Yoroniku Reviews

Yoroniku Google Average Rating



Such an amazing Yakiniku place, one of our favorite restaurants on our trip to Japan! The meat was heavenly. It’s been 3 months and I still think about the wagyu and the one with truffle and raw egg. No wonder this is the second highest rated in Tabelog. The shaved ice dessert was the best shaved ice I’ve ever had. Would highly recommend!


One of the highlights was when I was in Japan. Love all the dishes and I would highly recommend this place. This restaurant I would recommend this reservation for sure! I will definitely be back and it might be the iconic restaurant I would do each time I am in Tokyo!


I booked the table through tabelog and took the most expensive course (¥21,450). I can only say that it’s worth your money. Quality of meat, services, serving time and order are perfect. I’ll come back again surely.
