A gem hidden away on Clinton Street. A real value for a high end kaiseki dinner.

One of the best dining experiences I’ve ever had. Sat in a wonderfully decorated isolated, well heated from beneath, cubby outdoor on the chilly street (Covid Re-Open). The heat was perfect. Service was top level, 6 course Omakase was delicious and approachable. Didn’t find anything too “fancy” or over the top; very well planned and executed menu. Overall experience puts this in my Top 10 Worldwide. And considering it wasn’t terribly expensive for a tasting menu, that gives it bonus points!

Having been a fan of Yopparai for years, I wanted to try the new Yopparai Ronin. It’s brand new and what an amazing experience! It’s a chef’s tasting, like an omakase) and the variety of flavors of the raw and cooked fish, meet and vegetables was sublime!

My fiance and I came here during our staycation and had a wonderful experience. We had the five course set meal and were blown away by the high quality and tastiness *every single* item on the menu. The washu beef was incredibly tender and the unagi was wonderfully soft and yummy. The homemade tofu is just perfect and we loved how it was served in the hotpot over the small fire. The service is absolutely impeccable. You will be transported to Japan when you sit down at this restaurant which is great during the pandemic when we can't really travel. We had an amazing time and recommend this place 100%!

As a fan of Yopparai and Asazu, I was thrilled to hear the team was opening a new, more laid back music-themed izakaya. Delicious dishes, great drinks, awesome decor and hospitality as always. Congrats!
