Turning out “Japanese comfort food” that’s “consistently delicious” , these “nothing-fancy” branches of a Tokyo-based izakaya chain provide “down-to-earth” favorites like yakitori, soba and soup bowls; given the “reasonable” pricing (and no-tipping policy), the only hitch is the occasional “wait.”

I so appreciated this non-tipping authentic restaurant. Our waiter was phenomenal. So helpful and so courteous. We genuinely enjoyed our dining experience as a whole and the food was absolutely fantastic.

Wait time wasn't too bad for NYC dinner time rush. We did try to get there as close to 6 as possible. By the time we sat, there was a longer line. Food was delicious, but the portion is a bit small compared to the price. Nice place to meet up with a friend to catch up. Staff was attentive and asked about drinks and refilling tea.

The food is excellent. Came here to celebrate a reunion with a very good friend from japan. Food came out quickly and super fresh, with a great bottle of sake on the side. To top it all off, they refuse to accept tips! (And yes, the staff was still friendly and attentive) Great place, definitely coming back.
