Terrible service, very slow and inaccurate. Waiter forgot a few things. Over 2 hours duration to eat. One dish was brought every 10 minutes. Did not enjoy the experience at all. Most of the food was cold, especially the meats. We ordered a lot of dishes but portions was so small, we had to grab burgers afterwards to fill up. Way too expensive, not at ALL worth it!

Wish there was chicken cartilage on the menu. There are better places for yakitori in LA and the rap soundtrack is a turn off.

Restaurant is in a courtyard of a shopping center which is currently quite active and has a loud Christmas light show every hour. The food was awesome - service a little slow but they were pretty busy and seemed to be a bit under staffed. Overall great spot and will return.

I really love this restaurant. It has a unique array of food and the cocktails are great as well. The recent time I dined at the restaurant, the Bartender hadn't shown up and I felt bad for the waiter.

Did not find much flavor in any of the eight dishes we ordered. I was excited to try the sweet corn & jalapeño tempura. Barely any jalapeño flavor. If I hadn't read it was in there I wouldn't have known.

The food here is consistently great. It’s one of our favorite spots for well-executed yakitori and the karaage is some of the best we’ve eaten. The beverage list offers a lot of variety and I often find a new Japanese craft beer that I haven’t tried before. It’s proximity to Staples makes this our “go to” pre-Laker game meal.

The oysters and hamachi, yum! And the Black Karaage was crunchy, tender and excellent!

A little hard to find the first time. But nice service, the food was really good, and plenty of self-parking which was $4 with validation. The outside area wasn’t crowded, and very enjoyable overall.

I got a reservation for 5 at the yakitori bar because I saw it as an option on open table.

However when I arrived, a gentleman told me that they had just seated two people at the bar and that there was no room to seat my party there at my reservation.

I was disappointed because I really wanted to sit at the bar, however fortunately we were given a seat inside at a table quickly.

If you guys can’t control bar reservations, please take it off as a reservation option, as it is misleading.

Great food, super fun experience. Waiter was nice but SO slow. Went 20-30 minutes at a time without checking on us. A couple things we ordered never came despite asking about them multiple times. But the food is amazing and I would definitely go back!

Great food, didn't enjoy the eggplant but more a personal preference than a problem with item! Great cocktails. I'd suggest in door seating rather than outside if you want to avoid the craziness that DTLA has to offer

A few kinks here and there but they tried their best with the service, and once you got the food it didn't matter. I think the bartender was a little too chatty with people at the bar so the drinks came out slowly, but the owner guy with the big beard was great and each dish we had was great.

Outside area has a moderate noise level, interior is very loud, with an odd soundtrack of old school soul and annoying repetitive dance music. Food is quite good and prettily presented, and prices are quite reasonable given the location. Service is friendly and fairly fast - this is a good choice for a pre-theater or event dinner.
