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.
Great food, drink and service! Will definitely be back.
Amazing food, great service. We will be back!
First time there on Friday, everything was perfect and couldn't have asked for more :)
Authentic Japanese atmosphere and great food. I visit Yatai every time i'm in Aberdeen.
Brilliant food and service. Will definatly be back!
This was my second visit and I have to say it was some of the best food I have ever had. The vegan options are fantastic and the service was brilliant. I will come back time and time again.
The best eating experience in Aberdeen. Friendly knowledgeable staff, delicious food. Can't recommend highly enough.
Great take on Japanese food.Will return
They are great at accommodating vegans and are creative. We come back every year to celebrate and eat good food. Thank you
As always, fantastic dining experience and I don't think you can go anywhere better. Always an absolute pleasure eating here and perfect for any occasion.
Good food and nice atmosphere. Slightly expensive, like many japanese izakayas. It felt a bit rushed, we got the meals a bit too quickly which made it hard to savour each dish for very long.
Had a great night out with my colleagues at Yatai! For one of them it was their first time here and he too was pleasantly surprised by the food which we all thoroughly enjoyed. We went with the Omakaze which gave us an opportunity to sample the best Yatai had to offer. Overall good food and service.
Always great to dien here! Great service, great food! yum yum :)
The food was amazing and the service was really good. The only change I would like to see if a bigger wine menu offering a sauvingnon blanc as the Italian white we had was nothing special. Yatai is still my favourite restaurant in aberdeen though!
Excellent food, a joy to eat. Cocktails also very good. And very reasonably priced.
Excellent food, perfect amount and we really enjoyed the Omakase dining experience. We will go back.
Very good meal!
Yatai is my favourite restaurant in Aberdeen, there's too many good points to list. It is always a treat to dine here and the staff are very friendly and very knowledgeable. I've always liked every dish I've ordered and sometimes wish I could just keep ordering more dishes. The Takoyaki might be my new favourite.
Amazing food and service! Will definitely be back.
Great food and knowledgeable and helpful staff.
We had a fantastic anniversary meal at Yatai, great service, friendly and fun staff, cold beer and most importantly excellent food. Can’t wait to go back again soon. Kids wanting to join us next time too. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Amazing food as always. Staff are wonderful & service, top notch. 5 Stars.
Everything about this restaurant is amazing. The food is delicious, great atmosphere, incredibly attentive staff. I keep coming back and I keep telling other people to go. One of the best places to eat in the city.
