Fabulous. Unique presentation delivered by joyful and informative staff in “ Little Tokyo “ section of Mexico City. Secret wine bar to the side and upstairs speakeasy Bar. A great experience with delicious food. Get the omakase!

Considero que es un lugar perfecto para una cita, el trato es muy personal y el ambiente muy íntimo y cálido, ya que únicamente hay lugar para pocos comensales alrededor de la parrilla.
Si estas buscando esa vibra tradicional de Japón, este lugar es ideal, puedes ver desde la barra como se preparan los platillos, la proteína base de este lugar es el pollo en diversas preparaciones pero no por eso deja de sorprender en cuanto a sabores y texturas, hay para todos los gustos ya seas de gustos exóticos o más conservador.

Todo muy rico, es toda una experiencia ver como te cocinan las brochetas, las mas especiales para mi gusto son la de elote baby y la de Enoki, pero todas las demás están igual de ricas y bien cocinadas, la presentación de los platos y bebidas me gustó mucho y el lugar también, el servicio es muy bueno.

Uno de los comensales me compartió ser cliente frecuente y recalcó ser el único lugar donde comía yakitori!
Comulgo con el a partir de esta visita.
Delicioso y maravilloso servicio!

Edo Kobayashi me ha sorprendido desde el día uno. No había tenido oportunidad de ir al Hiyoko y no me decepcionó ni en media brocheta. Jazz, sake, té y pequeños platillos que cuentan una historia en cada bocado. Arigato gozaimasu !

Special place. Everything is amazing, the chef de service can come across as a bit rude but staff is attentive and kind. Ambience and privacy is great, there is nothing quite like it in Mexico! Must try the baby corn, chicken buttocks and dessert. Worth a visit

Los yakitoris no están malos pero si pides el Omakase A (ponerse en manos del chef) terminas pagando $800 y comiendo brochetas que pidiéndolas por separado no llegan a los $600, me pareció caro para lo que es.

Me encanto, muy recomendable para quienes gustan de experiencias gastronómicas distintas. La atención de los chefs, cocineros, meseros es excelente. Y la comida de calidad, si lo que te gusta es comer mucho, te recomiendo no vayas con muchas hambre o de plano pedir varios platillos, pues los platos son pequeños, pero la calidad y la experiencia, bien valen la pena. Feliz de haberlos visitado, me lleve una hermosa sorpresa.

the food is great, but there’s no English menu that I have to translate every single word for ordering. That’s so inconvenient. And also the serving speed is too slow, we waited like 15 min to get each of the yakitori.

Es un lugar muy pequeño. Solo tiene asientos en la barra. El menú de degustación es estupendo. No hay un solo elemento que no nos haya gustado. El precio puede parecer alto, pero definitivamente vale la pena.
La atención del chef explicando cada plato fue extraordinaria. Pueden acomodar algunas peticiones especiales y cambios, pero recomiendo que se tome como se sirve... cada plato fue pensado de una manera muy especial y se nota.

The quality of the food was great but many of the dish so were chicken parts including the neck and butt so even though it was a great experience which I highly recommend, keep in mind that ingredients are quite simple.
