Upstairs Japanese yakitori spot transporting diners to Tokyo via grilled skewers & a bustling scene.- Google
"I really like their BBQ skewers as well as their lunch menu only ramen."
"The carafe of hot sake washes everything down nicely."

I am grateful Yakitori Totto is so close to my work so I can go there often. Lunch traffic is definitely much better than the dinner crowd! I really like their BBQ skewers as well as their lunch menu only ramen. You can't go wrong with the cow tongue, bacon with asparagus and pretty much anything! I plan on coming back every week!

Visited twice during a three day trip in NY, will definitely come back in the future! Highly recommend if you like intimate style yakitori shack.

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.

Great quality, palatable, Japanese food. 'Yakitori' in Japanese means grilled chicken, but this place has more than chicken to offer. Almost every grilled item here looks mouthwatering but these are the ones I think are worth a mention and a must-try. * Negi Pon - pork loin w/ scallion & ponzu - Best of all the grilled items here. * Yaki Nasu Miso Dengaku - eggplantw/ miso paste - Looks great, tastes even better. * Chicken breast fillets w/ wasabi & salt - Bigger than most other grilled items. Love the wasabi touch. * Asparagus wrapped in bacon - Aparagas and bacon, what's not to like?! * Mushroom wrapped in bacon - Same as above * Meat balls coated with rice - Found it slightly bland, but not many places have this dish. Worth trying. I suggest sitting at the bar than at the table and watch them make your dish in front of you. There's usually a 15-20 min wait. Portion sizes are small, so you get to try multiple items in 1 sitting.

I expected the food to be better but it was kinda salty and some of tastes were funny. Also there is a minimum of 20$ per person per wanted or not you have to order ... which is not smart if it's late and you have to go to sleep (as it was my case)...but hey nobody forces you to eat what you ordered. Anyway I will not visit them again

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.
