Fabulous restaurant with great flair and a fantastic sommelier, named Vincent.
Trust him and experience a great champagne, wine, sake experience with great foods.


really great Yakitori restaurant with excellent wine paring and affordable price. Only thing can be improved is the whole course takes us about 3 hours that night, can be even better if ends in 2h 😄


These are all very delicious. You will love it. But I feel this is more like a business meal place, not like a normal Yakitori place. If you like traditional Yakitori place, you might feel different (not what you expected). Very delicious.
