Walked in as a party of one, had a wonderful and relaxed meal taking suggestions from the host. Definitely will go back. Been to Tokyo 20+ times and this is one of the best mixes of ambience/quality/price i have found.

Excellent sticks! The AAAAA beef steak is awesome and melting in the mouth. Beef sashimi is great. We ordered Chef's choice 8 mixed sticks all excellent tastes

Jomon is one of my favorite Yakitori place in town. The price is slightly higher than usual Yakitori, but the quality is better, a lot of variety as well. They're also very english friendly place.

Recommend you call to book in advance, it could be very packed. The place is a bit on smaller size as well. Usually I spent 6-8k JPY here.

It is a local joint filled with both locals and foreigners. It serves very authentic grilled skewers of various item. The special of the day are worth trying as they are seasonal items. The spicy soy milk noodles was spectacular, if u like spicy food.

The servers speaks English which is big plus for a restaurant in Japan. The selection of sochu is mind boggling.

The restaurant is not so well ventilated. So do expect to come out smelling like a bbq dish after the meal.

Overall, an inexpensive restaurant with good food and wide selection of alcohol.

One of the worst experience in Tokyo and Japan without any doubt
The place is well located in ropongi, not far from the subway, it looks busy and the first thing you can observe and it shows the level of the place is no Japanese customers at all, only foreigners
The restaurant is quite small, normal in Japan, but is absolutely uncomfortable with small banches on the floor and also full of the smoke from the grill at the entrance where they prepare the yakitoris, all it makes the experience completely ruins
But like a foodie I don't have much problem about the comfort if the food is great
And the food is just bad for Japanese standards, bad quality of the product and also not really well executed , the chefs are teenagers from the high school trying to make some extra money in a part time job, not a professional chefs
At the end of this experience easy to understand why locals are not eating and drinking at jomon
Avoid this tourist trap in ropongi
