“Express sushi”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

I have had sushi at YO before and to be honest what I like about it is that I can just sit and start eating almost immediately. Service was quick even on a busy night. The sushi was decent but definitely not the best I've had. The prices also were relatively fair.

All in all it was a decent experience

“We all enjoyed our first ever visit to a Yo Sushi :)”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

it was our first ever visit to a Sushi Bar and we were apprehensive after reading the reviews on here ; however we all enjoyed it. We went early on a Sunday evening and it was quite busy . The staff were friendly and helpful and explained what we had to do . Our teenagers loved the novelty of picking the food off the conveyor belt . My only moan would be the twice we ordered hot food dishes we had to ask again after about 20 minutes - both times they seemed to have forgotten about our orders as were serving hot dishes to others around us much quicker !!! NIce to be able try lots of different foods we hadnt ever had before.

“Soulless”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

We usually really like Yo Sushi and were thrilled to see this one open in Gunwharf quays... The usual buzz that you can find at YoSushi's is completely lost here... The belt is typically very empty and the plates on it are often the basic green beans, salad or desserts... things that come readily packaged... all sushi and maki that require some prep seem not to make it on the belt. We have visited this YoSushi several times and it really seems that only when, who I think is the regional manager is in the restaurant, the place seems to run smoothly. When we visit when an another manager is present the staff seems to be very laid-back and not focused on the task at hand. If you like YoSushi because of the speedy service and freshness then this is not the Yo! for you... Try Guildford or Southampton instead.

“Fun!”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

It's fun to eat here, but can be expensive as the plates pile up! Most of the dishes are pretty healthy and low in fat. The staff are usually friendly and enjoy a joke. However, I think the floor could do with a really good clean as it feels greasy and slightly unsafe.

Reviewed September 24, 2012

If you like sushi, pop in any time of the day and enjoy a nice variety of hot or cold dishes. Not cheap but at least you eat well. friendly staff.
