I don’t usually do reviews but, simply put… Every dish was sublime from beginning to end. I don’t have photos to post because we were so consumed with the meal. Highly recommended and we will 1000% be going back!

Food was exceptional. Waygu beef melts in our mouths. But a couple of the waiter/waitresses were very rude and borderline yelled at us when we asked questions.

This was one of my go to place when I was living in Tokyo. I expected the same level of service and food, but I was very disappointed at their service although quality of meal exceeded my expectation.
I don’t think they have nailed the operations yet after 3 months of opening. After we were seated for 15min, no one came to greet us or provided water. The manager is very rude, and other servers did not know what they were doing. They need to level up their service quick.

On the plus side, the food and ambience of Yakiniku Toraji is really good. Everything we ate was really good.

On the negative, the service is horrible. Not rude, just utterly lacking. I realize that restaurants have a hard time with staff these days, but a restaurant that costs around $75 per person really should have a better handle on service. Much of the floor staff doesn't speak very good English, food came out very haphazard with long waits for basic things. Courses were served out of order and accompaniments had to be requested multiple times.

Discret from the outside, very sophisticated design from the inside, with beautiful wooden panels. Extraordinary choice of Wagyu beef in the menu, great quality, and ample quantities. Great sides of pickled vegetables, kimchi and cold Korean noodles. A wonderful experience for a reasonable price.

The menu is incredibly confusing and inflexible which took three of their servers to explain. None of their server speaks fluent English.

It is a great experience eating there. All the waitress were polite and helpful. One of the ladies helped us and she was very knowledgeable on the cooking time for each kind of meat. One of then appetizers was raw beef, it was amazing!
