Best Yakitori Restaurants in Tokyo

Yakitori 焼き鳥 (grilled skewered chicken) is a must-try in terms of Japanese cuisine. Usually served in small restaurants, you order many different types of skewers that you can share with your friends. In a convivial setting, sharing a few laughs with your neighbours, and having a few beers, yakitori is usually a fun experience.

Feel free to follow favy!

Masakichi

Masakichi is located in Meguro, a 5 minute walk from Musashi-Koyama Station on the Meguro line. This place serves excellent yakitori AND ramen. Are you game enough to try the chicken sashimi??
Not only this place said to be one of the best yakitori restaurants in Tokyo, it's affordable for a Michelin-recognised restaurant!

Toriyoshi

Toriyoshi is a chain with several branches across Tokyo. This particular branch is located close to Harajuku and Meijijingu-Mae station. The atmosphere is completely unique and welcoming. You have to try the fried chicken, it's their signature dish.

Toritama

Toritama is located in chic Kagurazaka, around 5 minutes from the station. There's also another location in Shirokane, under an underpass. They have a very diversified menu of skewers and delicious sake. Have you tried the shrimp though?

Birdland

Birdland has a branch in Ginza and in Marunouchi and it is a Michelin-starred restaurant!! They use Ibaraki's famous chicken which is famous for its low fat content. Have you ever tried yakitori paired with wine? It's a change of pace and is quite awesome!
This restaurant is highly popular, so we recommend making a reservation before-hand.
They only have 2 course menus: a ¥6,300 and a ¥8,400 course; it includes liver pâté and 8 skewers of yakitori amongst other things.

FUKU Yakitori

Fuku Yakitori has a few branches across Tokyo. It is a must-try restaurant while you're in Tokyo; the atmosphere is interesting and the food is amazing. You need to try the asparagus, shiitake mushroom! Be sure to make a reservation though!
