    Brilliant omakase. Always love this place and last night did not disappoint. Each course was a delicious surprise. And for only $75 each - it’s a real value. We left stuffed but not before enjoying the amazing panna cotta.

    In 2022, there is no vegetarian menu. The few vegetarian or pescetarian choices were not good. The place was cramped. It just didn’t make sense: the wine was tasteless, the cocktail undrinkable. Whenever a restaurant provides you a menu with pictures, it makes it look cheap, which doesn’t fit with what they want to portray. A definite absolute no

    I had better experience last time (before pandemic). We were on the table for almost 8 minutes without someone give us a water and taking orders from us. The skewer were above average and the chicken with scallion is amazing.

    Unfortunately, this restaurant is far from a Michelin star Omakase experience. They were so busy they forgot half of our skewers and had to bring everything at once later. At that point the food was cold. We sat for 45 mins without having food and they kept saying sorry.

    My husband and I loved our dinner meal here, from reception to requested cozy corner table. The Kokuto Plum Wine on the rocks was perfect with our order:Breast w/ Plum Shiso, Tender Loin Wasabi, Chicken Meat Ball, Thigh Yuan Sauce and Zucchini. The A%Grade Wagyu 55g was super tender and delicious. We finished our meal with Shiso Serbet. We also ordered the Torishin Bento for a later snack. It was the best bento box lunch we've had. Will continue to keep Tori Shin as a favorite Yakitori restaurant in NYC.

    What a delicious and reasonably priced yakitori restaurant. We were very pleased to order the $ 70 14 plate omakase course and the $100,15 plate Special omakase course with a choice of A5 Wagyu beef or Iberia pork. I will come back again.

    Had the omakase special for Mothers Day. Positives: the restaurant staff are great and friendly, the food was really good and made me rethink how delicious chicken can be. Negatives: the meal took 3 hours and most of it was just waiting (seeing how they were only doing prix fixe omakases, I would expect better pacing throughout the meal), the restaurant ambiance was very disappointing (the space was rundown and minimalistic in not a great way).

    When you come 25 min to a restaurant and they tell you they out of 1/2 the things on the menu, that's not good service. I love their food but this is a high end restaurant where they shouldn't be out of all their items.

    Except that our table was rushed a bit and the fact that we couldn’t really understand what the server was saying about each dish, overall really enjoyed most of the dishes. Would recommend both the omakase and a la carte.

    Sayaka was our server for the night and her attention to detail, service, and descriptions of every plate made the experience so special. The food was an entire experience. We did the chef’s Omakase and I have to say it was one of the best experiences I’ve had to date. We went to celebrate my birthday and the crew sang happy birthday to me as well. It was really precious. I loved it so much and can’t wait to go back.
