Yakiniku in Akasaka - please help!

I am looking for a great yakiniku place in Akasaka, not too expensive and good for a group of 7-8 people. I have my own favourite yakiniku places, but none is in Akasaka and I don't know the various Korean joints there very well. The people I am going with insist that they want to try a place in Akasaka.

The priorities are decent quality beef, a good atmosphere and reasonable prices (around 5-6 thousand per person would be great). Any suggestions most gratefully appreciated.

  1. How about Jojoen 游玄亭? I usually have yakiniku at Jojoen of Nishi Azabu branch but if you insist in Akasaka area, you may want to check out the Akasaka branch. Its website::

    Tabelog website also shows the top ranked yakiniku restaurants at Akasaka rated by its users. Jojoen Akasaka branch ranked no.10.

      Jojoen is really great, but the Akasaka branch is quite expensive (there are many branches of different price levels and standards) and the people I am going with need something a bit more moderate and Korean in atmosphere (those places are pretty much all run by Koreans, but Jojoen is very Japanese in comparison to many of the VERY Korean places in Akasaka..

    2. One word: Futon. From the moon, it looks like it is in Akasaka.

        Yes, from the moon... Futon was actually discussed (you know there is no better place in Tokyo at 4am) but by Akasaka, they meant Akasaka.

          A very popular Korean run place is Hyung Boo (sp). AFAIK it was around 5-7 a person for a moderate eater, perhaps more if they eat like you however.

          There's a Korean dish involving boiled/steamed fatty pork used as a wrapper for kimchi and other things. It's really good at Hyung Boo.

            This one, right?
            The Korean expats I know seem to like this place and especially its delivery service.

              That's it, it's more expensive than most of the other places close by, but it's pretty good.
