This is one of my favorite restaurants in Hong Kong. The staff is very knowledgeable about both the food and the drinks. It's some of the best service in town outside of the realm of high end restaurants. The food is a modern take on Japanese yakitori, and it is delicious. They've really created some interesting dishes. The corn tempura is a must try. They have a great selection of Japanese whiskies and cocktails. They don't take reservations, so it's best to get to the restaurant early-ish as there tends to be a long line. Highly recommended.

The food was excellent , we left if up to the waiter to order for us which he did superbly. Everything was tasty and delicious. We had a table for four as we arrived early . By the time we left it was packed.

Always busy restaurant. Very very good service from all staff. Ate at bar, really lovely main course. Staff very knowledgeable. I live nearby to the restaurant. The doorway and street outside ate usually filled with the sort of loud, slightly obnoxious crowd that are always talking loudly about vacuous nonsense. If they are not careful they will lose their drinks license. But really great food and service. Worth a visit( no loud chats outside please! )

I wanted to try a new restaurant during my stay in Hong Kong- was googling for "must visit" restaurants in Hong Kong. Yardbird was apparently highly recommended. I must say that that meal at Yardbird was simply awesome! The waitresses were friendly and they certainly know their stuff. We asked for their signature dishes and they were darn tasty! I'd certainly go back again if I ever go HK again. Pity that when we asked if the chef is thinking of opening a branch here in Singapore, the waitress replied that the chef was actually looking for a location but it didn't seem to work out eventually.

It's a great place to have a great meal. The atmosphere is fun and full of hip Hong Kong expats.

The food is fantastic and really tasty!

The only complaint I have is the price. The food is a tad pricy for the amount you get.

Matt and Lindsay are really friendly and make Yardbird the special place it is.
