Will I come back: Yes!

Pork-free, serves alcohol

This post is based on the Japanese A5 Wagyu Beef served here.


I have been here at least 4-5 times and the quality of Wagyu was consistent each visit, also they only serve A5 Wagyu!

I usually order the Japanese Beef Large Set (500g) and the assortment ranges from leaner cuts to fattier cuts.

One thing I didn’t really like is that the beef is covered with sweet sauce. It’s still good, but would prefer having original beef instead. Or maybe they should provide options 🤔 After eating halfway through I started getting “jelak” of the taste so I’ve learned to avoid the sauce and request for seasalt and wasabi on the side😉

I somehow prefer the quality of meat here over Shin Nihon.


It’s very affordable considering the quality and quantity of the Wagyu! The Japanese Beef Large Set (RM310+) feeds 2-3pax and it comes with assorted kimchi.


The waiters are nice but sometimes a bit blur. There was an unpleasant experience when the waiters forgot my reservation and someone else took my table. But the owner apologised multiple times so I decided to come back.


Nothing extraordinary but the place is comfortable and clean.


I have yet to try the other side dishes / Ala Carte because I’m only interested in their Wagyu beef so no judgement on the rest.
