It is a great and authentic place. The majority of the clients are from japan. They have a very large and interesting menu. Seafood, sushi, dumplings, noddles and atipical cuts of meat. Really recomendable.

I hadn't been here in years and one of my friends and I decided to stop by. It was packed but we were able to snag a table quickly. They have a massive menu. Lots of options. Most things are good or very good. Few...More

We've been coming here for 20 years; now we come with our children. It is delicious and so much fun. Cheap, yummy food on a stick, with $5 glasses of sapporo. Recently we had grilled chicken hearts, sauteed squid legs and these unbelievable skewers with...More

We loved Yokocho. The food was fresh and delicious. We had about 8 different dishes between the 4 of us and everyone was wonderful. I especially liked the tuna and quail eggs.

If you are looking for sushi, Yokocho is not for you---they don't have it on the menu. However, Yokocho is very authentic, you even feel like your in Tokyo---small, bustling, noisy, with a friendly staff. I wasn't familiar with many dishes on the menu so...More

Yes, you do feel transposed to a little alley around Shinjuku station in Tokyo. Typical Izakaya with fried goods off the griddle (yakitori). The highlight for me was definitely the yaki-onigiri (grilled rice ball), something that is hard to find outside Japan. Sapporo on tap,...More

If you want to understand the non-sushi side of everyman, Japanese cuisine, Yokocho is a great starting place. this is not fussy gourmet fare, this is terrific comfort food. and for a bonus the wonderful Angel Share bar shares the upstairs space.

Don't blink or you'll walk right past, and that would be a darn shame. Unbelievable selection of delicious plates! I've never had a bad meal here. Service is prompt and efficient, price is right, and the atmosphere is authentic. Don't miss it.

I've been coming here for many years. This is not a fancy place. It's an izakaya style restaurant. This means they have an assortment of dishes, that are meant to be shared, while drinking alcohol. Now that I go with my toddler, I might have...More

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
