    Open until 3 a.m. nightly, this subterranean izakaya has become a neighborhood staple offering interesting pub fare like Japanese barbecue and yakitori, rice balls, okonomiyaki, and noodles. Read more

    This place is good but not great. If you want to try a better izakaya in the area venture south to izakaya mew.

    Low key, cheap izakaya. Great for scaling while drinking.

    Lots of yakitori options! Many of the dishes skew on the salty side.

    Authentic and excellent Japanese food and a nice sake menu. Yellowtail and yakitori was excellent and the green tea dessert cake. A nice vibe good for groups but gets busy.

    Casual and authentic Izakaya, maybe one of the rare places in midtown where finding inexpensive meals is quite challenging. Get started with taco-wasa(raw octopus with wasabi).

    Not as good as the rave reviews would suggest... all the dishes were mediocre at best. Avoid the dry, charred yakitori. Chawanmushi portion is large but just tastes like salty, soggy rice.

    I love to get a combination of things and share with whoever I'm dining with, so we can get a taste of everything. The chicken hearts, the salmon sashimi, and the fried rice are the best things to try

    A hidden gem in Time Square. The place is literally in a basement. A wide selection of sake and the food is good too. I recommend the mentai pasta and the assortment of yakitori skewers!

    A quality, perpetually busy izakaya in Midtown West, Sake Bar Hagi has a thorough array of sake and spirits, and serves up affordable, tasty plates, such as the yakitori and okonomiyaki.

    Despite the fact that mid dinner we had a roach crawl across our table the food was really good. Don't expect quality service at all. It's a cheap, divey, touristy Japanese place.
