“Amateur food served by average staff”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012 via mobile

Well below average food that bears little resemblance to Japanese food. Poor quality ingredients, poor presentation. Good ambience but very small dining room makes it a little claustrophobic. Needs very serious improvement to deserve what it charges. Certainly not good value for money.

“We LOVE Sushi by Yoshi!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

As seasonal residents, Sushi by Yoshi is our summer staple. We usually take out each week and are never EVER disappointed! All of the staff are extremely professional and pleasant, no matter how busy their little restaurant gets (and it can get very busy, though never at the cost of the quality of food or service). The food is fresh, delicious, and authentic--you can see it being prepared behind the counter as the orders come in. The sashimi is some of the best we have had anywhere and is always fresh and presented beautifully. Our favorites include the Rhoda roll and sweet potato tempura roll--a seasonal special delight. You cannot miss with Sushi by Yoshi! It is our favorite on island, and when we go home for the season, we weep--really, we do!

“Long wait for average sushi”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012 via mobile

I was sort of disappointed after dining here and reading all of the good reviews. We waited a very long time to get in (not faulting them for that) but when we finally sat down and ate, the sushi was very warm, which kind of bothered me. I suspect that this was due to the extremely warm conditions in the kitchen area. I have no doubt that the fish was fresh, but overall, it was just average sushi. Nothing special here. Also, the place is very small and cramped and not the cleanest establishment by far. I would still say that you should go here if you have a sushi craving, just adjust your expectations accordingly.

“Lovely Place!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

This is the most adorable little quaint Japanese place that there is. This place prides itself on being the island's only Japanese take out, and it's and easy walk from the center of busy main street. And talk about good Sushi!!! IT'S DELICIOUS!! This place is the best takeout in town, and is certainly not to be missed.
