With Mouriya's vast experience of more than 130 years, you know you're in good hands!

Tease your taste buds with Kobe Beef - a prized Japanese delicacy that is highly sought after by the international community, especially among beef aficionados throughout the world.

The term “Kobe Beef ” is one of the most famous - almost mythical - terms in the world of food.

For beef to qualify as Kobe Beef, certain criterias must be met. It is distinguished as a tender, flavourful meat that is well marbled with fat. A simple way to understand Kobe Beef is that it is a brand name for A4 and A5 beef that comes from Hyogo prefecture in Japan.

If you’re wondering where to satiate yourself with the highest quality of Kobe Beef , Mouriya Honten and its other branches is the best place to go! Whether you dine alone or in the company of your loved ones, they promise a never changing taste to uphold their concept of extending an unforgettable experience to their first time costumers and have earned the trust of their regulars on a constant, unfailing basis.

As we all know, experience and passion brings forth outstanding results. The same goes for Mouriya that has been dealing with Kobe beef at its main restaurant since the 18th year of the Meiji era (1885 AD). They are true experts that aim to protect the trust they have accumulated over the years.

The wooden and stone interior of their restaurant allows you to feel the history of Mouriya while savouring the flavour of each mouthful in an elegant ambience.

Customer satisfaction is what they strive for when it comes to serving every customer that walks into any Mouriya branch.

Apart from providing meat of the finest quality in order to bring gratification to you, you’ll be pleased to taste exquisite Kobe beef that has been strictly selected.

Kobe Beef is usually served as steaks, shabu shabu (thin slices of meat quickly boiled in a broth) or sukiyaki (meat slices simmered in a hot pot). Another way to enjoy Kobe Beef is at a teppanyaki restaurant, where a chef grills the meat on an iron plate in front of his or her guests.

Now, beef lovers can enjoy some authentic Kobe beef in Kyoto through Mouriya’s new branch, Mouriya Gion. Mouriya Gion is a teppanyaki style restaurant and is the fifth Mouriya location.

Leaving Kobe for the first time and opening a restaurant in Kyoto Gion, they have paid extra attention to everything from the interior to the tableware, in order to ensure that they provide the best of everything to their customers.

As for ingredients, Mouriya focuses on local products in Kyoto including those from historical and renowned shops.

They continue to exceed customers’ expectations in every possible way, and unceasingly, provide authentic Kobe beef from Kobe -the birthplace of teppanyaki in Kyoto -the city that is ranked as the highest beef consumption in Japan.
