“Quite an experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2014

My daughter is a real fan, but we have never ventured in. This Saturday we did make the big step and went for lunch. We briefly queued and the team at the door were brilliant. We were told how long the wait was, were given tasters and a run down of the new menu. We were seated before their estimated 10 minutes wait and served by attentive staff. The range of dishes was truly great and they happily made things not on the conveyor. We happily chatted and sampled the most attractively looking dishes. Despite the Saturday lunch rush we had a most relaxing meal and enjoyed almost everything. We particularly enjoyed the popcorn shrimps and the teriyaki beef. despite all the positives I am not sure if we will be back soon as the bill came to £36 for a lunch for two and I am not sure if this would be the best option in this price range.

“A bit fishy - not for the right reason!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2014

Food is good here, and the trip (for my daughters birthday) was an experience for the kids. However, the food fryer for the hot dishes (chicken katsu, tempura, etc.) is in the middle of the restaurant dining area and as a result me and my family came out of the restaurant with our clothes smelling strongly of fried food. This kind of spoilt the rest of the day as everywhere we went there was a whiff of chipshop....

Come on Yo Sushi - invest in an extractor fan!!

“Very Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2014

When we are in cambridge we try to call into Yo Sushi for lunch as you always receive a friendly welcome, the food is fresh, its clean and you do not feel ripped off! I like the idea of the water fountains so once you have paid for a glass of water the following times you refill are free.

“Average sushi”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2014

Visited recently and while it was ok (food seemed fresh), it was pretty average. They were supposed to be running a special in January, (all dishes UKP2.50), but in all, I did not feel I had value for money - came away still hungry after 3 dishes (4 small sushi rolls and some edamame) and tea and did not have much change from 10 pounds.

“Chicken in vegetarian dish”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

Having been a vegetarian for 24 years, I was very upset to realise that there seemed to be chicken in my vegetable gyoza. I asked the chef to check the ingredients so ensure it was not tofu/quorn and apparently these were not listed in the ingredients so it was clearly meat. Despite this, there was no apology from any members of staff and the remaining vegetable gyoza on the conveyor were not checked or removed. Very bad service and a very upsetting experience.
