My wife is trying vegetarian eating lately; and we we're sure how we'd do at sushi. Fortunately, there are some options. I had a Vegetarian Roll, which has veggies inside a cucumber wrapper with a ginger sauce -- very good. My wife had a Vegetable tempura roll (which is richer). OK, we're not total Veggie -- I also had a... More

What a huge disappointment..! this place used to be great. Unfortunately it is under new ownership & just re-opened middle of June-2016. The new wait staff is inept & slow. had to ask for each re-fill of drinks. Slices of fish very small & thin. Too bad.. we used to come here every time through the area the food had... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Pismo and we always plan a night here whenever we visit! We always enjoy our time here and appreciate being able to choose between a teppan, sushi bar or restaurant experience, depending on our mood and guests. They offer a great range of food that is sure to please every kind of... More

My family came here for a graduation dinner right around sunset and the view was absolutely gorgeous. Even with our party of 12, everyone found something they liked on the menu. Some ordered teppan; others had sushi. Regardless, everyone enjoyed their meal. The best thing about our visit, however, was the chef who put on the show as he prepared... More

We have been here many many times and always have had a good meal. Unknown to many is that they have lunch specials with lunch prices which makes it even better.

This is a great sushi place, the sashimi was very good, it showed the quality of the products used. You can see the sushi being prepared with attention to detail. It was so good that, in 2 days, we ate there twice.

Went to Yanagi to celebrate 2 birthdays. Excellent service and food. Staff is very attentive. Great selection and the sushi was so yummy. Try the baked green mussel appetizer. They were great. Can't wait to go back.

We've been here for sushi and to experience the grill (Benihana style). Both were fun but I think personally I enjoyed the sushi more. They have a nice selection of rolls and sushi and everything we tried was good quality. They have some Japanese beer to try of course as well. It isn't your small local sushi restaurant, this is...

Fun place for birthdays! The food is prepared by the chef in front of you which is quite entertaining. It's good too. Many birthday celebrations were happening the evening we were there. We celebrated my 5 year old niece's birthday and she had so much fun. Highly recommended!
