    Excellent yakitori! Grab a few orders per person and munch away. Loved the chicken hearts.

    Meat lovers combo = 3 unique and delicious skewers. Their #karaageramen was also good. The broth was not as thick as other places. Still good, just different. Will return soon. So good!

    Delicious yakitori. If you want to try the Japanese quality, go and grab some of their recommendations.

    Yakitori ❤️

    Amazing authentic talk tori with a spin. The ramen is also great. I recommend to come here early because there's only room for about 10 people in the restaurant. Definitely worth the wait!

    Pork belly and steak yakitori, pan-fried Mochi wrapped in seaweed, gyoza, spicy ramen, Halu Salad

    Shoyu ramen is awesome. The specials menu changes often but the flavors are always amazing.

    Philip Garcia · July 25, 2015

    Must try if you love yakitori or skewers. Interior design is awesome. Makes you feel like you are in another world.

    An izakaya spot that's tiny, quirky -- you can't miss the Beatles memorabilia -- and also satisfyingly simple. The ramen is good, but the skewers are exceptional. Read more

    Get the okonomiyaki and the pan-fried soy and brown butter mochi wrapped in nori.

    Anton Shuster · February 17, 2015
  • Iris N.

    Great hole in the wall izakaya! The mentaiko chicken thigh skewers and beef belly skewers are delicious! And I don't even like bellies! Come early, before 7:30pm for dinner to avoid wait.

    Great little spot! Service can be slow, but the ramen and yakitori are worth waiting for. Especially since you can pass the time perusing Beatles books and memorabilia.

    Halu's shining grace is not the ramen - but the yakitori. Juicy and delicious - the tontoro is a definite must order. The decor and the attentive waitstaff are another plus.

  • Jole P.

    Such good ramen! Though the outside may look like a drug front inside is super cool and cozy.

    Jole P · December 10, 2014

    Get the Erichan special

    Gerard Reyes · November 28, 2014

    Great yakitori, and sake/shoju selection. Get the shiso beef (very rare kababs with a shiso leaf chutney) and Erichan's special (mochi pan-fried in butter and soy and, as delicious as it sounds).

    Suraj Acharya · November 19, 2014
  • Danny Y.

    Prepare to wait for at least 30 - 45 for your ramen. Add 10 min for each additional plate. Half kidding. Hearty ramen is worth it and satisfying.

    Danny Yu · November 17, 2014

    Mochi wrapped in seaweed!

    It's small and crowded, but totally worth it. Beatles memorabilia galore.

    The okonomiyaki is good here! Crispy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside.

    Ramen is bomb but they charge for tea... definitely a party foul in my book

    Brandon Weigelt · October 14, 2011
  • Caroline O.

    Try a double shot of shochu with Ramune soda. Cuz it's weird but surprisingly delicious.

    bacon-wrapped everything....

    cynthia wang · August 30, 2011

    Best robata in SF. Ramen is okay--the Beatles-themed restaurant makes up for it and really adds a chill vibe to the whole dining experience. They also have yuzu shu! :)

    Elaine Low · August 18, 2011

    Fantastic yakitori + Beatles = win!

    cynthia wang · July 6, 2011
  • The Feast

    You wouldn't usually equate ramen with The Beatles and '60s memorabilia, but thanks to their reliably delicious ramen, Halu gets away with it. Read more

    You'd be hard-pressed to find better okonomiyaki in the city. Throw in the Beatles decor, the offal-laden yakitori, and the friendly family vibe and the tiny Halu's a win. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    Wow. I guess tesdays are the hot nights here. Just waited 58 minutes after ordering for food to come. Thank god for iPhones and trivialpursuit/wordswithfriends. Jesus I'm hungry.

    Pork ramen is superb -- the pork is really well done. Also, all the Beatles stuff makes for a very cozy and eclectic environment.
