This April, Toritama opened its second branch in China, the first in Chinese mainland, in No. 75 Tianhe East Road, Tianhe District, Guangzhou. Toritama chooses Guangzhou, the capital city of Guangdong province, because people in Guangdong love eating chicken most in China and the province is home to all kinds of chicken.
The head chef Matsuzawa has worked for Tokyo Toritama and its branch for over five years, and been in the catering business for over 15 years. Three months before the opening, Matsuzawa has come to Guangzhou to pick ingredients, learn language, train workers and get used to life in the city along with his wife.
In Toritama, you can savor any part of a grilled chicken. If you can’t decide what to eat, order the omakase set, and your chef will choose the best for you.

The sauce made by Tokyo Toritama and the bamboo sticks are imported directly from Japan. This is for you having the best dining experience in the restaurant.
Since only electrical barbecue grills are used in the restaurant, there won’t be smoke during barbecuing. Therefore, you can enjoy the delicious foods right in front of the gridiron at the bar counter without worrying being smoked.
Apart from grilled chicken, chicken soup and soy sauce ice cream are must-have foods.
