About Yatai Izakaya

Yatai Izakaya is an intimate local eatery with a casual atmosphere, modern Japanese food that practices traditional technique while utilising the best ingredients that Aberdeenshire has to offer.

As a small independent restaurant, we have honed traditional methods over the past eight years to create our own unique take on Japanese cuisine. Our staff are passionate and knowledgeable and inspired by Japanese culture and ingredients as well as locally available and seasonal ingredients.

Authentic Izakaya Style
As is customary in Japan, food should be ordered throughout your meal and will be served slowly over several courses. Our menu is designed to be shared.

Izakaya's in Japan are pubs that serve high quality, sharing dishes accompanied by a nice tipple or two.

Yatai review
9/10
Having spent a couple of weeks in Japan last year, I’m a huge fan of Japanese food. It’s simple, tasty, and usually very quick. I’d been hearing great things about Yatai Izakaya in Aberdeen for a while, but despite being an Aberdonian living in Glasgow, I had never quite made it there. So when making plans to visit a friend in the city, I jumped at the chance to visit and try out all their tasty delights...

Some of the best sushi/sashimi I’ve had in the UK. Will come back whenever I travel to Aberdeen. Great staff and excellent food.

Everything was excellent Every one enjoyed the good and would go back again . Only slight down side was the entire table had to do omakase , but one of the group wasn't that keen , bit of a fussy eater but felt a little pressured to do it as everyone else wanted to do it .

As usual we got in for lunch and went straight for the Bento . The Bento boxes are good value for money and you get to sample a choice of the lunch menu offering. The lunch did not disappoint and the staff were attentive as usual!

Thoroughly enjoyed my first lunchtime visit to Yatai. Food was very tasty indeed. Had the pork buns to start followed by Chicken & Noodles - sorry cant remember the name - but both presented beautifully and flavours were incredible. I will definitely return and very happy to recommend. I especially look forward to trying the expanded evening menu.

Truly one of the best restaurants in Aberdeen. The food is exquisite but still reasonably priced, and definitely won't leave you hungry. Friendly staff and nice intimate atmosphere.
