Who knew an amazing yakiniku restaurant exists in a small alley way! Just from the outside vibes would never think this place has good meat. We let the staff choose our meat selections, which came out to be a lot but very yummy. I’ve never thought the intestines were yummy. Just the marble color of the meats were top notch. The inside is very small and you can only stay for two hours. We got a reservation at 4pm and there was a long line before 4. Definitely make a reservation way ahead of time if you want prime dinner time. Only Japanese menu available no English speaking staff. Make sure to come with someone who speak Japanese


Fabulous staff, great atmosphere and ofcourse brilliant food


My gf and I were craving for some Yakiniku and found this place on Google Maps. When we arrived, it was packed and the staff initially estimated that we had to wait for 2 hours as it doesn't seem like the other customers were leaving yet. Though the food looked really good and it felt like a waste to leave since we were already there.

Fortunately for us, we only had to wait for about 10 mins to get a table. Though I do recommend making a reservation or going to the place during non peak hours as the restaurant is quite small with limited tables.

Another thing to note is that the place can get a bit smokey, though that's how you know it's authentic and part of the experience. In addition, the staff will provide you with a plastic bag for you to keep your things so it won't get dirty.

They do not have an English menu but Yuji speaks fluent English and will be able to help you out. He's really an amazing and friendly guy who will be able to recommend you what's best.

The food was absolutely amazing! Definitely one of the best Yakiniku in Tokyo!

Lastly, the bill was affordable for Tokyo's standards. It was about 9000 yen and we had a lottt.

A must try for anyone!
