It's Korean BBQ but it's definitely a Japanese place. Bottom line is that the food is fresh and good! You have to take your shoes off and leave them on a shelf (individual cubbies). No chairs but there is a hole under the table so...More

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
