Bincho Yakitori, London

Pin It!
Where the magic happens!
Bincho Yakitori is a gem of a place right smacked into middle of Soho, London. Casual japanese dining at its finest, it's the perfect place to go for a supper after catching a performance in the West End or any other time when you feel like having well cooked charcoal grilled yakitori (japanese skewers). Every dish we had were fresh, tasty, juicy and succulent. Service was quick and friendly so we'll definitely be back soon!

Minced Chicken Balls and Duck breast
Beef Ribs and Unagi (Eel)
Chicken Oysters
King Oyster Mushrooms
Chicken and Mushroom Fried Rice
Japanese Aubergine with Sweet Miso
Soymilk Donuts - Quite a dense one

  1. Everything looks gorgeous and there are even my favourite eringi! I wish I could go there tonight... It's so funny because in French chicken oysters are called "sot-l'y-laisse" which means "a fool leaves them" ;-) (many people don't know they are succulent and tend to leave them when the chicken is baked or grilled whole)

  2. Thanks for sharing this! I want to go and try out!

  3. lina: go have some yakitori soon!
    Sissi: I just learnt 2 new things just from your comment!!!! Didn't know the mushroom where called eringi and chicken oysters being called 'a fool leaves them!! That's really quite funny! Thanks for sharing!
    Leemei: yes, check it out soon and hope you like it! there's an udon place nearby that i have yet to try.

  4. @Sylvia,

  6. We love yakitori and we make that at home. Got to remember to check this place out if we visit London next time.

  7. quay po: am sure you'll enjoy it too! :)

  8. One of my husband's favorite food is Yakitori and he can go to Yakitori restaurant every day if he can! I always crave for carb while everyone just eat skewers and drinks, so I like this place - there's fried rice! ;-)
