About BON Japanese Yakitori Bar 梵日本焼鳥
There are plenty of Japanese yakitori joints in Hong Kong, but only a few real specialists worth the time of the city’s many deeply-invested foodies. BON Japanese Yakitori is one place that demands a reservation, specialising as it does in Kyushu-style barbecue at its headquarters along Tsim Sha Tsui’s Hau Fook Street, a site that boasts incredible views of the harbour. With an interior accented by black marble and mood-lighting – allowing the prospect over the water to remain in play – BON Japanese Yakitori has the appearance of a fine dining establishment, but in fact is one of the better value for money yakitori bars in the city.

Depending on your proclivities, Japanese yakitori means either drinks or grilled skewers first and foremost. Let’s presume that you’re a Hong Kong gastronome after some esoteric spirits. BON Japanese Yakitori is well-stocked with a range of traditional and contemporary tipples, with a list pushing wine and beer to one side – though these remain available in abundance – in favour of premium shochu, sake, and umeshu. The sake selection is impressive, and carefully annotated according to the prefecture of origin and grade (junmai, junmai ginjo etc.). It’s one of the most considered lists in Tsim Sha Tsui’s crowded yakitori scene, providing ample evidence that BON Japanese Yakitori is passionate about what it offers.
BON Japanese Yakitori is careful to emphasise the authentic nature of what boils down, in essence, to a Japanese celebration of barbecue and booze. Bringing a specific Kyushu influence to bear up on the 22nd floor of the H8 building along Hau Fook Street, you can grab some of the most sublime charcoal-grilled skewers in Tsim Sha Tsui, or perhaps in Hong Kong. As with the drinks list, every morsel on the menu is carefully annotated with the origin of the ingredients used. This way you can order chicken breast from Kagoshima with special citrus pepper, a special Kyushu-style minced chicken stick from Miyazaki prefecture, chicken hearts from Hyogo, or Wagyu beef sirloin from Iwate. A special note for death-defying foodies: BON Japanese Yakitori have the expertise to plate up grilled dried fugu with preserved Mirin sauce!

Best yakitori restaurant in TST!!! Freshest ingredients from Japan, and the taste was excellent. It was a good fun evening with friends. Will be back again!!!!
Good food and service! Will come again.
The restaurant is on the 22/F, giving lots of privacy and we were impressed by the stylish classy interior. It's not big and all seats are at the counter, so you can be really intimate with your friend/date. The staff are very polite yet friendly, all the food were delicious. I highly recommend the sake set, which is reasonably priced yet the quality of sake is out of expectations. I'd definitely revisit!
With Japanese chefs grilling and most ingredients sourced from Japan, everything was tasty. The only problem is there are so many items on the menu and it is impossible to try all. An extensive Japanese wine list. Great views but I don't know why no one was seated at the counter seats facing the sea.
all the food were very nice but you must try egg skewer and the chicken soup! I didn't try rice ball as I was already full but this one also looked nice. The staff were friendly and helpful!
Very good yakitori and an extensive sake list. Try the pork and onsen egg grilled combo and use another skewer of chicken to dip into the egg. Mmmm.
