    The okonomiyaki is the closest taste to Hiroshima you're gonna get in this city

    Food was ok. Best thing we ate was crispy gizzard. But the service omg is unbearable. Taking order takes forever, getting food forever and then the check! I just can't 😂not coming back again

    Ramen is decent but still with the yakitori it's some of the best!

    Get the Horumon! Most Izakaya here in SF miss the point and don't have real Yakitori!

    This place is pretty good. Broth was not too heavy but has substantial flavor. Their yakitori is delicious. Tiny place so get their early or might be a wait.

    Yakitori is super rich and flavorful, try the tendon if you want a fatty, meaty caramelized overload, so good.

    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!

    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

    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.

    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).

    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.

    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! :)

    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

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