    Food is good, cute deco and nice atmosphere. Perfect for a quick bite after a cocktail at Angel's share.

    Went here after angels share, limited veg stuff but it tasted good, although got really bad food poisoning afterwards.

    Giant okonomiyaki (takes about 30min to cook) and solid yakitori. Don't shy away from the beef tongue and chicken skin/gizzards. Everything off the specials menu is worth ordering.

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

    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

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

    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.

    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"
