After hearing the hype we decided to try Yamitsuki. The restaurant itself is very nice with extremely good service however there was nothing really special about the sushi itself unfortunately. I would go back but there are better places. Sorry guys

Always a great experience! The staff is always helpful, no matter what the request. The food is superb and the fact that I can watch them make it is wonderful because you know exactly what you eating. The complementary dumplings are just to die for, and their specials on Tuesday's for all pink plates are the best! I love sushi,... More

From Cape Town to Bedfordview just for sushi? - No to watch our grandson play rugby, and go with the parents for early lunch. From the tempura prawns and dim sum to salmon sashimi and roses, with angry crab, prawn and avocado handrolls plus others along the way - the quality, presentation and taste was excellent. Well worth the visit... More

Founded in 2000, Yamitsuki introduced the concept of Japanese style cuisine, presented to customers via a unique conveyor belt system. The experience was fun and exciting while the food was revolutionary. Yamitsuki became a market leader in sushi restaurants.

As our main focus, our sushi bar has the minimalistic traditional Japanese dishes offering timeless perfection, as well as modern American and European influenced sushi dishes.

Over time other influences such as Thai and Chinese were incorporated into the menu which led to the development of a fusion Asian menu, offering a Noodle, Teppanyaki and Dim Sum bar, with a variety of oriental soups, sweet and sour dishes and oriental curries.

Yamitsuki offers a stylish atmosphere with friendly staff providing our customers with a great place to unwind, relax and to enjoy their dining experience.

Yamitsuki is defined as a one stop sushi and oriental cuisine restaurant providing fast paced on-the-move lifestyles with the freshest sushi and a healthy meal. Our freshly prepared delicious food is delivered to our customers via sit-down, take away or delivery.

Our warm atmosphere and friendly service, combined with great value, offers an experience that becomes addictive.
