We had a fantastic experience at Jidori. The food was very tasty and original, and the service excellent. Small little gem. Will certainly repeat when back in London.

Lovely meal and friendly staff. It felt like the dishes on the Omakase menu just kept on coming.

The food was really lovely. A couple of niggles were sorted out seamlessly which was positive. The beef tataki we initially received was cold and dry. This was replace with another plate that was a little warmer and was dressed with some dressing (sesame oil and something?). The first plate must have been one left forgotten. Food is nice. I would only suggest serving the food hotter. it was a little too cold for my liking (for dishes such as the robatta). I like cold food to be cold and hot food to be served hot. Luke warm/cold takes away from the flavour and can alter food's texture.

Lovely! Finally some proper (and surprisingly cute) yakitori in London. Keep up the good work!

Went for half price soft launch, the service was excellent. Very tasty food as well. The restaurant structure was a little weird over a few levels and somewhat cramped, but overall great meal and would recommend!

Lovely food, particularly liked the sashimi and both liver and heart yakitoris. Nice friendly staff - worth a visit for sure.. Seating a bit cramped Very limited wine choice - one white, one red and one rose only. White wine too sweet for our taste,

Good food. Cocktails could’ve been stronger and mixed better (has the spritz) Some more condiments on table would’ve good, maybe some shichimi chilli All yakitoris really good, would be good if the sando was more shareable

This is my new happy place. Flavoursome, thoughtful food served by passionate people who care. An oasis of Japanese joy in the heart of London.

Having read great reviews I was a little disappointed that the atmosphere was rather non Japanese. The food was a mix of Japanese with a twist. The Katsu egg was wonderful as were the Taukune and the pickles. The Ginger ice cream was excellent. The other ones I tried were somewhat bland but pleasant. Service was great though.

Love the food especially the chicken wings. Wasn't much mushroom in the tempura, but was still tasty nevertheless. Our waitress was fantastic, very efficient and always had a smile on her face. My second time there, and loved it.
