We enjoyed the food (large portions), polite staff, nice venue! With air conditioner for a hot summer. Recommended!

I once took Yanoki for granted, by living so near it and rarely visiting to eat. It wasn't until a new restaurant opened up and I ate at both restaurants until i began eating more often at Yanoki. Simple answer is I enjoyed it more.,...But that doesn't mean Yanoki will always be my choice for a Japanese meal, I haven't tried the other dishes from the other new restaurant across Yanoki. However, if you are near he west and north end of Richmond British Columbia If you're partner or kids decided to rob you of all your cash and you find your self hungry with nothing more than $20 bill, and still would like to be full, the bento is awesome and is guaranteed to be good and filling. However, if you have you're family or love ones with you, and you have the need to make them feel special by ways of a good meal, then I believe that Yanoki is prepared to satisfy your hungry appetite for a delicious Japanese Meal, like sushi, tempura, ramen, and a list of other untasted dishes, Including the ones that has a price of an arm and a leg. It's there f you come at the right season. Yanoki also has drinks, for both the young, and the old, both in Canadian or Japanese flavor. I believe that Yanoki has all he good qualities and flavor of a good Japanese restaurant while focusing on quality. That's why it's located on the west area of Richmond, BC, a place named Terra Nova, an above average neighborhood where houses are expensive and you are also live near the Fraser river. Thanks for reading and i hope enjoy your meal, where ever it is. Sincerely AMGMore

Terrible food and service. Fish did not seem fresh. Our food came staggered and many items were forgotten in our bento boxes because the food was not ready. They also did not have miso soup ready so it came when we were all finished.

We used to frequent this place regularly but after they made some leasehold improvements the prices went up significantly. There are many better priced options in Richmond.

Having fond memories of this restaurant, even with new owners within the past 10 days, we decided to dine there. Not sure if this is a Japanese Restaurant or Chinese Restaurant. The service is non-existent. We had to request Wasabi, the soy sauce dispenser had...so little soy sauce we actually ran out and there was no offer to refill our tea. We ordered the assorted tempura dish and a dynamite roll. It took forever for our few food selections to materialize. There was nothing memorable about the food other than the tempura batter was greasy and the rice on the dynamite roll was so dry, the roll crumbled.More

Went with my family the other night for dinner. It says Hananoki on the outside but it really is a seafood restaurant now. Not sure what game they are playing at. New menu and many items from old menu not on it. Food was terrible....Will not be going again.More

Service is awful. All those that arrived after us got served first. Half the order for our first person was never received and they received their meal at least 20 minutes before second person. We had to ask twice where was the meal for second...person. We won't be back.More

We were shopping at Save-On and decided to enjoy a Japanese lunch. Being unable to decide we opted for the prawn and scallop dinner and the Bento Box C. Our lunches arrive promptly and real fresh (as Japanese food should be). Parking was a bit...scarce because it was noon time.More

Very disappointed with overpriced bento boxes and not very good service. Give this place a wide berth as there are better similar restaurants with better food and better prices.

Well this was a night out with friends who have been so supportive during my stay here in Richmond. They had been before with previous owners and enjoyed. This was my first time here. Such a disappointing meal. Service was sloppy, unfriendly and rushed. We...all had teriyaki chicken box each with a dynamite roll. The roll was cold and tasteless. The tempura veg were all cold, as well as the prawn. I expected cold sushi! The teriyaki chicken was tasty but only just warm had a suspicion that these boxes were ready and had sat for some time before coming to the table. To add to this deteriorating evening meal, the miso soup arrived when we had nearly finished the box !!! . Now that was hot ! Jasmine tea was also not refreshing. A sorry excuse for a Japanese resturant. My hosts were bitterly disappointed and will not have coming again. Me, not time I'm in Richmond, Vancouver I'll be giving this place a very wide birth. Authentic Japanese food it WAS NOT . Avoid. Save your moneyMore
