“Amazing yakitori and shochu, loved this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013 via mobile

This place was amazing! My partner and i both got the chefs choice pf 8 skewers. They were all so good! And ones that i never would have chosen were delicious! The shochu lemon sour was also really good here. We also really enjoyed the piece of mandarin at the end of our meal! The atmosphere was also great. The restaurant is across the road from the family mart but just check the phone number out the front matches the ad. This place is a must do.

“Horses for courses”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

Somehow this place makes being in a cramp space elbow to elbow with strangers a very cool dining experience.

All starts with no sign on the front door and as you enter you are greeted with the smells of grilled meats and vegetables as soon as you get seated and comfortable the wait staff are ready to help you pick out dishes and pour your a cold beverage.

Be sure to try a variety and if your game the horse sashimi is an interesting dish worth the gamble purely for the novelty factor.

I'll be back and can see this place being a must visit every time I am in Tokyo.

“I will pile on - this place is great - best yakitori I have found in Tokyo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

Jomon is great. Hard to find as everyone has said, but very fun place. Best tasting yakitori i've had and also much cheaper than the place I usually go. Glad I found Jomon...will be going back over and over. Don't really have a recommendation - everything we tried was great, so just pick whatever sounds good to you. Don't be afraid to experiment either - it's all very good.

“What an atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012 via mobile

Not so easy to find, no sign outside but such a warm welcome from the freezing cold! Packed out when we got there at 9.30pm, we were lucky to get a spot at the counter. The recommended sake was good and cold, all the yakitori we tried were excellent - especially the pork skirt and pancetta wrapped cheese. But the best thing about this place is the amazing atmosphere!

“Great place, especially where crappy chain restaurants thrive.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

I really love yakatori, so I was really pleased to find this place in Roppongi. The other reviews say it all about this place, so I will only add a couple essential items. First, yes you can smell the place before you find it. What's key is that there is basically no sign. Look for the solid large wooden door that slides to find the place. Secondly, if you are traveling alone, they will not sit you in the main seating. You can only sit by the door in one of 2 stools with no where to put your legs except to sit side ways. Otherwise, enjoy the great food!
