Welcome to Yakoyo, a family owned Restaurant in Burnaby, Beautiful British Columbia, Canada.

The name "Yakoyo" means satisfaction and enjoyment of great food. Our Food is prepared with integrity and include things like unprocessed, seasonal, sustainable, nutritious, naturally raised, added hormone free ingredients, and since embracing this philosophy, it’s had tremendous impact on how we run our kitchen and our businesses. It’s led us to serve more naturally raised meat than any other restaurant in the country.

It has even influenced the way we view other aspects of our business, from the materials and systems we use to design and build our kitchen, to our staffing and training programs. Exotic spice blends, enticing sauces, highly nutritious, unique and delicious cuisine, are prepared with the finest imported spices. For those who enjoy beef, goat or poultry, Yakoyo is the place to eat.

We like the food we serve today. With our philosophy of integrity and dignity, we’re confident that we all will like it even more down the road.
