The best stalls of all are found on Nakasu Island, lined up along the city’s neonlit riverside, serving yakitori and drinks until the early morning.

Frequently Asked Questions
How to reserve restaurants in Fukuoka?
Reserving restaurants in Fukuoka can be done by directly making a phone call to the restaurant itself. This, however, can be challenging if you do not speak Japanese as you might be faced with a language barrier, depending on the staff. As a more simple alternative, you can reserve a restaurant in Fukuoka by using a service that assists foreigners in reserving restaurants ahead of time. ByFood is an example of a platform that you use to reserve restaurants in Fukuoka. Using the byFood filtering system, you can see what restaurants are available in Fukuoka. This makes it easy to reserve a table depending on the local area, type of food you want to eat, your budget, and various dietary requirements. Simply add in your reservation details and byFood will secure seats at the restaurant on your behalf and send you a confirmation email. If the reservation is rejected, however, you will be sent a failed reservation email.
Is a reservation required for restaurants in Fukuoka?
Reservations in Fukuoka are not always necessary, but this depends on the restaurant. It is not possible to book at yatai street food stalls for example, but high-end restaurants usually require a booking, or at least it is encouraged.

You can expect to pay about 800 yen for a cheap meal at a restaurant in Fukuoka. Slightly fancier meals can be 1500 yen to 2000 yen at lunch, depending on the restaurant. Fine dining is also available, starting at 5000 yen per person, with prices tending to be more expensive during dinnertime.
