Yokohama Japanese Restaurant
Yokohama, which opened in the fall of 1989, is the first Japanese restaurant in the Chester County area. It is a place for friends and families to enjoy a nice relaxing meal or celebrate special occasions. The restaurant consists of three seating areas. The Teppanyaki tables, the Sushi tables, and the Sushi bar. There are four Teppanyaki tables where you and your loved ones watch the chef cook your meals. The tables seat 8-9 people, but they can be extended to seat up to 15 people. The Teppanyaki tables afford you the opportunity to meet new people as different parties are seated at the same table. On the other side, there are nine individual tables that seat 2-4 people and can be combined for bigger parties. Here you can enjoy an intimate meal with your friends and/or family members. You have the choice of ordering food prepared in the kitchen or your favorite sushi which is prepared at the sushi bar. The Sushi bar seats 8 people. You can enjoy engaging conversations with our sushi chefs as they create your sushi.
i was hoping for a neat chef show...but alas that maybe a thing of the past. Even though we didn't get a show like I wanted, it was a good time and food, staff was helpful and even took note of a comment about us being there for a birthday and brought out the dessert with a candle. The chef did a great job and expressed that he wished to give us more show but insurance would not allow. We had children under 3 and it was a great experience for them as well. I will go back if we are in the area again.
I just recently moved to the area for work, and was driving around to get a little more familiar with the area. I stumbled upon a hidden shopping center called Marchwood Shopping Center off of Route 100 and Ship Rd, and in there, I discovered Yokohama Japanese Restaurant. The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly, and from the sushi chefs to the hibachi chefs to the waitors, everyone was really nice and made me feel really welcomed. It's a BYOB, so I brought a bottle of wine (cost me $20 at a wine store as opposed to paying $100 or more at an establishment that has a liquor license) and I was able to enjoy GREAT food without the HIGH price tab. My wife and I shared an assortment of sushi and sashimi from the a la carte menu as appetizers, and finished off with filet mignon and scallops for dinner. TO DIE FOR. I've eaten at a lot of Japanese restaurants, but this one ranks amongst the top in freshness and service. I definitely will be back. Just writing this review, I'm already craving it again. If you're there, I'll see you tonight. =)
What a restaurant. While the front entrance is like many mature shopping centers and lacks much appeal, once you enter the restaurant you will find the restaurant to be very clean and the staff to be overly inviting. But wait until you taste their food. The fish is always fresh and the sushi is as good as anything I have had in Philadelphia or New York. The sushi chefs are a lot of fun too and being a regular satisfied customer they will joke around with the group. I will guaranty you will thoroughly enjoy this restaurant. I like it so much that I visit at least once a month. When you go make sure you order the negamaki. Enjoy!
