About Chef Terry

The father of two children and husband to my beautiful wife, my passion for food began as a child watching my parents run a successful restaurant. 18 years later, I’ve encountered many mentors; however, my parents remain my number one inspiration.

Even as a child, I realized that good food and great service has the power to make people happy, and that is my vision for ke Charcoal. I want to share my passion and my unique take on Japanese cuisine, and use it to entertain our eclectic group of customers.

For first-timers to ke Charcoal, I recommend our Yakitori special. With the smoke from our charcoal grill and the succulent oils that drip onto the meat, it’ll feel like you’re in the heart of Shinjuku.

Thank you for visiting ke Charcoal, and we hope to see you again.

  • Our new favourite place...great sushi and great barbecued skewers. They have evening specials so we've headed back to try out their stone barbecue as well as take advantage of their excellent sake selection. Lots of fun to sit at the bar and watch the chefs in action
  • WHOA. Yum. Really great fusion sushi! We shared the yellowtail and ahi tuna carpaccio, wild salmon oshi sushi, spicy tuna oshi sushi, and a spicy crunch roll. The spicy oshi sushi was so fresh because of the jalapeño peppers on top, a very lovely way to have raw fish! Will come back again. 🙂

  • Unique atmosphere, great food. Good price for the quality as well. Would definitely come back again! Order the oshi rolls!
