Please note this online reservation is for the Robata counter seating.
Excellent location near the plays. Food is excellent and very affordable for Times Square. Sit at the counter it’s defintely worth the experience.
Amazing atmosphere ,fun experience and great foos!
Sushi was fresh. Loved Kobe skewer and mochi dessert.
This is the third time I've eaten at Inakaya, and I've enjoyed it very much each time. The Robata is something very special. It is a very authentic and excellent Japanese restaurant. And the server at our table was very friendly.
The setting is beautiful, the service was excellent the food was good but not outstanding for a 5 stars.
The restaurant looks like a tourist trap from outside, and they perform some tourist friendly gimmicky mini-entertainments. Beside that food is pretty authentic Japanese food and generous in portion. Not cheap, but not expensive especially for the location which is two blocks away from Times Square.
don't get the set menu... for $65, really poor value for your money. e.g., fake seafood stick in the California roll, crappy wooden chopsticks, overcooked mains (both the duck and the fish), green tea ice cream is too sweet - not the good stuff...
This place was very cool. We got the 6 course meal for $80 and split it. The seafood was very fresh and we really enjoyed the tuna salad, spicy tuna on crispy rice, and grilled sweet potatoes. We got the lobster as the entree and it was a little difficult to eat without making a mess using just chopsticks. Overall it was a good experience and we would go back.
It was a good dinner but really too expensive. You can see the chef cooking : interesting
We ordered the Course Meal - great good and great value. Don't order the omakase sushi because sushi is not their strong suit. They are known for their grilling. I enjoyed sitting at the counter and to be served food on the long tray/pole. If you are there for dinner around 8:30 they make mochi on the dining floor and the customers and participate.
Excellent service and very fresh fish. Great for pre-theater.
Terrible service. Host smelled like weed. Was not open during the time I made reservation on open table. Had to wait 30 mins for them to open
I took my kids here for Christmas dinner. We all loved it!
Food was terrible. Drinks were decent. Service was sub par. Definitely would not go back
Really good fresh sashimi beautifully prepared- excellent Kobe beef skewers and vegetables were well made- this is a chain but felt like a nice chain in Tokyo or Kobe- good authentic Japanese - Yalu and Sashimi/sushi — would go back
The ambiance and location is feels off given the pricey food. Overall the taste of the food carried the evening otherwise I would have given it 3 stars. Service was ok, but you had to serve yourself most of the time from the counter seating paddles. It was a unique experience, but we likely won't return.
Great service and delicious meal. My husband and I both had the blacken cod and it was delicious. Is one of our favorite dishes every time we dine at Inakaya.
Terrible service, drinks were empty during most of the meal. Food came out inconsistently. Patrons arriving and ordering fifteen minutes after is received their entrees before ours arrived. Once the food was brought out and our meals were finished the waiter brought the wrong check and tried to run a higher considerably higher check without explaining his error. Overall a terrible experience and would not recommend.
Food is high-priced for small servings of average food. Sushi was basic, looked and tasted just like the boxed stuff from the grocery store at three times the price. Service was terribly slow from the time we were seated until we left. 20 minutes after we finished eating had to stand up and flag down our server because we had show tickets and needed to go and he had not returned to our table.
Asked for ice water, was brought a 7$ bottle of water while everyone else around us had tap water. Too pricy for the amount of food, not a great selection of sushi.
We chose this restaurant because we were going to a show afterwards, and didn't want anything generic that Times Square usually offers. The food was definitely elevated- we got to split a whole fish and some sushi, which was definitely delicious. They definitely use high quality fish. However, the service was not good. When seated we had to wait almost ten minutes for our menus, tables next to us had to ask for waters more than once and we received their waters after they continuously asked (and we never got the sparkling/flat water option other tables seemed to get). There appeared to be one waiter, who eventually got stuck behind the bar. We wanted dessert but never got our waiter back for 45 minutes, we had to go up to the bar to get our check, pay, and leave. The dessert did look good but given this poor service we couldn't have any. This was supposed to be a date but we were both so stressed out by the service that we did not have a good time. For the price we paid you'd expect something better, we will not be returning here.
WE arrived late for our reservation, and near closing time, but were immediately and graciously accommodated, and had very good sushi. Hope to return soon for the slow-roasted specialties, which we were too late to sample.
Sushi is good. Worth a visit.
Fantastic food, unique menu. Outstanding seafood and sushi.
Fantastic!!! Best sushi I’ve had in years!!!
Excellent service and amazing experience! Tried the 6 course meal and was not disappointed!
Dos cosas nos encintaron el pastel del mojí y las ostras flameadas ... riquísimas !
Recommended black Cod fillet but not the grilled shrimp. Ambience location and decor for excellent. Service was very good.
stably excellent place
I love INAKAYA for the food and ambiance but the price increase was steep.
Fantastic Japanese grill
First time there I was treated to a great experience with server Lert. Service and food were great. My business partner and I ended up eating there 2 nights in a row. Highly recommend.
What a wonderful surprise! As soon as you walk in you are welcomed- you feel at home and the sushi and spicy edamame were both fabulous!!! We will definitely return !
A quiet restaurant, quick sitting and conveniently located in Time Square. The food was good but nothing special for the price. It did not seem so authentic. Over all, an average restaurant.
Attentive service and great sushi.
They start clearing the kitchen at 9 PM we arrived at 9 PM ...
Overall great experience. Spicy tuna on crispy rice was excellent. The king crab California roll was tasty but my daughter didn’t think overall worth the price. The spicy shrimp roll loved by all. The sashimi very fresh and flavorful. I would pass on the fried tofu. It was dense and lacked sauce or flavor. I generally love tofu but this was a miss for me. The service was excellent. It was over $220 for 3 people so a bit pricey; however it is NYC so we expected it.
Great value for authentic and fresh Japanese cuisine. Perfect for pre-theater.
The Robata barbecue was delightful. Be sure to stay for the ceremony.
Fun robata bar with a great menu. I was solo, but it would be a good place to be with a date.
