Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My mum and dad visited and as she's partially sighted, they put both my parents in a well lit seat immediately. Also had two courses which were so tasty and immense flavour, they also cut up the noodles in my mum's dish and gave her...a spoon. Customer service was exemplary as was the food, will definitely be going back!!More

We are regulars at Yakotori. Never been disappointed and once again dishes and service were excellent. Unbeatable for sushi, but yakisoba also top notch. Must be the best of its kind in the city. Outstanding.

Three main courses, a shared starter and a bottle of wine for £79 is excellent value. The service is very efficient and it's ideal for early dining before a short walk to.the Millennium Centre. The chicken Katsu curry is very good

This place never fails to deliver on freshness of the ingredients and food that impresses on the plate you can’t wait to eat. We ordered several sides to try which were all outstanding!! Sushi served here is on another level. The whole meal was absolutely...delicious and we will definitely be returning soonMore

Quite simply the best meal we've had in many years. Great food, friendly and excellent service. Recommend the beef, although everything was good. Planning to go back next month.

Amazing restaurant - so glad we came here! A few of us ordered the Katsu Curry, which far exceeded our previous experiences with other restaurants/chains.

It was overpriced and underwhelming. If I’d wanted to eat fried filo pastry with little filling, minute portions and soba noodles that weren’t (greasy chow mein) I could botch that at home. Husband’s ramen was ok although beef a bit tough and don’t use dry...noodles. Asking for wasabi seemed an insult as well. Wouldn’t go again and as pressed for time didn’t say anything to the conspicuously absent staff.More

There's no question that the food here is really good. We ordered a selection of dishes from different parts of the menu and they were all equally delicious. The restaurant is light and airy and the staff where helpful. However, we were in and out...within an hour. It almost felt like being on the sushi conveyor. The dishes arrived within minutes of each other so there was no feeling of a relaxed dinner. Maybe it was because there was only two of us, however, I noticed that others who arrived at the same time as us were also leaving at the same time.More

We were happily seated on a busy Saturday, with no booking However, the waitress who took our initial drinks order was clearly having a bad moment, because she was so miserable and behaved like she didn’t want to be there The menu itself was probably...the most limited we have come across for a Japanese restaurant and prices were high So far, we were regretting coming in Decor wise, it felt like a mini version of a generic Wagamama The boy ordered a Dragon Roll but didn’t want the avocado, stating he preferred cucumber The wife order chicken karaage ramen and I went for the salmon teriyaki yaki soba His maki roll came out extremely quickly and the amazing chefs replaced the avocado with extra cucumber instead - he loved it The broth in the wife’s ramen was impressive - far better than most Japanese restaurants we have eaten in, in the UK and the noodles were nice and springy The chicken could’ve done with being served on the side to retain their crispiness, but a minor detail My soba was flavourful and it was a different cut of salmon that I was accustomed to - delish Even the drinks waitress’s mood seemed to improve as she showed off her wonderful smile So, all in all….I would recommend you try this place amongst the hustle and bustle of the standard chain restaurants found down the BayMore

Superb food, one of the best places I have eaten. Menu was overwhelming for choice, so have to visit again just to try more on the menu. Fully recommend a visit.

Probably if you book in advance, they have plenty seating and it never seems to be particularly busy unless there's a group booking in. Lovely food.
