If you are in the mood for truly authentic Japanese yakitori and izkaya cuisine this small joint is a must stop. The ramen is one of the best in the NYC area and definitely take a close look at the special's list.

Went here with my family, and found ourselves transported. My kids enjoyed the skewers of chicken breast and scallion and chicken meatballs. My husband and I loved the duck skewers, and the enoki wrapped in bacon. There's also a ramen menu and hotpot menu. Plus a selection of sakes to choose from. Don't come here if you're in a hurry...

I haven't even gotten a chance to delve into the ramen section or hot pot section of the menu as I tend to come here solely for the tapas! Entire wait staff as well as the chef is Japanese. Big points in my book. I usually sit at the bar on the corner to see all of the "Action" behind... More

Went for a few pints and appies. Had Japanese style chicken wings, fried pig skin, kimchi pork. All menu items were very unique and tasty. Not much real estate there so make a reservation.

The chicken skewers(preferably thighs) are unbelievably tasty and juicy. The duck and avocado salad is wonderful. Other choices are plentiful.

There are many yakitori place in NJ where they serve a chicken that can be regularly be bought at a food shopping center. This place has a chicken that is so juicy that your tongue will relay a signal to your brain with a flavor alert. LOL. The size of the chicken is very large compared to any other yakitori... More
