Charcoal grilled Wagyu cuts at Ebisu Yakiniku & Yakitori Chatswood
When they say that the journey to happiness is through the stomach, we whole heartedly agree – after our meal at Chatswood’s new Japanese eatery, we felt at bliss. Located on the pedestrian-busy Victoria Avenue, Ebisu Yakiniku & Yakitori gleams mysteriously with purple neon-lit interiors.
Walking inside, we are impressed with the professionalism of this Wagyu meat haven. Behind a stretched panel where you can sit down and enjoy Friday night drinks, chefs are preparing the menu. With utter concentration, diamond slices of beef are criss-crossed.
A host welcomes you with characteristic Japanese hospitality and brings you either to a table on the ground floor, or upstairs.

Bingsoo is also served here! We’re reminded of delicious desserts popular in the streets of Thailand
A refreshing and exciting dessert offering
The experience of yakiniku dining varies, with some restaurants offering a down-to-earth ambience and others catering more for an upper-market. Ebisu Yakiniku & Yakitori is a mixture of both vibes, serving premium selections of meat, side dishes and comfort Japanese food at prices that won’t break your bank account.
We’re a big fan of the charcoal grill. Flames would lick the surface and sometimes roar upwards to add an extra dimension of flavour to the end product. There is a wide variety of cuts to order depending on your group size and level of hunger. In any case, the rich juiciness of each bite warrants a bowl of rice to balance the taste.
After your meal, be sure to browse the sweeter side of Ebisu’s menu. The bingsoo section offers a tantalising array of fruity and tea flavours, including green tea, watermelon and taro.
Inside a mountain-topped bowl of powdery goodness, the dessert chef adds ingredients like cornflakes and red bean. On the outside, a curl of fairy floss topped with edible flowers makes a worthy addition to your next TikTok post.
