    Pit stop if angels share is full. The food is great! But this is a busy busy restaurant!

  • Ashley V.

    Super cute set up! Get the skewered chicken skins -- absolutely delish!

    Stop by for the okonomiyaki but the real treat is Angel Share the bar in the back.

    Mona Nomura · September 10

    The fried squid legs with mayo are the best! Great place to spend a Friday with friends - drink and eat all night long

    Esther Jung · August 13
  • Brook S.

    Mostly you're better off going to another yakitori place. The food is alright, but unless you're going to Angel share, it's not worth it

    Brook Shelley · August 4

    Solid atmosphere. Good beef tongue yakitori. Lots of variety.

    George Lee · July 4

    Amazing bi bim bap and be sure to check out the "speakeasy" by the staircase.

    Josh Mateo · June 16
  • Gloria

    I'm sure the wait staff is much nicer to customers who don't come as a group...

    Best izakaya japanese food in nyc. Late night or just for dinner and drinks! Good for groups. Gets very crowded so beware!

  • Ina L.

    6.5 dollars sauté beef tongue is the bomb! Cheap but delicious late spot

  • Ryan C.

    Great sake selection. Sashimi bowl was delicious with a good amount of sea urchin. Fantastic yakitori.

    Ryan C · February 7
  • Tamas N.

    skewers are the perfect drunk food, but the best bet is still the octopus salad

    Tamas Neltz · February 7
  • Paul

    Good quality seafood and extremely wow service. Sashimi didn't disappoint. The waiters have spot on recommendations to suit the pickiest taste.

    Japanese Izakaya is transformative. One of my fave late night digs. Order the specials and age dashi tofu, you can't go wrong.

    Simran Jaising · December 10, 2014
  • Sonia G.

    Okay substitute for when it's cold and you don't have two hours to wait at ippudo

    Sonia Grobman · December 8, 2014

    Squid legs and spicy tuna bowl!

    Rita L · October 24, 2014
  • Lori L.

    Not a bad place to grab a drink and small bites, like the yakitori or rice bowls, especially when waiting for a seat at Angel's Share.

    Lori Luo · September 8, 2014
  • John David B.

    Yakittori, shrimp shumai..cocktails next door

    John David Baez · September 5, 2014
  • Summer K.

    Def get the Chicken Skin, Gizzards, and the fried Squid legs? Just any Yakitori things and when you are done make sure you go into Angel's Share it's right in the not-so-"secret door"

    Summer Kamigaki · September 2, 2014
  • Joh

    Deep fried squid legs, daikon salad, una don when they have it, and ume onigiri!

    Sisha Ortuzar, chef of Riverpark, eats here on his nights off. He loves the Duck & scallion yakitori. Read more

  • Nayoung

    Wow never noticed before but food is terrible- udon came with small portion of thin noodles super salty and agedashi tofu had a thick batter, again salty.

    Nayoung · July 19, 2014

    The best fried squid legs

  • JR N.

    Yummy yakitori but portions are small and it's rather pricey.

    JR New · May 31, 2014
  • Weikai L.

    I love their hamashio - succulent, hot, salty clams. For the adventurous, try the chicken gizzard skewers!

    Weikai Lang · May 11, 2014
  • Grace K.

    Go to dishes incl, but DEF not limited to: take yakitori combo, spicy tuna in a bowl, takowasa (raw salted octopus with wasabi), agedashi tofu, takoyaki, gesokara, miso cod

    Grace Kim · April 3, 2014
  • Nancerella

    I guess it's OK, but not too thrilled about the 'C' grade

    Nancerella · March 16, 2014
  • Lisa P.

    Spicy tuna bowl!

    Lisa Park · December 21, 2013
  • Nick D.

    The udon noodle soup is as flavorful as food can be without overpowering the eater by the end.

    Nick Douglas · August 29, 2013
  • Ziyun P.

    Daikon stew! Chicken skin! Beef tongue!

    Ziyun Peng · August 22, 2013
  • Jonathan V.

    Get dinner at Village Yokocho, then booze it up at Angel Share. Get the chicken heart. Unless you're a prude.

    Jonathan Vu · August 5, 2013
  • Jeff O.

    This entire block is great

    Jeff Orlick · July 31, 2013
  • Anne T.

    Fried squid legs, country stew, oysters & mushrooms in butter sauce, spicy tuna bowl, beef tongue, okinomyaki! #nom

    Anne Taillandier · July 4, 2013
  • Nicholas D.

    The Okonomi Yaki is a sight to behold. Paper thin bonito flakes dance in the steam of a custardy cake not unlike BBQ Thanksgiving Dressing/Stuffing with Pickled Ginger. Get the Tako salad and stir.

    Nicholas Doyle · June 14, 2013
  • Jeffyi L.

    Try the TONSOKU (Grilled Pigs Feet).
