    Okinawa Pref. Nahashi Nishi 1-7-3
    Located in Naha City, Jack’s Steak House is a long-established steak restaurant that opened in 1953, not long after the end of the Second World War. It offers delicious, high-quality steak at reasonable prices, and is popular with both tourists and locals. The interior, which is reminiscent of an American diner, still features the “A Sign” permit awarded to the restaurant during the American Occupation.

    Great dinning choice. Food was attractive. Price is great overall basis. Hidden in a corner and thus may take an effort to search for the location.

    Hokkaido Hakodateshi Suehirochou 23-18
    This is a gourmet burger restaurant located in the Bay area of Hakodate in Hokkaido, and its colorful clown signboard is a landmark. The interior of the restaurant is like a forest with the keynote being green, and there is a merry-go-round style wooden horse and swinging seats, with an atmosphere which is the same as an amusement park. The most popular burger is the “Chinese chicken” which has a Chinese flavored salty-sweet sauce. For groups, the gigantic “Mount Hakodate Burger” where three burgers can be enjoyed together is also popular.

    There are about a dozen of this chain in HDate. The one one water near the Red Sheds is where went. There was another 100m away over the road. I had a Shrimp / Prawn burger which was good. They...

    Gifu Pref. Takayamashi Kamichinomachi 94
    A conspicuous Hamburger specialty restaurant located in Takayama City in an area where much atmospheric, old architecture remains. The restaurant’s long and narrow “space for eating Hamburgers” stretches away from the entrance, and the establishment’s eye-catching décor will make you forget you’re in Japan’s Hida-Takayama region. The restaurant’s signature menu selection is its Hida beef burger—made with ingredients from Hida and limited to just a few customers each day, this original recipe Hamburger is also popular with visiting international tourists. The restaurant’s large menu also includes the unshakably popular bacon cheeseburger as well as the avocado burger, particularly popular with women. The restaurant also carries beers from around the world and a wide selection of other drinks.

    I’ve lived in Japan for3 years now, and this is by far the best burger I have eaten here. The Quattro burger was huge and tasty. No side order required, although I shared a few wedges (fries) with my...

    This is the first “bills” in Japan, an Australian all-day casual dining experience found in the fashionable “WEEKEND HOUSE ALLEY” along Shichirigahama Beach. One can enjoy select fresh seasonal food while sitting on the terrace with an unbroken view of Shichirigahama Beach.

    Probably the best views of any place around here, but not cheap. Id get there early to avoid having the queue.

    Tokyo Minato-ku Kitaoyama 2-1-15
    The first Japanese location of this popular New York hamburger chain, standing in the Meijijingu Gaien park in the Kita-Aoyama area of Minato City, Tokyo. The shop’s patties are all Angus beef, a high grade brand beef which is fed special fodder. People love Shake Shack’s juicy burgers. The shop’s hearty hot dogs, made with plump wieners, and its original frozen custard are also popular. Diners can enjoy a relaxing meal on the shop’s open and airy terrace overlooking the beautiful nearby avenue of gingko trees.

    Globally, all Shake Shack restaurants have maintained a uniformly very good quality of food and drinks, and the Tokyo, Japan one was no different from the New York City Shake Shacks! Must visit when...

    Miyazaki Pref. Miyazakishi Tachibanadorihigashi 3-4-24
    This long-standing Western restaurant opened in 1956, in Miyazaki City, Miyazaki Prefecture. It is one of the restaurants said to have devised the Miyazaki’s specialty Chicken Nanban. The restaurant prides itself on its Chicken Nanban, made with tender chicken breast meat, cooked and immediately covered in sweet vinegar and a homemade tartar sauce. Locals and tourists alike line up to buy it. The old-fashioned interior, styled like a Western town restaurant, is also quite appealing.

    Visited this restaurant to enjoy the renowned nanban chicken in Miyazaki with my friend. Staff is helpful and service is quick. The location is a bit hard to find but persevere and you’ll be rewarded...

    Hyougo Pref. Koubeshi Chuou-ku Shimoyamatedori 2-1-17 Maurya Building
    This well-established steak house that is located a three-minute walk from Sannomiya was founded in 1885. Ever since then they have been particular about the quality of their meat, and they also have good quality, thoroughly marbled Kobe beef on hand. The soft steak that has a texture which almost seems to melt in one's mouth is an exquisite masterpiece that allows the diner to thoroughly enjoy the umami flavor of the premium meat. The lunch options that allow guests to enjoy Kobe beef and other carefully selected beef at reasonable prices are popular. With its classy yet relaxed atmosphere, many patrons use this restaurant for anniversaries or special occasions.

    We booked a reservation here because we knew it was very popular. We wanted to come for lunch. Kobe beef is VERY expensive but we wanted to try it. This restaurant was founded in 1885 is well known...

    Osaka Osakashi Chuou-ku Nishishinsaibashi 2-7-27
    A venerable “yoshoku” Japanese-style Western restaurant located in Osaka City’s Chuo Ward said to be the originator of omelet rice. It is believed that a dish created for a regular with a weak stomach who always ordered rice and omelets in 1925 became the model for the popular Japanese dish. The restaurant is housed in a tea ceremony house-style purely Japanese building and the omelet rice served here tastes extra special when eaten while seated on a zabuton cushion on the tatami mat floor. In addition to standard ketchup-based omelet rice, the restaurant also serves a wide variety of variations, such as hayashi sauce and beef stew-based versions.

    Serve authentic Japanese Omurice(Omelette rice) which is very very delicious. It is like a canteen kind of environment. But very nice spots to sit in. They have a lot of choices of Omu rice to...

