“The cashier hates her job”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2012

You order up front and pick up your food when your number is called. They have a tip jar but with the attitude of the cashier being as it always is we never tip. You can tell she is extremely unhappy about something, never a smile, a thank you, nothing but rudeness. As for the food, it is alright. Asaka on Biltmore Ave is much better and cheaper, and the staff there are always nice, always. Take your chances with this one!

“Great food but the place itself looks like a dump.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2012

On my first visit to Yoshida's, I was very surprised by the appearance of the interior of the building. It is very run down and shabby looking. That said, the place was packed and we had to wait to be seated.

The food was great. We had huge portions, which I like, and a variety of sauces to supplement the food.

I also visited another hibachi restaurant in Asheville and noticed they added huge blobs of butter to every single thing they cooked. I didn't notice that so much at Yoshida's. Also, we got way more food here than the other place.

The atmosphere isn't anything to write home about but the food was good.
