Description: Yakitori #1 provides modern Japanese cuisine using the freshest ingredients from sustainable sources. It is the place to come for the best Sushi, Grilled Meats, Fish and Wok-Fried Noodles & Rice. The menu is alluring, the dishes are authentic with an emphasis on simple yet attractive presentation. Dishes are designed to be shared at the table or enjoyed individually. Enjoy superb Japanese food in the form of a light meal in an informal setting and watch our expert chefs at work in our open kitchen.

Only our second visit to this place but both my husband and both went 'Wow how tasty.' Will be going again soon.

Very clean, very efficient and the food is excellent. I've tried a few "authentic" Japanese restaurants in the UK and to be honest only a handful of them get it right. Yakaitori is one that does. Pricing to be fair to them is reasonable. Portion size is spot on. It's a modern take on Japanese restaurants so it doesn't have the authenticity that the restaurants in Japan have. But it's fair to say that I will be back and happily recommend this place to many of my friends who enjoy Japanese food.

First time visiting Yakitori and it was wonderful. We went along with friends for a birthday. Our meals arrived quickly and near enough all together. The staff were wonderful and very accommodating to our large group.

My wife and I absolutely love sushi. Having had a lot of sushi in Korea and Japan, we are often disappointed by sushi restaurants in the UK. But here we had the best sushi we have had in the UK by a mile, and we've had a lot of sushi in the UK. Great portions, the other dishes we had were also fantastic, it was fresh, it was tasty. We will visit again when back in Cardiff! The service was also good.

Lots of choice, lots of flavour, excellent service. If you actively choose to go to Wagmama over this place, your making bad life choices.
