The decor and the service here was good, actually the service was very good, but the sushi was just not good. We ordered Nigiri - Sake and Maguro, both were pretty flavorless and although they didn't seem bad they just didn't seem very fresh. We had a salmon and avo roll and it was also just flavorless, we also ordered... More

The menu is ripe with suggestively titled dishes, and the food delivers its sensual promises. We love going here for a quiet evening of tasty Japanese treats. Hands down, the best Japanese restaurant in a neighborhood full of them.

I've been going to Yakko for years. The staff is very fun and friendly, and pride themselves on a family friendly environment. Since Leon, the son, has taken over, he has done a great job of improving the menu and the quality of presentation.

Their sushi isn't very good but the rest of their menu is fine. Prices are reasonable. The dining area needs upgrades.
