Yakiniku near Tokyo Dome

Near the JR Suidobashi(水道橋) Station and the Tokyo Dome (東京ドーム), there is an old and famous yakiniku restaurant named "Keijyo(京城)." The restaurant seems to get a name by only using Japanese branded beefs such as Matsuzaka-ushi(松阪牛) and Omi-gyu(近江牛) as yakiniku restaurant.

The restaurant's interior and atmosphere are...old:) The Showa (昭和)! The time of bubble economy(バブル)! Renovation is not enough and strange chandeliers are decorated on the wall...By the way, let's focus on yakiniku!! Some beef like carubi was tender and sweet as the feature of Matsusaka-ushi. But others...are so-so. Sorry to say, but tongue was not good and we left them.  

Except some good beef, I am a bit skeptical if they really use the branded beefs for all the plates. Or even if they use, they may buy low quality ones among the brands... This restaurant might have been so good twenty years ago cause competition was not so severe as today. We nowadays have a lot of good yakuniku restaurants with better atmosphere. 

The positive point is reasonable price. My rating is 2 out of 5. Gochiso-samadeshita!
