I know they are all different style/level of restaurant, but wanted to get some recent and/or comparative opinions. From what I can gather:
Yuzuki is more refined and a higher price point, not properly an izakaya. It's furthest from our prior engagement.
Namu Gaji I have been to several times. To me this is like a fancy izakaya but the food is more Korean than Japanese. I like it and would go again.
It sounds like Roku is most like a proper izakaya, less refined and cheaper than Yuzuki, but the last mention on the board I could find was not too positive.
Goku may be the cheapest, or similar to Roku in price, but it's not clear to me what the menu is like. Also they don't take reservations, which is not ideal for us.
The latter two restaurants are relatively close to our starting point.
Anybody have any opinions? Thanks.
