Tips

  • Their yakitori is authentic japanese. yum yum.
  • 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!!!
  • Must orders: Beef tongue, grilled rice ball, gizzard, chicken karaage, bacon enoki, tori soboro don
  • Skin subpar, pork Belly and Kalbi are pretty good. They take reservations.
  • Skewers everything!
  • Get the Smelt!
  • Thoroughly indulged myself with calamari and multiple skewers (3 pieces each):quail egg wrapped in bacon (amazing), fish with cheese (good), pork belly with sauce (great), and beef tongue (excellent)
  • Try the black sesame ramen
  • 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.
