Chicken Katsu Don
I've heard a lot of hype about this restaurant and had my doubts. After all, how good can yakitori really be? Apparently, it can be amazing! From chicken knee cartilage to the liver -- all of the greatest hits we sampled were delicious and sophisticated. Subtle notes of smoke, interesting marinades, and novel textures combine to create a special dining experience from the seemingly ordinary. We sat outside but this restaurant is best experienced indoors and we will certainly be back.
Had a fantastic experience. Food was amazing, host was helpful, and the environment was great.
Keiko and team were great!
The counter was full today, so I ate an Omakase course at the main dining table.
The appetizer confit was juicy, and the steamed oyster cherry leaves were smoked, so I enjoyed the scent. The yakitori was also delicious. I will visit you again.
Chef's Omakase counterでお食事しました。
One of the most special eating experiences- ever !
Indoor dining is BACK!!!
Yakitori Tori Shin is fantastic; attentive service, great sake selection and helpful wait staff. Omekase was terrific all around. Highly recommend.
Everything is on point, food, service, atmosphere… What a gem and surprise.
Excellent food and service, would go again.
We went to the outdoor dining room where was very comfortable and warm with a heater.
We ate chicken hot pot and it was very delicious.
The Omakase course was very reasonable for us.
The taste of the food and the quality of the service were high.
We'll be back soon!
The waiter kept pressuring us to get more food saying we weren't getting enough and that we would be hungry and that we had to order all at once because the kitchen was closing. We didn't eat half the food that we ended up ordering and ended up paying $140 per person. I was also unable to sleep due to the amount of food that we ate.
Enjoyed the omakase by the bar! Amazingly fresh grilled meat and the specials were great too. The only comment is that the omakase menu in the restaurant is priced higher (USD100 pp) than the menu that's placed outside the restaurant (USD69) because there was an added wagyu to the menu. Would be good if they gave us options on whether to add the wagyu.
This is one of the best Yakitori Restaurant in the US and even among the Yakitori restaurants in Japan.
The chicken skewers are juicy and simply favorable. Then, the tenderness and finest grade of the grill satisfies your mouth. The broth from the Omakase soup is clean and clear it's competitive to the best fond de veau from the five-star French restaurant. Ending with the homemade Shiso sorbet is refreshing and perfect to end the meal. Definitely worth to try!
Food was delicious. Maybe because of mask, but we couldn’t hear what our server was saying most of times and had to ask to repeat, and still couldn’t get some of them.
some BBQ are over cooked. The waiter talks with low voice, hard to hear. Since the day is my Wife’s birthday, I keep it quite...
The food is not worthy.
After a long time, I had Omakase in door dining. Not only yakitori but also appetizers and oyakodon were very delicious. What impressed me was the thorough measures against corona in door dining. Partitions were firmly applied between the chefs and customers, windows were opened to take in clean air, and an air purifier was attached to the AC, so I was able to eat in door dining with great peace of mind. I will come again.
It was great, we would have liked there to be more flexibility on the menu though (you cant order special skewers a la carte which is weird... at Toriko they let you do that so we were surprised).
It was excellent!! A+ highly recommend!!
Food was outstanding
They also do a great job with COVID protocols
Overall experience is good. The chicken meatball and urchins is awesome. But the chicken liver is not as good as expected. And it will be great, if you can cut the burned and sharpen top of the bamboo stick before serve it. Thank you.
Yakitori Torishin is by far the best yakitori restaurant in New York. Great service and great food; can’t be beat.
Worth every penny. Service was great. Food was out of this world. Can’t wait to go back.
We ordered Omakase and appetizer.
What we felt honestly was that it was very elaborated,nice, and delicious. We paid $200 for two people and it was a great meal. Corona is an outdoor business, warm food is warm, cold food I enjoyed it while it was cold. I felt very hard. Highly recommended for those who want to enjoy a valuable meal. See you next week Thank you to all the staff of Torishin.
Was expecting a nice dinner and after all it’s good to support local business. I noticed the price for chef’s omakase increased 10dollars, which wasn’t a big deal for us. But I’m amazed to see that we paid 200 dollars in total and the food quality is poor. I asked myself why do I want to pay 200 dollars to have chicken wings and chicken breasts and tomato?? Not to mentioned that everything tastes like peanut sauce. Some skewers are also covered in very heavy sauce. Honestly I’m really disappointed. If you are looking to have a nice fancy dinner may as well to go somewhere else.
I’ve been to torishin 4 times now, and outdoor dining, while different, still made me want to go again. The seasonal dishes, along with the staples, never disappoint. By far my favorite restaurant in the city.
Amazing Omakase dinner at outdoor seating in summer!
In summer, cold Beer and hot Yakitori go well together.
Overall this is a outdoor dining so you cannot expect more. But the value of the omakase set is not quite there and the service is very slow. Yakitori is a bit cold once it arrives at your desk.
Expensive for what it is
Torishin's Yakitori is best in NYC.
Come back soon.
In my opinion,
the taste and service are not good.
For any occasion, Torishin is always a great choice.
My go to NYC spot, I have never been disappointed.
Chef Bikram is great.
A true taste of Japan in midtown. Authentic yakitori with impeccable service.
Theres a few things in the menu (the best things) that you CANT order them if you don't do a prefix package.
And the prefix package, all the table has to order it.... if not, they don't let you.
That was wired. But other that that. Everything they did let us order was amazing.
Very disappointed that meat was not available . We were limited to mostly chicken
While a little pricey, the food was impeccable and the experience was enjoyable. The menu was a little complicated (tasting menu vs. a la carte), but it honestly did make a difference which option we chose everything we tasted was fabulous.
Always a pleasure having top notch yakitori here. One of my favorite places in NYC.
