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 ;)

Kobe Beef Ikuta was probably one of the best meals I have had in my life, if not the best. We got the combination set, not just barbecue, and I sort of regret it. Not because it wasn't delicious, but because the meat was just that tender and amazing! I think I would do that barbecue set if I was to go back. The kobe beef just melted in our mouths! The service was amazing. I had forgotten my cell phone in a shopping mall before getting to the restaurant, and they were kind enough to call the mall for me and arrange for me to pick up my phone. Overall, you would regret it if you didn't eat here. The chef even drew an amazing picture with chocolate and cake for my husband and I since it was our honeymoon!

Fabulous from start to finish. The food was outstanding, and the service very good considering my Japanese is non-existent. The beef was unsurprisingly superb, but do try a few of the more unusual (to a Westerner) items, such as the entrails, which are divine.

Went here with my husband based on a coworker's recommendation. What a treat!!! Ambiance was nice and felt very personal, despite the open space. Perfect date / special occasion location.

We had a set menu from Ikuta, which was an experience in an of itself. The food was delicious, and very well portioned. If you are unsure, the waiters/waitresses will demonstrate how to cook your meat and for how long.

Most notably, the service was absolutely OUTSTANDING - the owner should be proud. We were amazed by the waitresses, who all spoke a decent amount of English. They really look after every small detail and every time we thought we could not be more impressed, they managed to raise the bar higher. Worth every penny for the experience and food.

希少部位、牛タン、壺漬け等のアラカルトでいただきました。希少部位は、お店の方が焼いてくれました。肉全て美味しかったです。最後に、石焼ビビンバ、冷麺をシェアしましたが、これまた、絶品てした。
店の雰囲気、店員の方の接客も良かったです。連れが道に迷い、お店に連絡して店を聞いた時も適切に対応していただきました。値段は、この質なら、相応と思われます。また、お邪魔したい店でした。

This is a lovely restaurant. We were welcomed by kind and smiling staff . Our waiter is very helpful with enough English, menu explained nicely although there is English menu.
You will eat kobe beef here and you will please your mouth absolutely, no worries. And off course you will pay for that:-). That is OK for the this quality and ambiance. You may budget around 100-150 USD per adult based on your appetite and selection of wine. Yakuniku is a good and joyful eating style that my kids (12 and 19) enjoyed much.

NOTE: Pls. ask your taxi driver to check the Japanese displays around since there is no latin "IKUTA" letters in the entrance.

This is a cook yourself hibachi grill restaurant. The meat is super rich, exactly as it should. Not a lot of vegetables; we got the "grilling vegetables" which is actually lettuce & julienned carrots/cucumber/radish to make rolls like you would in Vietnamese cuisine.

Quality of beef was impressive. The marbelling of fat was insane. Really enjoyed dining here as it was our only "beef" meal in Tokyo. The staff had excellent service and offered to teach us how to cook the expensive meat properly.

Service was superb. Food was outstanding. We reserved a private room for a birthday celebration for a small fee. It was well worth it. The plating of the food was meticulous and I'm still dreaming about the very marbled meats. Definitely worth a visit.

This was my first experience with Kobe beef and it was such an incredible moment for me. The restaurant is small and quiet, but that was normal from what I'd seen in Japan. However, the ambiance of the locale, the service and knowledge of or waiter was second-to-none, and everyone we spoke to was kind and helpful.

I'll say again, this was my first Kobe experience and there'sa good chance that it has ruined any future chances of my genuinely enjoying a steak house. It practically disintegrates in your mouth. You barely have to chew it, it's so tender. And the taste is like nothing I have *ever* had the pleasure of experiencing.

Or waiter suggested the perfect whiskey and sake to pair with the 7 course meal, and we're taking home bottles of what he said would be the best! We spent about 25,000¥ per person with the alcohol and it was worth every penny. I don't splurge often, but this was a one in a lifetime experience that I pray I'll be able to have again. I dream of the day I can return so I can visit this very restaurant once more.

それなりの価格ですが、肉の味は良好です。
最初に特製タン塩を頼みましたが、しばらく振りに軟らかく味のあるタンであったため、おもわずもう一皿追加注文し堪能しました。
