Delicious grilled skewers. Some cold dishes heavy on the oil. Overburdened servers with slow service at dinner hour.

I cannot lie. From the pictures of what I saw on the website this place looked good.

But honestly it was AMAZING. Go here. have some beer and Nigori sake.

Its not expensive and worth every bite and sip.

Food was good and service was excellent, there’re tons of Japanese beers to chose from to go with fried foods, and yakitori. Delicious! We enjoyed the experience, will definitely going back again.

Four of us got a few appetizers and some ramen. We got the Black garlic ramen and the brown butter ramen. Some of the best broth if ever had in this city. Some of our beer tasted like it had gone bad but we didn’t care bc the food was so good

I had buta no kaku (very good), as well as skewers of squid, zucchini, and mushrooms (good). Liked them all. All served in disposable containers.
Also had the Kyoto Matcha IPA, which I thought looked very fun, tasted OK. It's way more green than my camera captured, with ingredients listing food colorings.

The vibe was great and while the food wasn’t bad at all, it was served on plastic/throwaway containers that made the overall experience lackluster. I suspect it has to do with Covid, but other restaurants are back to using real dishes and cutlery.

A wonderful place for a birthday dinner. I told our server Yoshi to take care of us, and he absolutely did! Pork buns to die for.

I reserved a table for a part of 4 as a birthday “brunch” for a friend and the manager there was MORE than welcoming and extremely amazing! The food was delicious, the lychee and sake slushees were tasty, and we even had a special matcha-style-sake bomb that was to die for! 10/10 Will be returning again and would recommend!

I attempted to order a small beer which was clearly advertised on the menu but was told that I could only order a large beer. I simply wanted a small beer so the waiter went to ask his manager but the manager was not prepared to change his mind. What poor customer service - we shall never visit again.

Great food and HUGE selection of Japanese beers. The food was served quickly and it does operate like an izakaya. Will come again for sure.
