Summary

“Yakitori heaven” (“everything is so yummy”) is to be found at this minimalist duo, specialising in Japanese skewers, which opened in Covent Garden in 2018 after a successful first venture in Dalston. The trade-off is “very simple Muji/utilitarian” decor “but who cares when the food’s this nice”. (Versatile Aussie chef Brett Redman is behind it, in partnership with Natalie Lee-Joe). It also has a karaoke room.

Summary

Well-reputed (slightly hyped) Dalston yakitori café (run by Natalie Lee-Joe & Brett Redman) which wins solid (if not spectacular) ratings for its Japanese small plates. They must be doing something right, as they opened a 50-cover Covent Garden sibling in February 2018, praised in early reports for its “good food and friendly staff”.
