My friend brought me here for lunch. I was thrilled to find great sushi this close to home. Yoshi was funny, friendly and accomodating. Between my friend and I we had several rolls, edemame, and miso. Everything was wonderful but the eel and the Alaskan roll were my favorite. The miso was excellent as well. I will definitely be back!... More

Great food in a nice quiet atmosphere. The salmon I had was delicious. Not sure I've ever had better. Lots of Sushi choices. Didn't expect to find such good Japanese fare in the west!

This tiny restaurant serves wonderful Japanese food. The sushi was fresh and delicious. The tempura is light and piping hot. The beef teriyaki is an entire steak grilled to perfection. This place is so good that we went back three times in a week!

Located in Village of Oak Creek across from Oak Creek Factory Outlets. They are open for lunch and dinner. My favorite is the Beef Bowl – very tasty beef with sauce and vegetables served over rice. Comes with miso soup.

Who thought I would have to go to Sedona to experience Great Japanese food. The Spicy tuna salad was great, all the rolls were delicious and this restaurant was very reasonably priced. Go early because when Yoshi the sushi master is ready to go the restaurant closes.

Stopped in there for lunch, meal was excellent overall, and service as well, since I was alone, I sat right up front at the Sushi Bar

I've heard of this restaurant for years notoriously known for the ridged & strict owner and chef. Luckily, he ignored us. The food was out of this world delicious, prepared expertly and presented creatively. Its no wonder this hole-in-the-wall joint is still open. The server was fast and efficient, and knew most of the customers by name. Definitely a local... More

Don`t expect a large menu to choose from but get ready for some real treats like yellow tale hamaki, grilled to perfection or unagi sushi that`s finger licking good. Best miso soup and great tempura. This is the real deal, no frills or creative rolls but decent Japanese food made by the owner Yoshi. This is a locals favorite!

We had the Tempura Udon. It was fine for me, less so for my Japanese SO. The restaurant is a bit far from the central area of Sedona, but going down 179 is great for seeing the Bell, Cathedral and Courthouse rock formations.
