Nice little low-key sushi joint. The fish is really fresh and the chefs make really good sashimi. I also love the soft-shell crab, which is perfectly fried to a crisp. Good service and good happy hour specials.

What we love at Yoshi Sushi

My boyfriend and I have been frequenting Yoshi Sushi regularly for more than two years. We love it! We often order their specialties; blue fin tuna, lobster rolls, and their amazing live scallop, which is prepared as a two-part meal. Half of it is raw and delicate, and the other part is cooked with mushrooms, special sauce with spices. We love their miso sea bass, which is a warm tender dish, and very comforting. There is always a scurry over it when it arrives to the table, no m...view moreatter how many orders we place! My uni with quail egg is always fresh and the perfect temperature. (Something that has often been inconsistent, in my 25 years of ordering it in other sushi bars.) Two of my favorites are the salmon pate which is a sashimi diced dish topped with jalapenos, and the tuna poki, which is cubed tuna tossed with fresh seaweed in a sesame seasoning. We also like the goyza pork dumplings with the teriyaki dipping sauce.\r
\r
As you can see we primarily order sushi?s or sashimi?s, but have many friends that we have taken there that are not really fish eaters. I cannot speak for the dishes they order, but I can say that EVERY ONE of our friends, who have tried it, loves Yoshi?s. \r
\r
We have a hard time going anywhere else now because it is so consistent, and fresh and that is always so when you go to other sushi bars!""\r

Great Drink Specials and Sushi

Yoshi has been one of our favorite sushi spots since reading the reviews on Citysearch last year. The ambience feels inappropriately cheap compared to some of the menu prices, but the sushi makes up for what the decor lacks. Katsu-ya in Studio City being our all-time favorite LA sushi, we needed to find a place on the other side of the hill that had some similar specialty dishes. Yoshi offers a heartier version of the crispy rice with spicy tuna, excellent and inventive rolls (we love ...view morethe sushi bomb and the spicy California ball), as well as fresh nigiri. I don't even like cucumbers, but the cucumber dish served when you sit is delicious! Yoshi has great drink specials like 2 for 1 beers and free sake bomb night (free sake when you order a beer) that keep us coming back on weekends. The friendly staff and delivery are an added bonus! Plan to spend a minimum of $20 a person if ordering specials.view less

Looks and feels nice, but doesn't taste quite right

Attractive environment and pleasant atmosphere. Open and bustling bar; friendly and attentive staff. However, food quality is lacking. 5-10 minutes after ordering, I was told my halibut would have to be cut from a different section of the fish because they were running out, but that there wouldn't be too much of a difference; I accepted--a mistake. Halibut was gummy and popped in my mouth as I bit down; it tasted like it had been sitting out for entirely too long. It may have been...view more cut against the grain; perhaps that contributed to the gumminess. Yes, I was warned and I accepted, but I was expecting slightly different flavor or hue; not what seemed to me to be bad fish.\r
My other orders were all decent; temperature issues and unimpressive flavors, but a good menu selection.\r
Prices are decent, yes, but better sushi is available in town for just as much of a deal, if not more. In short: I came, I ate, and I don't see myself ever returning. 3 stars for average.

Suprisingly good for the price

Although I'd read good reviews, the food still exceeded my expectations. Most sushi at this price is of much lesser quality. All this fish was fresh and flavorful, not fishy or tough. I also ordered the spicy tuna on crispy rice cake which was a gamble because I'm extremely picky about spicy tuna, but there's was delightful. Not too spicy, or mayo-y, and it still tasted like fresh tuna. Plus they had scallions mixed in which I'm partial to. Service was somewhat slow but I was in good c...view moreompany and had no complaints. As an added bonus they had $1 sake (I'm not sure whether this is everyday or just Tuesdays). We tried both the hot and cold, the cold was very sweet and mild, the hot was dryer but still mild. Neither were spectacular but they were palatable and only a dollar! I plan on returning very soon.view less

Stop kidding, there is WAY better in L.A

Ok, before going to this place, literally down my street, I checked out the reviews and was very surprised to see that this place was described as one of the best sushi places in LA. Low key, but very good sushi.\r
It is therefore with all confidence that I brought my friends there for dinner yesterday night. \r
\r
Ambiance: Low key: check. But we didn't care at all. I know for a fact that usually good sushi places look like that.\r
Food: it was ok, quite good, really. But definite
...view morely not as good as other places in LA, such as Asakuma (Brentwood), Asuka (Westwood) etc. In my opinion, when you want to know what a sushi place can pull out, ask them for their specialty. Even better if it's a tempura style roll. Then you'll see what the chef can really do! I ordered the dragon roll (I think that's the name). I was good, very good, but I didn't think ""wow this is GREAT sushi"".\r
Time: ok, we waited for 40 minutes to get two rolls and an octopus salad. Or, sorry, and two beers. Maybe the bees took forever to brew or something. Really, it was quite upseting. Then we waited something like 10 minutes to get the check... eh well. It was not really expensive, so I guess it makes up for it ;-)\r
People: Really nice staff.\r
\r
CONCLUSION: This place is a good neighborhood sushi place, but not ""the best"" place in LA, and is far from it. Other places are not more expensive, but better imo.\r

Excellent neighborhood sushi

I've eaten at Yoshi's many times over the past year and have never been disappointed, but have also never been blown away by their sushi. The fish is always very fresh, the rolls creative, the following loyal, and the prices shockingly low. As neighborhood sushi restaurants go, Yoshi's is absolutely top of the line, but I don't know that I'd drive across town for it.

Great Sushi

Yoshi's is excellent. The fish is fresh, the service friendly, and the atmosphere inviting. They have drink specials including half off sake night, I believe on Thursdays, and sake bomb night on Saturdays. They have some very creative rolls, the spicy spicy roll being one of my favorites. The sushi is very good and they have this amazing Chilean sea bass in a miso glaze that you must try.
