Feel free to follow favy!

“Toritake Main Location”

A 3-minute walk from Shibuya Station.
It is a yakitori restaurant representing Shibuya and the sign is the smoke which is always coming out of the shop from the yakitori being grilled.

This restaurant is famous for the large amount of yakitori they make every day! The price of one stick is a bit on the expensive side, but still, you can be sufficiently satisfied with the volume. The lunchtime “yakitori bowl” is also recommended, with 3 sticks of splendidly big yakitori included as well!

“Bistro Gokigendori, Shibuya Branch”

A 7-minute walk from Shibuya Station.
A comparatively recent yakitori restaurant, located on the way up Dogenzaka.

The fashionable exterior is alluring.

They use only domestic chicken meat transported on the day! The ultra-rare “white liver” is an especially supreme dish! Even people who don’t like liver can eat it. A must-go restuarant for people that want to eat authentic and fresh yakitori!

“Hagakure”

A 15-minute walk from Shibuya Station.
It is a yakitori restaurant right in between Shibuya and Omotesando Station. It’s a bit hard to find the restaurant but when you do, you won't regret going there!
In any case, this place is famous for its great variety of yakitori. All of the yakitori come in a big portion, and are made with careful work. It’s a yakitori restaurant which has put together a varied menu, from the standard to the exceptional. As it’s an extremely popular restaurant, a reservation is required on the weekend.

“Daraku”

A 5-minute walk from Shibuya Station.
This is a yakitori restaurant right in the middle of Shibuya, located a little bit in the back streets of Dogenzaka. It’s not a large restaurant but is nice and calm with not too many people.
Here you can enjoy a variety of rare yakitori parts which are difficult to find in other places. The meats offered change by the day, so you’ll find out that day’s recommendation when you come to the restaurant.

“Daraku” works completely on a reservation basis, so don’t forget to make one! It's that popular. You can order fantastic courses but they also put some effort into their a la carte service as well, and is a must-visit place for people who want to eat exquisite chicken dishes!

"Morimoto"

Morimoto is located a 3-minute walk from the Hachiko Exit of the Shibuya Station. This is definitely one of the most reputable yakiniku restaurants in the area. It has been in operation since 1948.
You may have to wait in line but the food you'll get is truly outstanding. One of their most famous menu items is the one pictured above, which isn't chicken, but actually, unagi (freshwater eel) grilled yakitori-style. It's uncommon to have it cooked on a skewer like this. With just the right seasoning the result is mind-blowing. Try any other yakitori here and you won't be disappointed.

"Yamaga"

Yamaga is located a 3-minute walk from the Station on its west side. This is also a restaurant with a long history (established in 1947) so you can be sure it's good. Not so many restaurants can pass the 5 years mark in Tokyo.
What's amazing about Yamaga is that it's open 24h every single day of the year! It has a retro Showa kind of atmosphere and you can have 300 yen drinks while you eat pretty good yakitori. It's a big restaurant spread on five floors so it's a good place to meet in larger groups. Most yakitori restaurants are small. This is an overall excellent yakitori restaurant where you get your bang for the yen.

"Sagoemon"

Sagoemon is on the 4th floor of a building. It has a really modern sleek interior which is somewhat unusual for a yakitori place. To be fair, this is more of a general izakaya but is also known for its good yakitori.
You can have all kinds of beautiful and tasty dishes here and the yakitori is no exception. What's surprising is that the prices are totally reasonable for a stylish downtown Shibuya restaurant. The yakitori skewers are just around 100 yen per order so you probably won't have to pay more than 4,000 yen for a great evening with plenty of excellent food and drinks.

Lastly...

Nowadays, yakitori is normally eaten in places like chain izakayas, but it’s difficult to come across really delicious items.
Having said that, when you try to find one yourself, that in itself can be quite difficult…
If you’re in Shibuya and want to eat some high quality yakitori, please use this article as your guide!
