One of the things I love the most about the Bay Area is that you can find good food from around the world. But what makes it so awesome, is that you can also find AMAZING food from around the world.

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

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.
