Most authentic in Atlanta. Sushi Yoko is the most authentic restaurant we have found based on our numerous trips to Japan. Tomo-san is an excellent host and chef. The staff is very friendly and helpful in describing the new menu items, which change periodically, leading to new eating adventures. Fish freshness and variety is excellent and supremely prepared. We look forward to visiting Sushi Yoko weekly.
They try to serve authentic Japanese food...Food is somewhat OK, right below average. When I ordered food, grilled fish came out underdone, and nikujaga came out way too soupy.
On the top of that, the SERVICE IS HORRIBLE for lunch crowd. There isn't only one server for you; there are a bunch of servers come back and forwarth to your table and drop the food off. So they don't remember what you ordered or drinking. They NEVER bring food for the group at the same timing, so people can eat together.
They are probably on tip-sharing system (they put all the tip in a tip jar, and later everybody share it including with sushi chefs.), so they really don't care about your complaints. In fact, the servers are most of time really non-friendly and argumentative. Your satisfaction is definitely NOT their best interest.
My husban and I were looking for a good place to get sushi (for me) and cooked japanese fare (for him), and we stumbled upon Sushi Yoko in Norcross. The service was great, all the servers were very helpful. I asked a bunch of questions which didn't annoy them at all. We tried several items on the menu:
- a fried dumpling appetizer (gyoza) - it was pretty good I would give 3/5 stars
- one skewer of kobe beef - just to see what all the fuss is about - it was quite delicious though I'm not sure if I would want to pay for the entree portion
- rainbow roll (fish was really fresh and the roll was amazing)
- spicy tuna roll (awesome!)
- sashimi salad (pretty good but I don't think I'll order again - I would probably prefer the seaweed salad)
- my husband ordered the beef teriyaki which was also excellent
They don't have any crazy complex rolls - but if you like good sushi made with fresh fish you definitely enjoy. All the cooked items were really good as well.
We will definitely be back to Sushi Yoko!!!!
Dont go if youre used to long, leisurely lunches. They close the restaurant at 2pm and if youre there any longer, they will pretty much kick you out and not apologize. good luck with that scrappy American business men!
Other than that it's pretty standard fare Japanese food. No suped up rolls or anything like that. Average is agadashi tofu, tempura, miso soup and rice with your meal. I was suprised not to see any Bento boxes?
traditional. Sushi Yoko is a very small restaurant outside of the Perimeter. It's a bit out of the way and located off the highway. If you get lost, you have to turn around. The atmosphere gives out a good Japanese vibe. They have very good sushi and other tasty traditional Japanese foods.
authentic experience, convenient japanese market next door, great sushi!. I love their sushi, their sashimi, their grilled halibut, the service. But most of all, I love the fact that most of japanese-atlantans are frequent patrons and enjoy lunch and dinner there. Their oyako domburi is almost as good as mine!
the other of the two worst sushi place in metro Atl.. I wonder if code enforcement ppl ever visited this place. Everywhere is built with filmsy dry walls, the rest room is dirty and service is nonexistance by hispanic waitresses in kimonos-for a moment I thought I was in Mexico. The sorry decor and service rec'd mirror to Umezono on Cobb Pkwy in Smyrna. I'd be insane to spend another cent at this place.
Enjoyable japanese food.
I have gone here to lunch a couple of times and once for dinner with my husband. I think that the lunch portions for the lunch combos are ample and definitely reasonable. I love the food. I think that the service is definitely 'unamerican' but there is no disrespect intended. They have never been rude or lazy.
When myhusband (who had lived in japan with a japanese family for 6 months) stepped in he said that it smelled like Japan. He enjoyed his meal aswell.
We didn't eat the sushi so I cannot comment on it.
Frugal servings, poor service, and a real flea-bag dump of a location..
I was excited to try this place having been a long time customer of the former owner, Sushi Yoshi. During the first visit, despite our having made reservations for the sushi bar, we were diverted unapologetically to a table lit by bright fluorescents and a blaring TV. The food and service were both ho-hum.
I guess I am a glutton for punishment as I returned. At the time, Sushi Yoshi had somehow lost their liquor license. As I recall, this is what drove the decision to go to Yoko, instead. We invited another family to come with my own totaling 4 kids and 4 adults in our party. We had reserved a week in advance a private room with a table on the ground. We had trouble getting them, yet again, to honor the reservation we had made. We had to wait with the children about 30 minutes after our reservation time to even have our table. Then, they did not have any cold sake. They were simply out of it. In the days of Yoshi, he would let you bring in your own bottle for a corking fee. These people would not let us bring in a bottle of sake we had bought that Japanese market next door. We did offer to pay a generous corking fee. The management refused the money. Furthermore, they would not replenish their own stocks of the very same sake that is sold literally next-door in the very same building. As for the food, the meal was average and the service poor. The sushi helpings were frugal. We had to bus our own table, stacking all the dishes at the end of it as a hint for them to come by and check in on us.
To say the least, we were very dissatisfied and felt like we had been taken for a bumpy ride. It is a boon that Sushi Yoshi has regained their liquor license and is still a great place. We will not visit the Yoko again.
fresh sushi. Dined with a good friend for lunch today.. had a great experience, what an authentic sushi place should be... lots of japenese people in the place, so no lack of atmosphere... fresh sushi, good service. We only ordered sushi so cant speak of anything else but YES THE FISH WAS FRESH and AWESOME. We will be going back very very soon, perhaps next Tues. just keep in mind they close at 2pm for lunch... also the prices were great.. quality excellent!!
