    Eel rice was definitely the best I've had in NYC so far, not too rich yet a delicious bowl with other combinations.

    Such tight corridors, they sat my party of 4 at this tiny table in the far back corner under the coat hangers!!! There is fried chicken skin, eww... but other fried meats were decent!

    Not so great for a vegetarian. I had the veggie stir fry entre that came with potato salad and spaghetti (!?) bizarre and not particularly tasty...

    Yakitori Taisho is an amazing experience in meat on skewers. You know it has to be good because Japanese teenagers line up around the corner before it even opens. Definitely get in early or wait

    The sabashio (grilled mackerel) was delicious, as was the fried tofu. However, our yakitori set came out cold and the wait staff asked us "are you sure?", which was totally the wrong approach.

    The Salmon Carpaccio, Yakitori Combos, Grilled Hamachi, and Mentai Potatoes are all recommended. Can't beat this place for food, price, and atmosphere!

    Come for the takoyaki stay for the chicken yaki. Some say its a glorified bar but YMMV. Good luck getting seats outside 1am, but then again night is when this place would really hit the spot.
