Reviews for Kiraku

Salt and pepper crab was easily the best I have ever had!. Loved the texture and flavor of the tempura corn as well. Get a reservation. $40 pp requirement but it is totally worth it and you'll reach that I'm sure. Very good yakitori style restaurant.

Get reservations! This place just started doing Yelp Waitlist, which is nice, but they do get a long line since it's a small restaurant. My boyfriend and I opted in for a reservation at 5:30pm on a Saturday since the only had 9pm as a second choice. We were first to get seated right when they opened the restaurant, so we picked our own seats. Sadly, our table was unstable since it was slightly on a slant and tilt-y - however, it didn't ruin our meal. The waitress was full review

Found a new hidden gem! Everything ordered was delicious for a decent price. Not too expensive. Only con is they don't have much space if you come with a baby stroller. Came with a party of 4 plus a baby in stroller. There was no space for the stroller except the side of the table, which is the walkway for other guests. Also, they charge for the use of cards. Thumbs down. Other than that, food was awesome and service was very friendly.
