    Not Recommended

    Expensive, small portion and the food... you can find better quality for lower price in other japanese rest.

    Rolls were a little different than we have back home but were very tasty. The miso soup was also delicious

    fun atmosphere, pricey

    good wait service and interactive atmosphere. food portions very small, but nice presentation. was decent but agree- can find better food at cheaper prices. you pay mostly the the location and atmosphere. cool bathroom / toilets.

    not a great value

    Food is fine but its waaaaay too expensive. $11 for a plain green starter salad? A la carte beef skewers were $45 and not so large. Kind of gimmicky interactive atmosphere. Would not go back. Could eat at much better places for the price.

    Real "country style" Japanese

    Great food and great entertainment. All foods are fresh and well prepared. Delicious. It could be a bit pricy, but if you choose wisely, it's worth it. They have Mochitsuki (pounding rice cake) entertainment at dinner time and my friend and I had awsome time making the cake! The original Tokyo branch is known for Hollywood stars' favorite.

    The food is good but not great. For the money (i paid almost 150 for 2 ppl), you can get a lot more elsewhere. Their BBQ wasnt as good as the yakitori thats in St Marks. It's disappointing as the location is great for me. Oh well.

    Disappointing lunch!

    I was very excited about the opening of Inakaya because I work in the New York Times Building. Having eaten there once, I can pretty much guarantee I will never go back. The robota tasting menu was boring, the portions small, the food either over or under cooked and the service poor. Our server had no knowledge of the menu and was unable to steer first-timers through the experience. Skip Inakaya and go to one of the other Japanese BBQs in the City.
