meat as is, without marinate, is great!
Lighting is a tad dark, so difficult for nice group photos.

The food was delicious. We went with "Best" selection of cuts, that was recommended to us by the staff. The beef melted in our mouths - the sirloin and the beef sushi were especially good.
Service was very good - since it was our first time in a yakiniku restaurant the staff did the first few slices of meat for us and recommended some pairings.
The price was quite high but that's to be expected for Kobe beef.

Me and my friends came here to celebrate our Tokyo Marathon finish. From beginning to end - the service, food and the ambience was amazing. The staff was welcoming and the food was delicious. This is not a place to cut costs to be prepared to pay 100-200 per person depending on your meal and drinks but if you want an outstanding special occasion while you are in Tokyo - this is the place

Our favourite yakiniku restaurant in Tokyo. Not cheap, but the service and quality of the meet more than make it value for money. Can't wait to visit again.

Came to this place for Kobe beef and reserved a spot with my gf. We didn’t get seated at a traditional grill, but rather almost like a bar spot around the periphery under the main lights. I didn’t like that so much but they couldn’t do anything about it.

The meat was good but a little pricy for the portion sizes we received. It wasn’t MIND BLOWING so I was a bit disappointed as a result after having eaten Wagyu in Kyoto a couple days prior. Definitely a pricy pick and I’m not sure I would come back after having tried Kobe Beef Ikuta

The service was fantastic!! I came here for the Kobe beef, but was blown away by the courteous and friendly staff. I ordered the sirloin Kobe beef and it was delicious and unlike anything I have ever tasted before- now it is hard to go back to eating American steak ;)
