Yakiniku is Japanese style barbecue. This restaurant is a Yakiniku chain and their seating system is quite unique. Seats are separated by individual mini-sized grills for one person and partitions to enable customers to come here alone and concentrate on their Yakiniku privately.
This restaurant's counter has built-in grills for each person.
It is a mini-sized grill for one person.
Most of the seats are separated by individual partitions. This restaurant is nice for one person.
There is a basket under the counter. You can put your bag in it. This basket is not trash box.
Open the drawer in the picture above. There are disposable chopsticks, hand wipes and toothpicks.
Water is supplied on the counter as it would be at a conveyor-belt sushi restaurant. The water is served at room-temperature (or a little bit cold) and is available for self-service. Conveyor-belt sushi restaurants use the same system to serve water, but instead they usually offer hot water for customers to make green tea by themselves.
Touch screen menu is also available for each person.
If you want a disposable apron free of charge, Please ask the staff or order it with the touch screen. It is good for customers who don't want their clothes to get dirty with splattering.
You can change the language of the touch screen from Japanese to English. (First, tap 日本語 to change the language.)

Short Plate of Beef 100g (3.53oz)
You need to grill the meat yourself.
Smooth Soy Sauce Flavor
Thick Soy Sauce Flavor
Gochujang (Korean Red Chili Paste)
Please use tongs when you grill the meat, because the chopsticks would be rendered unsanitary by the raw meat.
In Japan, some restaurants and bars round the bill to the nearest 10 or 100 yen above or below.
For example, this is a receipt I had at Yakiniku Like:
530 × 1.1 - 3 = 580 yen
The 10% tax is added on, and then it rounds to the nearest 10 yen below.
(But when I went to a bar in Tokyo, they rounded to the nearest 100 yen above.)
Rice Refill for Free 11:00 am - 5:00 pm
This rice is regular size.
Black Wagyu Beef 黒毛和牛
Wagyu Ribs (Black Wagyu Beef)
50g 740 yen
100g 1480 yen
When I went there, they offered only one kind of Japanese wagyu beef above. The other meat items on the menu were not wagyu.
This marbled meat was tender and juicy. I felt a delightful flavor.
When you finish your meal, turn off the grill yourself, the switch is easily accessible.
I highly recommend you go to the restaurant on the 29th, because every 29th day of the month, they offer some kind of discount.
When I went there on May 29th, the two items below were HALF PRICE!
Wagyu Ribs (Black Wagyu Beef)
50g 740 yen → 370 yen
100g 1480 yen → 740 yen
*It is acceptable to order only one of the two items, and available until this wagyu is sold out. (You can order it only once.)
The details of the discount might change every month, but in the last few months, the promotion has been the same.
