“Good, but not exceptional”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2014

The sushi at Yohei is OK given the remoteness of Wanaka but not exceptional. In comparison with sushi in Japan, Yohei is fairly average, a little expensive at about $2 per piece, but better than sushi I've had in Melbourne and Sydney. The sushi I tried had been sitting in the display case for a while and the nori had gone soft and rubbery like plastic wrap, whereas the nori should be fresh and crisp. I was intrigued by the Cardrona sushi - inari sushi with crab on top resembling the Cardrona ski hills. Is it the best sushi in Wanaka? No, Sasanoki sushi is much superior.

“Great sushi on the go”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2014

We stopped for a quick lunch during a walk. Had sushi and udon noodles. Very nice indeed. There isn't much of a selection of sushi - tuna and salmon mostly in various shapes and forms, but it's fresh and tasty. Def going back.

“Best sushi in Wanaka”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2014 via mobile

Great fresh appetising food. My favourite place to visit in Wanaka on almost a daily basis. Love the rice balls. Lee you are an amazing host and remember almost all of your regulars names. The sushi and juice are great and the food from the menu is prepared so quickly and is exactly what you expect. Awesome job keep it up. Must visit again and again!

“Amazing sushi - great service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2013 via mobile

We went in here a couple of times during our visit for some sushi and some freshly squeezed juices. The sushi was amazing and he even offered to make us some more if wanted as we initially wanted some more salmon roll but we just went for another option and it was just as delicious. Great service well priced - we are def coming back next time
