Great food but very small portions hence the 13 course menu. Friendly service and they did a great job explaining each dish. Would definitely recommend for a date night or special occasion. Not good for groups.

The set menu format merges different cousines along a fundamental Japanese core of superbly crafted and innovative courses.

The experience we had at Chiko was spectacular. Taste of the food was amazing and would highly recommend you all to pay the visit here. Chef Xiao and the sous chef both pay attention to so much detail and do an amazing job at explaining every aspect of the dish they present to you. All the dishes were a work of art!

Absolutely outstanding - on par with Shuko, except at least for now, Chiko is BYOB with no corkage fee, so from a value perspective, it's hard to beat that. All tasting menu kaiseki, very creative Japanese and sushi. We go out a lot, and this was possibly our best meal of the year, and may go into our all-time top 5. Brilliant hole-in-the-wall that deserves a lot more traffic, but in the meantime, get there ASAP with the BYOB and while you can still get a seat at a good time before the reviews hit and the secret is out. We have nothing to do with the restaurant, chefs and ownership...we just enjoyed our meal there two days ago *that much*. Five stars.

We had a lovely time here. Chef Xiao skillfully executes Japanese cuisine as a lens to reflect upon his experiences coming to New York. Contrasts in flavor, texture, and temperature resulted in courses that were challenging and full of surprises, but all the pieces, for the most part, worked brilliantly together. This is the perfect restaurant for those who love personal, delicious food in an intimate setting.

Amazing and original experience! I love how each dish was created base on the chef's personal stories... as an immigrant but truly uniquely New York. Can't wait to return back...
