Authentic Japanese MIdtown West?

CBCebulski Jun 5, 2011 06:50 AM

My wife and I just moved from UWS to Midtown West near Port Authority. We're looking for an authentic and reasonably priced Japanese place that delivers. Not so much sushi but more Japanese comfort foods, like karage, shogayaki, okyakodon, etc. (Bento Delight was our go to joint on UWS.) We've tried Ajisai and Azuki so far with no luck; the food is not the real deal, their recipes more fusion-ized. Love Go Go Curry, but can only do curry so often. Saw Washoku changed to Ronin but they don't deliver yet. Hagi doesn't deliver. Any help out there getting a taste of home in the heart of NYC?

      Yakitori Totto has Karage, Oyakodon, and some great other japanese comfort foods, like chicken knee bone yakitori. It is a great go-to restaurant. Only downside is it's small and the wait can be bad at dinner time.
