Passed by this restaurant during lunch. Went in 'cause we're craving for Japanese food. Lunch was around $15-18. Service was slow despite there wasn't many customers. Food was decent. A good choice for Japanese food in the area.

Great place for dinner in Manayunk. We ordered the gyoza and multiple rolls. It was very clear that they use high quality ingredients here. Great atmosphere, nice interior and enjoyable dining experience. Would definitely return.

I was very pleasantly surprised with this little Thai place. The atmosphere was very serene, the staff extremely attentive, and the food was delicious and authentic. My co-worker found the food a little too spicey, but I thought it was perfect! I would encourage you to try this wonderful little restaurant!

Me any my wife like to eat Thai food. We haven't had any in years and we decided at the spur of the moment to try out this place. When we went in the staff were friendly and the place was clean. Definitely liked the interior decoration, but felt that the seating was too close to each other to enjoy... More

As a Manayunk resident, Yanako is our favorite restaurant in the area. The food is always excellent, fresh, and delicious. The atmosphere is unique and beautiful. The waitstaff are friendly and helpful and seem passionate about the food they serve. One of the best parts is that Chabaa Thai is also available from the Yanako kitchen while their own restaurant...

Yanako is a favorite for our family, and we return here quite often for the consistent service, delicious food, and great atmosphere. Excellent Japanese cuisine, and while their sister restaurant- Chabaa Thai- is relocating, they have Thai classics as well.

I wanted to go to Chabaa, which was closed. The sign in the door said a limited Thai menu was available at Yanko. After being seated, I found out that Thai items were only available on the restaurant week menu. I was very disappointed by that because I didn't want to have to order a four course dinner just to...

I thought the food here was very fresh, nicely spiced, nothing too overwhelming, seemed authentic (but what do I know?), and the service was excellent. Our female serveer helped us out (newbies to sushi) and she was spot on with all her advice. We had soups, sushi, teriyaki, tempura, and since we brought our own bottle of wine, the final... More

Went with a large group to celebrate friend's birthday. They have an upstairs area, which can seat large groups. Thank goodness it was a BYOB. I had the chicken teriyaki, wife had lobster tempura, others had what looked to be an excellent salmon tempura. Others had sushi, dumplings, etc. Service was overall good, especially for a large crowd, which took... More
