While London may crammed with the izakaya (Japanese pubs to normal folk like you and I) clan, there aren't many as humble, bright and brimming with skewer bites like Jidori in Dalston.

The Chef behind The Richmond pub in Hackney and Elliot's Cafe in Borough Market, Brett Redman has opened another East London eatery, this time tapping into Dalston's already thriving oriental food scene.
Jidori encapsulates Japanese culture and cuisine by plating up the traditional Toyko street food favourite of Chicken Yakitori grilled over charcoal. Redman has created a space that revolves around the culinary skill of this oriental speciality with an authentic imported Kama-Asa Shoten grill taking centre stage in the dining area framed by an open kitchen physique.
The 40 seat restaurant serves Japanese cuisine focusing on Yakitori skewers, small plates and rice dishes. Behind the bar, there's a stock of traditional Japanese spirits, craft beers, whiskies and sake for a ultimately Oriental experience from start to finish.
