Select Counter is our new style tasting counter where we serve a tasting menu with a combination of our famous yakitori skewers and Japanese traditional dishes, such as tempura, and sashimi. As the name indicates, we use variety of seasonal ingredients, such as the finest meats and seafood that we import from carefully selected suppliers, including ones in Tokyo Tsukiji Market. All course menus will be served right off the Binchotan grill in front of our guest by our top chefs.

Please note this is a special section of Torishin and if you are looking for regular seating, please visit the other site. Please be advised this section is for adults only.

It was like being in a high end Tokyo eatery but the chef and staff actually spoke English. Delicious and authentic .

Wonderful select omakase dinner!
Great not only Yakitori but also High quality Fish from Japan.
I felt Torishin Select Counter is the truly Michelin Star Restaurant and the real Japanese food culture.

Always an amazing experience. The only negative thing was that they called they day before to see about food allergies and I told them that my husband was allergic to fish. The omakase itself didn't have any fish but numerous parts of the appetizers did. I'm not complaining since I got to eat mine and his, but I did feel bad that he couldn't eat any of the appetizers.

In the end, this is our go-to restaurant for any special occasion (and also just for a delicious meal for the sake of a delicious meal). It is probably my favorite restaurant in NYC and we always enjoy our meals immensely when we come.

Value for dollar is not good at all. Basically some chicken parts (probably some of the same 'parts' that went into the chicken nuggets) seasoned with salt pepper and either sake, olive oil or butter and tossed on a grill. Was not impressed with anything except for the sashimi. Even the ramen was just 'meh'. Noodles were over cooked and the broth tasted like canned that you tossed some old veggies in and cooked for a while. Would not go back. One minor thing, the check came with suggested percentage gratuities calculated. They calculated on the entire bill including tax so their 20% calculation was actually closer to 22%.

The "select counter" omakase is an exceptional, memorable dining experience—Tori Shin does incredible things with chicken (you won't believe how good the liver is), but they are also really great with other dishes as well. In June, the tasting menu included some perfectly grilled vegetables and some tempura ayu (sweetfish, which you don't see often in the US). A really wonderful meal.

As someone who dreams about visiting Japan to experience the cuisine a trip to Yakatori Shin Ton is a dream come true. The Select Counter Omakase was understated yet perfect. From the tempura, to the incredible chicken skewers ( artery is a new favorite) to the simple and pure shiso sorbet -- all great and what will know be the standard for yakitori going forward.

Tori Shin brings something different to foodies. The chef's counter Prix Fixe is courses of robata skewers specializing in chicken parts and Kobe. Each skewer part is prepared differently with unique sauces brushed on and spices applied. Each course is 1 skewer, but you do not leave hungry at all! The pace is calculated and not rushed. The interaction with the Chef Master is friendly and engaging. The sake selections are great, but pricey so pick accordingly, but you won't go wrong and the cold sake is a great accompaniment.

With all the amazing culinary choices in NYC, Tori Shin separates themselves with a different experience and a gastric delight.
Treat yourself...

Incredible experience and wonderful chefs! They prepare very unique parts of the chicken that I otherwise would have never eaten nor ordered (neck, artery, etc). They turned out to be amazing!
