Village Yokocho is a great spot for good solid Japanese food-- not just sushi, but rice balls, grilled Izakaya style tapas. It's not the best ambiance but is unexpectedly spacious and can accommodate a good sized group. The food is solid and delicious. I must admit-- It's one of my go-to spots if I need Japanese or Asian groceries since Sunrise market is right next door. If you're up for a little more than just good Japanese food, I'd suggest asking what's behind the door at the top of the stairs. Angel Share, the speakeasy, operated by the same team is amazing. Fantastic cocktails and a smaller menu of Japanese Izakaya.

One of my favorite Japanese restaurent in NY and affordable! This is one of the rare Japanese owned restaurent, so the food is really authentic and very good! Not so many sushi or rolls, but many others delicious dish to try.

Would go for 3.5 if possible. Enjoyed the ambiance and the food was ok. The staff was sassy, but quick. I'll probably go back for a fun, casual dinner, but won't make a point of it.

Yokocho is one of the most laid back Japanese spots near St. Mark's (the mecca of Japanese cuisine in the city) while also being one of the most delicious. They specialize in a izakaya experience or yakitori, sticks of meat grilled open face and marinated to teriyaki perfection. The best one to get has to be the chicken meatball, although asparagus and bacon is charming too. Everything on the menu is shareable and many dishes are designed more as tapas. Their garden salad is oddly one of my favorites in the city, spicy tuna is a popular choice as is their kimchi fried rice. They arguably make the best grilled rice balls in the city and one of their most unusual item is one of my favorites, consisting of a chicken cutlet, lettuce, tomato, scallions topped with cheese, ketchup and mayo. It sounds a bit gross but it's delicious. For drinks, I recomend the G sake. Bottom line: Even though it's probably the equivalent to Japanese comfort food, Village Yokocho is one of the coolest and most laid back spots to bring your friends to.

A variety of Japanese and Korean dishes. Food: - Take yakitori combo: Chicken and scallion - tender meat, juice scallion Pork - thin slices of pork belly Duck and scallion - not bad Beef - a bit chewier, maybe over cooked Chicken ball - inside flavor is a bit bland - Yako onigiri with salmon roe - Very nicely grilled - crisp and salty from soy sauce brushed on outside. Salmon roe is probably better with non grilled version - Pork with Kim chi and veggy - Veggie was basically scallion and some thinly slicked shitake mushroom; you'll need to order a side of rice, as this did not come with it.

i love this place. It's one of the best that I have tried in the East Village. no disappointment in all the dishes. yakitori is very authentic. even bimbimbap is amazingly good. the hot stone pot was steaming hot even after you finish. With great service. the dessert of green tea cake was stunningly great! Definitely a go back ! Dont forget FRIED SQUID LEGS!

Loved this place! If you don't know where it is, you could easily miss it. Went here with several coworkers after happy hour on a Friday night. We were told it would be a 45 min wait but as we were getting ready to go to a bar a bunch of people left and we were able to get seated almost immediately. The menu variety is expansive so really you could get something for everyone's preferences. That being said, GET THE SPICY TUNA BOWL. It's a very innocuous menu item, but I will tell you it's a good good thing. My table ordered between 3-4 of them, they were that good! We also got a bunch of skewers, the hamachi kama (so-so) and a bunch of other things including more drinks. It's a fun spot, if you can stop in, I would recommend it. Also, the take cash/cc which is always helpful!

The menu is interesting for the area and touches on various Asian foods, seemingly with a focus on Japanese and Korean fare. You can certainly find better food in the applicable ethnic sections of the city but for East Village, it's not too bad. I prefer the noodle dishes and the wasabi pork dumplings pack a nice punch. Not a fan of the drinks but just walk outside and you can stumble into one of the many surrounding watering holes.
