I just finished with my second disappointing take-out sushi meal from Yuki. I decided to give them another try because I used to always be pleased with take-out sushi from Yuki. Now that I've been burned twice, I will not be back.
The only thing they got right was the edamame (how hard is that?) I also had Wakame (seaweed) salad, which was fine, but it came with julienned cucumbers, which were not fresh.
I ordered Tuna and Yellowtail sashimi (without rice) but I got nigiri (with rice) in my take-out box. I took one small bite of each and spit one out. Neither fish was fresh. The tuna was low-quality and both had the characteristic bad fishy taste of old fish.
I also had a "Yammy Yammy" roll, which is supposed to be "Deep fried Yellowtail, Sweet Shrimp, Salmon, Scallop, Crabmeat & Avocado with special sauce" according to Yuki's menu. The roll I received was a deep-fried lump of rice with a tiny piece of avocado and a small dab of seafood inside.
My second roll was the "White Dragon" roll. The White Dragon roll is supposed to be "Eel on a spicy Tuna roll wrapped in white seaweed with 2 special sauces on top". There was a very small amount of eel on top of my roll. I had to check to be sure some was there under the heavy sauces. There was such a small amount of spicy tuna buried in the rice that at first, I thought it was sriracha sauce rather than tuna. The roll was made almost entirely of rice and it was drowned in the two sauces. I'm guessing all the sauce was to hide the fact that it was mostly just rice.
I've had excellent sushi and mediocre sushi, and only a few times have I had sushi this bad. It's sad to see how bad the sushi at Yuki has gotten. I won't be wasting my money there again.
