Foursquare Tips

  • Their yakitori is authentic japanese. yum yum.
  • Try the (Kawa) chicken skin EXTRA CRISPY!!
  • Try the Cartlage!
  • There's Yuzukosho on tap via the condiment holder on your table. YES. put it on everrrything.
  • a personal fav, the fish cake with cheese. everytime I order this, I try to find the cheese. seriously, where is it? it's there.... O_o
  • The buta bara (pig belly) is great. Just like Japan. A guilty pleasure
  • Great food and atmosphere!!! :) the owner and his co-workers are so nice and friendly!!!
  • Get the enoki bacon it is the best thing ever
  • Try the spicy miso pork, bacon wrapped cherry tomatoes, ginko nuts & shishito peppers!
  • Beef tongue skewers... get 'em!!!
  • Yakitori here is delicious!Mizuna salad greens go great with all the meat!
  • Reservation needed if you don't want to wait a really long time
  • Yakitori! Also raw octopus and squid! It's better than Mokutanya and Sumika.
  • Made a reservation earlier and get called less than 2 hours before the reservation that they cannot keep the reservation for us since there is a bigger group coming in for party... quite frustrating..
  • Yakitori sake
  • We waited over 45 minutes to get our food, which trickled in little by little over the next 40 minutes. Was disappointed by the slow service and extremely loud atmosphere. Food was good, though.
  • Make a reservation - just do it
  • Tsukune, tomato and bacon, eggplant are good
  • Love all the grill here. Very authentic!
  • Calamari is pretty amazing. If you like eggplant, I recommend the Dengaku Miso. Black sesame ramen is spectacular.
