Reviews for Ippuku


It's easy to miss this unmarked Izakaya tastefully tucked away on Center Street, overshadowed by Ben & Jerry's. The moment you step inside, it's like being transported to another culture. I highly recommend making reservations as they hardly ever have room to accommodate walk-ins. For larger parties, you'll more than likely get the zashiki style seating, which also has the low table with a sunken floor for your legs. Take off your shoes and relax your feet! They have some of the best chicken karaage and chicken ramen. For dessert, it's definitely worth trying all of their soft serve flavors!

I'm a fan of the crispy chicken

Incredibly authentic Izakaya with marvelous decor. Impressive Sake and Shoju choices. Bacon wrapped mochi leads the robata line up which is vast and mostly delicious. Call ahead for reservations!
