“Will go back again soon!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

We live close by and decided to give Yoshiya a try on a recent Friday evening. A very serene and relaxing atmosphere, with soft music in the backround, perfect after a hectic week of Christmas shopping. My husband and I shared the sushi and sashima combo, with miso soup and a salad. Very fresh and beautifully presented. We also ordered the Dancing dragon roll, Spicy tuna, mango inside, shrimp on the top with spicy mayo, eel sauce- ohh so good! Great combination of flavors. Even though we were full, we had to try their fried cheesecake, hard to explain, but a light, not greasy, crisp to the outside, and soft and creamy cheesecake filling..I will have to make sure I save room for that every time we go. The restaurant serves several types of Japanese beer and wine by the glass was a bargain at $3.95 for Woodbridge pinot grigio. We're already making plans to go back in a few days with our son.

“Excellent food and value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

I took my nieces to Yoshiya on Saturday for lunch. The owners are a friendly couple that are service oriented. We ordered Sushi and Bento Boxes for lunch. The sushi was presented nicely and fresh with plenty of wasabi and ginger. The Bento Boxes are a real deal, nice salad, six california rolls, tempura shrimp and vegitables and the main course. We had the beef and chicken which were tasty and cooked well. For $9 a real deal for lunch. I highly recommend it.

“Nice place for a sit-down meal; great for carry-out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

It's hard to find a place to eat in the Montgomery Village area that has a nice atmosphere. Yoshiya's interior is a surprise considering its location in a strip center anchored by McDonald's and Subway. It's pretty, roomy, and quiet (which is again a wonderful treat compared to all the chain restaurants with their deafening noise). The staff is very attentive. The food is excellent, whether you go for the creative and lovely rolls, the fresh sashimi, or some of their Japanese cuisine like tempura, teriyaki or katsu. It's pricey compared to the Chinese takeout next door, but then the ingredients are completely different. Still there are bargains to be had... scattered among $13 rolls and $3-6 rolls (tempura sweet potato! yum!).

If you like Japanese food, give it a try!
If you think all Japanese food is raw fish, come to Yoshiya to sample their non-sushi dishes.

“Great Sushi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

Have been to Yoshiya 5 or 6 times and the sushi and sashimi is always very fresh (not always the case, even in nicer places). An extensive menu. Also excellent tempura. Even for those who do not enjoy sushi a number of rolls are available. My wife loves the tempura lobster roll and the Stacia Roll (shrimp tempura with snow crab, steamed shrimp with avocado and spicy mayo!)
