About Jidori Covent Garden
Yakitori and Japanese small plates restaurant, with a karaoke room for larger parties.
We aim to bring the atmosphere, fun and food of izakayas to London with carefully sourced ingredients and delicious drinks to accompany.
Yakidori set is a little bit salty, others are perfect
Upstairs in the Covent Garden restaurant has much less of a fun vibe that downstairs, however, great music!
had a great time!
Had a brilliant time in the private karaoke room in Jidori - staff were really helpful and flexible during the booking process, and went above and beyond when we were there. Lovely food and drink too - would book again for a future occassion!
The restaurant was very cold and I had to put my coat over my legs to keep warm.
Service and waitress were fantastic, Momo served 4 tables comfortably in good time with no issues. Very accommodating when changing number of guests.
Bloody lovely evening for my aunt’s birthday, food and drinks especially were DELIGHTFUL! Would definitely book to come again. Thanks so much Lloyd and team!
Distinctly average. Not good, not bad. The food was the 'best' part it was tasty and really liked the vegan menu. But a very forgettable experience and the interior looked very low rent. I think for the casual setting it would make sense to be open lunch times.
We had the chef's choices - a delightful feast and revelatory cooking. A two-hour succession of beautiful dishes, enthusiastically served. A little cramped and basic in furnishing, but the tastes take you away from all that.
Cool night, the Karaoke is a bit small and we were just 6 people so I wouldn't put more than 8 to be comfortable. Other than that good food and good service an nice combo for a night out :o)
A huge shout out to the wonderful lady who served us on the night. She was the only person serving over 3 floors with some help by the chef. Shame on her colleague who didn't show up on the night to work. Even though she was super busy, she was still very polite and courteous and met all our requests. My gluten free friend had a few more gluten free dishes than we expected especially made for her on the night also.
It was a very pleasant dinner experience, with all the smaller bites to share. The lady serving us was lovely, thank you very much. We especially enjoyed the hearts and dumplings.
We had a good evening at Jidori especially there are barely any yakitori restaurants in London. Food was good although i would appreciate a more diverse menu (there are many great options in a traditional Japanese yakitori restaurant!).
Jidori CG completely delighted us for a lovely Thursday catch-up dinner! We tried EVERYTHING on the vegan menu and loved the variety of tastes and texture. The tasty menu features fun fusion influences including an avo ceviche, with each item superbly executed - especially loved the mushroom yakitori and creative broccolini tempura. Certainly a vegan menu that does not seem predictable or samey! With the cheerful decor and dishes plated beautifully, the ambience feels light and nurturing. The seasonal umeshu must be tried too - the peach flavor we tried was delicious! Finally don’t skip dessert: the coconut water gelato is divine. Thanks Nat and Momo for looking after us!
I was really disappointed in this restaurant. The food is not very good at all (we tried at least a third of the dishes), it’s terrible value for money, food arrived at odd times despite not being busy. It was over-priced. Really wouldn’t go back, wouldn’t recommend. There’s much better stuff out there.
Lovely decor, lovely waitress, amaziing food, Great sake. What more can you ask for?
Great food and excellent friendly relaxed service.
Great vegan menu
Everything was great; will be going again.
their omakase is great and the new vegan menu expands so everyone can enjoy the place!
Such a lovely spot in the west end!
Fab! Had a great time.
As good as Dalston but really incredible service from our male server. Loved it
I had the best time! The food was insanely tasty, and really good value for the quality and amount. The staff were all super kind and helpful. Will definitely be back!
