Yakitori & Kushikatsu (Japanese style skewers)


Established in 2008.

On a mission to introduce Yakitori and Kushikatsu.. Since tempura and sushi are the most common dishes when people think of Japanese food.. We wanted to share the Izakaya style food and culture in the bay area...


Mieko and shig Komiyama, first generation Owner Chef at Halu just wanted to eat Yakitori -decade ago.. Sadly no established business offered Yakitori nor Izakaya style menu in the Bay Area back then.. They felt that people were missing out on such an amazing food and fabulous culture ...So, they decided to propagate Yakitori in this Bay Area!Now, second generation (Ni Dai me) skewer master continues to protect their Legacy. Mieko K.

The raw squid tapa is amazing. There are about 20 seats in the whole place so not good for groups but a fantastic place to surprise a date. A strange but intriguing combination of Japan meets the Beatles. Hole in the wall that you'll be talking about when you leave.

Great place. Nice atmosphere and good food. Ramen is just not bad, but yakitori is so good. The karaage is yummy and good sidefood for atsukan sake.

The kushi katsu at this place is hard to replicate in the US. The salmon and scallops are especially delicious. The only reason it doesn't get five stars is because the service is hit or miss. I've ordered things that never came out and have had to adjust the bill twice. The atmosphere is pretty cool with all the Beatles music and paraphernalia.
