Sunday buffet.

Partner and I visited for the Sunday buffet, you help yourself to the selection of sushi and hot food then have choice of one main course cooked when you're ready (chicken, pork or salmon with vegetables). There wasn't a huge selection of hot buffet but the sushi was good, and varied. At £20.00... read more

Yo-Ji came highly recommended, described as the local place to go for Japanese food. Friends of ours raved about Yo-Ji and so we thought we would give it a try. We booked early as we were warned that the service does struggle when the establishment was busy. The decor is very appealing and does give off the authentic modern Japanese... More

My daughter and I came here for a treat to ourselves for Mother's Day. We loved this place. Great atmosphere, chic and intimate on a lunch time, lively on an evening. Whether its Sushi or Teppanyaki you are wanting you can't go wrong here. Not overly priced for a Japanese and good sized portions. The crispy squid was the best... More

So disappointed with this visit. A rare opportunity to spend time with a good friend, we were really looking forward to lunch, having had a good previous experience. We arrived and were ignored, attempts at eye contact failed. The restaurant was less than half full, every customer looked miserable as were the staff, the atmosphere was very poor. We were... More

Been here many times for midday lunch and had great value Bento boxes. Great choice with bowl of rice & miso soup. Excellent quality and happy to go here as often as I can.

Rather than eat in at our hotel we ventured out to an eaterie one of our colleagues had been to before and recommended. Yo-Ji did the job. Fresh sushi and sashimi with lovely tempura were served and promptly devoured. We all enjoyed the meal and for a Monday night, the restaurant was relatively busy, always a good sign.

The first time we went we were given a window seat which is ok if you’re out for a quiet ‘lovey’ night, but we moved to the seats in front of the teppanyaki grill. This is a great place to sit and watch the chef with high flames and appetizing aromas. This time they squeezed us in without a booking... More

The interior design is awesome, and raises expectations. Unfortunately the food didn't live up to these expectations. Although we enjoyed the sushi, the curry was not enjoyable at all. The service was slow also, which would have been forgiven had the food delivered on taste.
