Many see Hachibei as the best Yakitori restaurant in Tokyo. It is just one of several branches across Tokyo, but this is the branch Tokyo residents prefer the most, making it the most successful branch of the network.
The high quality of meat is present thanks to the fresh supply and the great bird species from which the yakitori is made of. The cooks offer the diners many surprising types of skewers from the chicken meat, from its various parts.
One of the most recommended dishes here is the grilled tsukune (chicken meatball), which is chicken thighs cooked with ginger, lemon zest and sweet sauce.
Also excellent is the Caesar salad with the mysterious egg sauce and Parmigiano, prepared by the cook on the table, in front of the customers' eyes.
