We've been loyal customers at Yummyaki for ten years. It is our favorite restaurant for dine in or take out. The kids devour every bite. It's so nice to have a healthy eating option that appeals to the entire family. Combo 3 and combo 9 are our go to favorites. You won't ever be disappointed with the quality of food at Yummyaki.

The menu is pretty big but the food is always cooked quite well. I have ordered the chicken don, bento box, and some sushi rolls. It's all quite delicious with savory salty tastes. Service is pretty quick and the ambiance is lightly dimmed so it's great for both dates and group gatherings (max 6 prob).

Kenzo is amazing. The meat in the ramen is so tender, and the soup base has tons of flavor. It is ALWAYS busy! You get great service from the waiters and waitresses despite them probably being stressed out on the inside from dealing with a busy, fast-paced environment throughout their entire shift. The portion is great, and so is the price. I love this place and have nothing but good things to say about it.
