My boyfriend and I tried their yakitori omakase, and it was very filling. Aside from the 8 skewer courses, there were appetizers, a rice dish (ochazuke and oyakodon), and dessert. The shiso sorbet was nice and refreshing, but my hojicha creme brulee was definitely burnt.. My favorite courses were the chicken meatballs and oyakodon. We sat outside, but I think I would have enjoyed indoor dining more. The outdoor tents weren't very nice, but at least there were quite a few heaters. Service was fast and attentive though even when we were the only ones outside. I think the menu was fairly priced, about $100/person for more than 10 courses. It was a lot of chicken though, so I don't think I would come again until I am really craving chicken.

This was definitely a super fun experience. First, when it comes to covid precautions, they take your temperature and also the seats by the chef's counter are all sectioned off with transparent dividers. There is also a bottle of hand sanitizer per table which was super useful! When seated, the waitress was super kind and explained to us the menu, and even recommended that along with the chef's omakase, people usually order 2-3 more skewers. The pro and con of the ordering system was that you had to decide all your skewers first thing, and you can't really "add on" any skewers at the end. However, I do understand that there is often an order that chefs want to present the meal so it makes sense (i.e. lighter pieces earlier on and heavier pieces later on). The skewers themselves were so amazing. They do give you some seasoning on the side, but most of them were just as delicious without them. My favorite were the japanese okra, chicken oysters, and chicken hearts. It was my first time trying chicken hearts, and who knew that was going to be one of my favorites! Everything is so simple and clean and delicious. The tender chicken belly skin was super amazing as well. My boyfriend and I ordered chef's omakase, a carafe of sake, and a glass of beer each, and two extra skewers each. We were completely stuffed by the end, and almost felt like we didn't need the extra two skewers, but the two extra ones we ordered flavor wise was worth cramming into our tummies. The chef who was cooking right in front of us was super nice, and asked us several times if we were enjoying our food- which we were the whole time! Another pleasant surprise was my boyfriend's birthday celebration. I had informed them beforehand it was his birthday, and so when they brought out our desserts, they had a candle in his ice cream and the whole kitchen staff (even the chefs!) sang happy birthday and it was truly a great moment. Thank you for making our experience so memorable!

Went to Tori Shin May 15 for dinner. Again, one of the BEST meals one could ask for! Had an amazing scallop small plate, should have ordered 2! Also, get the avocado. Anything you eat here will be top quality? And delicious. Wish I lived closer!!!!! November 24 2016 Had Thanksgiving dinner at the Select Table. Chef Kono-san. Did not disappoint. The food is amazing and the service is spectacular. It is like dinning at your friends house, but your friend is a professional Chef! Casual and professional at the same time. TORI SHIN、だいすきです。
