“Great food but small servings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014 via mobile

Visited this place based on the tripadvisor recommendations. Whilst the food is without a doubt lovely and feels very Japanese, it is just too small a serving (pretty common though in japan). We sat at the bar after removing our shoes at the entrance and really enjoyed the atmosphere of the place, tried a few differet things which as i said were all good.

“You will be just super happy eating here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014 via mobile

I came here for the Japanese BBQ and sitting in front of the bar. The food are very nice but the atmosphere is just soooooooo good. You will feel so happy watching them cooking and washing dishes without know actually why. People work here are definitely passionate about their job and they laugh all the time. They are not like general Japanese people who are polite and quite. They are very young and passionate which will definitely make your whole experience happier and unforgettable.

Highly recommend the beef Sirlon, avocado, sesame pudding, peach flavor wine. Don't miss out!!! U will regret!!!!!

“Best Meal Experience Ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

Everything was yummy...except the grilled rice cake (not sure what it's called in Japanese...yaki onigiri?) was a bit too hard. Favorite was the bacon wrapped lotus root...the root was soooo sweet. Everything tasted great, really. You just should try a little of everything if you have the appetite. Go early. It's always packed.

For the first time visitor...this place is hard to find since the sign is so small. The facade looks like wooden planks. And if you see smoke/steam coming out, you've found it.

“Awesome. Just awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014 via mobile

Yakitori at its best. Great atmosphere. Cozy little joint in the heart of Roppongi. Open till 5 in the morning. Perfect for a bit after a night out.
