“Horrible service and drinks; food so so”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

This restaurant is in Yucca Valley at the Travel Lodge. Six of us went to dinner. The service was awful - slow and inattentive. The mixed drinks were awful. A featured drink was a Mai Tai; it looked and tasted like orange Kool-Aid. The room was warm and stuffy. Two of us had teriyaki chicken; it was luke warm. The fried rice was served after we'd finished our dinner. The waitress couldn't figure out why we didn't want it. The only good things we had were the pot stickers and the tempura. We won't be back.

“Good sushi in a surprising location”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

I stayed in the Yucca Valley Travelodge Hotel and was looking for a convenient restaurant to eat at the night we arrived. Since we were arriving a bit late in the evening we wanted something close and yummy. Right on the hotel grounds is Kimi Grill. Now you might think, sushi in the dessert at a travelodge is a bit scary at first (i know I did) but after checking all the reviews it looked promising. The sushi was good and fresh. They was even a little bit of a wait for a table. Some people were there on dates and it had cute decor. Dress was casual service was good. I would eat there again next time I go to Yucca Valley/Joshua Tree.
