    Come on a Monday or Tuesday evening for fresh $1 oysters. Get the Bershire Pork Belly. Great together. Also try the Grilled Unagi special when available.

    Everything was crazy good. The unagi and wagyu were amazing, the chicken thigh with wasabi paste has serious kick, and how can you go wrong with bacon wrapped anything?

    Eggplant , duck breast and wagyu with salt pepper not good. Fried tentacles , miso ramen, and cod belly were good. Purple yam chips were amazing

    The yakitori here is really good. Would recommend the wagyu beef and chicken liver, but skip the ramen.

    Great skewers. Great ramen. Great atmosphere. Mokutanya is the place where you wine(sake) and dine like tomorrow doesn’t exist.

    Awesome place if you want to drink and have munchies. Their skewers are cooked perfectly. Be prepared to spend a pretty penny.

    Great to find a Yakitori restaurant in the Bay Area. This one is very modern with glass partitions between the rooms.
