Charcoal-grilled Yakiniku Izumino Reviews

Charcoal-grilled Yakiniku Izumino Google Average Rating



Reservation highly recommended unless you go at 5 pm.
I ordered 4 plates of meat for myself, here’s what I recommend:
1. Premium beef tongue 2,400 yen - the texture is not tough at all vs. the regular which I also got (I had to eat a piece in a single bite lol)
2. Premium (Japanese) skirt steak 2,400 - nicely marbled without being too fatty

I also got kalbi, a taste you’d be familiar with but a little too sweet for my liking and the high sugar content also messed up the grill very fast.

The waiters couldn’t really speak English but they’re still helpful.


One of the best meal we had on our Japan trip. Amazing quality meat that was grilled over charcoal (very rare for a restaurant to use charcoal nowadays), really friend staff, and out of this world flavors! Highly recommend if you’re in Tokyo! It was so good, we went back again on our last night in tokyo!


Terrific little place! Charcoal grill on the table (which is amazing), very accommodating service even though we don’t speak Japanese.
Food is incredible (ordered lots of tongue, tritip, garlic rice and sirloin sukiyaki, yam kimchi as highlights)
Will be a little tradition for us from now on when in Tokyo to visit Izumino-san and his family!
