Wow! What can we say? This continues to be one of our favorite restaurants in Vegas and our overall favorite Japanese restaurant. The food is outstanding. What a great value. The seafood is so fresh. Cooked items are cooked to perfection. Service on January 23, 2017 was superlative.
Many thanks to our waiter and to the chefs.

Lots of food on the menu were out of stock. The food was not good. Tempura tasted weird.

Thank you!

Very good meal with inventive presentations. Some of the flavors were a bit repetitive from dish to dish. Table a bit cramped for amount of food being brought out and service a bit spotty but earnest.
Value very good on Omakase for the quality of ingredients and amount of food.
Limited parking out front, there is a lot on the back. Good find for off strip Vegas, still prefer Raku overall.

This was our second time dining at Yonaka. We were celebrating my wife's birthday on this occasion. The service, quality of food, flavor and presentation were all outstanding. After discovering Yonaka this is now our go to place for Japanese cuisine. My family has owned three Japanese restaurants in the L.A. area and I have been trained as a chef assistant. After moving to Las Vegas six years ago my wife and I have been searching for a good Japanese restaurant. Our search is over.

We did the 14 course option for a party of three. It sounded small but we left full and fulfilled. The taste profile of food is exceptional and the portions were just right. The servers were informative and the sushi chefs behind the bar were very delicate. Their food plating is creative and the mixture of different textures in each course we had was extremely pleasant to the palette. The course meals change seasonally so I will definitely try to be back again during a different season to see what they have.

The 14 course Omakase is the way to go! Selection was great, tasty and fresh. For 4 people it was only $215 which is a steal!

Our servers were great especially John. Will come back again!

Great Japanese tapas type restaurant with very good food with prices to match. Quiet and unassuming in a very small strip mall on Flamingo, food is top rate plus service i.e. Exceptional.

We enjoyed a wonderful lunch at Yonaka. My guest had the mixed salad that included greens, asparagus, avocado, and Asian pear. She said it was an excellent salad but could have used a little more dressing. I had the seaweed cucumber salad topped with octopus. The octopus was very tender and tasty as was the seaweed. My guest then had the restaurant's best selling cold plate. This was salmon with orange supreme, yuzu tobiko, and orange oil. She loved it but it was a bit too tart for my taste. I had an order of salmon belly sashimi. It was topped with salmon roe and on a bed of snow. It was spectacular. I also had a spicy tuna roll that was great. It had a better rice to filling ratio than most other places. The presentations of all the dishes were top shelf. Service was professional and friendly.
