If I could, I would give it 10 stars. Such a heavenly experience. Friendly staff and a great atmosphere overall. The chicken was soft, tender and juicy. The “special parts” were crunchy, chewy and juicy as well. The dashi maki tamago was really a show stopper – the juices were fragrant and simply to die for. Highly recommend!

One of my favourite hideout. They served one of the best yakitori with beer in Klang Valley. Very traditional setting. Local Japanese loves this place too as most of the time, I heard Japanese conversing. They are close every Monday. It’s always packed on Friday and Saturday. They not only serve yakitori but they do serve other dishes like rice and soup.
