I have been to Sushi Yoshi quite a few times over the past few months. I am highly impressed with there quality of sushi as well as the presentation. The place is kept clean and the atmosphere is lovely. I've been there when the place has been very slow and when it has been busy. Both times I have received efficient and friendly service. From other reviews of the restaurant, I had read that the place has horrible service. With all the times that I have been there, I haven't seen this. Being a server myself (and no, not at this sushi place) I know what poor service is. My assumption is that they have a new staff that is more attentive.
I would highly recommend this sushi place. I am not sure of how authentic it is but as far as my experience goes, it's wonderful.
I'm a sushi nut. Upon moving to Superior I set out to find the best sushi joint in my area. Of the four restaurants I found on McCaslin, Sushi Yoshi was unimpressive in every regard. The sushi itself was mediocre in terms of taste, presentation and value/size, the pricing higher than it should be and the service somewhat lower, and the environment unremarkable in every sense. Of the sushi resaurants near the McCaslin/Hwy 36 intersection, Sushi Yoshi is nearly the worst.
Agree with other posters about poor service. The whole process of getting someone to take our order and then later give us the check and then take our money took way too much effort than it should. We didn't find the food good enough to put up with this horrendous service.
My husband and I received poor service when we visited here. The food was nothing special. To the reviewers that say Sushi Yoshi is comparable to places in Japan, you must either work for the restaurant or don't know much about Japanese food. It embarrasses me (as a native from Japan) to have people think this restaurant is anywhere near the same level of what you can experience in Japan.
I've been to Sushi Yoshi dozens of times, and each time I go I'm charmed by Yoshi-san's subtlety and finesse with Japanese cooking and food preparation. I've eaten sushi all over the USA and Japan; Sushi Yoshi rates at the very top of the tree in terms of the freshness of the sashimi and the surprises that he often serves up with simple ingredients. Yoshi-san was apprenticed as a young cook for years in Japan, in the traditional manner. His repertoire is vast. Even a simple dish like agedashi tofu just has a freshness about it that elevates it above the norm. Highly recommended for lunch or dinner.
milehighguy2008--do you work for the restaurant? :)
To suggest that places in LA's Japan Town and Honolulu couldn't hold a candle to Sushi Yoshi is quite an assertion!!
Sadly my personal experience doesn't reflect that level of quality in food preparation or service.
Best advice for everyone is just to try and see for yourself.
My experience with sushi restaurants in Denver has generally been guarded, often levaing me disappointed with the quality of the food, and the great expense. Sushi Yoshi is an exception to the rule. Sushi Yoshi is quite a gem of a sushi restaurant, offering delectable traditional sushi, maki sushi, and innovative sushi rolls. The wait staff is is impeccably mannered and attentive, the general atmosphere is modern and spotless, and the sushi chefs are hard working to deliver timely orders to it's customers. I was especially impressed with the freshness of the sushi and having had attempted sushi in a number of resturants ranging from L.A.'s japantown, Honolulu, and other largely Japanese enclaves, they could not hold a candle to Sushi Yoshi here in Colorado. For those in your party who prefer not to eat sushi but would like to try Japanese cuisine at it's finest, I highly recommend an elegant dish on the extensive non-sushi menu- the Tempura Lobster.
Overall, I would rate the experience as exceptional and very positive. I was greeted upon entering and thanked before leaving. That's quite rare in any business today and I appreciated the recognition. The prices were expected and are not at all out of line, especially when considering the quality and the portions the dining patron receives. I drive more than 40 miles round trip to enjoy this experience and I won't consider another sushi restaurant in Denver, this is my 1st pick and there are numerous to pick from. Try Sushi Yoshi, you will find an entirely new and positive sushi experience.
On a final note, I managed to end the meal with a delightful green-tea infused creme brulee that will surprise you with it's delicate flavor. That is, if you can finish it! It's big enough for two.
SUSHI YOSHI IS THE BEST!!
I think the problem is that the quality of food at Sushi Yoshi is inconsistent. Definitely Colorado lacks quality sushi compared to a lot of other areas in the US. I'm surprised one of the previous reviewers favorably compared Sushi Yoshi to establishments in California and Japan. But, beauty (in this case, taste) is in the eye of the beholder. I'll have to agree with one of the previous posters that the prices are a bit high. I also agree that portions don't have to be huge, but I would prefer them larger so that I can share with others in my party. I do agree that there are better in the area.
I'm a big sushi fan and I've been to sushi restaurants all over Colorado, California, and many in Japan. I agree with the positive reviews here -- I think Sushi Yoshi has some of the best I've ever had. Personally I think the prices are quite fair considering the quality of the ingredients and preparation (I don't think its a good idea to have large portions when eating sushi anyway -- savor it). I read some of the negative reviews and I expect experiences like that rare -- I've been to Sushi Yoshi over a dozen times and have never been disappointed. While the service may be a bit slower when its crowded, I just feel glad that they take the same care with preparation when its busy as when its slow. Anyway, I can't recommend it enough -- its the art form at its best.
Heard Yoshi Shiuchi of Sushi Tora had opened up his own place. Tried Sushi Yoshi this past weekend and had a horrible experience. Our order took almost an hour to get served. Hostess (our server too) actually spilled soy sauce on my wife as she was clearing the table. She muttered an apology that didn't seem sincere. Felt like she was trying to rush us out. Food wasn't bad, but nothing spectacular. Agree that portions were small for the price.
