MANPUKU, which means “to be happy with a full stomach” in Japanese, brings interactive Japanese yakiniku dining to Dallas with its first Texas restaurant, slated to open on Lower Greenville June 29.

We were first established in 1948 at the heart of Tokyo’s food hub. The restaurant curated its original, and now signature-styled dish, “Negi-Shio” meat, which has now become the standard of Japanese BBQ “yakiniku” dining.

As a pioneer of yakiniku with now more than 70 years of history, MANPUKU brings you the authentic “Taste of Tokyo” experience focuses on bites of raw protein and vegetables cooked tableside over small grills and eaten fresh and hot.

    My sons 8th birthday and he wanted to make his own food so I thought this would be a great place to come . After reading almost every review . The food was great , drinks really good . The only complaint I may have is that as we were leaving the entire staff was just staring until we left which I found very strange but it her than that 10/10.

    None of us liked the beef soup. Our waiter barely came around check in on us. No one introduced us to the concept. But aside from that , it was lovely. Ya’ll got quality meats ! The cuts were really good!

    We went there to give this place a try because the pictures looked good in Instagram. The food looks good in the picture, but don’t taste good at all. No flavor for most items we ordered. The dressing for the table is on sweeter side. The portions are small for the price.

    Great food and experience. If you've never been to Yakiniku Grill, ask for advice. A lot to choose from and having an experienced waiter like we did helps. I'd give the restaurant a 5 but my oyster was not fresh. Great experience overall.

    Very great! We got the classic US beef tasting and it was very filling and delicious! Plenty of food, great value, and you certainly will not leave hungry. If I had one negative, it would just be that the spicy beef soup did not have a very distinct or obvious flavor. Aside from that, we thoroughly enjoyed our experience and the ambience at the restaurant. Perfect for a semi casual or more formal evening.

    The word that came to mind immediately was "pretentious." It's not a fancy place, and people were generally dressed for the beach in shorts, t-shirts, flip-flops, etc. But the attitude gave off a pretentious vibe. First, it was very noisy in there. All the sounds were competing. Couldn't hold a conversation across the table. Second, you cook your own meat. So, a small piece of American Wagyu Filet was $38, and you have to cook it at your table. It was tasty yes, but for $38? Pretentious. We also had a variety of sides. The kimchi was excellent - not too spicy. The Manpuku salad was nothing special. The wagyu/uni appetizer was overpriced. Three little pieces. Tasty, but not worth the cost. Asparagus was nice. We also had the salmon/avocado tartare, and it wasn't enough salmon. And it was an avocado paste. Regular sushi restaurants do it better. The crab ceviche was nice. All in all, the food was good, not spectacular, didn't like having to cook our own steak, very noisy. We probably won't be back.

    The house sauce is not my taste. It is like bad ponzu sauce. Lack of sauce choice . I ended up asked for regular soy sauce Cabbage salad is soggy Kobe beef is a bit chewy.

    Actually pretty disappointed. We had a party of 6 for my brother-in-law's 21st birthday. There was no recognition of his birthday at all. We ordered the omakase and when they brought the meats, all he did was set it down and tell us the timings (which would have overcooked the beef if inexperienced). No explanation of what the meat was or the toppings. My husband and I have experience with cooking KBBQ, so we were familiar but the rest of his family was not. With managing two burners, my husband had to stand and help the other side of the table while I managed my side. The waiter didn't come over to help at all until the last bit. There was also only one other party in the restaurant when we first got there... For $50/person, we expected more help and more explanation of the food. We also had a reservation, so they knew a larger party was expected. My husband and I had previously been here and the server was amazing. He wouldn't let us cook our own food and described each cut of meat and the sauces and the toppings and how they complimented each other. It was a full experience which is what we wanted to share with our family and the birthday boy. This experience was the complete opposite.

    The only thing that was good was the wagyu. The oysters did not taste fresh at all. In fact they came out lukewarm at best. The garlic fried rice tasted as if the cook wasn’t even trying. An afterthought really. Would not recommend for the price. The waiter was dope though

    18th Anniversary! This place is da’ bomb. Splurge & get a “tasting.” Multi-course meal with a bit of everything. Japanese BBQ I believe is the genre. Interactive experience where you even grill your own meat (with instructions). Concept is outta Tokyo. We loved it.

    Overall my experience at Manpuku was okay. The service was very slow. We ordered our drinks before deciding what to order for food and the came over 10 minutes later. The restaurant wasn’t busy at all. The second round of drinks took even longer. The server asked us if we wanted her to clean the grill to keep on making our meat and we said yes please. She forgot about it and never did. She was never rude, I just think she was a little distracted. I would go back and give it another try though with a different server.
