Oyako Don in their takeout menu is my fav.
everything about this place is perfect. one of the top japanese restaurants in nyc
Get any of their organic chicken skewers & their spicy chicken wings
Good food but lousy service 👎
Nice food, lousy service... Try the Yuan sauced chicken thigh...
Michelin starred chicken skewers(yakitori) place.
The best tsukune, even better than the one in Tokyo, I ve ever had. Dip it into the fresh egg yolk, then nom!
Love the grilled veggies. We asked the waitress to choose for us and it was an unforgettable expierence.
Omakase ($65/pp) is the way to go. It is deceivingly filling. Always ask for bonjiri if they have it.
Incredibly tender meats. For sure do the tasting menu. Amazing flavors!
Should've done the omakase! Loved the oyako donburi and the house sake
Authentic Japanese yet not too expensive
Pork bely e avocado! Top.
Pork belly with garlic miso is supa oichi!
Grilled avocado is amazing.
Oyako don was amazing!
Note to self: A Roberts favorite.
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
Order the hot chicken, rice and egg dish!
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.
Sit at the yakatori bar, anything chicken will be fabulous . DON'T BE AFRAID OF THE ORGANS!
Try the Chicken Breast Meat With Yuan Sauce
Try the Tender Chicken Loin With Wasabi
Try the chicken meatballs
Hands down, the best Yakitori in New York. Sit down in front of Chef Kano, ask for the omakase!!
Pork belly with garlic miso. Do it
Michelin star yakitori... I'd buy that. Good stuff. Full of Japanese patrons. Always a good sign.
Try the Chicken Thigh Meat
Try the Shitake
Try the Mentaiko Ochazuke
Try the Saikyomiso
Try the 出汁巻き卵（Dashimaki tamago: Omelete Japanese Style)
Horribly over priced. Everything ends up tasting like terriyaki anyway.
Michelin 2012 ★
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.
Excellent yakitori. Would like to visit again.
omakase is the way to go. eat a chicken from head to bottom, inside to outside.
Definitely get the special chicken meatball
The omakase is a must do. And make sure you ask for the grilled bamboo shoots and the chicken oysters and the pork belly wrapped tomatoes
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.
One Michelin star.
Yes, listen to everyone else and go with the Omakase. The wagyu is quite delicious as well although a bit pricey at $15.
Lunch menu even on Sunday!!
Go for the omakase. It allows the yakitori chefs to produce a customized feast of their specialties. - Inspector
Make sure to sit at the bar. This is a true authentic yakitori restaurant.
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.
