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.
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.
Lovely food and excellent service. Will definitely be back.
Excellent evening with great food.
fantastisk mat, service. Trevlig liten restaurant i mitten of Aberdeen. Representerar japansk mat.
My first visit to this restaurant and I was not disappointed. Would definitely recommend, good vegetarian choices.
Thank you. First visit and would definitely return on our next visit to Aberdeen
Love the ribs
Faultless meal …..The Mackerel was amazing!
Have been many times and it is as a great as ever. The special of carpaccio beef with hazelnut pesto and wild garlic was incredible.
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 .
Myself & my partner had a great first visit & enjoyed the great food! Our server was very attentive and great with recommendions regarding the menu! We will be back again soon!
Beautiful place with incredible tasty food , absolutely love it. Will definitely come back again!
Deliciously different. Excellent service. Bit on the pricy side.
Good value, friendly service and amazingly delicious food!
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!
The food and service was first class
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.
First time taking my kids. They loved it and food was amazing as always.
We had a wonderful lunch. The food was delicious and the waiter was friendly and helpful. Will definitely be back.
I now understand why people hold this place at such a high regard. Amazing service and suggestions from the staff. This is a must, try it for yourself, don't take any ones word for it.
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.
Everything was perfect as it has been every time we have dined with you. The food is delicious and the staff are friendly and informative. Great restaurant.
Our favourite place to eat. Never disappoints!
Great Food, great service. Can't wait to come back to try more of the menu!
Good fantastic! Love this place! Wish the ramen etc was available after 7pm.
