We only had 2 days in Tokyo and had booked this place 6 months ahead of time as we were eagerly looking forward to celebrating a milestone birthday at this Michelin-start restaurant. Totally unspecial and very ordinary!! We can't understand how the star was earned...More

I generally do not like writing bad reviews about restaurants, but having gone to Birdland Ginza, I feel compelled to point out some of the poor, underwhelming food and service I experienced. The chicken was raw when it was served to us. When we pointed...More

What a wonderful meal! Incredible yakatori. A bit hard to find as it is in the lower level of a building, but well worth it! We had the tasting menu and loved every ringleader douse! Our favorite were the chicken meatballs. Well worth a visit!

Less busy than I anticipated for being so well-reviewed, but nevertheless glad we had reservations. If you are the average American, the food here will definitely push your boundaries (it's defintiely, a nose to tail-type restaurant so may it may not be the best if...More

We loved Birdland. There are only 2 different dinner choices- a medium or large fixed priced meal. We went with the large and were glad we did! The room is small with a u-shaped counter. Everything we has was delicious. It was a 5 star...More

I was really hoping to like this restaurant after seeing it featured on Andrew Zimmern's Delicious Destinations show on Tokyo. The decor is modern, clean and spacious for Tokyo, and the service at the counter was excellent. Unfortunately I didn't like most of the chicken...More

We had reservation at 5pm and they open from 5pm onward. We arrived here early at about 4.40pm and nobody was in the Q. We were the first to enter and seated near the sake fridge, at a corner. We ordered 2 sets of Omakase...More

So let's start off with the fact that I have a life threatening allergy to shellfish. Japan is a problem for me (food wise). I found this restaurant in a guidebook and since they only serve chicken it sounded like just what I needed! It...More

My wife had been mentioning Birdland for a number of years. Not satisfied with local yakitoriya, and seeing reservations were not as hard to get as we thought, we gave it a try. My wife and daughter would probably be more critical but this assessment...More

I have to admit that my expectations were quite high, given that I already had a lot of super tasty yakitori here in Tokyo before. I went there in the hope to get a new benchmark for this Japanese delicacy. Thus, I ordered the larger...More

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular
