Such a great selection of yakitori. Very accommodating, allowed to me to amend my booking last minute. Definitely recommend, have to go back though since the dessert we were after sold out. Got to get in there quick.

We visited Goryon San for a birthday and the energy at the restaurant was great! We enjoyed the atmosphere and liked how their chefs grill your skewers in an open-style grill so you can watch them cook your orders with finesse.

Though, the one thing I would like to see is more vege options for the non-meat eaters. It was a shame that 95% of the menu were meat options, so my partner and I could not enjoy the experience with the family!

The staff were great though, very hospitable!

I went once on a Friday night last month and I loves it. The staffs were super friendly. So, I decided to come back the second time on Thursday night (25th July). Awesome service and great food like the first time :).

Good environment, good service and creative dishes. But too expensive.. at least $50/pp to be barely full. That’s almost fine dining price but food is not up to that level. Also the food was cooked super slow, we spent over 1.5 hours here, 90% of time was waiting for food, which was a bit disappointing

I love my Japanese food and this place is a winner! All dishes were amazing and the truffle oil edamame dish was such a great starter.

Loved our evening in this little gem! Really funky vibe, impeccable service and special food! We were a party of 10 celebrating a birthday and had lots of fun sharing the incredible skewers and other dishes and going through the great drink list! Definitely a must try for a unique evening! Thank you!

The staff was so lovely. The food and having being able to sit next to the kitchen seeing the chefs prepare the food was such an amazing experience. But the staffs attention to us was amazing.

Had a great night and food selection was excellent. I felt the value was a bit questionable with some dishes commanding quite alot considering a small portion on the stick.
Enjoyed the sake tasting

We loved the experience and some of the skewers is just other worldly. Highly recommend the quail eggs, LPBs, chicken tail and their umeshu and hakata mules.

Food is great but slow , maybe I was in peak time at 6.15pm and hungry? Our first order came after 45mins waiting. Poor service on floor staffs. We have to looking for floor staff all the time., and also table next to me she also had to raise her hand up when need for service.

A very authentic Kushiyaki restaurant. This is real Japanese cuisine, not an imitator. Excellent food to pair with a drinking session.

Will definitely return to this joint. Very good food and great ambiance.
You would think its a Yakitori and the place will smell like bbq, but it didn't.
