Tips

  • Oyako don with a runny egg is crazy delicious.
  • Best yakitori in the area
  • We had a lot of success giving our waiter a "budget" and asking him to bring out a bunch of wacky dishes. You can always order more after.
  • Seats at the counter facing the grill are great for solo diners, but be prepared to smell a bit smoky when you leave. - Inspector
  • Everything, but what's unexpected is the attention to authentic detail in their vegetarian and tofu appetizers. Really superb sunomono, fresh tofu, and any specials they offer.
  • Oyako don.
  • Get anything chicken! Chicken thigh, wings, etc. Too bad they don't have gyu-tan (beef tongue) here. Go to Yakitori Kokko in San Mateo for that :)
  • Oyako don can never go wrong. Love the half cooked egg! Sumika don is with teriyaki sauce instead of egg.
  • Charcoal-grilled meat & vegi with sake. Also love taste of Japanese apricot in Ochazuke. Come to the downtown before sun goes down and stroll around before you come to the restaurant!
  • Best lunch in Los Altos!
  • Order the fried chicken appetizer (Karage) - it's sooo good!
  • Go for lunch. It's an amazing deal, fresh and organic. Set lunch: $10 for salad, donburi, and drink. So much better than all those dive japanese restaurants.Best reasonable yakitori east of Osaka.
  • Excellent food! The eggplant and the grilled rice were amazing! Will be back soon!
  • Eggplant dengaku, quail egg skewers, frozen custard for dessert.
  • Oyako don always. Nankotsu (karaage or yakitori) is great when available. Get on the waitlist via Yelp and call ahead for dinner if you want to eat at a reasonable hour
  • Raw octopus, fried softshell crab and pork belly grill are very good. Long wait though. Recommend to make reservation for dinner
  • This is clearly sophisticated Japanese food but much like with Orenchi, which is owned by the same group, I don't quite get the hype. The food is well-cooked but underseasoned
  • Lunch special chicken Katsu was delish!
  • So so food but terrible service
  • Organic chicken karaage at its best - lightly battered with a balanced taste and a squeeze of lemon!
