  • Beef with garlic, sausages and chicken liver are delicious!
  • Pricey & too small portions!! Service is good, the servers are nice & friendly. If you really wanna get full, be prepared to spend at least $50/pax. Don't forget to order the green tea creme brulee!!!
  • skewers + beer such a good combo.
  • Everything is good here. From the chicken liver to chicken skin to bacon steak to sea urchin rice hot pot. Do the damn thang y'all. Warm sake for the mood, ya dig
  • I could probably eat a half dozen dishes of their Green Tea Creme Brle. So good.
  • Izakaya perfection in the SJ! Skewer dishes are amazing here. Order the Premium Plum Wine.
  • I liked it, but didnt love it. Its also a little expensive to get full while youre here.
  • Ordered sweet potato fries - got meticulously hand cut Japanese sweet potatoes covered in brown butter. Amazing. Also the yakitori is awesome - kalbi with garlic and the chicken thigh
  • Beef skewers and Yu Dofu uni hotpot
  • The best yakitori in town. Open until midnight - icing on the cake :)
  • Get the seasonal uni ikura rice stonepot ($30) Eat it 2 ways: first stir it like a crispy bimbimbap and then add in the consumme and make it a chazuke congee. I can eat this everyday!
  • food and service are excellent, if go later evening less crowd
  • Delicious yakitori!!
  • Best chicken thighs! Crispy skin on the outside, moist and juicy on the inside. Also their Tori Zosui is good and so is their katsu hotpot (which is seasonal)
  • Solid yakitori offering. All the normal items, a bit on the expensive side, especially since each order is only one skewer.
  • Check out Gaku as seen on Bizarre Foods America
  • I normally love all the fat I can get, but the chicken skin was too overwhelming for me. The chicken thighs, hearts, breast, and pork belly were great!
  • The grilled meats are delicious
  • mocha pudding is great here
  • Best yakitori I've ever had! You can't go wrong here. Try the Fatty Salmon! Seared at your table..
