The shop is small: maybe space for a dozen people at the counter and perhaps another dozen at tables. As a party of one coming at lunch time, I waited 15 min foot a spot at the counter. Yakitori is one of my favorite Japanese...More

Dozens of visits; zero disappointment. The food is so good that I don't mind sitting in the cramped bar. Only downside is that the restaurant is really small and fills up really fast during dinner times.

What do you mean by accessible? Wheelchair? I would say no at first thought, there was a steep set of stairs and the dining room is close and tight- however to have absolute correct knowledge it always best to call and ask
