One night, after spending the day out with my friends just getting reacquainted once again, we found a nice place to just chill for dinner. We had a pretty late lunch so when it was time for dinner all of us were just too full to have an actual meal. So we decided to try some Yakitori instead and since we were nearby, Koyaku was our first choice.

It was pretty crowded and busy when we arrived - no surprise since it was a Saturday and also right when it was the dinner rush. However our server was very attentive and polite which really put us in a good mood. The dining style at Koyaku was really pleasant as you have the option of dining casual style or have something more fancy off the menu.

For starters, we were each offered this deep fried shrim head with some Japanese mayo to nibble on. This was complimentary and I am not sure if it changes on the daily, however I do like this little offer before the food you ordered arrives.

What I had ordered that night was several sticks of Yakitori which is grilled foods. First, I got some shishito peppers because it's really good and also quite expensive to buy at Isetan so I order it whenever I see it on the menu. Unfortunately that night they were compeltely out of that so I was left with my other orders only.

Instead I got the grilled sliced steak wrapped enoki mushrooms and squids (tentacles & body separately.) Both of these tasted really good, nicely smoky from the grill and also the teriyaki sauce that it was lathered with.

However my beef slices were more well done than I would have liked. It was dry and hard which was quite a struggle to chew so that wasn't the best of the night. However I liked the squids so much that I ordered another two servings of it after I was done with my first round.

The ambience of the place was borderline casual but also fine dining almost. Imagine a very quirky but calm izakaya, which was what this restaurant reminded me of. If I am around the area then I would most definitely pay a visit again.
