We came here after checking out Tripadvisor for a nice Japanese/sushi place in Aberdeen. We wanted something different so Joe suggested letting him order for us, best idea ever! Everything that came was amazing, so tasty and fresh and original. I loved the food, but the service is what gave the wow factor. All I can say is every restaurant should have a Joe!

Haven't been here since it reopened, but was surprised to see my favourites still on the menu and as I remembered them. The food was exquisite and the atmosphere was perfect. I loved it and wish I could eat here everyday! I can't wait to come back.

My boyfriend and I eat in ya tai at least twice a month, so i guess that speaks for itself!

The food is absolutely delicious and we always sample items from the specials menu.

The staff are always really friendly and efficient. I would definitely recommend ya tai...

Faultless service and dishes! I love Wagamama's but it doesn't even compare to Yatai with its freshly cooked food and authenticity. Thoroughly enjoyed my visit and can't wait to return.
