We got here right when they opened and were seated immediately. Service was great. Very good quality overall, especially unique is the deep-fried small silver fish (shirauo kara-age).

The food here is great. I had a chicken skewer meal and it was delicious; the chicken was cooked just right. A friend had a savory pork dish which I couldn't resist trying. Except for the sign outside luring you in, the place is very easy to miss, and once inside you may feel a bit crammed....And so this brings me to the reason for a 4 star rating as opposed to the 5: We came here during lunch and felt rushed from the onset. We expected mediocre service based on other reviews, and so weren't surprised when we explained to the waitress we needed a few more minutes to look at the menu and she simply walked away without even as much as a nod. Despite the poor service, I'd still recommend Yakitori Totto for the food alone.

I was never a huge fan of skewered foods, but a friend took me here and it was amazing! The food tasted delicious and everyone who works there was very friendly. I recommend it if you want a unique Japanese experience.

Great yakitori, lots of variety of them as well - ranging from veggies to pork. Try 1 of as many types as you could. All the skewers that I've tasted so far have been perfectly seasoned and cooked. Apart from the skewers, tried the hot udon and the two types of tofus (cold bamboo(?), and agedashi) - I'd recommend the agedashi but not so much of the cold tofu (great tofu, but seemed too bland for my taste). Lovely and tasty place nonetheless.

great yakitori, long waits. I believe you can hang out at the karaoke place next door while you're waiting. sleek spot and the sister ramen spot is nice as well.

You wouldn't think you could feed a restaurant based on the output of two very normal looking hibachis, but they do. This is not a place to play it safe- get a skewer of something exotic like chicken hearts (tastes like chicken!) and treat your taste buds to some perfectly grilled meat.
