    Had high expectations but was left disappointed. I've had better yakitori in Hong Kong's Yardbird and random street yakitori places around Japan. The yakitori in Bird Land lacked seasoning and some were served still raw on the inside (while I am unsure if this is traditionally done this way, it was not flavorful at any rate). The highlights were surprisingly the grilled cheese and the tomato salad (but see my note below). Also noted some sanitary red flags during our dinner: (1) One of the chefs working on the skewers poked his finger with a skewer at least twice. He seemed to be bleeding, as he squeezed his finger and wiped it with some towels. He proceeded to work on the skewers without washing or wrapping his finger. (2) My companion's salad had a live insect, which we returned (but only after she had a few bites). The staff was apologetic and replaced her salad. Nonetheless, this is unacceptable from a starred restaurant.

    Fantastic restaurant with friendly service. Opted for the full course experience which was great value and appreciated the creative uses of different meat cuts. We sat at the counter and were able to watch the courses being prepared over the BBQ, was an overall great experience!

    Not sure how this has a Michelin star. It was an enjoyable evening but really not up to what the star demands

    Hands-down, the best yakatori we have ever had. Also one of our favorite meals while in Japan. It is great to sit at the bar and watch all the chefs in action. We got the largest meal you could get with multiple side dishes and several skewers. If we ever go back to Tokyo, we will definitely visit again!

    I wish we didn’t have to order a set menu. Some of the choices are…”adventurous”. They did let us exclude a few items, but even so, some of it just wasn’t for me. I’m sure for others it is worth it, but so much of the food in Tokyo was cheap and delicious, that I’m not sure the value is there, even with the Michelin Star.

    Great food and helpful staff. The tasting menu provides an easy way to sample the many yakitori that Bird Land offers.

    Terrific experience. We had a group of 6. We were running late but they held our table. We were greeted by one of the staff and he and his team took care of us from beginning to end. He recommended the cheaper omakase options and our three generational family all enjoyed it immensely. The food was delicious, needless to say! But the awesome, caring service made this a super experience. Please do go and support them.

    This was our third time at Birdland Ginza. Since we discovered it, we go there every time we are in Tokyo. Always love the food. Do not miss the flan (creme caramel) as desert. Probably the best you have ever had.

    When they say they use all the chicken, they use ALL the chicken. We tried various parts that I haven't eaten before but were all cooked to perfection. I had the the 8,000 yen meal and my boyfriend the 10,000. I was still stuffed by the end. Lots of little courses. If you're a picky eater I don't recommend but if you go in with am open mind you'll love it.
