The fish eggs are amazing, fresh,large and delectable. We just moved here from Indianapolis, and Yellow fin out performed anything we've tasted in the city. This is now a weekly must do for us, as the batter dipped cream cheese sushi roll (about the only Americanized option on the list, but no complaint) makes all others look like amateurs by... More

It got great reviews on urban spoon, so I was excited to try it. My first order was a pick-up and they made my Philadelphia roll with COOKED WHITE TUNA instead of salmon.

Loved the sashimi, the sushi, and the seaweed salad. Quality is excellent. Service was fast, and they gave us free dessert and some free sushi sampler. Considering the location, out of the way, it is a place I'd return to.

You are not going to bump into this place randomly as it is off the beaten track. I found this place with an iPhone app while visiting Champaign and it is now a regular stop for me when passing through. This is a very good mom and pop shop with lots of native Japanese eating there (always a good sign... More

Yellow Fin is a very nice place to eat. I enjoyed spicy tuna sushi and a bowl of vegetable udon. The atmosphere is very nice and the price is just right.

The food is o.k. - the prices are just not justified by any means.

What a pleasant surprise! And I thought I would be banished from Japanese food I could enjoy forever, once moving here. I am glad for Yellowfin.
