We (me and my wife) bought a coupon for tattings. Apparently they do not provide that kind of meal. They told us that only if we bought it before the covid 19 they would respect it. I would expect a much better service. For example,...to provide us what we paid for and not solve their problems/mistakes on the expense of their costumers.More

Once it was a fine dining restaurant with dishes and service you can't see anywhere in Tel Aviv. This time we experienced an average sushi place that absolutely doesn't worth the price you pay. Not coming back anytime soon.

Yakimono is an excellent Japanese restaurant. They have a very extensive menu and most of their sauces etc are home made. I highly recommend trying the business lunch menu. Absolutely wonderful service and delicious food

I had Yakimono delivered at home for my boyfriend's birthday - it was during the lockdown. The food was amazing and the service was great. I ordered on the phone with Shlomi who was very patient describing me the dishes and the delivery was right...on time. We took their secret recipe drink, still don't know what it is but I highly recommend it! Once restaurants will open again we will definetely go!More

This is the worst Japanese restaurant I have ever ordered from. All the dishes were well below par. The quality of fish was low, the portions were small and VERY expensive for what you get. The worst part was when I ordered the Maguro Pepper...dish (photo attached). This tiny dish cost me 95 shekels (25 Euros). Not only was it a low quality tuna and low in quantity, it was also stale, leaving my stomach rumbling all night. When I questioned the restaurant, they claimed it was high quality tuna. What a lie! - Judge for yourself by the photo. This was definitely not Otoro, nor Chutoro (They can't fool those who know about tuna)More

If this is one of the best Japanish restaurant in Tel Aviv, you better find another place. We went there seat on the bar got recommended to try the tasting menu, food was boring old fashion and not good , very disappointed, not worth the...money at all . the only reason gave this place 2 stars and not one is that the bartender was great and gave great service after all maybe if we didn’t order the tasting menu the results were different After eating in many Japanish restaurant around the world this one was my least favorite experienceMore

what exactly is the question ? If you had a bad experience in Yakimono, then it is really a rare situation, or a bad expectation-match. I've been dining in Yakimono for the last ten years on a regular basis - several times... More
