We bought a groupon voucher which included Chicken Gyoza to start followed by Katsu curry and a drink. Really lovely food and the staff are great. Will definitely return :)

High quality ingredients and large portions. Hamachi Nigiri was especially nice, melt in the mouth. Will never visit Yo Sushi again! Would go back just for the Ramen - so flavourful.

Some of the best sushi we've had and we've had a lot of sushi. The grilled nigiri combo board was out of this world - new on the menu since the last time we came. Highly recommend! The warm sake is also delicious
