We recommend you to make reservation here in advance especially before 8PM.  That's how popular this restaurant is in Shinjuku no matter how outdated it looks from outside.  When you order, order "Sashimi" which is a raw flesh of chicken.  Never had raw chickens before?  Well, it has to be super fresh to serve customers such food and those chicken must be raised in the farm with special handlings.  The taste of the chicken sashimi is just superb though.  The recommendations for Yakitori are the "tsukune", "tebasaki" the chicken wing, and the "liver".  Fresh chicken and vegetables boiled in special soup and served with dipping ponzu called "Mizutaki" is also very popular in Torigen.  It won't let you down.
