Not what it used to be..

~ 10 years ago it was the first and the only Japanese restaurant in Kaunas. ~ 8 years ago it was the best in the city, with good chefs and staff. But if you don't have a time machine, don't go there, it has completely lost everything...

The place is very very avarage. If You are expecting to have a delight visit to the restaurant with Oriental menu, "Yakata" is not the option in Kaunas any more. We had a family dinner there and got sadly disapointed. First of all, the staff was lazy and not well-communicating. There is obviously a lack of motivation for people working... More

Would not advise visiting this so called restaurant, the service was horrible to the point where it seemed the waitress was ignoring our table, the food was poorly made, we had to wait an hour and a half for our "fresh" meat which was still frozen in places. All in all horrible food, horrible service, would not recomend
