Wagyumafia is the brainchild of self-taught chef-turned-wagyu expert Hisato Hamada and entrepreneur Takafumi Horie. Paying homage to the famous Japanese Wagyu beef, the Riyadh spot is set to be a 14-seater culinary members club, serving up an Omakase menu using renowned butchery techniques.

Yakinikumafia is built on the Japanese concept of Yakiniku which translates to grilled meat cuisine. The venue is an authentic Japanese barbecue concept that pairs fire-grilled meats with an industrial, youthful ambience. The venue was designed by Wagyumafia. The appeal comes from the venue being one of the rare Japanese grill restaurants that explicitly serve wagyu. The restaurant will open for dinner only on weekdays, and lunch and dinner on weekends.
