“Yardbird is the chicken's knees”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

A cool eatery tucked away in Central Hong Kong. This is a concept restaurant - serving every possible edible morcel you can take from a chicken. And put it all on skewers. We tried the liver, breast leg and plumped for the more unusual knee. Despite the waitress' recommendation (her favourite joint, apparently) it wasn't to our liking. The KFC Cauliflower is good too washed down with Japanese beers. There is no service charge, so the staff are very helpful and add to the young and happening atmosphere in Yardbird. Well worth a visit.

“A must while in HK but get there early”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

Get there before 7pm and you should be fine but any time after, go at your own risk. No reservations! The food is excellent. I recommend the KFC Cauliflower, the fried chicken, and some skewers. You can't go wrong here and make sure to say hello to the chef, Matt!

“Over priced, and overbearing .”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

The staff did not let you finish before whipping plates away.It felt like they were doing us a favor letting us in.The portions were inadequate and overpriced as were the drinks,music very loud could not hold a conversation.We left after starters and drinks .

“Young and busy place - a different experience”
Reviewed September 14, 2012 via mobile

Yakitori foods with refreshing drinks in a young atmosphere! Service is good. Make reservation because it gets packed very quick and you will need to line up. 2 floors for your choice. The fried coliflower is an option to try if you had never tried.

“Excellent in all aspects”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

Small restaurant located in the new trendy area of Hong Kong
Staff is really efficient and cares about people
We got there at 6:30pm to make sure we would get a seat (no reservation possible)
Food was simply outstanding and original, the best Yakitori in town by far
The only problem is the noise level, but this is HK...
