About Jidori Dalston

A yakitori restaurant based in the heart of Dalston. In the spirit of traditional izakayas, we place equal importance on food and drink. We offer an omakase menu "chef's choice" for first time diners who want to try yakitori but don't know where to start. We also offer a range of small plates such as katsu curry scotch egg and koji fried chicken for a bit more playfulness.

Our server was friendly and really helpful in describing the dishes to us, service was quick and all the dishes we had were lovely. I was there last night and have already recommended it to three people!

Amazing food, lovely atmosphere and great value for the high quality you get. Staff are v attentive and service is quick - ideal if you are catching a film at the Rio cinema next door.

Not bad, but not great - restaurant was empty at 7pm so not great vibes but not much you can do about that. Food-wise, veg tempura was a bit greasy and pretty chunky pieces, not very delicate. Various chicken part skewers were nicely cooked, not tough, but uninspiring; dressings/seasonings weren’t punchy and were all quite similar, and ingredients weren’t flavourful enough to shine through. Couldn’t taste the grill on them at all. Nicely plated, however. House made kimchi and spinach were solid side dishes. Pacing wasn’t good, too fast, so we ended up with pretty much everything on the table at once before we had finished some dishes, so things got cold and weren’t enjoyed at their peak. Beer was a bit warm. Music was good. Chairs were comfortable, lighting a bit weird and gloomy. Not an expensive restaurant so not a bad deal all in all, but not cheap, hence the sharper criticism.

Our second time at Jidori and the food was just as good. A quiet night at the restaurant, but probably because it was 28th December!! So no complaints for us as it was nice and calm compared to what Christmas is like. 1 dish we ordered was forgotten, but in the end it was ok, because we were stuffed any way! Would recommend, good value for money tasty food and friendly staff.

Always impressed by Jidori! Amazing atmosphere, diligent ownership, attentive service, and of course, delicious yakitori. Any of the omakase are always a great option, but the tebasaki (wings) kinoko (mushrooms) are a must-have. Will be back soon, many times over!

We've been twice now and each time the serving staff have been exceptional - warm, welcoming, helpful, just the right level of being present. The food has been excellent but it is the service that is the indefinable element that always makes the biggest difference. Only shame was we had an early dinner and the happy hour didn't include the drinks that are our favourites!
