    Best Yakitori in NY

    We went there with 4 Japanese friends and we all loved everything they served. Everything was fresh and made from scratch. We do appreciate what they do. Trust us ! If you seek for authentic yet best go check it out :)

    Not recommended

    Really dissapointed, was so looking forward to a great meal, sadly didn't go that way. Started with the Waygu beef, which was so dry we had to chew on it, and ofcourse we ordered 2 of these since we love Wagyu, what a waste. The chicken was so so, not bad but not a wow either, nothing to go back for. The veges are the only good thing here! The service was non existent, would be better if we could order and go pick it up from the grill ourselves. Don't waste you time and money here, there are a gazillion other places to eat in this wonderful city!!

    Very good but too expensive

    I agree with the reviewer below. The food is very good in my humble opinion but in the end it isn't worth the money. I feel bad saying anything bad about the service because they're really very nice but the waiter's English was a bit of a problem.

    tasty but overpriced

    We ordered the omakase and each item was pretty tasty (it came with about 10 skewers, a rice dish and a sorbet/ice cream. Yes, it is a little smoky, but not to the point where it really bothered me. I don't know if I would go back as it was a bit pricey (for meat on a stick).

    poor service

    Please don't read this review as someone who doesn't get it. I lived in Japan for a decade, I speak the language very well, and visit Japan with my spouse at least once a year. I know the difference between good and poor experiences in a Japanese restaurant. As I entered on a Monday at 6PM, I was told several times that they have NO SUSHI. I never asked for any, nor did I imply that I was there for sushi. I knew that it was a yakitori-ya, and that's why I went. I actually bring my own charcoal from Japan to make my own yakitori during the warmer months. Next I was seated in what was easily the worst seat in the restaurant, right near the kitchen - now I wouldn't have complained, except at this time there were no other customers in the restaurant. I could also understand if there were reservations that would be honored. It took about an hour and forty-five minutes for my meal - which was fair ... the thing is during this time only two other customers came in, tow Japanese expats who were sat at the best seats, and invited to drink with the rest of the staff. I was hurried through out my meal, and a waitress actually lifted the soy sauce to pour on my yakitori (WTF?) at one point. I over heard the conversations around me, and was disgusted by my treatment in this restaurant.

    Good value and good food

    An eatery which you would want to re-visit and enjoy the good food and genuine Japanese atmosphere.
