I visited for the first time because a friend arranged it for me. I was told that reservations cannot be made until quite some time in advance, which makes sense.

Counter seats only, total 7 seats❓
Thanks to the general and the staff who kept a nice distance even when we first met, I was able to have a relaxing and fulfilling conversation with a friend for the first time in a while.
Thank you 😊

Of course, each piece of yakitori is carefully grilled, making it the ultimate in pasteurization.
It seems to be a system where you can bake until you stop using a flat rate system, so the cost performance is extremely good.
At the end, it seemed like you could order any number of oyakodon, soborodon, or egg-kake rice.

Ah, I want to go again! ️


Opened in July as a sister restaurant to Yakitori Abe in Meguro. Even though it had just opened, there was a two week wait. There are about 8 seats, but due to the coronavirus, the number of people is limited to 6. There was quite a distance between the seats next to me, so I felt safe and was able to relax without worrying. Like Mr. Abe, he uses date chicken for the chicken, but he has tried something new in preparing the chicken, so the texture is a little different than Mr. Abe's. Everything I ate was delicious, and I ate a lot and drank a lot and it cost about 10,000 yen per person. Usually around 6-8000 yen. The customer base and atmosphere are calm, and it seems easy to use.

If I had to say, it's a bit difficult to access, but it already meets the needs of the neighborhood. I can't make a reservation...

I use Zalto for all my wine glasses. I only drink champagne, but Zalto makes the taste of wine even more delicious. The wine list is also quite good, so I highly recommend it.


This yakitori is definitely recommended.
Delicate and simple deliciousness made by a female chef.
The atmosphere is excellent and you will be healed by the care only a woman can give.
It's difficult to make reservations at this restaurant, so I highly recommend you give it a try!!
