Nagahama Yatai Yamachan (Nakasu) Reviews

Nagahama Yatai Yamachan (Nakasu) Google Average Rating



I looked up this yatai (food stall) on CultureTrip.com since it was very highly rated. I am so thankful we did poke our heads in this semi-hidden restaurant—it has been the best food experience we have had in Japan so far! The staff couldn’t speak English well, but we showed them photos of food off Google maps and they were happy to assist. The waygu beef was absolutely delicious, albeit expensive, and worth the try. Ramen is cheap and delicious. If you show them the photos posted here and order two bowls of ramen, meal will be about 5700 yen. We knew we had come to a good hole-in-the-wall restaurant when it filled up with locals only minutes after opening!


This is must-go place when you are in Hakata. They have multiple locations across the town. I went to Nakasu location after business dinner to fill the remaining space in my stomach with best stuff available in this city. I was lucky to find it.


They were very kind even though we can't speak japanese.
