The food was delicious. Will definitely be back to try the other things on the menu. Service was a little chaotic but worked out in the end!

Good environment, good service and creative dishes. But too expensive.. at least $50/pp to be barely full. That’s almost fine dining price but food is not up to that level. Also the food was cooked super slow, we spent over 1.5 hours here, 90% of time was waiting for food, which was a bit disappointing

I love my Japanese food and this place is a winner! All dishes were amazing and the truffle oil edamame dish was such a great starter.

Loved our evening in this little gem! Really funky vibe, impeccable service and special food! We were a party of 10 celebrating a birthday and had lots of fun sharing the incredible skewers and other dishes and going through the great drink list! Definitely a must try for a unique evening! Thank you!

The staff was so lovely. The food and having being able to sit next to the kitchen seeing the chefs prepare the food was such an amazing experience. But the staffs attention to us was amazing.

Had a great night and food selection was excellent. I felt the value was a bit questionable with some dishes commanding quite alot considering a small portion on the stick.
Enjoyed the sake tasting

We loved the experience and some of the skewers is just other worldly. Highly recommend the quail eggs, LPBs, chicken tail and their umeshu and hakata mules.

Food is great but slow , maybe I was in peak time at 6.15pm and hungry? Our first order came after 45mins waiting. Poor service on floor staffs. We have to looking for floor staff all the time., and also table next to me she also had to raise her hand up when need for service.

A very authentic Kushiyaki restaurant. This is real Japanese cuisine, not an imitator. Excellent food to pair with a drinking session.

Will definitely return to this joint. Very good food and great ambiance.
You would think its a Yakitori and the place will smell like bbq, but it didn't.

I really enjoy the feel of this restaurant-warm and the service is passionate. Full wine menu with special Japanese whisky list and umeshu list. High recommend the Choya apricot drink- light sweet and fresh just match with pork belly skewers. Love the gyoza&ramen in TONKOTSU soup-super rich and thicker- remarkable memory

The experience of dining at Goryon San reminded us of our trip to Japan two years ago. The theatre of eating at the countertop close to where the chefs were grilling meat was fantastic. It took a while before our food came to the table (roughly 25 minutes after ordering) but we didn’t mind. The staff were all very attentive and the food was delicious.
