“Little variety; food not much too crow about”
Review of Yatai

Yatai
Ranked #48 of 408 things to do in Fukuoka
Attraction details
Reviewed 25 December 2017

Was expecting this to be one of the highlights of my trip, as I loved street food. I visited the yatai on the small island near the Nakasu-kawabata metro stop; there were about twenty clustered at the far end of the island from the station. Most of the stores had similar offerings: ramen, yakitori, and some other assorted dishes. But food quality itself isn't fantastic. The yatai themselves were small "huts" with very cramped seating, which I actually didn't mind because it fit the atmosphere, but also gave lots of pressure on the people manning the yatai to keep track of orders properly. Overall, I would recommend visiting the place once, but more for the atmosphere and novelty of it rather than the food itself.

saw only 2 roadside stores, which enclosed tentage... not really that appealing to enter. i would have though its grab-and-go, like skewers or other bite-size food, but appears to be more of ramen or full-meal types

For those who’s wanna try out Yatai foods in Fukuoka.. don’t waste your time and money, it’s not worth it at all, foods taste just normal but price are overcharged.. better try out at restaurant... nothing special except the price are highly charged... think twice before u go...

I was very excited to check out Yatai but when I got there I didn’t feel it was that special. Some of the stores are very crowded and some are empty. I looked at the menu and everything is over 1000yens. I don’t know if this is the cost of Yatai’s food. I didn’t try any so can’t comment on how the quality is but when I walked back to the Main Street, I was able to get some Hakata ramen with cheaper price and it tastes delicious.

Nice View, interesting concept but maybe not the best place to have a meal because it is very crowded, and the food are ok.
