Best Japanese Food in Brandon

My favorite Japanese place in town. The service is always friendly and the food is always delicious! I've only ever gotten take out, but I've tried multiple dishes. Sukiyaki and spicy salmon rolls are my favorites. I'd like to go in for a sit down meal and try their ramen some day.

Typical Japanese style restaurant with good service and food but needs to be updated. Not that crowded the night we went for a birthday celebration and the service still seemed a little slow. The waitstaff seemed to be more focused on group conversation in the kitchen than serving customers. We will try again with higher expectations.

Me and my wife Nataliia'cim visited this place today at 5:30 pm and had a delightful sushi dinner. Over the years , We've eaten in a lot of other sushi places spanning from hawaii to california to all the way to florida and i strongly believe that Yokohama has offered us the freshest and best cut varieties of fish in...

Beginning to end you feel the warmth and love of the staff. My favorite are the white tuna sashimi and the great rolls. Very kid friendly, a fav is the Ramune sodas.

Yokohama has a very authentic Japanese feel to it. The interior decoration appears legit, the sushi is well-prepared, and the overall experience is consistently very good. My only complaint, and it's not their fault at all, the stupid bar next door allows smoking and some of it seeps through the walls and into Yokohama. It's really unfortunate, but I forget... More

Honestly, I was hoping and praying that I didn't get food poisoning. This was the worst sashimi and sushi I have ever had, you are better off getting it at the grocery store. The manager was nice but nice doesn't make the food quality better and when you are messing around with raw fish you really need to be careful.... More

The service here was perfect! I truly felt welcomed. However, the food was just OK. Pork dumplings, miso soup, and chicken teriyaki were good, but the hibachi, the sushi rolls, and the shrimp fried rice all left more to be desired. Probably won't return...

My wife and I just love to go here, whether for a special occasion, or just a quite date night. We are always warmly welcomed. My wife loves their Tempura Vegetables. I generally go for one of their beef dinners (Negimaki or Sukiyaki), with soup and salad. We ordered spring rolls last night for an appetizer. Our dinner was so... More

We go out to sushi places A LOT (my fiance is Japanese) and this is by far the best place we have been to. The food is authentic and traditional. And they are the only place that I can find that has a garlic tuna roll (delicious!). The waitress/chef know us and always chat with us. They are very sweet... More
