If you want to experience a little old school Japan with an English menu then give Kushi-Wakamaru a try. The atmosphere is very cozy with neighbors just a few inches away. I'd suggest calling in to make a reservation even a few hours before hand otherwise the wait can easily exceed 1hr. There was a nice mix of Japanese and foreign customers.
Tiny fish on grated daikon will automatically arrive first. Put a little shoyu to taste.

Cut for your Yakitori sticks.
Best to make reservations but if you don't try for 9:30pm... there was a line outside from 8-9:30pm (our reservation was at 8pm with around 10 people waiting outside at the time).
The special's menu only in Japanese. Ask your friend to translate before going~... might miss out on something non-Yakitori related. (Click pic to enlarge).
