Close to mom's home cooking – I have eaten homemade Japanese food since I was in the womb!! I have not eaten the sashimi at this restaurant, but everything that I have eaten has been very similar to anything and everything my mom has made. I go to Sushi Yoshi whenever I get the hankering for "nihonshoku" (Japanese food) since she lives back in Japan! Go during lunch and get the lunch special! It's tasty, changes from day to day and feeds two!!
Surreal Dining Experience – It took over an hour for our sushi and tables seated after us got their sushi before we did. The food was horrible; the spider roll and eel were cold and we lost our appetite after the waitress came to the table, holding back tears after being fired. A well-run business would either wait until the end of a shift or make the staff leave immediately. We complained about the food and management never came out to apologize, though they did relay that they would charge us only for what we ate. This ended up meaning that we were charged for a whole roll even if we only ate two pieces. By then, we just wanted to leave. I recommend avoiding this place at all costs. If you must go, pack a picnic basket, as they apparrently can't handle preparing food unless the restaurant is half-empty.
up and down – when i go to sushi yoshi it's like a hit or miss. most recently i went for dinner and sat at the sushi bar, and i quite enjoyed it. the fish was above average, and the chefs were japanese (a big plus in my book - at least i can chat it up with them). however, the previous time i went i ordered kitsune udon. the age (fried thing) in the udon was, get this, the inari-zushi skin. i couldn't believe they did that. as you can imagine, that ruined the taste of the soup, and i was pretty pissed. oh well, like i said, hit or miss.
It's not New York, BUT... – I was impressed by the atmosphere in this Chapel Hill House of Fish, especially by the sans-shoe tatami room. My only criticism is a lack of creativity and selection in the Sushi department. However, this is a great place to get some solid staples at an incredible value.
ITS THE BEST!!! – I live a good deal away from this resturant, yet i live it. It has to be one of my favorite resturants ever. The food is the best around. The sushi is superb. I have had sushi from many different places and have not found any that is as good and fresh as here. Sushi-Yoshi was the resturant that got me to like sushi. I had never had it until I came here with a friend. He ordered some and I am one who will try anything at least once, so I had some. It was excelent and I have loved it since. The sushi is not the only food that is good. I have not had enough visits to tried everything on the menu, but what I've tried I loved. This resturant has to be the greatest Japanese resturant on the east coast, if not in the whole USA.
Better Than in Japan! – This is a place that not only provides economical yet quality dishes, a warm casual atmosphere, and a satisfying dining experience. Greeted by friendly staff at the door, you have the choice of the sushi bar, a booth, or a traditional "Tatami" room. An extensive menu also leaves you wanting a little of everything. At the bar, there are skilled and personable chefs eager to provide you with the freshest, ornately arranged sushi. There are often specials offered that leave your taste buds tingling with delight, a full stomach, AND a full wallet. If you know fresh, professionally made sushi, you know this is the place to be.
Alway's welcome – A visit to Sushi-Yoshi is like visitng a friend. I have been dining there now for over 6 years and the food and quality of service remains the same. Good and better yet! I would recommend this establishment to both friends and visitors.
