Second time back in a week. Best japanese food I ever had. Good drinks selection, service was quick and efficient. Will be back.
Excellent food would deffinately come back there could not fault it at all
Delicious authentic food, really fast service for food - we were seated and had our food within half an hour! Only let down was that our drinks were forgotten about and didn’t come until after food, but otherwise fantastic.
Great choice of food. I had a mixture of old favourites and new. I will be back. Try the spider roll, yummy
Food was superb as always and good ambience. Can’t fault it
Excellent and kind staff , great food quality , loved that main courses
Amazingly good food presented beautifully. Service was unobtrusive but attentive. This restaurant obviously takes great pride in the food that they serve, and it shows in the quality of the dishes.
Excellent as always! Can't decide which of the dishes is our favourite so we ordered loads. Fresh, tasty, and very friendly service.
It's a little pricy but you're paying for fantastic sushi so if you're treating yourself then it's perfect.
We had a fantastic time! Excellent food and service.
Food is excellent and pretty good value. Nice ambience in the restaurant which is clean. Free first beer on Monday too which was a bonus!
Really tasty food. Cooked fresh with excellent flavours.
We had a wonderful meal at Yakitori. The food is excellent, very fresh, superbly presented and really tasty. We will be going back and will recommend the restaurant to friends and family. The service was great also. We weren’t sure about what to chose and were given lots of help. 10 out of 10
One of the best restaurants in Cardiff. High quality food and incredible service

Always a fabulous meal at Yakitori
Excellent menu with plenty of choices of both hot and cold food. The service was prompt and efficient and the food was all delicious. Will definitely be returning.
all the food was fresh and delicious, not oily at all - tempura was excellent and the service was really good.
Delicious food, impeccable service, can’t recommend highly enough.
Delicious fresh fish and high quality meat. Fast and great service every time we visit. Everything on the menu tastes great and there's plenty of meals that cater to people who don't want sushi, although the sushi is wonderful. Nice drinks and dessert selection and a fairly casual/relaxed atmosphere.
Food is tasty. Services is prompt. Reasonable prices. Lovely staff
Lovely food with great service. Would definitely recommend.
Absolutely stunning! What an absolute gem down Cardiff Bay! Really hot day but perfect temperature inside. Staff were really friendly and super attentive. The food! Honestly I cannot stop thinking about the scallops, the hamachi, the unagi & the flam torched salmon. Can't recommend enough!
The food here is absolutely delicious, it is so fresh and tasty. The staff are also friendly and efficient. I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough.
Went twice food very good on both occasions. Service very quick liked everything we tried.
Amazing, as always!
The food is lovely with plenty of vegetarian options, with various combinations that we hadn't encountered before and enjoying trying.
We enjoyed a long-awaited get together with friends so the food was not the most important part of the evening - it was fine, but the ordering and service could have been better.
Two of our party are gluten free which I mentioned at the time of booking. I asked at the time if alternative dishes could be provided and was told yes eg rice noodles instead of wheat ones.
But when it came to ordering it seemed the waiter was uninterested or did not understand what we were asking. He said hardly anything cld be GF which seemed strange. It took ages to establish what the two could order apart from a bowl of steamed rice - not exactly a special dish to be enjoyed on a night out.
As it turned out the food was fine (it all arrived in random order which was a bit odd) but it was an unnecessary bit of confusion. Surely all restaurants understand GF these days?
All in all we had a good time and it was good value for money, but they need to get their act together for people with food allergies.
Dear LivesinMumbles Many thanks for taking the time to write this review. We do take food allergies very seriously. Our staff are trained and we do have procedures in place with regard to gluten free requests. My waiting staff's response and casual attitude towards your request for gluten free is not acceptable. I am sorry. I can assure you we will investigate and will challenge the employee in question to do better. Thank you, Meng Yap Owner
Tasty authentic Japanese food! Sushi was amazing and great service.
