good sushi and good service

we arrived at 4:30 PM just when the place opened. Service was very good -- food came quickly. We had several of the Nantucket special sushis -- Mitchell, Ocean, and the daily special. All were tasty and well made. Miso soup and seaweed salad were also good. Only criticism -- no brewed tea... read more

The sushi here is good, but it is the lunch entrees that are the star. The Chicken Ramen and the Shrimp Tempura are both among my favorites. Very filling and hearty. I always leave Yoshi's glad that I ate there.

We read about this restaurant an decided to give it a try; we were not disappointed. It has a quaint dining room. We had the Shrimp Tempura Dinner - the tempura was light. Our friends had the Sashimi Dinner which looked colorful and fresh. To top it off you are even able to bring your own bottle.

Our lunch experience was great. We had two lunch specials plus sashimi and the waiter/manager took great care of us. Great spot!

Spent a night over on the island and were looking for something for dinner. Couldn't decide - had been on a business trip in Boston and were used to eating big every night on the expense account. Nantucket is definitely a target-rich environment if you're looking for a fine-dining experience, but after a week or so of that, we had... More

We come here every year. It's a must-go for their lunch specials. The food is fantastic, unique, and delicious. It's a small place, with two outdoor tables, so be aware that it won't be a quiet experience if the place is packed. And it usually is, because it's a great place to eat.

Our family has lived in Tokyo for 6 years, and my wife is Japanese, so we came to Sushi by Yoshi for a familiar meal. The menu offers a greater variety of real Japanese cuisine than many sushi shops: Tokyo-style ramen, curry-rice, udon and soba dishes, as well as a nice assortment of sushi (maki and nigiri). The sushi chef... More
