About Bincho Yakitori

If you can picture a German beer hall - then replace all the beer with sake and the schnitzels with yakitori - then you can probably imagine Bincho Yakitori, Dominic Ford's new restaurant in London's Oxo Tower. Designed as an izakaya - a Japanese sake hall that serves quick and inexpensive food to accompany the drinks - this restaurant on the South Bank is a buzzy and relaxed place to grab a bite to eat after work. The simple wooden interior and enthralling open kitchen attracts city types and residents. Considering Bincho Yakitori is located in a tower named after a rather ubiquitous beef stock cube, the yakitori and kushiyaki meat is dreamy and delicious, and the venue is perfect for casual first dates and after-work drinks with friends or colleagues.
