It's Korean BBQ but it's definitely a Japanese place. Bottom line is that the food is fresh and good! You have to take your shoes off and leave them on a shelf (individual cubbies). No chairs but there is a hole under the table so...More

An incredibly positive surprise for Asian barbecue fans! The restaurant is fairly unassuming from the outside, and they make you take your shoes off as soon as you enter. The atmosphere is casual, and the table setting is spacious and well aerated, which is unusual...More

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
