Great delivery experience all around, from the friendly order take who gave an honest estimate on delivery time (they were very busy, and the estimate was bang on) to the tasty pizza. Nice crispy, light crust and flavorful pizza sauce and generous toppings. Highly recommended.

Discovered this place after looking through Tripadvisor for good eats in Merritt. We have made it a point to stop here either when going to or returning from our travels. We call ahead on the road so our order is always ready. We've tried a...few calzones, 'The Tank' (large) is our favourite. Perfect amount for splitting as they are large. Fresh crust. Best eaten right away. Still have to try the pizzas. Why anyone would eat at the subway next door with this tasty place, is a surprise. This just adds to the fun of our journeys.More

By far the best pizza in Merritt when compared to the other offerings in town. Although I've only eaten here once, the pizza was delicious and service great. They screwed up on my initial order for the Greek Vegetarian and added olives, which oddly, isn't...listed as a topping for a Greek pizza. Apparently it was an oversight on the menu as olives should have been listed. I find olives repulsive, and without hesitation they cooked me a fresh one, sans olives, within 10 minutes. Quality, price, and taste a cut above the other pizza options in Merritt (Panago, Boston Pizza) although Roaster Barn also isn't bad given its setting. And the Caesar salad was also very generously-sized and tasty!More

One of the best pizza places it has ever been my pleasure to salivate about. Yaki's is a local institution; deservedly so. I've only had the pizzas and calzones, but when I lived here, I got a lot of them. Today I was visiting from...out of town and called from the highway to take out a pair of Super Dave Phillys. I was told they were out of turkey, but when I asked if they could make it with chicken, I was advised that they only had breast meat, which was fine with me. They were spectacular as always. As other reviewers have noted, they are über fresh, and bursting like an over-ripe tomato full of goodies. I've always had decent service here.More

I don't know how much more I can say other than it was a good pizza, they delivered to the hotel and it was pretty quick.

My boyfriend and I came in to have lunch and what can I say, great service and great food. I got a vegetarian pizza which was amazing and my boyfriend got a calzone which he found smashing! Value for money and great location. For sure...I recommend this place and for sure we will be coming back! Thanks againMore

Crispy crust, well loaded with our particular choices of toppings. If you are next door at the Empty Keg, they will text you when your order is ready. Great respite after a long day of driving.

Party plans ruined by weather. Last minute scramble. Staff really pulled through to accommodate a herd of hungry pre teens. Helpful and fast service. Food was a hit. Not much left afterwards.
