If we say 'yakitori' and you yell Yas Queen then this one's for you. Who knew you could get so much pleasure from a stick of meat? Thigh; wing; liver - eat your heart out (yeah there's also heart with bacon. These guys use the whole chicken). 

Jidori specialises in Yakitori, which literally means grilled chicken, but can actually be any type of skewered food. When this includes banging miso aubergine, shitake mushroom and duck then we ain't complaining. Nothing's better with tasty grilled food than a Margarita in our opinion, so go for their twist on a Tommy's - the Asian-vibing Tomu Margarita that combines tequila, mezcal, agave and yuzu. Boom. 

The interior is the three Cs - Cool, Casual, Contemporary. There's a cute bar tucked in the back, or people watch all those tourists from the alfresco tables (extra points for eccentric theatre-luvvies, this is the West End after all). Apart from getting skewered, hit up the buff snacks. The Katsu curry scotch egg is insane alongside a Yuzu Gin Fizz, and don't get us started on the fried chicken with a bit of sake. Time to stick it to the man.
