I had such a great time at the omakase experience! The food was so fresh and delicious, the atmosphere was lovely, and the staff were really friendly. The prices were reasonable and I really enjoyed how each course was unique. The temperature of the fish was just right and it really enhanced the texture. The restaurant is hidden behind an ice cream shop, giving it a cozy and intimate feel. It definitely had cool 90s hip Japan vibes. Overall, it was such a special dining experience that I highly recommend!

JT, the co-owner, showed amazing customer service and was super friendly! The food was high quality and for a great value. Restaurant is intimate. Great for dates and small gatherings. Highly recommend. You won’t be disappointed. Please note the actual restaurant is in the back. You have to walk through the Poke Wave to find That Place. A total vibe! We will be back!

About the restaurant
You’ll want to put this stylish Queens addition in your personal hit list. The ambiance gives a Manhattan cool vibe with unique greek small plates & signature cocktails. The bar’s still the best place to be, whether you’re in a pair or dining solo. Catch our live Dj & celebrate date night, friends night out, & even brunch in our garden. This is everything anyone could want from a New York hot spot right in the heart of Queens.

We came for an early lunch during the week, so it was pretty quiet at Baraki. We ordered from both the brunch and regular menus. The food was excellent, and the bartender/waitress was lovely. We will definitely be back.
