Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

don't miss out on this best yakitori! I'm also convinced that whatever else you choose will be really satisfying! The service was friendly and smooth. Highly recommended especially for some excellent yakitori.

I was so excited for this place during my week in Tokyo based on the amazing reviews. A mix of people saying “the best yakitori in Tokyo”, “their favourite restaurant in Tokyo” etc.. I was so excited and honestly left disappointed. It wasn’t bad, don’t...get me wrong… but it’s just average, or even less than average, for yakitori. There are dozens of places just as good but so many that are so much better. It’s true the place is mostly foreigners so it must have some traction on blogs/instagram that people are seeing. It just isn’t anything special and I was disappointed that I used up one of my dinners here. A lot of the skewers are veggies wrapped with meat but they put such a big clump of veggies in the middle that it doesnt cook well… lettuce, green onion etc. A little odd… if you are staying near it and have never had yakitori before, perhaps it’s ok.. but otherwise skip it and certainly don’t go from either parts of town to try here. I think some of the reviews are fake as I can’t see how anyone can be so happy with the food. I’m trying to be fair, as the food was ok.. but just ok.More

We came here 10 years ago and booked in advance for this revisit. Ordered the pork belly and iberico stick, and add on some special ham wrapped around greens - all were very good. Service was friendly as they gave me good refills of cabbage....Highly recommended especially for some excellent yakitori.More

We reached there slight before 6, the restaurant already 70% full. We sat at the ‘window’ seats. The young waiter is friendly and speak English well. We ordered different skewers , one each to try. Once you start, really can’t stop keep repeat your orders...like others. The foods overall taste very nice. Atmosphere is good to have a relax chit chat with friends. We will come again next time in TokyoMore

Came based solely on reviews and need for a menu that could provide for a non meat eater. Definitely a meat fest location! Excellent ambience, fun and full on team, fast and efficient service, great food!! We were in and out in an hour. Young...team couldn’t do enough to help, we being English speakers and the English menu helped. Really fun, and would definitely return.More

Brilliant Teriyaki Supper. Great menu, fast service, brilliant delivery with the food and an overall excellent experience for the family. With central location just off of Roppongi Crossing this is a quiet, yet, bustling dinner. Can't recommend it enough.

We loved this restaurant five years ago when we first came to Tokyo and returned this Christmas to an equally great experience. Both times we came to Jomon it was the first night we arrived from the US and were exhausted but yet we all...(5 of us) view it as one of our favorite restaurants ever. The food is not only great but there are always interesting new yakitori options to try out. The space is very tight but this only serves to make it more cozy. The atmosphere can be described as very lively, but table conversations are still very manageable. My sons enjoyed all the various beer options and the sake. Having enjoyed yakitori in the states, this is a totally different experience and one I highly recommend if visiting Tokyo. Jomon is very small so you absolutely need a reservation.More

The great food is matched by the great atmosphere, with the team shouting out to each other to keep orders and service flowing. We had a couple of chef’s recommendations plus a few choices of our own, all of which were great. You must book...to avoid disappointment as it was packed. Seating is spread between bar and sunken tables which are great for families of 4.More

This is not a large place and a reservation is highly recommended. We walked up early in the evening without a reservation and we got luck. The food is amazing. Grilled fresh and there is a smokiness in the air from the cooking. There are...a few tables in the restaurant otherwise you are sitting at the bar watching them cook or sitting at the window counter where it it inside and outside seating. The meat is full of flavour, the deep fried corn is delicious and the yams are great as well. We went with the chef's special selection or you can order piece by piece. They have English menus and the staff are pretty good English speakers.More

This place was my favorite in Tokyo. You need to make a reservation to insure eating here. It is a small place with amazing charm. You have to remove your shoes as you go in and the seating is shoulder to shoulder so be prepared....The skewers are incredible and the pork belly is the best I've ever had! They have great beer and sake.More

I don't believe they had an email that they used to coordinate reservations. I would probably have the hotel you're staying at call on your behalf to make a reservation. I didn't make a reservation and was put on a list... More
