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. Book a perch up on the 22nd floor now!
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!

The food are super. Ambience is more than great! How the chef prepare Yakitoki is authentic and delicate. Bon is my definite restaurant for casual Japanese dining.
Best Yakitori restaurant in Tsim Sha Tsui, very authentic Japanese taste with fresh Japanese meats and produce. The staffs were very attentive, and the decor was very modern!
Bon is definetly a hidden gem in the heart is TST. Nice and quiet, but cozy. Delicious and fresh skewers made right in front of you!
Excellent food and view. Is in a crowded and busy area but the restaurant was very posh and stylish, totally different atmosphere from outside street. Highly recommend to the yakitori lovers.
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!
yakitori was generally good, some could be cooked a bit longer to get a better char grilled flavor. Yaki origini was different and smaller than those in usual restaurants, but it's very flavorful. Servers are not quite "genki", and do not know the Japanese names of the food items, which there are around twenty items only, it'd feel more authentic and hospitality if servers can just work a bit harder
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 yakitoris are really delicious and real Japanese taste. You had better try their "Tsukune", cooked very soft with rich taste sauce. Even in Japan, it's difficult to meet the taste.
The food was fantastic, super fresh from Japan, and the service from the staffs was good, I had a great time at BON Japanese Yakitori Bar!
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!!!!
