“Always a safe bet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

Ok... So I agree that it's a chain restaurant established in a zillion cities around the world, with little cachet or even choice... but it's a safe bet... what you see is what you get, and you'll always be sure of the quality of the fish...

“Worst I ever had”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2012

This place should be ashamed of its sushi. Went there recently on my last trip to South Africa and found the sushi there horrible. Never ever again!

“Best tuna salad in town!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2011

The tuna salad is exceptionally good if you like fresh tuna in a salad. There is a good selection of sushi and the peking duck gets my second best on the menu.

“Quality and consistency with no hype.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2008

This is an excellent restaurant - I've eaten there something like five times a week for two months & it's consistently good. I've worked my way through most of the menu - instantaneous sushl on a conveyor belt or superb hot soups & stir frys served in about 3 minutes - it's all good. Try the Miso soup. The Yo Sushi chain is a good concept -quick, slmple , informal & high quality. It's a Brltish company but I prefer the Sandton operation because of the laid - back but professional & efficlent staff. There's none of the nauseatinq customer-services training course robot-speak that seems to pervade South African restaurants (& Yo Sushi in the UK) The food is backed up by Illy espresso, loose leaf green tea and cold (properly cold) beer.
It's a pity that the tourists & business brigade head straight for the bright lights of Sandton Square or the fairy-lit restaurants outside Village Walk Mall - because they're missing out on a quality establishment.
