    Delicious Japanese style pub fare, incredible cocktail menu, best old fashioned i have ever had, they used tonka bean infused simple syrup which added a sweet and aromatic component that actually completes the traditional old fashioned- will be the only way i drink them from now on Sandy our server was top-notch, food was great given they are sharing style plates which means we could try more dishes. Definitely recommend trying this place out

    Went here to celebrate a birthday and the experience was amazing. The staff were very attentive and took really good care of each of us. The food was super delicious and flavorful, and the drinks were delicious too. I would definitely go back again.

    Great atmosphere and the food was delicious. The perfect place to hang out with friends and family. We ordered the oysters, yokai signature maki, chicken karaage, and lobster tacos. They were all incredible! There is also a cute patio outside.

    We had reservations so as soon as we got there we were seated. Menu had enough options and food came out pretty quick. Loved the quality and quantity…a great recommend.

    The food at this restaurant is outstanding. We sampled a variety of items on the menu as shareable dishes. My fave was the lobster tacos and the scallops on the half shell but all of our dishes were amazing.

    A little underwhelmed after a month of trying to book for the brunch weekend. Underwhelmed in terms of the food that I think it’s too hyped up. It’s just ok. The service is quick and efficient. The place has a nice ambiance, (it’s a little small that’s probably why it’s hard to get a reservation). Will I rush there again for the same reason? Probably not. Nevertheless, overall is just ok.
