Food is good but not exceptional, Lots of variety on the menu, Very friendly staff. It is a very small cramped place though.

“Works of art”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

All fish is wonderfully fresh, but the mackerel (all kinds) and white tuna are just out of this world. Many Japanese appetizers that cannot be had anywhere else, at reasonable prices. Beautiful presentation. The chirashi rice platter is a work of art!
On the flip side, the restaurant is very small and popular, so you need to make reservations. Service can be slow even though they seem to have enough wait staff for its size.

“For you sushi lovers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

This Japanese sushi restaurant is a hole in wall in Vienna. The place is too small accommodate all its patrons so make sure before heading out here that you call ahead to make reservations.
What makes this place stands out are the offerings in the menu. Aside from the run of the mill items that you see on the menu they have original creations. The chirashi stood out because of the its presentation. They have salmon salad which I think is good as well.

Happy hour is from 5-630pm.
Parking is a headache if you come during peak dining hours, they have a back lot which can only accommodate like 6-7 compact cars.Other than that its street parking.

The place is pricey so don't expect your food to come cheap. Typical bill for 2 would run you up to $65.00 excluding taxes and tip.

Check it out and see if its to your liking.

“Great Chirashi !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

I was looking at a review of another Japanese restaurant near by and the reviewer mentioned Sushi Yoshi as his regular Japanese place. This got me curious so I started looking at the Sushi Yoshi on Yelp and then their official website. The photos of all their sushi look so good! And then this bit on the "About Us" page got me even more intrigued:

"Chef Yasu was trained in classic French cuisine and worked at Le Gavroche, a Michelin 3 star restaurant in London, for many years. He left Le Gavroche to accept the position of chef at the British Embassy in Washington, D.C., where he worked for more than 10 years. Chef Yasu now works with Chef Yoshi at the sushi bar, but sometimes he can't resist the urge to get in the kitchen and create some of his favorite French and European dishes."

I decided I must try this place .... even if it meant cheating on our regular Japanese place, Tachibana. Sorry T! A girl's gotta have a little variety -- it's the spice of life! The space is rather small but we managed to get a couple of tables for a late Saturday lunch. Our party was 7 so we had to be split up. It was fine. All the main dishes come with a miso soup and salad. Loved the dressing! I shared a Sushi platter for 2 with my cousin and ordered the eel on rice for my daughter. Everything was great! The sushi was so yummy! There were 30 pieces of sushi and we could not finish it. Really wanted to try the dessert but just couldn't eat another bite. Will have to come back for the dessert next time.

So glad to find another Japanese place that's decent around here. (Closed on Mondays Lunch)
