As its name denotes, this excellent restaurant specializes mostly in Yakitori: those Japanese Shishkababs / Satay that come in a variety of tastes and styles (mostly chicken based).
Located at the Centrepoint shopping mall, right in the middle of Orchard Road, it boasts a bright and airy décor that resembles a stylish diner rather than a Japanese restaurant... with mostly light-colored fittings and simple, clean lines... ambience is fairly pleasant and easygoing and the service is good.
The menu is pretty diversified, with a decent choice of Yakitori (chicken, duck, beef, pork, seafood and what not...) and some other "culinary surprises"... from Tako Kimchi and Sashimi salad to Dried baby sardine...
Each of the tables is fitted with its own built-in grill, which means you can either grill your Yakitori by yourself or let the chef do it for you... They use Binchō-tan for grilling, a Japanese white charcoal that is traditionally used for preparing Yakitori, because of its capability to burn at extremely high temperature for a long time (this way, the Yakitori is being prepared quickly and the meat's flavor and succulence are sealed...)
Prices are quite reasonable for this quality. Of course, the types of meat you'll order will determine what your bill will look like
Open daily for lunch and dinner
