Our Japanese wagyu are imported directly from farms across Japan by Zen-Noh, a Japanese collective, and is the highest quality wagyu available in the world with an A5 grading, and features luxurious umami flavor blended with an intense buttery finish.
Japan's beef grading scores range from A1 to A5, with A1 being the lowest and A5 being the highest grade. The higher the amount of fat marbling the meat, the higher the score. Our Thin Sliced New York Cut Japanese wagyu has heavy marbling throughout giving it that rich, buttery flavor, and it's the reason why our wagyu is highly sought out by chefs and foodies everywhere.
I used a torch when preparing the Wagyu Thin Sliced Beef served as nigiri, and the flavor was very savory.
Melts like butter
Thin slice wagyu
It would be good for shabu shabu but not for pan fry.
Thank you for your feedback! It has been noted and will be shared with our quality and products team.
Husband kept saying ‘this is so good” all throughout dinner. And would bring it up days after. We love wagyu, especially A5 Japanese wagyu. It’s pretty special indeed, but we don’t wait for an occasion, just enjoy it. Fast, simple to prepare and delicious!

Smooth and taste like butter
My order arrived on time and the packing of the goods were excellent. I asked for dry ice for the fresh seafood. As a first timer we are pleased and our visitors from San Diego were totally delighted and have asked where I ordered so I recommended to visit you guys there in Cali. Anyways, I used japanese style cooking called ABURI using a torch (ABURI WAGYU) and ohhh boy they were delicioso, buttery and perfect paired up w/ginjo sake. I like using the torch because you can control how you want your meat done and the fat came out charred which we liked so much.I’m ordering another one this week.
My 2021 Christmas Gift was the Best
For sure very thin slices, first cooking method was in a non stick pan. Amazing flavor. We then used a hand held propane torch over a dinner plate I rendered the fat edge to crispy state and then flamed over the rest. Wow. The fat acted like bacon and the juice's were poured over basmati rice. There was nothing left. We also got the tuna belly. I spent a lot of $ on sushi in my life time and this was the absolute best I ever tasted. It was only a week ago and were reordering. The butcher in town carries top of the line meats and fish. But I am switching to Riviera for these types of food.
We also dipped the wagyu in our homemade Ell sauce and Yakiniku sauce.
New year’s Sukiyaki dinner 😋
Purchased, and used for annual New Year’s Sukiyaki dinner! Worth every penny, and is far, far superior to the standard beef you buy at your Japanese market for Sukiyaki!
Will order again, for next year’s New Year’s Day Sukiyaki! Can’t wait!
Fantastic A5 Japanese Wagyu Thin Sliced Beef
It was great
A5 Wagyu 101
This was a great intro to A5 Wagyu. Very simple to prepare: just put on a sizzling hot cast iron pan and season with salt & pepper. My guests loved it.
It’s a good way to try it out before investing in a big/expensive cut of A5.
Almost like butter
It just melt in your mouth... almost like butter.
Make sure not to over cook, 10 seconds, that's all you need.
