Yakitori Totta turned out to be such a disappointment. After reading so many great reviews, we were excited about our dinner destination. Upon arrival we grew even more excited as the restaurant has a very authentic ambiance to Yakitori places in Japan. Additionally, the staff were all Japanese, which for me is usually a positive indicator of what's to come.... More

supposedly the best yakitori, just that the pieces on the stick were so small that it didn't feel like i was eating much.. yakitori is after work comfort food, not something fancy, i'm just not down with the whole making it fancy thing..

I used to like this place, but last time I went there with my family, there was a rubber band in an appetizer.

yakitori was not bad, really liked the rice balls. Waitress was probably having a bad day- a bit rude towards us.

Very good food. Expensive drinks. Sake can be old at times. Service decent. But if you want to try yakitori this is the place.
