Unbelievable cost performance! An A5-rank Kurogewagyu-beef lunch set for 1300yen 1500yen! in Roppongi.

If you are looking for the best lunch deal with a great traditional Japanese lunch experience, come here. This place is so popular that even though we arrived here by 11:40am, only 10 minutes after they opened, it was already full. We waited about 40 minutes until we got a seat, and many people were giving up standing in line as an employee came out to tell them how long it would be until the next seating. It’s nice because most of the seating is in private rooms with a traditional tatami setting.

Places like this are popular for a reason. How can you offer something like this for only 1300yen 1500yen! The meat was a little rare for my taste but my friends all loved it. You start by tasting the beef on it’s own first. Then, you’re supposed to enjoy it along with the condiments that come with it on the side. As you eat your rice, you’ll discover another layer of meat underneath it. After some time the servers bring you more rice to finish off your dish as Hitsumabushi (ochazuke style). The hot dashi poured over the rice and meat is like an entirely new dish. YUMM. Definitely give this a try if you’re in the area, you won’t regret it.

Note: Closed on Sundays. Lunch service: 11:30am-2pm (Often closes early as the lunch set sells out)

Update: Looks like their Hitsumabushi lunch set now costs 1300yen (May, 2014).

  1. Hi Maki-san,

    I just discovered your website, thank you for such beautiful writing and photos.

    I will be travelling to Tokyo next month and would like to know how food allergies are dealt with in Japan. I have allergies to all nuts (tree nuts, peanuts), shrimp, lobster and crab. I think I stay away from the shellfish but it’s harder with peanut oil or hidden nuts. Do you have any advice for traveler with food allergies?

    Thank you so much

  2. Hi,

    These pictures made me order your book. Thanks so much. Do you think i’ll have any problems ordering food since I only speak English? Do you have any tips? I’m planning on just showing some of your pictures to them if needed. Is that OK? Thanks again!

  3. Hi Maki-san,

    I’ll be heading to Tokyo in July with my wife, and would love to go to Matsurokuya for lunch.

    However, my wife is a non-beef taker, so I would like to know if the restaurant has non-beef options for lunch?

    • Hi Jonathan,

      The only other lunch option at this place seems like it’s their “Oyakodon + Soba Noodle Set” (地鶏の親子丼と山形板蕎麦) for 1100yen. Oyakodon is made with chicken.
