“Asian Fusion in Newburgh”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

An institution for decades, this old Asian fusion stalwart is solid and reliable.

with a wide range of small plates, mains and sushi, Yobo has something for everyone. A small but decent sake and Asian beer selection rounds out the experience. the eager and helpful staff is attentive and on point.

The ambiance is not what you would expect in the unassuming location. Once inside there is a small man made stream of water flowing through the dining area. traditional Asian artwork and wood abound along with a soothing background soundtrack.

the dim sum is excellent and the sushi is fresh. there are some very nice dishes including the Korean BBQ plate which is very good. house made Kimchi is a MUST TRY. Drinks are "stiff" so be careful.

The Clincher on the deal are reasonable prices for high quality area food and service.

Check this place out if you have the opportunity. i think you will be pleased.

PS. best enjoyed in a small group.

“Fun decor but terrible food and experience”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

Maybe they try to do too many cuisines. They don't get any of them right. The Korean chapchae wasn't made with chapchae noodles but with pad Thai noodles. The sauces all tasted more like Chinese take-out, and the salmon in the maki rolls was chopped up bits and mushy.

To top it all off, there was a business conference in the next room, separated by a partition but not fully closed off. All through dinner we listened to a speaker talking loudly about bipolar disorder. It was nearly impossible to have our own conversation.

“Consistent Quality”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

My husband loves sushi and finding this place is like finding a gold mine. He says the sushi is the same every single visit. While I don't enjoy sushi, I have gotten the sesame chicken multiple times and is made exactly the same way every time. The food does not upset my stomach like some Chinese/Japanese places in the area. I will say though, that the décor needs to be updated and they need to find a new CD to play (we can almost count how many times we will hear one song during our visit). Otherwise this is a great restaurant!

“Perennial Favorite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I do a Duck Orange, or the Wai Sio Duck, which I find excellent, and you can count on it. they also make the best Crab Rangoon of any place I go. My guests did a variety of dishes, all very much enjoyed.

Yobo is consistently good, and has been on my list for over 30 years
