Good Selection of Authentic Japanese Dishes

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... read 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.

Sushi by Yoshi is definitely my favorite place for sushi on Nantucket. Nantucket Ocean roll is to die for :)

Excellent choice of sushi options and oh so fresh! This is a busy, popular spot with 6-8 small tables. Lots of carry out. Don't miss it if you like sushi. Right in downtown and a great option for carry out if you want an alternative to the expensive restaurants.

If you're looking for something that's better than the pre-made grocery store sushi on Nantucket, you don't have a ton of options. Sushi by Yoshi is your more mid-level choice. The sushi is ok -- not amazing, but it's certainly serviceable and can hit the sushi spot. Service is never that great, but this last time was laughably bad. The... More

We have been coming to Nantucket for 15 consecutive years as out kifs grew up. We usually eat in... Last summer was the first time we had a really bad experience where they forgot our dinners and needed our table. The food is great by the way, but the service has become worse than terrible. This year we had the... More

On a cold night, I thought I'd order some tempura udon to get warm. For anyone expecting the thick, succulent noodle that udon is--think again. This was a watery, flavorless dish with noodles that we reminiscent of overcooked spaghetti. The soup base was unlike any other udon dish I'd ever had--and NEVER hope to have again. Sushi was ok, but... More

We thought sushi and BYO sounded like a nice night. This place is mostly takeout-with about 7 tables and the sushi bar. We sat at the sushi bar. You cannot see the sushi being made-and the chef did not look up or around. The other staff must have been having a bad night-they were indifferent and almost seemed like they... More

You can get sushi cheaper on the mainland but the sushi was very fresh and delicious. A basic tuna roll was $11 (which you can get for $6 anywhere else) but again the tuna was very fresh. Yoshi knows what he is doing. We enjoyed it so much we went there twice during our stay.
