We went here for dinner. The atmosphere was very nice, and the staff was very friendly. The skewers were great!

Small restaurant on a corner. There is no english signs outside but they have an English menu. You can order a predefined set of yakitori or à la carte. Try the chicken meatballs, they taste delicious with a ginger flavor, chicken with basil and chicken...More

The menu is extensive, with chicken, sirloin steak, and pork rib choices (among others). In addition, sitting at the bar and watching them cook the food is fascinating, especially when you see them juggle dozens of different orders. Finally, the food is outstanding. We ate...More
