    Finding a traditional binchōtan-fueled grill is hard to come by, but they've got the real stuff at this old-school Michelin-starred yakitori. A mere $65 gets you a wide sampling of skewers. Read more

    Omakase ($65/pp) is the way to go. It is deceivingly filling. Always ask for bonjiri if they have it.

    My favorite part of the meal was the discovery of the shishito pepper shakers from Kyoto (also sold at Kajitsu) and the homemade basil sorbet dessert (very light and unique).

    Friend who have lived in Japan for many years said that the food there was authentic. My favorite dish is Oyako Don. Oishi!

    They cook over binchotan which is authentic Yakitori, but our waitress was too busy texting on her phone to get us menus, 10 mins for drinks, more texting, 2 hours of watching her text.

    Expect perfectly grilled skewers. Also try cold duck, chicken meatballs wrapped in duck skin, or chicken "oysters." – Green Guide Editor

    Must do the 10 skewer Chef's Omakase (7 meat, 3 veggie)! $50 pp. My faves: Chicken thigh, chicken meatball, fried chicken, chicken oyster (in pic), chicken neck, chicken rib, duck/chicken meatball.

    Definitely the best Yakitori in town. They will push you their set menu, which include some unnecessary starters but I advise you go dive into Yakitori from the start.

    Very authentic but your gonna pay for it. $15 for udon (its $9-$12) every where else and $20 for a bento box is also a little high. Service and food are excellent and all staff are very friendly.

    To get the best experience, sit at the bar and ask the chef what's for special. Also, go on Fridays when they stock up on meat.
