    A restaurant that offers you an experience of cooking and handling meat at an especially high level. After several visits, I enjoyed each time more than the last time, and of course I will return to them.

    Absolutely incredible experience - from the cuisine, to the ambiance, to learning their process. Above all - the service! We loved our chef, Pun. Amazing conversation and chemistry, flowed so naturally and was the highlight of our experience. Favorite restaurant so far - will be coming back many times and highly recommend.

    Ever since my trip to Japan I’ve been on a hunt for the closest experience to it here in San Francisco. Yakiniku’s staff were just as welcoming and comforting and the meat quality was A1 from beginning to end. Highly recommend for anyone looking for the same experience!
