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.
We've been to Jidori several times and are always impressed with the food and service
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.
I am a repeat visitor and always enjoy it here. Service could be a little more attentive but staff are friendly and welcoming.
Lovely atmosphere, delicious food, good veggie options.
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.
Gorgeous food and accommodating for vegans!
An interesting adventure into Japanese cooking and Dalston!
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.
Great tasting food!
We brought two friends who totally enjoyed every aspect of the Wonderful Welcoming, Great food and Fabulous service.
Scotch egg was sensational
we had an amazing time, food was delicious, staff was friendly and the price is right for what you get. Would definitely recommend
Delicious food, great service and atmosphere :)
Impeccable food. Service was fantastic. Amazing mix of meat and vegan options. Will definitely visit again.
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!
Proper authentic yakitori with a great sake selection
Such a good meal, best food we be had in a while
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!
Service was very friendly and helpful. The food great, we liked everything (and we did have a lot) - would definitely come back.
Food is delicious and fresh. I’ve wanted to visit earlier in the week but disappointed you are not open.
Great food. Highly recommend!
Nice food, small portions, average price
