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

Went to this restaurant based off of a recommendation from an employee of the hotel we were staying at. We were told the Sushi chef would be the highlight of our meal (that he was!). There was a large group of us (8) and we all ordered sushi and a few appetizers. Having traveled to many places I would rate... 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.

Based on the rating on this site we went out of our way to this place and it was poor. The staff were very friendly, but... the hamachi kama was underseasoned and overcooked (dry); in the tempura maki the shrimp was soggy; the bonito (touted as one of the best fish that night) was flavorless; the green salad was wet...
