Sumiyaki Mokumoku Google Average Rating



Absolute best yakitori experience I’ve had in Japan.

I’m a big fan of tsukune- they have varieties but of course the basic variation was the best. Unlike other places they have a cheese version which was absolutely amazing.

They also have tebasaki (chicken wing), liver and other varieties that were amazing.

The big win is the soup soaked chicken rice that takes 30m to prepare.

To note - the Chef recommends 1 week advance reservation.

Also - there are 2 branches. But I believe this one is better!


Amazing food. Really delicious


The best yakitori that I have tasted. The chef and his staff were fantastic and catered to our dietary requirements happily.
