    We ate here on a Friday night on a date night out in the City. We really loved this place. The grill was nice on a cold night outside. We didn’t feel like we were on top of other guests as some places can get. We ordered a bottle of wine which literally was brought to us in ice in under 2 minutes. We got the middle assortment and it really felt like they just kept bringing dish after dish of food to cook. The food was amazing on the grill. We added wagu beef to our order, and that was especially good. This place overall is a really cool experience and definitely worth a try.

    This was a 10/10. Trust the 5-star reviews. My girlfriend and I went here last minute and were amazed by our experience. Our server was Bing, she was so sweet and patient with us. We had never been to a Japanese bbq restaurant before and she did an excellent job explaining to us how everything worked and the ordering process. We ordered the spicy pork, the pork belly, the duck breast, the chicken rib & the bone in rib. It was so good, we wound up ordering more. The drinks were also delicious. We went during happy hour which is everyday, including Sunday. Their normal hour prices aren’t that expensive either, so if you go during regular hours or happy hours it is 100% worth it. Don’t guess, make that reservation!
