Japanese
Manpuku, which means “to be happy with a full stomach” in Japanese, opened its doors to hungry customers in Tokyo more than 60 years ago. Our quest for quality led us to develop our beloved signature dish, Beef Tongue with Tokyo Negi which is slices of fresh tongue seasoned with salted minced scallions.

Today we are a premier chain of Japanese barbecue (yakiniku) restaurants and continue to bring you the best tasting dishes and the most enjoyable dining experience.

From our legendary tongue meat to our U.S. Kuroge Wagyu (black hide Japanese beef) any choice you make at Manpuku will undoubtedly fill both your heart and your stomach.

You can enjoy a very good Japanese Wagyu (beef) at this place.
Workers are very kind and service is really good as well. Please make an early reservation, because always busy there..

Without doubt the best Yakiniku in the South Bay area. This is not a AYCE place, and they do not serve free refillable banchan. What you'll get is top grade beef/meat elegantly presented, complemented by efficient friendly service. Highly recommended!

Great place for Japanese style BBQ. The food quality is excellent, especially the Wagyu beef. The set course menus are the way to go for the most value and variety. Everything from the salad, appetizers, main dishes, soup, and dessert was great.

Great Yakiniku, it’s not cheap but the meat quality is very good. They took off the hot stone bibimbap from the menu which is a huge disappointment but otherwise service is outstanding and well worth the visit.

Our first trip to Manpuku exceeded our expectations. The service was attentive, but not overbearing. We had the "choice meat option" for two. While it is not inexpensive, we were impressed by the verities of meats and sides. We are looking forward to our next visit.

It was absolutely amazing. I almost want to say that it was better than what I used to have in Japan. Service was flawless.
