“Good food, No service”
Reviewed July 11, 2014 via mobile

Had a nice meal for two here at lunchtime. It was pretty busy and we had to wait in the doorway but only for around ten minutes before being seated at the bar. Food was the usual Yo! fare - good variety, well presented, and tasty. We wanted something off the menu and pressed the service button. No one came. We waited and eventually something close to what we wanted from the menu came along the belt so we took that. We wanted a drink but seeing as we couldn't get anyone's attention we settled for the tap water available at every table. Funnily enough, after we had eaten our fill, we pressed the button again and someone was immediately at our table to give us the bill! We like the food so we'll probably go again, just wish the service was a bit better...

“Typical Japanese Sushi Bar”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

My daughter, wife and I enjoyed our lunch at this centrally located restaurant - next to the Market Square. The food was freshly prepared and tasted just as it was supposed to taste! I give it "average" however as it is so similar to every other Japanese sushi bar I have visited. Quite pricey and what let this one down a bit was the service that was pretty slow and the staff showed limited interest. Moreover there was a noticeable lack of knowledge from the staff as to what was on the menu. Whenever we asked if they had a particular dish - something simple nothing out of the ordinary - the reply was always "I'll just check" and in 5 minutes the answer came back that they hadn't. Showed a lack of basic training. Having said that we did enjoy our healthy, fresh food.

“Pricey sushi”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

Pretty pricey sushi unless you come in on Blue Monday, when every dish costs 2.5 pounds. Good quality food overall.

“Very good service.”
Reviewed June 30, 2014 via mobile

I particularly liked the fact that all the food is prepared in front of you, so you can see how it looks before you order it. Maybe not the best sushi available but in no manner did it reach the realms of best-to-avoid .

“My favorite ever!!”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

Visited here many times with family and the food is delicious. Particularly the Crunchy Prawn ISO, absolutely to die for. The katsu looks fantastic too, but I have never tried hot food from Yo! before.
It is pretty pricey if you don't keep an eye on how many bowls you take, if you're anything like me and my mum you'll keep wanting more and before you know it the bill adds up. However I can understand this as good sushi is pretty hard to find and it is definitely worth it.
The atmosphere is always nice, with lovely staff. Would recommend any day!
