Great Service. The hostess was friendly and very helpful with finding a window table for are stay. The serve was so friendly and very helpful and on point with every service. The rest of staff even was making sure we didn’t burn are meat dishes . The food was very flavorful and delicious. The samurai for four was plenty of food to feed all four very generously. To top it off the s’mores was a great pleasant ending to the entire experience.

I came with a group of 10 adults for my birthday this weekend. We had a great experience. The table was comfortable (though the benches could have been cleaned a bit better before we arrived). The service was great - we got some of the price fixed meals for big groups which was fantastic & easy - we didn't even have to pick anything out. Everything was pre set & meat, veggies, sides, etc just kept on coming. We enjoyed the drinks as well! The s'mores were a hit too & they had a fun birthday song at the end! It was a bit loud in general, but to be expected from a place that hosts large groups. Overall great experience & we even saved $25 off the check with their app.

I would definitely recommend for the food & drinks but the service leaves a lot to be desired. They have a timeframe for diners and they have a tendency of rushing folks.

The miso soup was plain taste - there was no ‘miso’ flavor ! Some of the beef for BBQ were quite chewy. The fried chicken (appetizer) was very good.

Seats and tables need to be refurbished. Fabric was torn on our seats. Tables were all scratched up.
Otherwise, food and service were great!!!

All food was over salted. The place is old and worn out, the service is ok though. From my point of view some renovations and adding some healthier options to the menu might help.

Typical Japanese BBQ restaurant, but it's not easy to find this quality in NY. I just used for lunch, so the quality was decent, but it seems there are some special kinds of meat in the menu. The more you pay, the better quality of meat you can eat.

Came here after work with a friend. The only thing is that they push you out after a period of time. Otherwise, the place is great for afterwork drinks & apps. The happy hour is really the draw with select items being half priced. The ambience is vibrant and it is pretty loud but the food is decently seasoned. Definitely great for parties, date night or a family meal.
