Upbeat Japanese tavern in Verb Hotel
Japanese · Fenway/Kenmore · $$
A casual but still somewhat "pricey" sibling to ultra-luxe O Ya, this Fenway izakaya features "inventive" , "flavorful" Japanese small plates that pair well with thirst-slaking beverages such as Asian craft beers and "stellar" frozen cocktails; the "outrageously fun decor" – complete with graffiti-covered walls and kitschy memorabilia (hello, Hello Kitty) – befits its poolside location in the rock 'n' roll–inspired Verb Hotel.

Super cool atmosphere with great food and drink selection. Small plates are definitely small though so I would recommend ordering 3 things per person. The sashimi bowl was very tasty as were the calves brains and shrimp sushi roll. The service was also great, attentive and friendly. I would recommend this for dinner and drinks.

Great Japanese bar with good food and a terrific atmosphere! The food is fresh and has great flavors. The cocktails are also very good. The staff is warm and friendly and all have great personalities. The fact that it is part of the Verb hotel is a plus. I highly recommend this place for a quick bite or drink.

Fun, lively atmosphere with an open kitchen and awesome drinks. Really impressed with their allergen awareness- my husband has shellfish and mushroom allergies, which can be challenging with Japanese food, but the servers made sure everything we ordered was safe and warned us about any possible cross-contamination. Attentive and friendly service all around.
