Yorokobi by CJ, Japanese and Korean Restaurant in Aberdeen

I’ve been to Yorokobi once before for a quiet meal and I’ve also popped in for a bento box take out – so what’s it like on a busy Saturday night?

Yorokobi by CJ has an extensive menu featuring both Japanese and Korean cuisine.  There are plenty of options and it’s possible to eat in whichever style you fancy.  You could go for a traditional starter, main and dessert or you could order a variety of dishes to share amongst your table.

I was there with a group of friends, and we decided to order a variety of starters to share and then move on to our own individual main course.

So, it was Japanese for starters – Agedashi Tofu, Vegetable Gyoza for me and my meat-eating friends opted for some Chicken Teriyaki skewers and we all shared some Vegetable Tempura.

I decided to go Korean for my main, with a traditional Vegetable Bibimbab topped with obligatory fried egg!  I ate quite a lot of Korean food when I was in Sydney, and this matched up to the quality I got over there.

Sorbets and ice cream was the perfect way to finish the meal off, refreshing and light!

The food was fantastic, but the service could do with a little work.  When I ordered our wine, the waitress told me it was by the glass only, despite the menu stating that I could order a bottle.  They weren’t too fast at clearing our table fully between courses, and we sometimes had to prompt them.  I think we had a new waitress, but I think the poor lass could have done with some extra support from her colleagues.

It’s a great restaurant though, and I’d definitely recommend it and I’ll be going back.
