Bird's Nest Yakitori

Everton Plaza

Bird's Nest Yakitori is a lively slice of Japan located on the corner of Everton Plaza's dining precinct Park Lane.

Customers can take a seat outside on the paved terrace, where there are two separate dining sections, on the bar style seats in front of the kitchen or inside next to the bar and enjoy the warm hospitality and delicious food.

Whist yakitori (Japanese grilled skewers) are the house specialty (and highly recommended) there's plenty of other dishes on the eclectic menu.
