The food was amazing. Great selection, very tasty and well executed presentation. I think their food is much better than Jenya. But the service! Yikes.

good service and food was fine! food was served too fast!!! all dishes – salad and as large good did not get to eat 40% salad before hot dishes came out nearly within minutes of each other – especially yakitori sticks – felt pressured to eat fast and not enjoy the sticks- chef should monitor servings speed say 10 minutes between dishes and guests to experience together but only eat fast so hot yakitori do not go cold

I enjoyed the fast and very helpful waiters and waitresses! The food comes in very small portions and it’s a very good place to share dishes. I personally ordered the Paitan ramen and was very pleasantly surprised with the thick broth.

Fun place to eat but not as many vegan options as I was hoping for.

The parking and location are a little off-putting, but once inside you are in for a great experience. The food is delicious. Dishes appear when they are ready hot savory and mouth watering. The pace is laid back and mellow. Staff are always happy to help and work well as a team.

Amazing restaurant with great prices for Asian food. The Cheese Fondu was my favorite.

Prices definitely did not justify the quality nor the quantity of the food that was served here. The fish did not feel fresh at all. Would not recommend the sashimi/raw fish at this restaurant.

This place has become one of my favorite restaurants to go out with friends or for dates! This place has been my first experience of trying tsukune, and while I can’t compare it to other places yet, in my opinion the flavor is awesome, meat is tender, and they have many flavor/topping options to choose from. While certain items may seem overpriced and smaller in portion, the quality and taste is great and consistent everytime I go, so I think it’s worth it if it’s a party of 2-3 sharing food. The staff is also very kind! The atmosphere is quite dim lit but very calming. It’s a great place to visit if you’re looking to wine down and indulge with others. Definitely a hidden gem meant for special occasions!
