My partner and I dined here for the first time using First Table. Our waiter was a young guy who was extremely friendly, attentive, but not intrusive. We ordered many dishes to try, and each one was delicious, hot, and fresh! Our highlights would be...the beef tataki, the vege tempura, the chicken thigh Yakitori, and the sashimi. The banana chocolate spring rolls were excellent too, as well as the black sesame ice cream! We would definitely recommend this place to others, and would come back again.More

We have been to Yakitori several times and always welcomed by friendly staff. Relaxed ambience with music playing in the background. Food is delicious 😋

Love the atmosphere, the friendly service and of course the lovely foods!! Is so far the best yakitori I had tried. Perfectly cooked, good portions and not overly seasoned. Strongly recommended to everyone! Thanks team!

Reasonable prices and tasty food. Head downstairs to this great little bar and restaurant. Service was pleasant and our food came out in good time. Would be happy to come back.

Four of us ordered so much food and it was so good we ate everything. It was pretty quick with food to the table and the staff were excellent. I’ll definitely be back.

During my many business visits to Tokyo I had a favorite Yakitori bar close to the Shimbashi railway station. As soon as we walked into the Yakitori House in Shortland street, I felt comfortable. It looked right and smelt right. The menu was similar to...what I was used to in Shimbashi, the service was good and the food excellent. Japanese middle of the road/Pop music added to the ambiance and I felt transported back to Japan. This is the most authentic Japanese restaurant I have been in outside of Japan. Not posh, just a knock about place were office workers gather in the evening for a drink and quick meal, before catching the train home. Loved it!More

Good location and extremely friendly staff. Tried sparkling plumb wine jelly which was worth the try. The food itself is rather average unfortunately. Soft shell crabs were incredibly small and the Karaage chicken a bit dry. Not bad for what you pay for though.
