The food is really good and tasty aswell as good prized. The staff can sometimes be a bit grumpy, but its latvia. The atmosphere is okay but not more. Didnt bother us too much but could be better.

We went out to this place twice during our visit to Riga, nice and affordable. Nice variety (though not enough vegetarian options).

We had a nice sushi dinner at this place. By the look and taste, we felt the fish was fresh and the chefs skilled. A little local touch might have added the little extra. But all in all, a good meal

Tasty sushi for a low price, some of the sushis have a special offer 2 for the price of 1. Also a wide range of vegetarian options.

Makis were quite nice but the staff was actually horrible this day, did not want to divide the bill, then to admit that they were wrong on the bill, very angry woman there, we were a bit afraid. They lost 4 clients. No commercial sense at all.

In my third time in Riga I literally found the place to eat before taking my flight. In the morning, their staff was friendly, smiley staff and the food was ready as much as fresh. Akane roll along with grauzdini ar lasi made my day. I will be back.

Every time we come to Riga my husband and I visit yakuza to enjoy lovely atmosphere, delicious and reasonably priced sushi and fast service. This visit didn't fail. As always lots of sets u can buy for the price of one. So u get good value for money.

We took 2x soups, 2x sushi and 2x main dishes and we were a little bit disappointed about the quality of food. Everything tasted unnaturally, I would say that what we got was fast food. The waitress didn't speak Latvian very well, so she just took the order and brought the food.

Thanks for your review. In order to let us improve our service, could you send an email to info@yakuza.lv and give us more details on the issue with the waitress? Normally we don't tolerate unprepared personnel, but obviously sometimes we don't meet the targets we set to ourselves :) More

I don't understand how this establishment is still operating. Such a tacky attempt on Asian cuisine. Sushi are just average and I don't see how a restaurant with such a big menu can deliver fresh dishes.

Description
Yakuza is a small yet modern and fashionable restaurant well placed on the crossing of Akas and Gertrudes streets, right in the center of Riga. The place serves Asian and Italian cuisine and boasts two sushi chefs with vast international experience. Sushi menu is extensive and creative, but one can find dishes from Thai, Chinese and even Italian cuisine on the menu which offers much more than just your ordinary Philadelphia Maki. Classy interior is crafted by award-winning Latvian designer Larisa Pomescikova, three TV screens project Cartoon Network or Fashion TV (but sport is available on demand), while music is a mix of lounge and modern jazz.
