    I love this izakaya. Just when you thought there was no cool place to eat in this 'hood. Go downstairs, grab a table in the nook or the bar (only two spots I like) and try everything on the menu

    Come here & say kon'nichiwa to low prices on sake & Japanese fare. Get chicken & liver skewers ($1.50 each) & sake or a mixed drink for $4. Read more

    Great izakaya. No reservations. Always long waits. Incredibly fun. Order mercilessly and carelessly.

    Tucked away in Times Square is this often crowded Japanese spot. You won't find sushi on the menu here but don't fret - the wasabi octopus will leave you wanting more!

    Ask the waitress for recommendations on sake and she might bring you a flight. The fried gizzards and pork belly skewers are superb.

    Subterranean Times Square hideaway for Japanese pub fare: yakitori to udon to dried skate fin. Fans include chefs Dave Pasternack (Esca), Michael Anthony (Gramercy Tavern) & Joe Ogrodenek (Battersby)

    Love this place! Always a wait, but don't be deterred. I recommend: hokke (smoked mackerel), bacon wrapped enoki, and fried squid, but everything good. Cheap draft beer (Kirin and Sapporo) too!

  • Time Out New York

    This buzzy, underground izakaya defies its dowdy location in the heart of Times Square with authentic Japanese flavors that would scare the fanny pack off most tourists. Read more

    I'll die happy when I've consummed every bloody thing on this shiney-shiney menu. I may also go into cardiac arrest. Think "soul food" but from the Japs. Izakaya, get it!

    Try yellowtail collar here. They don't always have it but when they do you won't regret it.

    Get the yellow tail collar and green tea shochu. If it's on the menu - chicken livers.

    A whole on the ground. Look for the Sake Bar sign & make sure you go downstairs. Make sure to sign your name on the list & leave your number so they can call you when the table is ready.

    Nice little authentic Sake bar for after work. Try the yellowtail collar and the pork belly. They open the doors at 5:30pm (on the dot).

    There are 3 venues w/ "152" listed as the address, so look 4 the blk awning with "Iroha" on it, enter the restaurant & go downstairs for Sake Bar Hagi. Open L8 & very affordable! Usually a line tho.

    Very hard to find. Hole in the wall place down in the basement. Food was cheap and good. Place smelled like bleach. Bad customer service.

    Great underground izakaya with wonderful pitcher beer specials. Unfortunately it's small, so a wait on the weekends will be at least an hour.

    Don't go to Times Square for it, but don't leave Times Square without it. Killer wasabi shumai, gyoza, and fried soft shelled shrimp and dec sake menu to wash it down.
