Best Cheap Izakaya Chains In Tokyo You Should Know About


Izakayas are Japanese-style bars where you typically order lots of foods to share with others. Here are some reliably good and cheap chains in Tokyo you can't go wrong with!

Feel free to follow favy!

Tori Kizoku 鳥貴族

Torikizoku is such a good choice for cheap and delicious yakitori (skewered chicken). Almost everything on the menu is just ¥300, including the drinks. Here's a secret: if you order a cabbage plate, you can get unlimited refills for free! The wooden interior and warm lighting on top of the good food makes this one of the most enjoyable izakaya chains there is.

Isomaru Suisan 磯丸水産

Isomaru Suisan specializes in fresh seafood. You can order sushi and sashimi, but what I recommend you to do here is go all out with the "hamayaki". Hamayaki is a type of Japanese cuisine where you cook the seafood on a grill at your table. It's really fun to do! Slowly grilling by yourself seafood a couple of items at a time while you chat with your friends while drinking is pretty much the definition of a great izakaya experience.

Uokin 魚金

Uokin is a Tokyo-specific izakaya chain that is known for having really outstanding sashimi and sushi. You'll absolutely love this place if you have an appreciation for fresh "neta" (toppings used for sushi).

Hakata Mangetsu 博多満月

Hakata Mangetsu is known for its Sapporo beer at ¥199 and its irresistible Kyushu (southernmost major island of Japan) cuisine. Try the motsu nabe (miso hot pot with offal and lots of vegetables) and the yakitori, which are two regional Kyushu specialties.

Tsukada Nojo 塚田農場

This izakaya is highly regarded for the quality of the ingredients it uses, most of which are delivered directly from the farm. The chicken dishes here are particularly outstanding. The meat is so fresh that you can even try a rare Japanese delicacy: the chicken sashimi.

Hanbey 薄利多売半兵ヱ

Hanbey has such an awesome atmosphere because of its Showa retro-themed decor! On top of that, the food is really cheap and pretty good too. You should try their "kushi-age", which are deep-fried skewers of meat or vegetables that you dip in a sweetish soy-based sauce.
