Ryuen is one of the only restaurants in Fukuoka City, where you can enjoy authentic, exquisitely marbled Kobe beef. Have a date or a special day to mark? Come dine leisurely on a yakiniku-style course as you gaze over the neon-lit Naka River from the chic interior. You can also try the sub-zero aged Black Wagyu Beef, a Ryuen original. No matter which meat you choose, the fun part is trying all the different sauces to see what you like best: sweet, spicy, lemon, salt and wasabi. So, if you want to treat yourself to the pinnacle of Japanese beef, look no further.
