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 staff is great. They provided an exceptional experience that I was taken by surprise for and the knowledge they present and quality of the service. Everything was top notch and for the value you are getting it seems like it was almost a steal since everything from start to end you are taken on a wonderful journey and experience.

Fantastic Kobe beef, classy ambiance, and superb service and hospitality! I celebrated my birthday here, and the staff helped make it such a pleasant experience. The food was great; not only was it delicious, but it was also presented very artfully. The servings may look small, but I left feeling very full. Thank you for a memorable dinner!

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.

The BEST restaurant in Tokyo, Japan for authentic Kobe beef experience. Highly respected by locals, ex-pats, and foreign visitors to Tokyo, my local friends were delighted to gather for lunch (or dinner) at 511. We experienced lunch and by every means, an authentic Japanese experience !

Do NOT miss the opportunity to experience 511 when in Tokyo.

It was a family trip. Kobe beef was on our bucket list and we missed the reservation on the first 2 destinations at different restaurants because we had to make reservations 2 to 3 days in advance. Finally we made it for lunch at Kobe Beef Kaiseki 511. The service was excellent. The staff of as very professional and their English was proficient. Our hostess was awesome! She recommended in detail which cuts
and grades would fit our taste. We ordered both the sirloin and tenderloin cuts but the sirloin was out of the world! It just melted in your mouth!!! At the end of the meal, the Master Chef came out and introduced himself and showed us a sample of the raw genuine steak. What a memorable meal: best service and best Kobe beef! We would recommend this restaurant (you should make reservation in advance). We would dine here again on our next trip to Japan!!!

The Kobe beef tasting menu was amazing. I went there with my family and we all loved it! The tasting menu comes with a 100g Kobe beef steak but that's a little small so we all upgraded to the 150g steak...it was so worth it!

We were greeted by a handful of very welcoming professional staff. The Complete kobe beef course which we ordered was very creatively and aesthetically presented. I found most very tasty except for the kobe beef shank with domyoji . I especially enjoyed the flame- baked kobe beef steak. Really does melt in your mouth. The kobe beef sushi was also excellent. Yes, it was expensive but worth it. Would I order the complete course again if I came back? Probably not but I would definitely order the flame- bake kobe steak a la carte because it was that yummy

On my family's recent trip to Tokyo we decided we wanted to experience Kobe beef. I did some research and heard great things about 511. The service was great, but the steak was unbelievable! I now know what all the fuss is about! We chose to go at lunch on a Saturday to help keep costs down and it was also nice and quiet. We actually debated whether to go back again!

Had an amazing time tasting one of the finest of Kobe beefs. Other than the fact that it was a little towards the pricy side but overall a good experience. The sirloin they served definitely put "kobe beef" at a proper standard.

My wife and I went here while staying at the Capitol Hotel Tokyo. It was a short 1/2 mile walk to the restaurant. We walked past it a couple times because it's actually underground. The restaurant is beautiful. The Kobe was delicious and the staff were all great and friendly. Their command of the English language was exceptional. From the pickles to the miso soup, the experience was great and we will be back.

What a delightful and delicious evening! I highly recommend Kobe beef Kaiseki 511 for both the quality of the food and the service. This is not the type of restaurant to go to for a "value meal" - although the pricing is quite reasonable for the quality you receive. We've had fabulous dinners here a number of times and always leave wanting to come back again soon. Keep in mind this is true Kobe beef of the highest quality. There are just a handful of restaurants in Tokyo that serve this type of beef - and this restaurant nails it!

Japanese Kobe Tasting menus was not memorable
But had to order more of the sirloin : with each bite it was better than the last.

This is the best kobe you can buy and the first sensation when it enters your mouth is the most exceptional.

The house wine menu is disappointing

Outstanding service and very creative ways to eat Kobe beef! I got the complete kaiseki dinner and it was a delicious one-of-a-kind experience with variety and quality in every dish. The Kobe beef was definitely tender and nicely marbled as advertised. The spongey soy sauce that goes with the flame-broiled steak tastes phenomenal as it melts on and compliments the meat perfectly. I also was pleasantly surprised by the turtle meatball soup. Although the price is a little high, you can't go wrong with this unique dining experience when quality and customer service is more important to you than the cost.
