Great soft serve, cute options. Definitely great for kids!! They loved the fish shaped cones. Matcha soft serve is delish.

Quick service. Delicious! Lovely presentation. Loved the cone with red bean paste at the bottom! I wish there was some inside or outside seating.

Stopped in after lunch with my girlfriend and got another reliably perfect traditional taiyaki with red-bean paste for an extremely thoughtful price. Made professionally, a guaranteed even-spread of red-bean paste makes for a delicious, warm and cozy treat that doesn't leave you oversaturated with sugar....BUT, if you ARE in the mood for something a little extra, they have no end of fun and exciting ice creams and toppings to add to your taiyaki. Definitely will get one of those next! Truly can't recommend this place enough, the staff even wrote happy birthday and drew a little birthday cake on our paper bag because they heard it was my girlfriend's birthday. A beautiful experience all-round.More

They were friendly, and the ice cream was delicious. The cones were absolutely incredible. I had a cone with custard, vanilla ice cream, condensed milk, and coconut sprinkles.

What an awesome spot! Ice cream was delicious, such a great variety. The soufflé pancakes are out of this world. The employees were amazing. They went out their way to help my family with our Subway trip plans back to our hotel. Don't miss this...spot!More

The green tea ice cream is good - it's a good balance between creamy and bitter and isn't sweet. The red bean paste at the bottom of the taiyaki isn't anything of note and is insignificant in scope of everything else to eat, but it's...plated in a very cute manner. Given the portion size, quality, and popularity of the restaurant, the prices are reasonable. There's VERY limited seating inside the restaurant, so be prepared to order and leave.More

Our friend, local to NYC took us here and it was delicious and the most unique ice cream dish I’ve ever had. The waffle cone was delicious and had a creamy custard inside. And, the ice cream itself was very good quality. Messy, but worth...it.More

Well done. Small but it tastes wonderful. I had the strawberry and mango. The sparkling juice is a must. Super refreshing.

While we were in Chinatown, my niece and I stopped by for an ice cream cone. They were adorable! Certainly Instagram worthy. And tasty! I went all in with matcha and roasted matcha ice cream, red bean paste, and mochi--and it was incredible. Though they...certainly have more approachable flavors (vanilla and chocolate ice cream, custard filled cones, etc.) for the slightly less adventurous as well. "Fish ice cream" was certainly a hit with my teenage niece.More

Delicious ice cream and cones. Whenever my family is in NYC or Miami it's a must for fish ice cream. The fish cones filled with custard are delicious and the ice cream is good as well. Service is always good.

The service was fast, friendly and efficient. The cones were adorable. No one in our group truly loved the ice cream and only one person enjoyed the cone. Get one for your group, take the pictures and save yourself some money.

We made the trip and because of the smog, they were understandably closing early. However, they still let us in and gave us an incredibly good deal on their mochi donuts, which was so kind of them. When we're back in NYC we'll 100% come...for the ice cream!More

I also would assume they are but didn’t ask for sure. Certainly not vegan but very likely vegetarian.

They have a sign in their shop that instructs guests to inform them of any allergies you have. Perhaps this is because they have information or other options for you.
