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.
I truly wish there were vegetarian options here. I know they specialize in pork, but any menu options that aren't pork or beef would be nice at least.
Must make a reservation!
Hakata Ton Ton is regional food from Southern Japan and the birthplace of tonkotsu ramen. It might be strange for non-Asians but I love this place.
Everything is amazing. The hotpot is the best. Great for a healthy hearty meal.
Make a reservation, get the monkfish liver, enjoy the pig feet hot pot, and have a pez from the friendly waitstaff.
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!
The pigs trotter (tonsoku;豚足) what they proudly recommended, was too much jelly like textured. Avoid if you don't want that.
Nigori Sake. Soft textured and sweet taste at first, then bold and strong at last.
Tried both the detox & spicy hot pots, and the broths were so good & the veggies fresh. A little slow but great service!
Amazing hotpot broth. For dessert definitely get the black sesame ice cream and creme brulee!
Sesame ice cream and mochi dessert. Soo good!!!!
Hot pot yummm
Overall a delicious experience. Had the set menu, came w/ 5 apps, hot pot & dessert. Sesame ice cream was so good!
Don't leave this place without trying the garlic fried rice.
It's good pig feet shatbu hot pot but the portion it's a bit small and not very cheap
gotta get the pig feet...best thing on the menu.
Hakata Ton Ton hot pot and spicy tuna carpaccio were delicious!
Creme brûlée with black sesame ice cream is amazing, the ice cream is made in-house.
Pig feet. Do it. 👍🐷🐽
everything i had was amazing. i want to come back and try everything on the menu
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
Get the hakata tonton hot pot obviously. Add rice/egg to the broth at the end for some kind of bibimbap like dish.
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!
Reservation is a must. Hakata hot pot was delicious! Be prepared to sweat a lot.
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.
Get the hot pot!
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.
The spicy tuna carpaccio is served with a lightly sweet ponzu, crispy garlic, and scallions, and it's the best thing I ate here
Service takes forever and in the summer it's about 1000 degrees inside.
Pork belly skewer with garlic sauce was amazing.
Food is great. Personnel is amazingly kind. Love this place.
Try the Bibimbap - Sucked up all that hotpot goodness
Try the Grilled Tonton Pork With Spicy Garlic Sauce - Grilled Pork Tonsokuwith spicy garlic sauce. Yum
Try the Gyoza - Soo good. It had pork and chives
Try the Hakata Tonton Hot Pot - A specialty of Hakata, Japan. Collagen broth, tofu, dumplings, vegetables, berkshire pork belly and tonsoku. Love it
Try the Atlantic Salmon Carpaccio - With mesclun, salmon roe, and lemon dressing. Interesting flavor
Try the Muscat Cider - Yum from japan
arguably the best pork belly buns in nyc
the pork buns are better than ippudo's
Have the salmon carpaccio and then go get your butt washed and dried by their Japanese toilet seat.
Kampachi too salty today...
kampachi air ship from Japan
Make sure you check out the bathroom! More equipped than most high end restaurants.
Definitely order the Fried Chicken and the hot pot with the pork belly. Best meal I've had in NYC in a long time and that's saying something considering that Restaurant week just ended.
Hot pots are a must. The spicy tuna carpaccio is one of the best things I ever tasted.
