Award Winning Japanese-Style Fried Chicken
[updated April 2022]

Gaburi Chicken, is a great place to go right near Nishi-Ogikubo Station in Tokyo for Japan’s best fried chicken. Founded in Nagoya, they also have branches in other areas around Tokyo and Japan. For four years in a row, their kara-age (Japanese-style fried chicken) has been awarded the top price at the All-Japan Kara-age competition. An all-you-can-eat cabbage appetizer leads the way to the specialties; the “Kara-age” served with a variety of toppings and the beautifully roasted chicken. For groups of up to 20 people, a “nomikai” (all you can drink) alternative is available where for 3,000 yen per person you will enjoy up to 7 delicious dishes and 90 minutes of unlimited drinks including Gaburi’s own fruit highball whisky. A convenient take-out option is also available.
