"Orchid moon" is the English translation of Rangetsu, a Ginza restaurant founded in 1947 and still under the same family ownership. It specializes in sukiyaki and shabu-shabu, made with A5-grade Japanese wagyu beef and cooked at your table. There are many other dishes, too, on the English-language menu that includes photos, from yaki shabu-shabu (cooked on a grill at your table), and crab dishes (like the crab shabu-shabu set meal for ¥8,000) to bento, kaiseki, and more. The lunch sets are especially good deals, served until 4pm and offering steaks, shabu-shabu, and many other combinations. There's a sake bar in the basement stocked with more than 80 varieties from all over Japan, all of which you can also order with your meal no matter which floor you dine on.
