Amazing Omakase dinner at outdoor seating in summer!
In summer, cold Beer and hot Yakitori go well together.
Overall this is a outdoor dining so you cannot expect more. But the value of the omakase set is not quite there and the service is very slow. Yakitori is a bit cold once it arrives at your desk.
Expensive for what it is
Torishin's Yakitori is best in NYC.
Come back soon.
In my opinion,
the taste and service are not good.
For any occasion, Torishin is always a great choice.
My go to NYC spot, I have never been disappointed.
Chef Bikram is great.
A true taste of Japan in midtown. Authentic yakitori with impeccable service.
Theres a few things in the menu (the best things) that you CANT order them if you don't do a prefix package.
And the prefix package, all the table has to order it.... if not, they don't let you.
That was wired. But other that that. Everything they did let us order was amazing.
Very disappointed that meat was not available . We were limited to mostly chicken
While a little pricey, the food was impeccable and the experience was enjoyable. The menu was a little complicated (tasting menu vs. a la carte), but it honestly did make a difference which option we chose everything we tasted was fabulous.
Always a pleasure having top notch yakitori here. One of my favorite places in NYC.
Always a treat to eat at Tori Shin. The one negative was that the server forgot to pack us our rice portion. The meal was too filling to finish. But overall a pleasant dining experience.
Amazing traditional Japanese dinner with great staff
Memorable experience. I still remember first skewer I got a chicken thigh with Tate and hands up... So juicy and smoky flavor. Will definitely go back!
It was delicious to eat warm Oden in cold winter.
Truly a wonderful dining experience. The servers were incredibly helpful with suggestions, details on varying Yakitori options, etc. We will be back... THANKS
My wife and I have come to Torishin for the last 2 years for my birthday and this week we came for the 3rd year, and have to say I’m a bit disappointed. The food was excellent, but my wife had called ahead and showed up early to request a happy birthday song, and cake, but it never showed up....
Absolutely loved our experience, we had the set meal on a Thursday evening (Along with a lovely bottle of cold saki) and it was fantastic in every sense. I will book this again soon, a rare treat in Manhattan to find this authentic Japanese treasure in midtown. ⛩ I was referred by a friend who is a gourmand and will do the same to friends and family who “get it” ♥️
Too many staff that led being overly crowded and hectic. No one assigned waitstaff that you could connect with for consistent service.
Oden Omakase include yakitori is best foods at winter
Fantastic meal for people who seek out a great art-style of cooking
Charcoal flavor skewers and service and cost performance are excellent!
I ordered the omakase thought it would be good value first try at the restaurant. However, the value is not there. Appetitizers were nicely lay out but no gourmet feel. All yakitori were chef selection but limited choices. I ended up getting all different part of chicken. The food is good but absolutely low value for what you get. There are many more restaurants offer better value omakase or tasting menu. The service is very attentive and food is cooked very well. But, that it.
Wonderfully gracious and friendly service. Brought back memories of living in Japan. Fantastic food
It was a lovely experience. Really warm service. I definitely will go back to Torishin!
Food was not as good considering the price. Everything was quite salty.
Best yakitori in town and amazing services. The server was so nice and patient. We loved the food so much. I will definitely go back
Amazing thank you very much for this dinner it was delicious
First time seating in mezzanine area. Its more quiet and cozy compared to main or bar area. Ms Nozomi was very well taking care all the details to serve customers including us. She was very proper and excellent service.
Deserving of every Michelin star it’s received every year.
Not a typical dinner here, as my girlfriend announced when she arrived that she wasn't feeling well. Tried to make it through dinner but didn't improve and let the staff know. The chef and staff did a great job packing her food to go and accelerated my omakase without having it feel rushed. I enjoyed my meal -- the food is always great -- and she enjoyed it the next day when she was feeling better! Really appreciated the extra effort from the team to deal with a challenging situation. We'll be back again; this is a longtime favorite of ours.
This place earns its star. Always amazing.
Staffs were friendly and nice, all skewers were taste great.
Yakitori Tori Shin has incredible, authentic food. The service was incredible everyone was so kind and helpful. We will definitely be eating there again!
Excellent food and great conversation with the chefs through the meal. I’d love to visit again soon.
For a restaurant that had a Michelin star and is still recommended by the Michelin guide for New York, I found that the food here was mediocre and did not provide an exceptional experience to me. It was simple, under-seasoned for most of the plates, and definitely didn’t “wow” me. I expected far better in terms of flavour and uniqueness. For the majority of the time I was there, I kept thinking that I could have went to any other restaurant that served skewers and they probably would have tasted better. Definitely underwhelming.
The service on the other hand was excellent. The servers explained how the menu worked, provided us with warm towels before and after the meal to clean our hands, constantly filled up our cups of water every few minutes, and made sure that we always had a clean plate in front of us.
Would I recommend this place to a friend? Probably not. For the prices that the restaurant charged and the quality and taste of the food that I was served, I think your money would be better spent elsewhere.
This place is sublime whether or not you have the special skewers.
Be daring, have them!
A pesar de que la cena no estuvo mal, es muy caro para la calidad que ofrece. Creo que ya ha perdido la estrella Michelín, pero me extraña que haya podido conseguirla, ya que la comida estaba muy lejos de tener el nivel requerido para lo que yo entiendo que debe tener un restaurante con estrella. El servicio muy atento.
