Excellent time was had. We enjoyed the cocktails and scotch and the knowledge of the staff on these products. Highly recommended.

It is a great place but for some reason the service was bad when I went I’d go back because the food was amazing and the drinks but service could be a little faster

Food and cocktails were nice but the food was so outrageously expensive I probably wouldn't come back. Value was definitely lacking. Service was great, couldn't fault that.

Tokyo Bird is a hidden gem, tucked away in Belmore Lane. The food was great, the cocktails were not your stock standard and the service was efficient and friendly. We'll definitely visit again.

Good service and great food! Sometimes hard to hear each other talk and the ventilation system needs to be improved, a little smoky from the kitchen / warm from the lack of air circulation. Apart from that would go back!

Absolutely Love this place. Food was so amazing the first time we went so we made an effort to go again before we left Sydney and they did not disappoint.
