    As always very satisfied. Went for the omakase for the first time. Interesting selection. The dessert was a hit. The rice dish as part of the omakase may need some work, either with a sauce or some additional seasoning for the aburi. The donabe rice was great as always. Would be nice if there were more starter options. But these are all minor issues. Great dinner executed on a very high level. Good work by the staff as well.

    Delicious yakitori place and also loved they serve various parts of a chicken rather than just chicken breast and thighs. We sat at the counter seats so we enjoyed watching the chefs cooking and they also gave us chicken oysters that is not on the menu and it’s amazing.

    All the staff we could see in the restaurant greeted us. Head chef greeted us. Food was really good. Cocktails were also lovely. They initially said on the phone the omakase set wasn’t available for lunch, but when we got there, they made it for us. Had some very interesting yakitori’s. Would recommend.

    Very rare to be able to find this variety of chicken yakitori in London. But to be honest food was only fair.. I also laughed out at the donabe waited for an hour .. it’s just chicken rice.

    Without doubt the best yakitori restaurant in London. Great ingredients expertly cooked, good drinks and great service. The Omakase set menu is excellent value but also dine a la carte and ask what they have off menu in terms of the less usual chicken cuts. Try to get a seat at the counter and chat with Zac and Aman the chefs. They are very knowledgeable and hugely hospitable. Try to get in now whilst you still can.

    I'm so happy I found authentic yakitori in London, finally!! The experienced chef who trained in authentic Japanese restaurants delivers Yakitori in the most delicious way possible. My favorite is "Reba" a perfectly charcoal-grilled chicken liver that will be cooked all the way through but still pink!! The staff is very friendly and polite always. Looking forward to coming back to this new foodie spot for Yakitori with Japanese Sake.

    What a change from the old, very bad, curry restaurant that used to be here. Nicely done up as a Japanese restaurant, this place serves quite authentic yakitori style food. The portion size is definitely authentic - small! But very tasty, well cooked and well presented. The chicken hearts were my favourite, or maybe the scallop. First time I've liked gizzard, too. It's a bit out of the way. Go while it's still there!
