“Great yakitori chefs and good price!”

Charcoal fire Kushiyaki Kokekokko Kyoto
Ranked #2,014 of 15,061 Restaurants in Kyoto
Restaurant details
Reviewed 6 April 2018

We are on the first evening of Hong Kong Michelin Tour Meet-up in Kyoto. Looking forward to seeing the cherry blossom in the next few days.

I chose this restaurant for the first dinner because it is conveniently located above the JR Kyoto station on the 10/F accessible via Isetan.

Its a Friday evening. We decided going to this restaurant at last minute so there had been no prior booking....so we had waited for almost one hour before we were seated.

Once we sat down, one of the friendly chefs greeted me with a big smile. When we made the decision about the order, the other chef noted it right away and asked a waitress to help us with the order.

We were seated at the "bar table" which was the most lively part of the whole restaurant. The two chefs fulfilled each order efficiently and it's a pleasure to watch their movement during the dinner.

Must order is "chicken cartilage"! We have order two green salads, one of which is raw cabbage in miso dip. Do explore other dishes if you are going there.

If you choose beef, the price would be more expensive. But if you choose the chicken yakitori, each dish ranges from 300 to 450 yen...such a good price.

Quite a number of Japanese business people are there for social gathering.

We had dinner here. The restaurant is one of many on the 10th floor of the Kyoto station building (west end). It serves barbecue chicken and pork skewers, which were absolutely delicious. It was fairly busy and had a really good atmosphere when we visited. The staff were very friendly and attantive.

I'm a big fan of yakitori and this place was perfect. There's a selection of different meats (beef, pork, chicken) and unusual cuts. Where else can you get all these parts of the chicken ? The staff speak some english, certainly good enough to order. There's also a terrific view of the Kyoto Tower.

On the 10 floor of the Kyoto station right next to the "North Elevator" in the Isetan department store.

I ate here with a large group and found that the food was really good. After placing our orders we had our food on the table within a very short period. We had an assortment of many skewers and all of them were very tasty. The waitress didn't speak the best English and when she was bringing our food she mentioned what it was as best she could. It would have been better if she brought each person what they ordered instead of handing it to the end table and having the food get passed down the table.

After we were done we ended up waiting about 20 minutes before getting the bill with no one checking on the table.

They do have menu's in English as well which was nice.

I used to live near Kyoto Station and have tried many of the restaurants there. This is was one of my favorites in the station. It has an amazing view if you get seated near a window and I have never been disappointed with the food. The thing I ordered most often was some kind of yakitori rice bowl with nori for lunch. I still haven't forgotten how good it was.
