While visiting Japan, the managing partners fell so deeply in love with the food when they visited Tajimaya in Osaka that it compelled them to ask the owners if they could bring the restaurant to the Philippines. Good thing they said yes!

Not all the Philippine branches of Tajimaya are the same, however. The Mall of Asia branch is open to all-you-can-eat diners every day of the week; the Rockwell branch has all you can eat for lunch on weekdays but their real specialty is the wagyu; and the Baguio branch is the only one that has tempura on the menu.

To get the perfect charred taste, Tajimaya uses a charcoal grill for all their barbeque. While you might leave smelling a little smokier than you came in, it’s well worth it!

In addition to Tajimaya’s superior Japanese meats, they have an extensive selection of whiskeys from Japan and offer lunch sets as well!
