We were jet lagged and hungry and didn't want noodles, and happened across this yakitori place. They seem to specialize in yakitori and have a wide range of options including veggies, literally any part of a chicken you can imagine, and even beef and seafood. Some other dishes too. You can order a set meal or just a few skewers,... More

Really enjoyed the chicken gizzards, shiitake mushrooms, green peppers, chicken liver skewers etc. refreshing edamame and cucumber dishes were good too. Pros: Comfortable restaurant environment that was welcoming. An English menu with photos was available. Staff were helpful with the menu options. The... More

Great place for a snack and beer inside especially in winter to avoid the outdoors! Priced a little higher than memory lane but definitely more comfy!

This place was a surprise find in an alleyway style line of restaurants in Shinjuku. Meals were cheap (we paid ¥990ea for a massive set menu), altho the yakitori looked a little bit exxy. Food came out quick, and was delicious! Staff didn't speak English but they had an English menu which made it easy to order. Only thing that... More

If you're staying in the Shinjuku area, you would most probably pass by this place if you are checking out the Yodobashi at Shinjuku. The Yakitori is delicious. Had the Chicken set, Quail Eggs, Chicken Liver, Chicken Heart, Meat Ball with Miso and Oyster wrapped with Bacon. Also had a half portion of Soba. The meat was tender and had... More

We stopped in here because it had an English menu! Ha! The food was actually really good! I had the cucumbers and shrimp spring roll and some other things and my husband had lots of the skewers and miso soup! No complaints about the food, it was fantastic. We were shocked when we hit the bill - we felt is... More

We went as a group of 14 people to have dinner at this restaurant which was within short walking distance from Keio Plaza Hotel where we were all staying. The ambiance had a “local Japanese” feel from the entrance, past the small main door into a smoke filled ground floor kitchen and dining area. You can see through the dimly... More

Nice quite "local" feeling restaurant in middle of Shinjuku "electronics" area. The food was good, and there were a large selection of Umeshu and Sake available. The food was mostly grilled on a goal grill at the center of main hall. The Chefs greeted every entering and leaving customer with a chorused cry, so at least the seats by the... More
