Yardbird is an achingly hip place in Sheung Wan area. It is also one of the 50 best restaurants in Asia. As though that really means anything. I don’t usually go for restaurants in the who’s who list but I kinda like Yardbird. I have always wanted to come back to Yardbird after the first time I tried it in 2012. It suits us that this place have a no reservations policy, as we arrived a little before 7 on a Thursday evening. To start off, I had a ginger ale to quench my thirst. T...

No reservations allowed at this hot robatayaki eatery, but rocking up at 9.15pm on a Thursday evening we were hoping there would not be a wait. Peering through the entrance we could see the restaurant was packed, but upon asking for a table for two we were immediately directed to a table downstairs. No wait~! Yardbird specialises in chicken robatayaki where a large part of the chicken is dissected and grilled for customer's enjoyment. Besides from skewered chicken, they also offer a ...

Yardbird is a restaurant that has exceeded my expectations on every front. Similar to 22 Ships, there is a no reservations, no service charge policy so we had to get here at 6pm to avoid waiting in line. My friend was already here at 5:50pm and a line had started to form. I was just getting off the mtr at 6pm and had to rush to the restaurant as they wouldn't seat my friend without all of the party present. Luckily there were still seats by the time I got there and we chose to si...

It's safe to say that Matt Abergel, the owner-chef of Yardbird, knows something about Japanese cooking. After all, here's a guy who has worked at the 3-star Michelin Japanese restaurant Masa in New York for an extensive period of time and was later the head chef of Zuma Hong Kong. But Chef Abergel's latest project, Yardbird, was a little different this time. Instead of sushi and oden, this place primarily serves Japanese style skewers covering every part of a c...

Yardbird. Backed with Chef Matt Abergel and Zuma's fame. Ranked no. 46 of the Asia's 50 Best Restaurants 2013. Famous for its awesome atmosphere, drinks range and (of course) foodlollol; infamous for its no reservation policy (we showed up before 6pm on a Saturday and was shocked to see that there was already a queue outside. shocked The restaurant was completely filled by 6:05pm and people were standing around the bar area enjoying good drinks).  chopstick ...

Dining at Yardbird can sometimes be frustrating, because it is hard to get a table. Weekday is probably a better time to try Yardbird as it is definitely less crowded. So does Yardbird really live up to the hype? Actually it depends what you are looking for - Food, Drink or Vibe. Food wise, there were several dishes that impressed me. Drink wise, they have an extended drinks list and I love their whisky collection. If you are coming in a party of two, Yardbird is not in ro...

Yardbird is located along Bridges Street (an extension from Staunton from the main strip in Soho.  We made the mistake of getting out at Sheung Wan (looking at the proximity from the map) and having to climb up the aptly named Ladder Street of never ending small staircases to work up an appetite. It would be probably better to take Central escalator up to the Soho level and walk across. The small two level restaurant was already bustling with people at 7pm. And items...

My best friend and I decided to check this place out since everyone's been raving about it. When we got there it was packed, bustling, with music and a hip young crowd. ( I felt like I was back in the Soho in London) The waitors that worked there were surprisingly all foreign which is an extremely rare sight in Hong Kong I must add. What struck me most about YardBird was the service. It was friendly, down to earth and helpful, not the slightest bit overbearing which we very...

Yardbird has grown on me since my first visit. When it first opened, I did not know what the hype was all about. I am not a big fan of yakitori. However, the food here is good. As I have said many times, the food at a restaurant is what defines a restaurant. At Yardbird, they do all the other little things pretty well too. This makes for a great success and fantastic choice for a casual bite and drink on any given evening in Sheung Wan/Central Mid-levels. I suggest that one is ...

The nice waiter told us he will take care of it and he took the item out from our bill ...,Much appreciated !! Pricey yes.....has nice music (but too loud) good food , nice friend...
