"Japanese restaurant 2014 popular with foreigners" was announced on TripAdvisor, a travel word-of-mouth site. Based on the non-Japanese word-of-mouth evaluations posted during the year from April 2013 to March 2014, the rankings up to the 30th place are published.

The first place was "Matsuzaka Beef Yakiniku M Hozenji Yokocho Store (Osaka City, Osaka Prefecture)". "The fat-laden meat melted in my mouth, and the lean meat was very tender. What a beef tastes like this!" "Excellent Excellent !! (Great! Great! Great!)" "Dripping just by remembering There are many reviews about the shock and joy of encountering "Wagyu" such as "Wagyu!"

In addition to the quality and taste of the food, the interior of the restaurant, the staff's service such as preparing an English menu for people who do not understand Japanese, and trying hard to communicate even if they are not good at English. It has become clear that consideration is also a popular secret. There was also an episode that "I had a hard time finding a store, and when I called, the store staff came to look for us."
