About
We are a lively, Japanese sushi bar, using maximum local produce and proposing new taste combinations. We are famous for our vegan options but also for respect towards classics. In accordance with Japanese tradition, we serve the most delicious and affordable sushi, prepared with fresh local and seasonal ingredients. Having that in mind, we do not import tuna or other frozen fish from the Pacific Ocean, instead, we have introduced plenty of local fish (i.e. eel, trout) and vegetables to create our unique style, merging Japanese tradition with Polish creativity. Our sushi served right after being prepared to ensure the best taste and temperature. Be careful we put a lot of our hearts into it.

The sushi was absolutely delicious and the atmosphere in the restaurant was very nice. It is quite a small place so it might be a good idea to make a reservation beforehand. We were seated by the bar/preparation station and it was very nice as...we could talk with the chef and listen to his suggestions. Everything was made in front of us and, and all of the sushi was very unique, unlike anything I’ve ever had. They also had a very good vegetarian selection. When we received the bill, we didn’t realize until after we had paid and left the restaurant that we had received the wrong bill and actually ended up paying more than twice the amount we should have. We didn’t end up going back to sort it out as it was our first night in Poland and we weren’t sure if it was a tax rule we just hadn’t understood, and the restaurant was very busy so we didn’t want to disturb anymore. But definitely look up for that and learn from our mistake as that was quite a bummer.More

A place where you’d love to come back. Exquisite and surprising tastes, in this very positive way. Like you wouldn’t have imagined the ingredients combination. Always super fresh! Sometimes it’s worth making a reservation if you wanna make sure to get the spot in a...cozy sushi place located in my favourite part of town. Kazimierz. The bar area is the best! I keep coming back, alone or with friends, especially for “torciki” - these are the salmon cakes and also the ones with aubergine&avocado, both simply delicious! I can’t decide which one I’d recommend more. Still, other sushi sets are amazing too, so let yourself be surprised with the omakase choice. Ahhh and the new discovery for me - suimono, the soup you must try one day! My friends, after visiting Youmiko, keep on saying - no other sushi will satisfy my taste buds! And there’s something about it! What’s more people working there are super nice and friendly. So if you are still not convinced - have a look at the wine list!More

I was seated at the bar, and I should have said, "No thank you" and left. The bar was so high that I could not comfortably place my book on it to read while I ate. It was also along the main path into the...restaurant and the servers had to pass by every time they delivered food to the tables. I was jostled the whole time I was there. The sushi was absolutely nothing special, although it is clear that the sushi chef fancies himself an artist. The last tray of sushi I received was disgusting and I left most of it.More

Perfect place for sushi lovers wanting to experience original and interesting taste of modern fusion sushi and japanese cuisine. Very cosy and great for couples but can easly accomodate larger groups (we were party of five). Everything is done from scratch and if you sit...at the bar you can watch your meal being prepared. Lots of vegan choices, excellent wine and sake. Great service. Cool vibe and friendly atmosphere.More

A tiny place serving very creative and atypical sushi that never disappoints. I recommend their omakase (tasting menu) which is a mix of fish and vegan courses that is very creative and delicious. Their food is paired only with natural wines and pure sake. Service...is great. I always recommend Youmiko to visitors because I know they will never be disappointed! I recommend booking ahead because it’s a very popular place!More

The sushi was really good and would consider takeaway here another time. Seating was awful, small and crowded with white shower curtains separating the tables. Not cozy.

Great Japanese restaurant, it’s hard to find restaurants who have fresh ingredients and well prepared, and they did not disappoint. The only small issue for me was the space of the place, you get the feeling you are too close to other tables and basically...you are eating next to everyone. With out that in mind, whenever I feel like having Japanese food, will definitely go there.More

This restaurant claims to serve sushi, and guest ratings indicate a great experience. In conclusion, neither “sushi” chefs of Youmiko nor the average guest appear to know what sushi is. We have encountered “creative sushi” several places, but never anything this terrible. It’s a mystery...how ratings can get so high on TripAdvisor, and how deep I had to dig in previous reviews to find some truth.More
