    It was our first experience of Yaki Boi and will not be our last. The staff were very friendly, the food amazing and I had a great passion fruit mojito that went down very easily. It was certainly value for money!

    Decent burger. Nothing ground breaking but enjoyable enough. Wouldn't protest if a friend wanted to go, but not on the top of my to visit again list.

    One of our favourite places, the food is awesome and experimental and the cocktail list is so extensive. My partner was stoked to see Asahi Black on tap. Sitting on the balcony overlooking bustling Lonsdale St makes it feel like you're in Melbourne. The takoyaki pizza is incredible (who knew?) and I'm so happy to have a bar around that has yuzu sake. The only thing is that getting attention to order can be quite slow when busy as staff are sparse, but you should be able to get someone's attention before long.

    Service was poor, kept bringing us food that wasn’t ours, and forgot one of our meals until we reminded them. Was difficult to get a hold of a waiter as well as they barely came past our table!! Food was good, and drinks, but service can improve.

    The burgers were extremely yummy, especially with the liquid cheese. The chips were crunchy with just the right amount of saltiness. My only criticism would be for more Japanese embedded in the fusion of foods. E.g. a Benton box with an assortment of interesting and surprising fusion style eats would really set the menu apart from others, or even more noticeable Japanese flavours in your burgers. Thanks!

    Great food and a very good atmosphere. You get exactly the ambience you're looking for in a bar. Order the Espresso Martini to feel special Salmon poke bowl was totally awesome... and the miso soup. Peri Peri sauce is how it should be, very good

    Unagi Don taste was not as expected. Rice is sticked together. Food is a bit of expensive considering the price. Enviornment is nice with beautiful settings for photo.

    We were kicked out after 50 minutes on New Year’s Eve because they wanted to close where we were sitting early however our booking was for 1.5 hours. Arrived at 9pm kicked out at 9:50pm… barely had time to finish our drinks. Not happy.

    Great burger and cocktails, especially the liquid cheese burger. We tried several special cocktails, which were all wonderful. Also, we want to thank the staff who help us move the table into the indoor when the heavy rain came. She was so nice and friendly! Definitely, we will recommend all our friends to come!

    It was disappointing to have a sashimi snack - thinly slice, not even half of the thinly slice bread level, 4 pieces for $12 and not looks like sashimi grade.

    We had a lovely experience and will highly recommend. I think the only reason I did not give 5 stars is for the menu, I thought it would have had more of a Japanese flair. and perhaps a little more to offer other than burgers and rice bowls. We had a lovely work christmas function. Drinks are divine.

    Service was terrible, not once did staff approach our table to take orders, had to get up and ask for assistance from staff who weren't being attentive to waiting on tables. Drinks took over 20 minutes. There was only one person at the bar making drinks for the entire restaurant, it was clear he couldn't keep up with orders coming through. Food was unremarkable, the deep fried food tasted like something you could purchase at a local take away. The one positive menu item was the jackfruit pizza which was quite tasty and well made

    Fabulous restaurant at Braddon. Choice of eating inside, outside or, for special occasions, in the Yaki Boi. Great range of food and drink options. Staff were very attentive and food was freshly prepared and delivered to the table quickly. The food was fantastic with generally large serving sizes. Well with visiting.
