It's a shame that Yonaka is located where it is, because both the food and service are terrific. Ignore the neighborhood and enjoy an amazing dinner here. TIP: Enjoy the 10 course meal for a taste of fabulous.

Yummy! Under cool plates, had the Sake (salmon), Toro (fatty tuna) and Tuna Tataki. It was so good we had to order a second round. The fatty yellowtail was also amazing. Shock that the fish was so fresh here (10-15 mins off strip). All the sashimi came out first and it took a long time for the dozen oysters. The... More

I rarely eat Japanese food, but this restaurant has been the best that i have experienced so far. The portions look small, but it does fill you up. They also had a new variety of mixed drinks. Their wine menu was wide with a lot to choose from

Great little restaraunt $15 cab fare from the Strip and really worth the ride. Good broad selection of Sushi, Sashimi and cooked dishes.

Everything was a surprise in terms of the flavor combinations. The most outstanding was the fois gras risotto. Not what you expect in a Japanese restaurant. It is off the beaten path but it is well worth the cab ride.

So my daughter took me to this restaurant for a belated Christmas present. The decor is modern, people very hospitable, We decided to order the omakase lunch which means the chef chooses. If there if something you see on the menu and don't want it included in the omakase. Make sure to let your server know. We had about 6... More

Third time here. It's very good Japanese fresh food with an open kitchen to see the chefs at work. Opted for the $70 tasting menu of 10-12 small courses, which included lots of shushi. Good value wine

We were three of us and ordered the 14 course omakase... brilliant... the food just melts in your mouth. Best teppanyaki restaurant in and around Vegas that we have been to. Simple, Unpretentious and not too severe on the wallet.

I visited Yonaka again after a year and found it to consistent with my last visit. Terrific food, a good pace to the service, and reasonable prices. It is well worth the short trip off the main Strip to this delightful and delicious Japanese restaurant.

Thank P J
