Our dining experience has been consistently excellent at this long standing establishment. So much so, we make it a point to dine at Birdland during each of our visits to Tokyo. Our must have items have been the chicken thighs and skin. Actually, you cannot...More

This one really confuses me. I go to many fantastic Yakitori restaurants, at least once per week, and this one is well below the quality of a good standard place. Why a Michelin? Have no idea. Try the other much better, and cheaper, places I...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!

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
