Agree with the other reviewer that the ratings for this place are way out of line with reality. We trekked all the way out here from the UWS on the basis of the high ratings - and for what? If I lived around the corner and was feeling lazy, it would be ok. The food wasn't inedible, just below par and nothing special. The rolls all tasted kind of the same and the sashimi was better but still expensive for what we got (for a couple of bucks extra we could have gone somewhere much nicer). Teriyaki sauce was watery. And unless you like blaring top-40 dance music, the atmosphere is unappetizing too.

I was seeing a punk show in Tompkins Square Park across the street, & had some time in between bands, so I wanted to get something GOOD to eat. I saw this place right across the street fron the park, it looked nice, the menu looked good, so I went in. I am SO glad I did! The food I had was amazing! For an appetizer I had the Yellowtail Jalapeno, & for lunch I had the Shrimp Noodle soup! Absolutely delicious! It was so good that I ate there the next time I came into the city! I highly recommend this establishment!!!

These reviews are insane, or written by people from Iowa. Yoshi is no better or different than your run of the mill crappy sushi join on the upper east side... everything is a california roll (sign one of McDonalds sushi), the fish was more or less tasteless, their salad is iceberg. The spider roll we got actually tasted like it was cooked in 5 day old oil. Long story short I've been searching for a place to replace Kura Sushi (one of the best in the EV for a long time), this ain't even close. -rt

This is one, if not, the best Sushi place in the East Village. Food and service are perfect. Sometimes the music is too loud

I order from Yoshi several nights a week. They have great vegetarian sushi, deliver fast, and they're open late. What's not to love? I often ask for extra ginger and no wasabi and instead get the normal ginger-and-wasabi, but other than that and the fact that they bombard your building with menus, they're great.

Ate at Yoshi last night and had a bad experience. The minute our food came fruit flies came SWARMING all over our food!! As we ate we kept having to swat the fruit flies away. And you can't say it's not Yoshi's fault for the flies. Fruit flies are a sign that the place is dirty and that they don't toss our their garbage. And they were blasting the worst R&B pop music. Seriously - I don't want to listen to Single Ladies as I eat my sushi. Only high point of the meal is the value you get from ordering the special rolls. For average price of $11 you get a roll that is 10 pieces. But the sushi here is not the best sushi like everyone states. Its just okay. If you like eating average sushi with fruit flies surrounding your food as you eat, then Yoshi is your place. But I will never visit again. There are other sushi places that are better and most importantly CLEAN!!

We love Yoshi! The quality is incredible! We actually had conversations about it with the owner Peter as well as the head Chef...Master Chan. As fresh as fish as possible, the rolls are unique and awesome! Chef rolls are huge too, making them great value and quantity. Love the steamed shrimp shumai. If you like shumai, these will blow you away. They are incredibly friendly too...they make sure to remember you. Def. cheap, def. awesome.
