Times Square is generally a disastrous place to eat, but Hagi is a wonderful find! Open late and serving up great Japanese izakaya / yakitori fare... more

It doesn’t worth to try it. 5/12/2009

I saw the reviews were very good so I went there but I was very disappointed. Nothing was special. It doesn’t worth to try it.\r \r Food was okay. The price was cheap but the portion was really small, too. I had to order many foods. When I got the check, I didn’t think it was cheap.\r more

Great underground NYC hangout 3/26/2009

I went last night w/ a friend and had a great time. Entered about 6pm on a Wed night and there were only 4 seats available. We sat at the bar and enjoyed hot sake and quickly (less than 10 mins) got our orders.... Kimchee, pork dumpling, octopus ball, kobe beef skewers, and a large plate of napa cabbage, bean sprouts, pork belly in miso sauce. It was more than enough to leave us full. Great for sharing and the bill was less than $38 including 2 large carafes of sake! Pros: fast service, great, inexpensive food/drinks Cons: very crowded, limited seating more

Highly recommended 8/21/2008

Japanese restaurant ... Midtown location ... middle of tourist area. You're thinking high prices and low quality, right? No way! This place is amazingly good and reasonably priced. I have been living here for years and I had never heard of the place until it was featured on Tony Bourdain's show. Just remember, it's not a sushi bar (they don't even sell sushi). It's noisy, crowded, and you will probably have to wait for a table. It's well worth it. Japanese New Yorkers appear to have been keeping this place to themselves. Pros: Prices. Food. Cons: Line to get in. more

Great food, long line 7/8/2008

I really love the food here. It's always one of my favorite places in the neighborhood. However, sometimes the line just is too long. I guess that is a good sign though? Pros: FOOD Cons: sometimes hard to get a seat more

Good and fairly priced food is overshadowed by lazy service and long waits. 4/14/2008

Arrived at 6:30pm on a Friday and we had to wait approx 1.5 hours. Wow! You put your name and # on a list and they'll call you. But, I suggest that you hang around the area b/c we got a seat early b/c the party that was ahead of us didn't immediately call back.\r Food was good except for the grilled yellowtail collar. That was very bland. Wasabi shumai will clear your sinuses very quickly and painfully (the trick is to not breath through your mouth when eating). Yakitoris are good and are about $1.50 to $2.50 each. The service is a bit lazy; they are slow and inefficient but friendly. There are about five flat screen TVs scattered around so you won't miss the latest yankees game.\r Not sure if I'll be going back since the long wait is not worth it. more

Great Japanese food! 10/19/2007

This is my favorite Japanese place in Midtown. The service is great, the food is authentic, the sake selection is wide, and the prices are reasonable. Try the pork belly with daikon, the grilled yellowtail collar, fried oysters, or the yellowtail sushi. The yakitori is great, too!\r The main problem is that it's too good - and it can be crowded if you show up later than 7:30 - 8:00. Pros: Great food, nice ambience - but a little cramped, great value! Cons: can get crowded so show up early! more

Authentic, no-fuss, fun Japanese among the predictable 10/9/2007

I went here with my cousin because we needed something fun and reasonable in midtown, which is no easy task. I remember seeing a show on the Travel channel where they went here with a camera crew and I wanted to eat there ever since. Tons of variety - I had three kinds of yakitori, two kinds of dumplings, broiled fish, riceballs, the works, and it was so much fun to be able to taste so many things! The sake list is also incredible! I can't wait to go back!!! (Just prepare for a long wait on a busy night, like a Friday...45 minutes but worth it!) Pros: Good AND cheap, great sake, fun place in general and fun waiters Cons: long wait but worth it! more
