Amazing food and lovely service, one of our favorite places in Cardiff!
The best meal I’ve ever had, the staff were very friendly and the food was great value, the restaurant was clean and the wait for food was practically non existent. Will definitely be making it a regular stop when we move to Cardiff in a few months!
Fabulous!!!! The service was excellent. The food was fresh, hot and tasty. It was brought to the table within 15 minutes of ordering. Decent size portions but we ordered small plates thinking they were starters and then large plates for a main. It all came at once and we were finished within half an hour of ordering. Our fault. Next time we go (which we definitely will be) we will order a couple of bits at a time so we can really enjoy the food. Would def recommend. Plenty of alternative options for those who don't enjoy fish.
The sushi was amazing and the service was great. All round very friendly atmosphere.
Good food and wonderful ambience. Had 10 Nigri roll of sushi special for 1 and more Unagi. Perfect food and perfect company. Probably one of the best Japanese restaurants in Cardiff, maybe even Wales
Always a good experience with this restaurant. Great value for money and fantastic service.
This is a real gem of a restaurant.
The food is fantastic.
Great restaurant to go to if you crave the Japanese style of sushi, would definitely recommend to a friend
Beautiful food, especially the flamed salmon nigiri
Good choice of food, including vegan. Away from the waterfront hubbub.
Lovely service and delicious food, would recommend
Really nice food and service . Definitely will recommend this restaurant
Good food, nice owner and staff, overall a very good experience, will definitely be going back
Simply amazing! Thank you
Fantastic food as always. Always a pleasure to visit
This was our first time dining at Yakitori1 and the food was very good, our favourite was the surf and turf sushi option, the steak with sticky rice and the king prawns with noodles. We will definitely return 👍
Lovely food, although I received the wrong special that I ordered. Wasn't disappointed though, and an easy mistake to make given the similarity in name (and probably my own pronunciation).
The food was satisfyingly delicious . Would definitely go back.
Lovely food served promptly and very politely. Help given as to choice and the set lunch meal was really good value. All covid regulations observed so it was a safe place. Really good and I would recommend eating there.
Ordered ramen but not what I expected. Food was just reheated and the noodles were overcooked which was not authentic ramen noodles unfortunately.
I was hoping for lovely fresh food but I’m sure my curry was just out of the microwave. As we were half way through eating our curry they bought our sushi over. (Bit late) didn’t complain just ate it.
Toilet was blocked an dirty.
The food was incredible, best sushi I've had yet. The service was excellent, and the location was very good. I highly recommend it!
Brilliant food and amazing service even helped with choice when trying new food will definitely be back again
I really enjoyed my visit here. So much so that I rebooked to come back the following week! Great food and ambience. Perfect.
We love Yakitori, the only thing we both noted is the sushi seems to have gotten smaller. I know that theyve had a lot of financial issues (pandemic) but it’s really very small rolls now in comparison to other establishments.
We celebrated my husband’s birthday with a sushi lunch.
Perhaps next time someone also lets them know it’s someone’s birthday they could do a little something ie write happy birthday on a dessert plate or offer bday drink or snack. After all we spent a lot of money and little something goes along way to make customers feel more valued. Just a suggestion not a complaint.
We order a lot of food and we really enjoyed it. Only let down was we order the Yakitori 1 flamed nigiri special and received the Yakitori 1 nigiri special instead. I did mention this to the waiter but we had already eaten half so felt like we couldn’t very well return it for our original order. We understand mistakes happen. What we did eat was lovely and as always we will be back.
Thank you again yakitori your sushi is always lush.
Love Yakitori. Good to see that they've survived all the lockdowns and are open again. fine food as always.
Service is efficient and quietly attentive. Food tasty, well presented and swiftly served. We have always enjoyed our visits and looking forward to the next
Amazing food and service, would highly recommend!
Lovely food, well presented and very tasty. Good value for money.
Always pleasant dining there. Quite regular
Great service, food and pricing. I have been previously myself but took my family this time round who enjoyed it!
Outstanding food, extensive menu, cooked quickly and great service. Cannot wait to go back.
All good. Recommended. Quick, polite and nice food.
As a regular visitor to Yakitori I can say it is always exceptional - by far the best Sushi restaurant in Cardiff. The food is always quick and fresh and there is so much choice too!
The staff are very polite and their interaction is ideal.
Very impressed with the proprietor, who was dealing with the whole restaurant himself yet still providing quick, friendly service.
The food was good - clean, fresh and cooked to order - and plenty of choice. All dishes were nice, but the salmon sashimi was outstanding.
Not much to the restaurant itself in terms of decor and atmosphere, but fine for a quick meal.
We found it expensive, although perhaps understandable considering the location and good quality ingredients.
Overall, I would recommend.
Excellent food and drinks, expensive but totally worth it.
As always a absolute delight. Great food at a great price. Delicious
Yakitori is without doubt, the best restaurant in the bay, and best Japanese restaurant in Cardiff
Another great sushi meal. Glad there back open. Will be be back soon
