    Visit this place for a tranquil and pampered experience with doorbells at every table and delicious but affordable menu. We love this persimmon-wrapped tuna sashimi. Read more

    For foodies looking to expand their Eastern horizons beyond the realm of sushi, Zenkichi is a modern Japanese brasserie offering the chance to experience traditional Tokyo with exotic small plates.

    Japanese place you will always remember in Brooklyn. Bit pricey but worth everything. You get your own private space for party of 2. Read more

    Simply the most delicious Japanese restaurant in Brooklyn hands down, and the romantic cozy private booths are great for your date :)

    Really good black sesame mousse, black cod, chicken meatball, spicy cod riceball and eggplant with cold tofu!

    Great private booths and a vibe that makes you feel like you walked into a hidden Tokyo gem. Very good but not blow your mind food.

    Love the private booths and buzzers. If you ask, they offer a totally Vegetarian Omakase menu!

    This place charged $5 for a pot of tea. Went with 4 of my friends. Ordered a bottle of sake. So I find it ridiculous that they charge us $20 for 4 pots of tea. Food is overrated.

    the teba wings are amazing!

    Justine Korpi · September 24, 2010
  • Dana O.

    Miso cod and frozen black sesame mousse are unreal. Highly recommend the tasting menu... a little bit of everything at a reasonable price. Sake selection is great!

    Dana OMalley · June 29, 2010

    Delicious small plates and sake in a very romantic and intimate setting.

    William Huba · December 19, 2014
  • Caroline R.

    Great omakase. Includes soup, sushi, cod, steak, and rice with salmon & ikura. The private booths are cozy but a little tight. Imagine especially so for my tall friends out there.

    Nice place, good service, great food. Must try Shrimp&Nasu tempura and Nagoya teba wings.

    This restaurant is amazing! The fixed price menu is perfectly portioned and everything is expertly crafted. Definitely get the Sake sampler. They're all tasty (and strong)!

    Private booths! Great place to go if you're one of those gross couples who makes out at dinner.

    Love love love the Grilled Black Cod and the Sake selection here!

    Linh (Kelly) Nguyen · August 24, 2012
  • Andrew C.

    Quite possibly the best Japanese food I've ever tasted. Get the White Kakuni, it was out of this world! Atmosphere was also very cool with the private booths, so it's good for a date!

    omikase is flippin' amazing and not pricey at $65/per person. seasonal menu... semi-private, romantic booths.

    cynthia wang · August 30, 2011
  • Jen B.

    Omakase is SO worth it, but if going a la carte, the cod and teba wings are a must.

    This restaurant is perfection. If you want to take advantage of this superb menu at a low price, make it to Dine-in Brooklyn Week! A $60 full-course meal at only $25 — ends on 03/31.

    You would be a moron to not get the cod. Please do yourself a favor and listen. Legit.

    Grilled chicken: BOOM. rice ball: BOOM. cod: BOOM

  • Trace C.

    The sake here is amazing, make sure to ask the waitress to describe them all to you. Also the atmosphere makes you feel like you are in Japan, when you're really in Brooklyn. There are also buttons

    Trace Cohen · July 22, 2010

    The duck salad is so delicious, we keep coming back to this place for it. The place is also great for dates, all tables are isolated with curtains, and waiter comes when you press a special button.

    You’ll recognize the entrance to Zenkichi because of its discreet door (in a wood-paneled wall) with the number ‘77’ above it.

  • Zaza G.

    Everything is great. Pro tip: you can never go wrong with Japanese meatballs

    Zaza Gilson · September 26, 2014
  • Jacqueline T.

    Definitely a place to remember. You get your own cubicle so it's very private. The food is very exotic and different. Miso cod and the tuna sashimi are great!

    Jacqueline Tawil · September 21, 2014
  • Connie C.

    Sashimi! Tsukune chicken! Spicy roe rice ball! Milk tofu dessert!

    Connie Chiu · September 11, 2014

    Tables are no bigger than school desks, but that’s OK; there’s enough room for two to snuggle and feed each other morsels from the seasonal eight-course omakase tasting menu ($65 per person). Read more

    New York Post · September 1, 2014
  • Maria L.

    Tiny tables! Do the omakase and chocolate walnut dessert.

    Maria Lambert · August 17, 2014
  • Lori L.

    This intimate restaurant is perfect for dates. Order a variety of small plates (potato mochi, jidori salt chicken) or just go for the omakase. End the meal with the frozen black sesame mousse.

    Lori Luo · August 10, 2014
  • Ajay C.

    It's a good place for a date (not a first date). Try the Anago and Cream Cheese Tempura. It's legit.

    Ajay Chainani · August 9, 2014

    A service button at the end of the table alerts the wait staff to your beckoning call. Major VIP treatment. As such, reservations are highly recommended. Read more
