    Awesome and cozy environment but very loud, a bit difficult to carry a conversation.

    Good service and drink, food is ordinary, strong BBQ smell in the bar. Maybe because I am sensitive with smell.

    After you eat in Japan it’s hard to compare. However, I loath QR code menus, which signifies lazy hospitality values from the business which reduces developing important waitering skills to ensure customers are comfortable, happy and always front of mind in a business. QR codes remove the opportunity to solve minor niggles easily, build rapport and invite tech malfunctions which happened three times. The food was fine but lacked the finesse of simple Japanese cuisine. Note - there were no Japanese people eating here. Pricing - you get what you pay for and it was affordable.

    Always a great time Tokyo Bird. Better value than some of the city's specialty yakitori restaurants, and with better drinks. One of Surry Hills' longest-standing venues for a reason.

    Tokyo Bird never disappoints us. With each visit, the food consistently delivers on flavour, highly recommend the wagyu skewers that are soaked in an amazing sauce, and the service is top-notch. I've lost count of how many times I've been here, and it's always a pleasure. I consider the cocktails the crown jewel of Tokyo Bird, they always have something for everyone, the new Gold Rush cocktail was very enjoyable. I would definitely recommend trying out Tokyo Bird if you’re in Surry Hills.

    Awesome venue and service, food was fantastic but vegans probably not for you. Was slightly expensive after we drained a few cocktails and Sapporo’s but great place with a real Japanese feel to it Avoid the red light ‘hookers are us’ a few doors up, entrance in actually off Belmore st

    The food is always phenomenal but the service was also great! Our waitress went above and beyond to ensure my dietary requirements were catered too, which says volumes about the chefs too! I will always recommend and revisit Tokyo Bird!
