A little piece of Japan in the heart of Hong Kong’s Wan Chai, Youka has become one of the city’s premier locations to enjoy yakitori, sushi and sashimi. Located in a prime location on Johnston Road, Youka brings a distinct style and elegance to an already fashionable cuisine. Available for lunch and dinner, the restaurant is open daily, close walking distance to Wan Chai station and just steps from Gresson Street and Luaroad Road tram stops.
Taking inspiration from seaside Hokkaido, Youka’s interior is beautifully furnished with sleek tables, contrasting earthy colours and chic lighting. Featuring an open kitchen, Youka on Johnston Road in Hong Kong’s Wan Chai allows diners to view their orders being freshly cooked (or delicately rolled, if it’s sushi) and enjoy a Japanese beer or two while they wait. With master chef Ito Katsuhiro in the kitchen, who brings over 20 years of expertise to Youka, diners are ensured the most authentic and high-quality Japanese cuisine money can buy.
Youka is popular because of its affordable lunch specials, the perfect solution for busy Hong Kong workers looking to enjoy a quick and tasty meal. The Youka special bento box is an excellent choice – featuring an appetiser, salad, steamed egg, an array of dishes (grilled, deep-fried and simmered), rice, soup, pickles and dessert, the box gives diners a lot of bang for their buck. Visit Wan Chai’s Youka for dinner and choose from hot dishes like Japanese chicken teriyaki and grilled ox-tongue with black pepper, or go raw with a deluxe assorted sashimi platter. Let chef Katsuhiro give you a true Japanese experience – reserve ahead of time and secure a table.
The food is fresh and excellent and the service very professional. Very convenient location in Wanchai close to mtr and tram. I would recommend Youka to any japanese food lover.
Very good Japanese spot which focuses on Hokkaido style cuisine. Fantastic spot for lunch or dinner. Such a relaxing and calm space amongst the business that is Wan Chai.
Very nice restaurant! Excellent Japanese food and good service. I will definitely come back and try something else. It was very busy so I would highly recommend to make a reservation if people want to go here! Highly recommend this place!
Very fresh food and restaurant was fully booked which is always a very good sign. The appetisers were very interesting. Restaurant is small so easy to manage for quality. Recommended
All the dishes were very delicious! I'm happy to find a place to enjoy real Japanese taste food in HK. Moreover, it was happy to have chose glasses for Japanese Sake. I would like to visit again!
Youka is one of the best (and authentic) Japanese restaurants in Wan Chai. The menu is diverse with a small but adequate sake menu. A great place for Hong Kong's salary men and women alike.
A little hideaway on a bustling HK street. Great food, great service. A little bit pricey but that's just a reality of Hong Kong. Will definitely be going back!
