I heard about this restaurant through a daily deal my friend got and we decided to check it out last night. I am thrilled to have discovered my new favorite sushi restaurant in South Florida... and there are a lot of them to choose from. From the stools at the sushi bars that you can adjust (I'm only 5' so being able to raise my seat up is a huge bonus), phenomenal sake's available and the out of the box option of being able to order yakitori, it was one of the best meals I have had in a long time. Never had I heard of yakitori before and am always excited to try something new. We tried a few of the options, such as okra, pork belly, bacon wrapped asparagus, eel (my favorite) and one of the largest oysters I've ever seen. All cooked to perfection with incredible flavors, without being overly salty.
Palm Beach and Broward County has its very first yakitori bar! Need I say more? For those of you unfamiliar with the term, it is a type of Japanese bbq where you grill meats and veggies on a skewer and often enjoyed with Japanese beer or sake. New York and LA have spoiled me with their little Izakaya's or Japanese lounges where you can spend hours with friends in a casual atmosphere enjoying good food, plain and simple. They also have Sapporo draft here along with the extensive sake list. Although the previous restaurant at this location, Daimatsu, was on point with the fresh fish from Japan and tako yaki (tasty octopus balls of perfection)
Being a huge fan of sushi, I have had my fair share of trying sushi restaurants. I have been going here for years & between the service, prices and fresh sushi in the area, there is no competition. Try a hand roll and with how much they give you, you may not want to get one anywhere else. The "mumbo jumbo" & "birthday roll" are some of my faves. Say hi to John and his wife as they seem to know regulars by name. They are hard-working which shows by the quality of their food & their repeat customers. Sushi of Boca is thee best kept secret sushi bar, try it & you won't be disappointed.
Great variety of sushi! This was a great find and we have OpenTable to thank. The service was great and they were busy. We started with the edamame the portion was very nice a it would have served more than 2 - we still finished it! Try the salmon wrapped in avocado! Great! Try the pink lady sushi (salmon) - also great! Regulars came in and were welcomed. We were welcomed just as warmly. We also had wine - nice variety. Spicey tuna - had a great kick. Amazing dinner - LOVED every bite!
It was our first time here and the food was so good. The service is relaxed which fit our style of dining because we don't like to be rushed to order and leave as soon as we're done. We like to take our time and have several courses and sit and talk. My husband loved the Discovery stuff on the TV while we ate which made the experience even more relaxing as if it was a quiet night at home but we were treated to the best, freshest sushi- we will definitely be back.
Hands down best sushi in Boca Raton and possibly Palm Beach County. I would recommend the Yakitori and any of their signature rolls especially the four seasons (I've had them all) Other than the food the best part of the whole operation is the service and atmosphere. The staff knows what everything is and is more than willing to accommodate any requests, it helps to be in an extremely comfortable and spacey environment.
Yakitori is our favorite Japanese restaurant in Boca. Everything is delicious and beautifully presented. It is the only Japanese restaurant where we can always have delicious jumbo oysters, monkfish liver, live scallops and so many other delicacies. Sushi chef/owner Jason is one of the best and creative sushi chefs we know. Not to mention the service, Tina and her team are the friendliest servers you will find in Boca.
They have Osaka Tuna on the menu, which is something that I used to order consistently at my previous favorite spot that is no longer in business. My dreams came true and I had to pinch myself when I tasted that first bite... how I have missed my Osaka tuna all this time and now I can have it again and again!
Go here for the freshest fish and highest quality rice as well as a lot of creativity on the menu. Please if you have never been to Yakitori or are loyal to some other sushi place (like i was) you MUST GO NOW and try it for yourself :) You will be hooked... in fact I'm about to head there now!
