The place was fairly comfortable and classy, with 4-5 tables widely spaced out and with good use of partitions and pillars - a very private "club" indeed. There is also a teppanyaki area and a sushi counter area.

There are some fixed a la carte items such as sushi, sashimi, tempura, different types of grilled meat, various types of okonomiyaki...etc.

The price range is quite extreme. One the one hand, there is Okonomiyaki at about $70 and 5 pieces of Kyoto ball shaped sushi at $88. On the other hand, they serve grilled Kobe beef at $880 and 16 pieces of assorted sushi at $880 as well.

What's special about this club is that they have specialist menus that rotate between different Japanese prefectures. For the time being, they are doing a Tochigi prefecture menu which appears to include a number of regional signature cuisines. That's what we've ordered. We've also ordered a number of items a la carte.

From left to right:

Lotus root: Crunchy yet not oily at all. The grated tomato powder sprinkled on the lotus roots was an interesting idea.

White kuraage with persimmon: Couldn't really taste much of either ingredients. It's interesting to see persimmon being used in cuisines though.

Assorted vegetable in fish stock: My wife snapped it out rather quickly so I didn't get to try this.

Ayu: The ayu was probably simmered in a mixture of sweet soy sauce and dashi. The meat was firm and the taste was on the sweet side. An interesting start for the meal.

We ordered one oyster sashimi and one grilled oyster. The oyster was big and fresh. It's on the creamy side. The seawater taste was light. Mixed well with ponzu. Fans of Kumamoto oysters might like this.

The taste of the grilled oyster was far more intense. I find it slightly salty though. The timing was good as it was still juicy but I still prefer the sashimi version.

Buri and Chu Toro: Both of those were excellent.  The buri was fresh and the texture of the meat was very firm. The chu toro was had excellent umami which lasted for a long while. The quality of the sushi was even better than Ginza Iwa and Sushi Sase.

Two different types of shoyu were served. The one depicted in the photo above was made by monks in an ancient temple. The temple itself is a world heritage and the shoyu was used as offerings to emperors in the old days. 

This was rather sweet and was bursting with umami - the taste was remotely similar to a type of premium double fermented soy sauce. The other one is sashimi shoyu. The taste of the latter soy sauce is much deeper and saltier than the former.

This is a regional specialty of Kyoto. It resembled normal Edomae sushis other than the shape and condiments (uni, ikura, lime and herbs) placed above the piece of fish. The netas were scallop with lime, salmon with ikura, hamachi with herbs, one white bodies fish with uni and akami with herbs. Worth a try.

The clear broth, dashi, was excellent. The clean aftertaste was exceptional. The white item in the middle was yuba, i.e tofu skin. I didn't try it but my wife seemed happy with it.

Grilled essence of crab with crab meat and sesame tofu. The essence of crab was rich and the crab meat was sweet. There was also a thick slice of chewy sesame tofu beneath the crab miso. Recommended.

Seiro means steamed basket. This came in a stone pot intead. Anyway, it meant that the Tochigi beef and the vegetables were steamed. The flavour of the rich dashi entered the smooth silk tofu and assorted vegetables nicely. Simply dip the beef into the ponzu sour sauce or the red wine salt provided.

This is a Kyoto style pancake. The texture was similar to a Chinese "Bok Chaan" - i.e. Chinese Pan Cake.  There was some egg and plenty of chopped spring onions inside the pancake. I find this a simple and wholesome food. Worth a try.

Ususally Hanami-dori (a branded chicken from Fukuoka) has a mild but noticable chicken aroma and the texture is usually good. However, this tatsudaage was fairly normal stuff. The batter wasn't too crunchy and the meat wasn't that juicy as well.  The oba in the salad was a nice touch though.

A very authentic type of hotpot - only that the pot is a piece of paper. Assorted vegetables with two large pieces of fish similar to Buri with fragrant citrus aftertaste (because of the dashi with yuzu). The carrot is also worth a mention. It's called "Kin toki Ninjin". The carrot was bursting with natural sweetness. I've never had anything like that. Definitely worth a try.

The balance between lean meat and fat was great. The flavour was on the rich side with a lot of umami. Some may find it slightly salty though. I enjoyed it. Worth a try.

I don't eat beef nowadays so what I'm telling you now is just hearsay.

The Tochiki beef was fattier when compared to the Kobe beef. There is no suji (tendon) so it will melt in your mouth.
The Kobe beef was also soft but with some tendon in it which gives a different texture. It was even fresher than the Tochigi one. My wife prefers Kobe beef.

A small stove was provided so you could heat up the beef to your desired level, which I think is a very nice touch.

A number of condiments were provided, namely, ponzu, sesame sauce, red wine salt, shoyu and wasabi.

Dessert: famous tachigi strawberry cheesecake. I'm not a big fan of it so I can't give you an objective opinion. The strawberry Ice cream was very good according to my wife.

Conclusion:

The bill came down to about HK$1,300 per person, which I think is exceptional value for money.

Great food quality, private setting and dedicated service. 

Definitely a thumbs up.
