Disney World Dining: Yakitori House

If you are looking for a picturesque setting for your Disney Dining experience, then look no further than the Yakitori House in the Japan Pavilion of Epcot.
This Epcot Quick Service Restaurant not only serves authentic Japanese dishes like Teriyaki Chicken, Tempura, and Sushi, but also provides a beautiful setting in which to enjoy your meal.

Based Upon Historic Japanese Tea House
The Yakitori House was designed upon the architecture of the Tea House at the Katsura Imperial Villa in Kyoto, Japan that was built in the 17th centurty.
Like the Torii Gate and the pagoda that also grace the Epcot Japan Pavilion, the Yakitori House has a remarkable resemblance to the original Japanese Landmark.
It is worth your time to explore the Yakitori House and the surrounding areas.  In addition to the fascinating architecture of the building you will find a quiet outdoor seating area, beautifully landscaped gardens, a koi pond. 
The picture above shows some of the remarkable pathways and landscaping just outside of the Yakitori House.  Across the small bridge you will find the peaceful outdoor seating area.  This location is a great place to "get away" for a little bit and have a relaxing moment within Epcot.

There is also seating within the Yakitori House, where the decorations and design of the building transport you to Japan.

Great Disney Dining Experience
The Yakitori House is a great Disney World Quick Dining Restaurant.  Lou Mongello of the WDW Radio Show, recently rated this as one of his top 2 favorite Quick Service Dining locations.  If you have listened to Lou's podcasts you know that food is an important part of his Disney experience. 

In addition to the Japanese cuisine to try, it is worth it to just explore the building and the surrounding gardens.  As mentioned before the outdoor seating area is a great place to take a break a relax in a secluded place at Epcot.

For all of the above reasons the Yakitori House is a recommended place to visit during your next visit to Epcot.
