    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!

    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.

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

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

    You pick the ice cream (matcha sesame obvss), filling, 2 toppings and drizzle for $7. Plus an adorable photo worth grammin' 👍🏼

    straight outta japan - matcha + sesame soft serve. perfect place to take hipster pics. the ice cream & taiyaki are so gooooood but mochi could be better.

    Green tea and sesame soft served ice cream in a Japanese fish-shaped cake. Straight Outta Japan($7) would be a good choice. $10 minimum for credit card payment.

    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!

    Ice cream goals. Delicious soft serve, snack on a wafer and mochi and you still have a taiyaki cake for your happy ending 😋

    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.

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

    Warm & soft fish shaped cone with custard or red bean paste at the bottom, get the Choco-Lit
  • Catherine W.
    Small Japanese soft serve ice cream spot served with warm crunchy fish-shaped pancakes. Ugh so good!

    Great size! Not too large. The soft serve is creamy and the fish freshly baked!

    Rainbow unicorn! 🌈 it's a tiny store so it gets crowded easily esp during the summer but ig-worth hahaha

    The ice cream is incredible! It's light and refreshing and the waffle fish cone is not only insta worthy but delicious.

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

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

    This place was super fun! The ice cream was delicious and the cone so cute! Tasted like a waffle.

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

    Delicious soft serve - recommend the matcha black sesame swirl
  • Ernesto G.
    Ice cream wins all the points in the presentation department but lacks any real substance. The cone fish pastry is too soft a dough, feels like moist bread.

    It's pretty, but ultimately the ice cream doesn't quite hold up and the entire affair ends up soggy.
  • Alejandra C.
    Cool vibe! Didn't like the taste of the waffle! Tasted a lot like egg!

    Matcha and strawberry swerves are both delicious!
  • Lee S.
    Personally, I don't think it's worth the wait. It's cool and it tastes good, but it's hardly mind blowing.
