    The straight outta Japan has a delicious swirl of black sesame and matcha ice cream with mochi, red bean paste and a chocolate wafer. The cone is a taiyaki cake! Served warm and delicious.

    What's better than soft serve? Soft serve in a fish mouth! In this case, a warm cake with custard serves at the cone and makes for a delightful treat!

    Taiyaki has croyaki now stuffed with your choice of bean paste or custard. Custard was delicious and the croyaki was flavorful

    Best dessert in NYC. Homemade green tea icecream artfully adorning a warm one of a kind fish waffle cone filled with red bean. The sprinkled mochi on top takes this delight to the next level.

    Literally everything on their menu is golden. Try the straight out of japan for the authentic dessert experience that made this place so popular.

    Line moves pretty quickly! The soft serve is really yummy. Portions are large - you might even be able to share! Not much filling in the actual taiyaki, but still great!

    Worth the hype. Get passed the horde of IGers and enjoy a delicious treat (matcha and black sesame is legit)

    You must try the straight from Japan. This place does not sell the warm filled taiyaki, but the ice cream filling versions instead. It is great place and worth the visit.

    Warm & soft fish shaped cone with custard or red bean paste at the bottom, get the Choco-Lit

    Small Japanese soft serve ice cream spot served with warm crunchy fish-shaped pancakes. Ugh so good!

    Awesome ice cream and great staff! I spilled mine and they replaced it on the house!

    Very good... Loved the Straight Outta Japan -- matcha / black sesame swirl, Mochi, red beans... But $7 for this thing is a bit overpriced IMO.

    overhyped on taste, but great for Instagram. Also prepare to be aggressive to get a seat because it's tiny

    often crowded tourist haven, but worth the wait for a unique and light warm/cold dessert

    Fish. Custard. Azuki. Ice cream. Ingredients for a winning recipe, almost worth the price asked for.

    It's pretty, but ultimately the ice cream doesn't quite hold up and the entire affair ends up soggy.
