Satou Steak House 2009/7/21 13:57
Tokyo 23-ku
we are planning to go Satou Steak House on Oct 12, Monday, which happens to be a public holiday.

Is the steakhouse going to be open? Please help. we don't want to make an empty trip to Kichijoji.

Thanks so much

The restaurant does not seem to have any closing days during the entire year. It is open from 11:00 to 21:00.

That's good news to hear. Hopefully, we will not get ourselves stuck in a long queue.

I heard the beef balls that are sold below are a MUST TRY!

Is it true?

Yes the beef ball is worth to try but unless you order a set lunch of over Yen 5,000, don't expect the quality to be good. For prices below thatlevel, you can get better beef quality at Mo-Mo-Paradise(all you can eat at less than Yen 2,000)or most Korean BBQ restaurant, such as the one I tried at Ueno for Yen 2,000 only. It was said that the restaurant used black-fur Japanese cow. It melted inside my mouth and the taste was of course superb.

Opposite to the Central exit of the Ueno JR Station, you will see the OICITY department store. Beside it is the narrow passage named k. There are shops, restaurants on both sides. Walk straight along this passage for about 5 minutes and you'll see the Korean BBQ restaurant named zR on your left hand side. It is at the corner and is comparatively bigger than other restaurants around. More seats are available on the 1st floor. You will find choices of black-fur beef on the menu. Last time I tried the 1980 and I was more than satisfied. Of course you can try the higher grade beef for 2980 only. Also, the ox-tail soup (white in color) and the deep-fried rolls with seafood or vegetables (`a~ at 1,200) are unforgettable too.

I believe that menu is good throughout the day. For me, I had dinner there with the said price.

Hi TW

I read somewhere that the dinner set is JPY 8000, but thanks for your info, at least now I know there is no need to rush for lunch.

Hi Apple 76,

Just to remind you that the price I mentioned is not a "set". It does not include soup or drinks. In fact, rarely do Korean restaurants offer set meals. The black-fur beef items appear on the lower right hand side of the BIG menu.

Good luck.
