Just did the take-out. Ordered the Sushi Deluxe - comes with 11 pieces and a spicy tuna roll. Service was very good; Sushi was fresh and had good taste......but no bargains here. Almost $30 by itself - not even a small salad included.

Arrived at the restaurant at 7,30, only another table was occupied by two people. Two japanese cooks were very busy behind the bench preparing food. We placed our order and we started our wait. 40 minutes later we were still waiting. We complained with our waitress, the reply was: we have a lot of orders for take away. Finally our food came. Unacceptable.
The quality of the food is good, prices on the high side, service is decent, organization of the activity simply inefficient. Priority is given to the take away orders, the restaurant customers are served when they finish packing boxes for people who placed telephone orders. It should be the other way around.
Do not recommend. Only for take away.

The best sushi around. I have been coming here since 1997 and it is by far the best Japanese restaurant on the east coast. Its always a pleasure.

we live in branford, went for the first time to celebrate a double birthday, reviews were so good. there were only a couple of people in the restaurant when we arrived. 3 of us got our order & despite trying to eat slowly waiting for the 4th person to receive their dinner, it didn't come. i finally got up to flag down the waitress asking where was the order, she said it had just come up. it should not have taken so long for 1 dish, when 3 others of same caliber came sooner. the butternut soup was just ok. needless to say, despite the sushi being tasty, it ruined our nice family bd dinner together. no real apology either. would not rec when other great sushi can be found closeby.

Yooki Yama is very authentic, and I've never been disappointed after a half dozen visits. They have some interesting specials, some exceptionally hot (spicy) rolls, (I mean really really hot) and the service is very good. Compared to the flashy 9East right down the street, the menu is a bit lacking, but all items are exceptionally fresh and they seem to have a loyal following.
