Tokyo's best yakitori/chicken restaurants?

MsJK | Dec 20, 2009 11:53 PM

Hello Japanese Chowhounders,

I would love to hear your opinions on Tokyo's best yakitori etc. A quick search of the boards revealed numerous mentions of Fuku, but how does that compare to other places such as Birdland?

Context: I have some friends visiting mid-late Feb who are poultry/game providores at Melbourne's Vic Market. They deal in high-end product so would like to take them somewhere the same. The restaurant doesn't have to be fancy, as long as the food is great. They are only in Tokyo for a week or so, and I suspect that they may only eat yakitori once, at the most twice while they are here.

I went to Kushibeh a while back (thanks Robb S./bento.com) and liked it. Have also been to an unnamed restaurant in Roppongi (not on bento.com) that prepared amazing vegetables to accompany the chicken.

Other points: Can't say that I am a fan of Toriyoshi... and a Japanese friend mentioned Yebisu in Nishi-Ogi as that's where said friends will be staying.

Thanks in advance for any comments!

Ms J.
