    This joint kills me. Must get the hot pot, their sashimi apps are great too. Highly recommend the prix fixe which is a great deal and a TON of food. Great for bringing picky asian parents too.

    Had grape cider😋, Hakata tonton hot pot😋, and green tea tofu😋for dessert. Everything tastes perfect. Too bad we had too much food earlier that day…Def will come back again and try out other dishes!

    Make sure you get a reservation. They get busy. Go for the hotpot, it's amazing. But a very large serving. Luckily you have the option to add rice/noodles to make risotto/ramen with whatever remains.

    Like their any pigs feet dishes. The sauce can be various. Very authentic, very Chinese like favor too. I have to say. The sashimi is awesome. I have very high standard on sashimi, they passed.

    It’s best to go with a small group of friends, but make sure to get reservations. Your best bet to get a spot is after 10 p.m. This cozy Japanese eatery only seats about 30 guests. Read more

    The hot pot at Hakata Tonton is the perfect remedy for winter. Get the Tonton Hotpot, filled with vegetables, dumplings, and an addictive broth, or the full tasting menu if you're really hungry.

    Favorite japanese place in the city hands down. If not getting the hot pot (or as an addition) then be sure to try the garlic fried rice and the yuzu tonton pork! Gyozas are great too

    The hotpot is to die for! Gyoza was out of this world too. They told us not to leave a tip as the prices reflect tips but we thought that was overly generous as prices were really reasonable.

    Start your meal with Pigs feet( Grilled Pork Tonsoku), famous Gyoza. Must order Hakata Tonton hotpot. Go after 10pm for a small or no wait.

    The grilled miso yuzu pork belly is one of the best things ever – it just melts in your mouth. Okonomiyaki, gyoza, and shabu shabu are all great as well!
