About

This restaurant is permanently closed. 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.

It was a quite nice experience trying a full set dining Kobe beef. Be prepared to spend ¥10,000+ for a person.

肉懐石へのこだわりに感心します。
サービスも頑張っておられる姿勢も感心します。
内装は少々ミスマッチ感はあります。
コースメニューの価格と会計の違いがあったので少し残念でした…

Spectacular site! I booked because it was my first trip to Japan and I wanted to try the real kobe meat in person. I was not disappointed at all. I highly recommend it, a must see if you come to Japan!

The moment we were received I felt like I was in a elegant restaurant. We went for my wife's birthday and after easily making a reservation, we were seated separately, greeted politely along the way. Each dish served with a detailed verbal explanation of the plates. My wife is 7 months pregnant and they informed us every step of the way of minor changes to avoid foods that may not be safe for her. They ended the night with a birthday announcement, and I've never been to a fancier, and rich environment.

10 out of 10 RECOMMEND!!

The whole experience was superb. From the moment we walked into the door until we left. The staff was very nice and professional, and the food was extremely good. The place itself was well designed too. If you’re going to throw a lot of money on a fancy dinner, this is the place to do it!

Overpriced and disappointing food, seemingly caters to unwitting tourists. The Kobe beef was good but not the best I've tasted in Japan and service was over the top to the point of being comical. Did not feel at ease.

The service was great so was the atmosphere. However it was the worst Kobe I have tried and I tried many. All the side dishes were pretty bad as well. Honestly it’s a tourist trap.

Lunch sets were amazing, especially the Kalbi-ju. Excellent value for such a great experience with unbelievable service. I almost felt bad for how low our bill was. My only regret was not trying the wagyu sukiyaki.

The beef was descent, but the ambiance was horrible and it felt like a tourist trap. Our hotel recommended it and we were very disappointed. I would recommend to find a more traditional place for Japanese beef.

Very good dining experience at Kobe Beef Kaiseki 511. If you prefer leaner meat though, then this type of beef isn't for you as there is a lot of fat throughout. Good experience all round though.

We were looking to find a good restaurant in Tokyo to try the famed Kobe beef and 511 didn’t disappoint. We all skipped the starter and went straight for the a la Carte beef and in Particular the 200g Kobe Sirloin. All side dishes are extra (about £6 pet portion) and are very small . We also order a the lobster as a side which at £15 seemed s relative bargain. The lobster is quite small but excellent so we’ll worth a try . The steak was everything you would imagine , very succulent and marbled with flavour. We shared a bottle of house champagne and one of us had a dessert with the total bill coming in at about £260 per head.

Very good restaurant for A5 Wagyu. Quiet restaurant with a sleek modern interior, quite good (young) wine list, food is thoughtfully prepared. Service is not quite as attentive as it should be for the expense, bring your wallet.

We went here when on our honeymoon in Tokyo. We had the Kobe Beef Steak Dinner Course for 17500Y which was worth every yen. All parts of the 5-course dinner were really good, beautifully plated and the Kobe Beef was as amazing as expected. With a loss of other explanations the meat really "melted" in your mouth. The staff was the most courteous, friendly and proffessional both of us have had the luck to be catered by. We have been to a few different Michelin Star-restaurants both home in Stockholm and in other countries but we were still totally blown away by the service, food, attention to detail and ambience of this place. If in Tokyo it's well worth a visit!

Awful food. Looked nice, but the flavours were horrible. The kobe beef steak was ok, but the kobe beef in the other dishes was overcooked. Seemed like they boiled it. The first three dishes were too cold, like they had taken it out directly from the refrigerator. We paid 20000 yen each, but I've had better meals at Seven Eleven.
