    We have been a regular customer since Torisin was in the Upper East Side. I admire the hot and delicious yakitori and the attentive service as usual. Also, I will go to eat soon.

    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.

    Value to quality of food is not attractive, you can get better yakitori for a fraction of the cost at Tori from a few blocks away. I don't mind shelling out money but the food needs to meet/exceed the cost.

    Chicken dishes were outstanding which makes sense as that’s their specialty. Was less impressed with the scallops and should have probably asked for the waygu to be cooked beyond medium rare to get more of that char. Overall loved it and would go back. Might try omakase menu next time.

    I made my first visit and was very pleased with the quality of the food, service and ambiance. The staff was very attentive and friendly and my orders were prepared quickly. I didn't have the time or appetite to enjoy the 'omakase' offer but I intend to do that on my next visit. It reminded me of some of the upscale yakitori restaurants I visited in Japan. Truly a very special dining experience - a taste of authentic Japanese yakitori.
