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 here for a date. I was craving some ramen and it was pretty late. So I looked up places to eat that had ramen, this was the first placed that popped up with decent reviews. So I decided to give it a shot. My girlfriend and I got the Pork Soup Ramen and some of the chicken skewers and... More

I admit that I am one of the restaurant partners. However, I am also a ramen maven. I just cannot get enough of it. I have traveled to Japan and been to other places in the world and been served ramen but ..... Hands Down .... Katsu's ramen is the he best!!! His Ton Katsu a ramen is to die... 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.

When our NJ friends who lived in Tokyo join us for dinner, they feel like they have returned to Japan.

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

Verry hip spot with a great food menu and drinks! Sakai, beer and other authentic Japanese wines! Tiny little spot with lots of character. All diferent cuts of meat for yakatori even organs for the adventurous. I've eaten at a lot of Japanese restaurants in NYC and this local spot has been my favorite!

This is certainly one of the best, if not the best Japanese restaurants in Bergen County. The menu is so diverse. The bar menu is also top shelf. Interestingly, the restaurant is split by a wall, such that while one kitchen feeds both rooms, one side is noisy and crowded, but if you make a reservation as we did for... More
