Steak House Kizuna?

Has anyone been to this place in Lil Tokyo and tried their kobe beef steak? Any reviews?

  1. Yes, I've been there once and been trying to find a time to go back. Here's a link to a post with my reply in it (it's a ways down).

    I went with my wife for their lunch special and actually had their rib eye and it was great. I really hope they stay open for the next time I go.

    highly recommend.

      But is it really KOBE beef as it states? How can kobe cost $20? I'm lost...

        Apparently there are degrees of "Kobe-ness". Japanese native cattle (wagyu meaning something like domestic cow) grown in Japan, wagyu grown over here, and wagyu/angus hybrids. Decreasing order of expense, and influenced by the way the cattle are raised and brought to market.

          I don't know. I can't remember if it stated as Kobe beef. It was good though.
