We usually go for the half price menuwhich is offered Monday -Friday 5pm-7pm. It's decent. It includes some appetizers, sushi rolls and such. By no means does it begin to cover their expansive menu. The crab dip is wonderful. The firecracker shrimp is delicious although the spiciness varies visit to visit. The satay appetizers are good, nice grill flavor. Our 15 month old son loved the bahn minis, minus the pickled vegetables and spicy mayo. He didn't even eat the bread really, just the pork. We had to order a second round for him, meat only and they even chopped it up in bite size pieces for him. Great service. Yosake is on the 2nd floor and the stairs are steep. There is an elevator around the back that most don't know about off of dock street, feel free to use it if you want. It brings you out at the restrooms. Just follow the hallway around and you will end up in the dining area and the hostess will seat you. ENJOY!

I have been to Yo Sake several times over recent years, and have never been disappointed. This visit was no exception. The menu offers something for all taste preferences, from spicy, to sushi, to grilled. While everything was good for our group of five, the highlight was dessert. They have yummy peanut butter wontons dipped in chocolate and served with coconut ice cream. I love coconut ice cream and my husband loves those warm peanut butter wontons. What a wonderful ending to our meal.

Downtown Wilmington is full of fun for our Fri/Sat nights out downtown. Yosake has great sushi and great service. We dine here occasionally whether its just the two of us or out on the town with friends. You will not be disappointed!

I went to Yo Sake for the half price sushi from 5-7. The firecracker shrimp was definitely my favorite. It's worth going just for that. Everything else was not very exciting. I got the spicy tuna role, which was tiny and looked like sushi from a grocery store. However, it was cheaper than sushi from a grocery store, so that was something. My husband got the crunchy tuna roll, and like other reviewers have stated, it really is just a tuna roll with breadcrumbs on top. We also got the sashimi, which was okay, but the imitation crab was a turn off. Hopefully, the full price items are better quality, and larger, since the half-price sushi definitely wasn't worth more than the $4/roll that we paid for it. The building is nice, but I do agree that the giant, anime characters are a little creepy and the service was good.

Ordered the farmhouse roll. Highly recommend. Not a lot of interesting sushi options out there generally for a vegetarian, well this roll got my attention. Great combination of fresh ingredients wrapped in delicate avocado topped with a sweet and heat light sauce. So good.....
