    Editor’s Description

    Last updated: Sep 2, 2019
    Toriyasu is a superb Japanese yakitori restaurant that elevates grilled chicken skewers to a study in detail and perfection. Packed with salarymen and the occasional couple on a date. It's tough to find. Walk north on Huichuan Lu and look for a slatted wood facade with a hobbit-sized entrance. Reservations are strongly suggested.

    It Feels Like Japan - Best Yakitori Place Great Japanese Food, Better Vibes
  • Smartreviews

    • There're many Japanese restaurants in Shanghai, but this one is definitely on top of my list! Good food, great price and nice venue.

      The restaurant itself is pretty interesting. The wooden door entry is tiny and hidden. It's a bit hard to find and here’s a friendly reminder - bend down to get in. The interior design is pretty unique with menu written in Japanese hanging on the wall, and Japanese posters covering the whole celling. Like the wooden door, the interior is filled with wooden elements and make you feel like you are in a cozy restaurant in Japan.

      The cooks are always concentrated and the grilling are just perfect! I’ve been there a million times and to be honest, everything I try is tasty. I usually go with grilled chicken and grilled fish for meat. It’s tasty with just the right amount of seasoning. I discover my love for the tomatoes wrapped in bacon here and you have to try if you never tasted it before! And for side and more “healthy” choice I love their potato salad and regular salad. They also have some main like ramen and fried noodle, but I always go with grilled onigiri. The soy sauce makes it crispy on the outside and it’s just too good to resist. Beer and drinks are available, as well as plum wine and classic Japanese shochu.

      The down side is it’s pretty crowded and people are pretty loud (sometimes drunk) at later hours, which I guess is pretty Japanese Yakitori style too?

    • Right by Zhongshan Park, hiding in plain sight, is one of the best Japanese restaurants in downtown Shanghai. This is Toriyasu (or Niao An in Chinese), focusing on Japanese-style grilling and skewers.  

      Hidden away behind an unmarked wooden front, the atmosphere is definitely at least half of the appeal. Ducking in through the tiny door immediately feels like getting in on a great secret. You’ll be greeted by the smell of burning charcoal, rushed waitresses and the loud chatter of 30 or 40 people having a really good time. It’s a mix of locals, laowais and Japanese parties enjoying what I assume is a taste of home, brought together by ice cold Asahis and sake. Literally brought together - you’ll probably be sharing tables with these strangers and sitting close enough to get to know them a little. Embrace it.

      It’s great for small to large groups looking for an atmospheric, lively dinner. But the intimate, lively and authentic setting make it a good spot for a date too, if you’re both down for something different and don’t mind your neighbors at the table overhearing you conversation.

      Either way, make reservations, especially if you’re going on a Friday or Saturday. Can’t stress that enough. They have a habit of not answering their phone, but keep trying. Expect to spend between RMB 150 and RMB 200 a person including a beer or two, unless you start running up a sake bill.

      So, the food. Some ala carte dishes, particularly the teriyaki chicken, fried kimchi and exemplary Japanese-style fried chicken – I don’t know how they get the skin so crisp yet so light – are worth adding to your order. They help provide bulk. But the grill is where the real action is. Every part of the chicken – from skin to breast to liver – is cooked pretty much to perfection and served on a skewer. The whole grilled squid is killer. The grilled bell peppers are perfectly seasoned.

      It’s the kind of cooking that’s small, shareable and – crucially – the ideal complement to cold Japanese beer. The fact that you get to enjoy it in exactly the right atmosphere, in exactly the kind of surroundings that it feels designed to be eaten in, make it pretty much perfect.
