Best Yakitori place in Hong Kong?

big_apple_ken Aug 2, 2009 10:23 AM

I'm curious if you guys have any good yakitori recommendations. I tried searching for older threads but came up empty. Preferably on HK Island but I'm flexible. Just a great place to get a few beers with your buddies and much on some great yakitori. Thanks!

    There is one call "Arashigawa嵐川", which is a small restaurant in Hong Kong island quite good and in a good price.

      i like ajitomi on 7/F of circle tower but it's not the typical izakaya atmosphere. their food is good but it's a rather serene atmosphere...

        I can't say they're the best, but Magushi on Peel St. and Nantei on Staunton St. are a couple of good "beer with buddies" places...

          Wai wai, 401-403 Lockhart Road. Largest shochu collection in HK too, and it's linked to a karaoke place called Music Box, which is just like being in Tokyo!

            Wa Wai is seconded! Love the feel there.

            Try http://www.openrice.com/restaurant/sr... in Happy Valley. Pretty authentic and good food. There are more authentic ones in Kowloon but this is my fav in HK.

              HKTraveler - which ones in Kowloon do you think are more authentic? Would love to give them a try. Thx.

                suggest either

                鳥燒居 http://www.openrice.com/restaurant/sr...

                if u want something with a nicer atmosphere as opposed to a smoky yakitori joint, then definitely the second one.

                Hmm, we gave 御串燒 in Happy Valley a try on Saturday and it was pretty mediocre--not bad, but again, just mediocre. I was also stunned by how much the menu resembled the one from Nantei (formerly Nanbantei), which coincidentally opened a location across the street. Strange.

                  That's unfortunate. I do like the food there quite a bit. Have you had a chance to try the Kowloon ones?

                    Haven't yet but would love to try them soon. Thanks again for the recommendations.

                    What do you think about Bicho in Causeway Bay?
