About Kobe Beef Kaiseki 511

511’s head chef bids on the finest Kobe beef cows, selecting for purchase, in their entirety, only those whose meat is of the highest quality. Lavish use is made of those rare cuts, which one has few chances to savor, in preparation for our genuine Kobe Beef Kaiseki.

The food was very good, but the cost was prohibitive. I would not go back as the cost was so high I see no value.

This was my second trip to Tokyo and also my second trip to 511. They have the best Kobe Waygu beef I have had the fortune of tasting. I like how they do the tasting menu with multiple small courses before the main. The other courses are very inventive and challenging and were completely different from the ones I had the year before. The wait staff are excellent an attentive. I will make sure to visit everytime I find myself in Tokyo.

By far the best experience around- the food of course is of the highest quality and presentation is amazing. Kyo's information on every course that was served was what really impressed us , she took her time to really guide us through the process. The Kobe course is the only way to dine at 511.

This restaurant was simply amazing and would highly recommend. The service definitely exceeded our expectations. From the moment we walked in, we were greeted by all the lovely staff members and felt like we were very welcomed. We felt like we were royalties. The food was spectacular and the flavours were very exotic. We came here for my friend's birthday and not only did they offer us a slice of cake for his birthday but he also received a souvenir on our way out. The service is definitely over and beyond expectations. Thank you for having us and I will definitely be recommending this place to all my friends and family.

My boyfriend and I had a great experience when we first went here, and decided to bring his Swedish friends to try Kobe for the first time. We all got the Japanese full course (with appetizers and little dishes with first-class presentation), and thoroughly enjoyed everything especially the main attraction-- Kobe beef steak of course!
Dessert was very Japanese though, a bit disappointed we got red beans instead of some decadent chocolate concoction...
I think the next time we come we're going to go for more grams than just 100g (when my boyfriend's mum will foot the bill hehehehe). And try the Western course this time!
Steak was perfectly cooked and service was above and beyond as usual. They were very patient and explained everything before serving, but knew when to back off and leave us to enjoy our food.
Looking forward to coming back!

Very delicious. We decided to go with the Japanese Kaiseki tasting menu to get a lot of variety. We were very pleased with our meal. Lots of delicious flavor and much variety. We upsized the steak in the tasting menu and we were glad we did. The Kobe steak is the best and the highlight. You can order ala carte also. The service was top notch. Great spot!

First experience of Kobe beef and that was great !
I took the 3500 Y lunch set with 100g Kobe beef : that was not that much, but so tasty ! I recommend this set to really discover the Kobe beef with all its savour and only its savour

For tourists willing to discover the taste of Kobe beef for a fair price, I highly recommend this restaurant.

I will come again !

Needed my Kobe beef fix, and based on the reviews my colleague and I tried Kobe Beef Kaiseki 511. Wonderful ambience, excellent service, and the main course of Kobe beef melted in my mouth. On the way out of the restaurant, we were presented with a nice gift as well. Would revisit Kobe Beef Kaiseki 511 again next time in Tokyo!

My wife and I came here to celebrate our third year anniversary. We weren't entirely sure what to expect since on the website it doesn't really require fancy attire, but the ambiance is definitely one of an upscale restaurant. Despite that, people are welcome to come in wearing a wide range of attire. The service was great and the staff are friendly, however it may have helped that we were making small talk in Japanese (service and questions about the food can and were answered in excellent English though!). The dishes were honestly hit and miss for us. Some of them were slightly salty or just decent, but the dishes with beef, particularly the steak, were absolutely worth the trip and the cost. Another note on the service. As noted above we came for our anniversary, but didn't mention that in the reservation. It came up briefly in the small talk we made and we didn't really think anything of it. The staff went out of their way to make a very professionally done (and cute) message on our dessert wishing us a happy anniversary. They definitely did not have to, but it was one of the many little things they did that made us really feel welcome and not just served.

I had the Kobe beef full course and it was fantastic. Really showcased the different cuts of the kobe beef. The service was impeccable and I was extremely impressed with the staff and the Chef whom came out at the end to show us the kobe beef. Overall, it was a quality experience and one that I would go again.

Tip: If you only want to try kobe beef I would recommend forgoing the course and ordering ala-carte, the steak and the beef sushi comes highly recommended!

My wife and I had the Japanese Kaiseki tasting course for dinner and the whole experience was excellent and deserves attention from the Michelin Guide. The chef used different parts of Japanese beef to prepare the various and delicious courses. All of the dishes were beautifully presented and the Kobe steak was definitely melt-in-your-mouth. The wait staff was very attentive and friendly and kept checking on us to ensure we were enjoying our meals. The dinner price is amazingly affordable compared to other restaurants that provide the same quality of meals and service. Will definitely return the next time we are in Tokyo. One issue we encountered was that the restaurant is below street level and requires you to walk down a set of stairs, which can be easily missed you don't pay attention to the restaurant's sign.
