If there is ONE thing you must eat when you're in LA, it's Yatai's famous spicy tuna crispy rice burger! We're talking spicy ahi tuna in between two fried rice patties with sliced avocados & Japanese mayo-quite possibly the BEST thing I've ever eaten!

This place is slightly hidden but the food is good. Has good flexible variety that creates set of combo of your own. Try their popcorn shrimp and their rolls.

Spicy Tuna Burger was delish! Ask for light spicy mayo though.

Also, green tean is in a can, boo, but still good.

Best restaurant in WeHo – Spicy Tuna Rice Burger. This place is one of my favorites in the whole city, not to mention the amazing prices.

Spicy Tuna Rice Burger! – Went here for lunch out of the blue and was blown away. The decor is beautiful and classic Asian and once I saw the menu I couldn't decide where to start. The taps sounded exquisite as did the rolls, but the lunch special for the Spicy Tuna Rice Burger with pumpkin tempura and curry salt for $8.50 had me intrigued. I didn't even understand it but I had to try it. And I don't regret it. It's unlike anything I've ever tried and really delicious and surprisingly filling. Spicy tuna and avocado with special sauce between two crispy sticky rice patties. Just divine.

Now I have to go back and try those tapas I passed up. If I can refrain from ordering the burger again.

Good service! nice atmosphere – This restaurant is one of the best place for date.

They were kind and provided good service.

I liked their style of serving in a small dish.

The overall atmosphere was great and would recommend this place!!

A light in the dark – Music curls through the air like smoke - iced sake trickles out of a bamboo shoot, a waterfall, my cup overfloweth.

Happy hour every night from 6-8PM, movie lights flicker off the wall, trees canopy the outdoor open air court, dark wood interiors wrap one in comfort. A cornucopia of select Japanese izakaya deliciousness for lunch and dinner.

A respite from the flow outside, a haven, a recharge, a gathering of friends.

Amazing Sushi and Amazing prices – This place is great. I go there at least once a week, the service is phenomenal, the sushi is fresh and its very inexpensive. Definitely worth it. I recommend the seared albacore w/ crispy onion and the crispy rice w/ spicy tuna. I love that its my neighborhood sushi joint.

The BEST! – We go to Yatai at least once a week. (We even took the location into consideration when we bought our new house...we didn't want to leave the neighborhood!) The tapas are terrific and creative -- don't miss the spicy tuna on crispy rice and the light-as-air pumpkin tempura -- and the service is warm, attentive and friendly.

Great Place and Value! Love the food, Staff and Service! – This is one of my favorite places that I discovered initially searching for tapas and on Restaurant

com. I visit often for I don't even know how long now but I must say that I'm surprised to have seen such a negative review posted earlier on since every visit I made is always consistent with great service, great food, great people. The owner is accomodating and staff is so customer service oriented. I love the concept of japanese dishes served tapas style since I like to have a taste of everything although my boyfriend and I keep ordering the same dishes we enjoy most. Be sure to taste their famous Spicy Tuna on Crispy Rice which you can get here for better quality and less the price compared to some of the fancy, trendy sushi restaurants I been to in Los Angeles. My boyfriend does admit that he likes the Spicy Tuna on Crispy Rice just as much at Tao in the Venetian in Las Vegas, but unless you're out in Vegas often, this place would be the place to go. In addition, they have patio seating outdoors where if warm enough, you can sit and eat outside. I was able to bring along my shih tzu pup to enjoy the evening with us as well.

Best sushi I've EVER had! – Yatai is across the street from my work and I literally eat there at least twice a week. It is the best, freshest, tastiest sushi I ever had - and that's not an exageration. I've eaten at other sushi places - even expensive, trendy ones - and none compare. And everything on the menu is delicious (I've had it all!) The great reviews truly are well-deserved.