    Tokyo Chuou-ku Nihombashi 1-12-10
    This is a long-established restaurant for yoshoku cuisine (Japan's take on Western-style food) located in Nihombashi. It has maintained tastes that are unchanged since it was founded in 1931, and is widely known as a restaurant that even impresses foodies. The first floor features a casual restaurant with traditional yoshoku food served at reasonable prices, while the second floor is a full-fledged restaurant. They are famous for their Tanpopo Omuraisu, a dish popularized by director Juzo Itami in which an omelette is served over fried rice with chicken. Their hayashi rice and beef tongue stew that are covered in a demi-glace sauce prepared over the course of a week are exquisite.

    Easy to find but close early. The omurice that we had did not come out like what it was shown. Guess we did not do it correctly. Food was good but the price is abit high. Had the chicken and fried...

    At this restaurant approximately two minutes on foot from Enoden Shichirigahama Station, you can enjoy their popular curry while taking in the view of Shichirigahama Beach in Kamakura. This is one of Kamakura's best-known shops for curry, including their pork curry made with high-grade pork raised in Yokohama. They also have appetizers like carpaccio, and a wide variety of meat and seafood dishes.

    We had the stroganoff, the pork lemon, the fried fish wrapped in lettuce and the seafood salad. We went on a Friday lunch and we can see that this place can be crowded on the weekends. We also sat...

    Tokyo Shibuya-ku Jingumae 3-25-12 Fuji Building B1F
    A restaurant standing just a five-minute walk from Tokyo Metro Meiji-jingumae Station serving roast beef rice bowls and American beef dishes. The sparsely lit interior creates a chic and subdued atmosphere. The restaurant's famed roast beef rice bowls are so piled high with beef you can't see the rice underneath. The hearty portions and tender meat have ensured their popularity. The steak rice bowls, covered with a special sauce, are particularly recommended.

    I know that Red Rock is famous but I didn’t exactly have the intention of visiting it. I was strolling through Harajuku and so happened to see a queue forming outside at 11am++ so I decided to join...

The establishment serves steaks made with choice, top quality Kobe beef, and customers can enjoy watching as a chef prepares their meal with exquisite skill on an iron griddle right in front of your eyes. During lunchtime, the restaurant offers a reasonably priced steak lunch which comes with grilled vegetables, rice, and your choice of either a 100-gram or 150-gram steak.

    Overhyped. Service was slow. Things didnt arrive until asked for. Giving the benefit of the doubt that a more experienced chef wouldve have picked up on the service. Beef was okay/good, but rest of...

    This hamburger shop is said to be the best one in Okinawa. It boasts an overwhelming popularity because of their large and tasty burgers and reasonable price. Besides hamburgers, they also offer highly satisfying large drinks. The wait is often long for this popular shop, but you definitely want to eat here at least once if you go to Okinawa.

    I didnt dine in here but ordered take-out. While waiting for my burger my clothing quickly soaked up the smell of fried burgers from the kitchen. The food was really good, amongst one of the best...

    "This buffet restaurant is located on the 17th floor of the main building of the Imperial Hotel Tokyo located close to exit A13 of Hibiya Station on various subway lines. The hotel is the birthplace of Japan's ""Viking""-style all-you-can-eat buffets, and here customers can enjoy fresh-baked, flavorful pie dishes and dazzling roasted dishes prepared right in front of your eyes by experienced chefs. Particularly recommended are the modern recreations of classic recipes offered during the Tokyo Olympics in 1964; the exact selection of these dishes on offer is changed each season. From the restaurant, customers can get a view of lush Hibiya Park during the day and the glittering Tokyo nightscape in the evening."

    A European style curry restaurant located on the second floor of the Kanda Kosho Center Building in Jinbo-cho. The restaurant's curry was perfected by the original owner after he became deeply impressed by the depth of the basic sauces used in French cuisine. Its delicious flavor is the result of skillfully combining a secret blend of spices together with an abundance of dairy and several varieties of fruits and vegetables. All of the restaurant's curries come with rice and piping hot potatoes. The most popular item on the menu is the restaurant's signature beef curry. Particularly popular with women are the vegetable curry, which contains various tasty vegetables; and the cheese curry, topped with a hearty helping of cheese.

    Situated in the heart of the magnificent natural surroundings and commanding spectacular views of Mt. Yotei is Prativo, located in Niseko Milk Kobo, in Abuta County, Hokkaido. The buffet style lunch of meat, fish and pasta, etc. along with locally produced fresh vegetables is very popular. Using only a minimal amount of seasoning you can enjoy the real flavor and aroma of the vegetables. Desserts made with milk from the Takahashi Dairy Farm are sold in Niseko Milk Kobo. The cream puffs, filled with cream only after having been ordered, are extremely popular.

    We ate here two nights in a row for dinner mid February. Food and service were fantastic. It’s on the united bus at the milk kobo stop and then a 1 minute walk. The first night we ordered the meal...

    A Western-style restaurant located in the Nikko Fudosan Park area in Sannai, Nikko City. The restaurant serves a range of classic Western-style dishes exquisitely prepared including rice omelets with a demi-glace sauce, hamburger steaks, beef stew, steaks and seafood dishes. Coupled with the Western-style stone building restaurant, guests can savor the atmosphere of the Meiji period.

    The place seems very popular - perhaps because it has free parking if you eat there - but if you don’t have a reservation you’ll have to wait. I waited 20 mins at lunch time. Not too bad, and it gave...
