    The miyazaki beef was so soft and delicious. A bit pricey though since serving was a bit small.

    Went for Thanksgiving. Had a great experience with service and food. As a person who has gluten sensitivity it was great to have options for me. We were dining with my dad who had other food sensitivities and it was taken care of without a problem. I loved that!

    The food was deliciously amazing. It was upscale yet casual so the ambiance was comfortable and enjoyable. The pieces of meat seem small, but they are filling. My husband and I ordered a set of meats and tried each selection one by one. It was so nice to sit and eat slowly together, talking and enjoying the various cuts. It is expensive, but we felt it was worth the splurge since we enjoyed it so much.

    Absolute favorite. Would dine here everyday if I could. Amazing service, quality, variety, delicate flavors, 100% worth every penny for this quality. As a Japanese person, there are way too many restaurants that serve “so-called wagyu” that literally tastes like crap, nothing like real wagyu. If you are looking for actual quality wagyu, stop wasting money on cheaper alternatives and go here for the real thing.

    I chose Han no Daidokoro for my birthday dinner as I heard great things. I celebrated with 2 of my friends and it was our first time dining here. The food was delicious! The Kimchee was definitely the highlight of our meal honestly. It’s on the sweeter side but it was a flavor we enjoyed. The Miyazaki cut meats are definitely worth their price difference. The meat literally melts in your mouth. We also had the Washu chef cuts. Still good but you can taste the difference. As for the service, we were disappointed as it started off great. At the end of dinner, my friends wanted to do something small for me. They asked our waiter if they provide anything for birthdays. Our waiter said “we only provide a ‘birthday stick’ and candle.” We were a bit confused but we said okay. My friend also order a crème brûlée for dessert. When we ended our meal the waitress brought over the crème brûlée with a candle and “happy birthday” sign on a stick. The crime brûlée was the dessert my friend order for himself and not included as a “complimentary ” birthday dessert. The happy birthday sign on the stick also caught on fire. Definitely a safety hazard. For the price point we paid for 3 of us, we were disappointed with our service, especially when celebrating a birthday. There were other parties celebrating and we saw that they received ice cream with their candle and “birthday” sign. I’m not sure if it’s just our server or if the restaurant really doesn’t provide a complimentary “celebration” dessert. If they don’t, then I think the waiters should be more clear.

    We had a wonderful server named Josh. He gave us time to review the extensive menu and came back to ask if we had any questions. He gave informative answers to help us choose our dinner selections. He was polite, kind and friendly. I really appreciated his friendly demeanor. This was the first time trying Japanese A5 and American Washu beef. Needless to say every bite was a delight. The tenderness and flavors of each beef cut was delicious. Definitely an experience to remember.

    We specifically ordered a $65ish special and a 10 course $120 meal. When we got our bill the $65 special was $139. When we asked the waiter, he claimed we ordered something else. We specifically pointed to the special so I don’t know how we ordered something else as he claimed. My husband didn’t want to make a fuss so we left without complaining. But I feel like the management should know that we felt like we were swindled by the waiter. Food was good but the experience left a bad impression. Was going to take the whole family on our next visit but most likely will not based on what happened.

    This is my 3rd time dining here and each time was better than the last. The restaurant staff are always nice and accommodating and the food.....I mean come on. Melt in your mouth Miyazaki Wagyu Beef. Yummers! I had the Miyazaki and Washu Beef 11- course set menu ($120) and it was very good. Every course was fantastic. The last time I was here I ordered just the Miyazaki Beef 11-course set menu ($150) and between the two, I prefer the Miyazaki Beef set much better. The Miyazaki and Washu set is good so you can try the two different types of meat and see which you prefer. Now that I have, it's Miyazaki Beef all the way on my next visit. The Miyazaki Beef is by far the best Wagyu I've had outside of Japan. If you don't mind eating a few dishes of raw (FRESH)Japanese Wagyu beef in addition to the cooked version (only need to cook 30-60 seconds) then give this place a go. But be prepared. Menu prices are not cheap. Then again, Wagyu beef is never cheap. The set menu closed with a dessert choice of either green tea ice cream or marscapone ice cream. I went green tea and you really have to like the matcha taste. It's pretty strong and though they drizzle a bit of honey on top which helps with the bitterness, I could only eat 3/4 of it. Parking is located just behind the restaurant but is limited. If it's full then you can park in the parking garage that houses the Marshall's and TJ Maxx stores which is a bit of a walk to the restaurant. Street parking is also available if you get lucky. Overall I really enjoyed coming here the past 3 times and I will be back for my 4th very soon! Itadakimasu!

    My boyfriend and I celebrated our 7 year anniversary here and it was our first time. Our friend recommended to us to try out this place and I'm so glad she did. I know the price is expensive, but this was worth it to us. The food was amazing! The meat just melts in your mouth and it felt so buttery. We shared the Miyazaki beef and Washu beef course and did Ala carte. To me, the portion seemed small, but towards the end I was full. Our server, Brad was nice and knowledgeable. He went over the menu and gave us his recommendation and most popular dish. He recommended his favorite meat to try which was the Skirt steak. And he mentioned to try the mascarpone ice cream with their tea. Chef kiss! It was great! We appreciate the service he gave us. The staff was friendly and welcoming. The place was nice and clean. The whole experience was wonderful and I recommend coming back here again!
