You can't beat the price during the week because its half off. But, inside is kind of grindy :( The bathrooms need to be seriously cleaned.

Awesome fresh sushi. I don't know where they get their fish but is is unbelievably fresh. Service is ok, but offset by the food.

Décor is a lot to be desired but the food is fresh and great. Expect to wait especially if you have a big party of six or more.

My boyfriend and I absolutely love this place! We come here all the time! I am not a fan of sushi, but my boyfriend loves it. And he says the sushi here is out of this world. It's his favorite place to get sushi from. And their hibachi is excellent. This is probably the best hibachi place that I have... More

Pros:This place has great value! The half off sushi special (Mon-Thurs) are of special note. While I initially enjoyed the hibachi show, I think the cooks get bored after a while.

Oh my U-Yee Sushi, how we see each other very often. Well, I used to frequent this establishment a lot a few years ago, and I still try to come here whenever I have a chance for my cheap sushi-fix. I have never had a bad time at this place. I can honestly say I have brought many people here... More

I have been eating at U-Yee for 15 years. Food is always consistent and much much better than any chain restaurants. I gave it four stars because the service can be a bit antiquated but overall I highly recommend it.
