Incredible cuts of premium Japanese beef, grilled at your table with flair

Tatler Says

Any meat lover worth their own salt should have this yakiniku specialist on their radar. The restaurant’s zen-like décor is a cut above the city’s more dingy izakaya joints, with spacious booth seating, bleached wood decor and even a comfortable private room; most importantly, care has been taken to ensure it is properly ventilated. Although there is a good selection of seafood dishes, it really is the beef that is the main attraction; it is truly top-drawer stuff, with dozens of different cuts of meat and types of wagyu to pick from. Highlights include their signature “nikushouyaki” featuring a thin sirloin slice drizzled with a silky egg yolk that beautifully enhances the beef’s flavour, meltingly tender braised tongue served with a sweet shoyu dashi broth, and the Hida kurashita (chuck cut) that features an excellent balance of meat to fat, boosted by an extra umami hit from a dip into Nikushou’s homemade sesame soy sauce. Staff expertly grill beef at your table, ensuring it’s cooked to perfection every time, whilst also explaining the different cuts.

Tatler Tip

The five- or seven-course “Wagyu Yakiniku” sets are an excellent option for the indecisive – a selection of Nikushou’s signature beef cuts, including some that aren’t available separately on the a la carte.
