The experience was great! I usually don’t bother writing reviews unless I am treated badly. But this restaurant is truly outstanding.

Chicken are grilled perfectly and you can smell the delicious in the restaurant. The waiter-table ratio is great and we never need to wait for someone for service.

The whole Culinary team is energetic. You can see the harmony of cooking in their stations.

Please consider open a California Bay Area branch. :)

Server was great. Kitchen ridiculous slow and poorly timed. In fact one of our dishes never made it to the table 1 hour later!! Food bland and not worth the price.

Food was good but the kitchen service is incredibly slow. Went on a Tuesday night and didn’t get all our food until 3 hours later. If you didn’t get a seat at the counter / omakase table your whole experience is just going to be waiting for food all night long.

Ordered the chef menu with the hope of trying all the best they have to offer. Super disappointed with lots of chicken plates with similar taste in a 15 course menu. It was the most boring menu. Will not go back.

We enjoyed the meal and server was helpful. the yakitori chicken pieces tasted somewhat bland and perhaps too well done compared to our past experience. The arrangement of the restrooms should be reconsidered as my wife was very disturbed by a man coming out of the so-called mixed use bathroom, especially when the other one across is labeled “men”.

The room upstairs is claustrophobic. We each ordered the $70 menu but did not have the total yakitori skewers that the menu said. Chicken skin and tofu ?
The waitress was very nice but it was difficult to understand her. Big bill but not a good experience unlike other times where we were downstairs and had great food.

I visited with a friend and we both had ten skewers omakase and split a bottle of wine. The timing for the servers to bring out yakitori/skewers was impeccable, and I (as a previous restaurant worker) know that it's a very hard thing to do! Food was beyond delicious and wonderful with the dry Riesling. Will definitely come again.

Food is incredible. Phenomenal. The skill and artistry of the chicken masters is without equal in NYC. Very authentic Japanese experience. A little pricey for (admittedly high end) street food, especially with sochu thrown in...but pretty worth it.

Highly recommend but just don't tell them it's a birthday thing. It's embarrassing and I don't think the chef likes it. When the birthday candle came out, the chef said Seriously?
It made him and the other chefs stop working just to clap and sing. But the chicken is good and worth going back for more. The icecream was packed tight and texture was not creamy so I'll get something else next time.

Food is fantastic. Pricing a little on the high side if you opt in for all the specials which are not part of the standard skewer fixed menu.. Service was impeccable. My wife and I had a great time. We did not have any alcohol so can't comment on that.
