    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.

    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

    Best yakitori in New York. Get the omakase and be specific about your favorite type of meats. I recommend asking for as much offals as you can get. The liver is creamy and the heart, sweet and tender.

    Sit at the bar and get the omakase. Add the uni garlic over toast if you're really hungry. They are usually packed, make reservations ahead. One Michelin star.

    Nothing short of perfection, the yakitori here will leave you with severe separation anxiety. The sake list is thoughtfully curated, & prices accessible. Be sure to introduce yourself to chef Urashi.

    Wow! Omakase and 10 skewer dishes were phenomenal. I also HIGHLY recommend the chicken liver. Melts in your mouth. Service is also very very good, despite the other reviews.

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

    Michelin and Yakitori? Must be exceptional! Omakase is the way to go. Although the sound of internal organ may put you off, I recommend trying the course as is

    The best tsukune, even better than the one in Tokyo, I ve ever had. Dip it into the fresh egg yolk, then nom!

    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.

    Their yakitori was delicious. The downside is it was a Saturday night so it took over three hours to get our chef's Omakase. No one should have to wait that long for food. A disappointing experience.

    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

    I've never liked yakitori but this place does it exceptionally well. Get these skewers: the heart, chicken oyster, special meatball and belly skin.
  • Michelin Travel & Lifestyle
    Expect perfectly grilled skewers. Also try cold duck, chicken meatballs wrapped in duck skin, or chicken "oysters." – Green Guide Editor

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

    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.

    Yes, listen to everyone else and go with the Omakase. The wagyu is quite delicious as well although a bit pricey at $15.

    Completely delicious. Ask to sit at the lovely peaceful bar, and don't skip the avocado!

    Go for the omakase. It allows the yakitori chefs to produce a customized feast of their specialties. - Inspector

    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.

    Probably best yakitori I've ever had. We ordered our chicken medium rare. Highest level of respect for chicken. Shoulder, heart, gizzard, breast, everything was succulent. Get omakase for $60.

    Worst Michelin star experience ever. Dishes are super over priced. It was NOT delicious AT ALL. NOT AT ALL! I would never come back and never recommend this place. It was waste of money & time.

    焼鳥屋というより焼鳥レストラン。このQualityの焼鳥がNew Yorkで食べられることじたいが驚き。大変おいしい!ミシュランで続けて星をとり続けているだけのことはある。値段が高いとの言及もあるが、値段相応だと思う。 日本酒焼酎の品ぞろえも良い。 日本食を食べたくなった日本人にも、日本食を楽しみたいNew Yorkerにも愛されている。おススメします!
