    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!

    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!

    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

    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.

    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.

    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

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