Go for the omakase. It allows the yakitori chefs to produce a customized feast of their specialties. - Inspector
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.
I second the omakase choice. It was almost too much food for me, but so succulent! Also, the chefs are really good-humored.
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.
Definitely get the special chicken meatball
Lunch menu even on Sunday!!
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.
No chicken part left uncooked. Make sure to try the heart, liver, gizzard & tail.
An eatery which you would want to re-visit and enjoy the good food and genuine Japanese atmosphere
One of the worst experiences. Never had waitress say "me so sorry" so many times. Out of items, lipstick on glass, charged for items that never came.A la carte is limited. Go to Yakitori Tatto instead
Try the 出汁巻き卵（Dashimaki tamago: Omelete Japanese Style) (via @Foodspotting)
omakase is the way to go. eat a chicken from head to bottom, inside to outside.
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 (via @Foodspotting)
Try the Tender Chicken Loin With Wasabi (via @Foodspotting)
Try the chicken meatballs (via @Foodspotting)
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 (via @Foodspotting)
Try the Shitake (via @Foodspotting)
Try the Mentaiko Ochazuke (via @Foodspotting)
Try the Saikyomiso (via @Foodspotting)
Horribly over priced. Everything ends up tasting like terriyaki anyway.
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.
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.
Forgot why we don't come here more often good people and awesome food
Get the massive yakatori sampler. plenty of food
