Good izakaya chain specializing chicken at UENO 3153

Toriyoshi (鳥良) is a popular izakaya chain whose specialty is chicken dishes like karaage, Japanese-style fried chicken. One of their branch is located in the basement of UENO3153, a restaurant complex (see previous visit). I haven't been Toriyoshi for a while, but I found the quality has been improved than before. 
Entrance (like Japanese old house)
The color of lighting is changing...
Steamed egg hotchpotch
Japanese stew with beef and Japanese radish
Sashimi platter
Karaage (fried chicken wing)
Chicken ramen
Though each dish costs around JPY500-1,000 (except sashimi platter), the taste was more than average izakaya. Sashimi was fresh and tasty. And their specialty, fried chicken wing was crispy and juicy with hot and sweet soy sauce. The taste can be addictive. Ramen using chicken stock was also impressive. Very mild but delicious soup and thin noodle were matched well. If you can't find suitable izakaya in Tokyo, Toriyoshi is recommendable. Because of the good quality and reasonable price, many people were waiting even at 22pm. My rating is 3.3 out of 5. Gochiso-samadeshita!
