I love sushi. Have I mentioned that before?
On entering the restaurant, there’s the familiar styling that’s made Yo! the huge brand that it is – from the little dishes tootling around the conveyor belt to the soy sauce and wasabi waiting patiently to be dipped.
It was a Sunday, and the ‘Sumo Sundays’ promotion was running. If you’re a sushi fan you’ll know that this means all you can eat for £19.50. Quite a lot for one meal, but what a meal I had! It was busy when we arrived, so we joined the queue and it went down surprisingly fast. Within 15 minutes we were seated by the conveyor belt, waiting to start shovelling the plates onto our table.
With a little help from the menu, I’ve managed to track down some of the delicious morsels that I had. Here’s a list of the plates that I can remember, but I’m sure there are a few that have slipped my mind:
- Tuna Tataki & Ponzu
- Salmon & Yuzu Salsa Sashimi
- Tuna sashimi
- Coriander Seared Tuna
- Avocado Maki
- Inari & Chive Futomaki
- Salmon Maki
- Tuna Maki
- Spicy Chicken ISO
- YO! Roll – woohoo
- Salmon Dragon Roll
- Inari Pocket
- Salmon Nigri
- And loads of random handrolls
You could be forgiven for thinking that an all you can eat sushi meal would be more about quantity than quality, but this was both. As well as gorging on fish and rice and chicken and veggies and soy sauce and everything else, it was the same high quality that you get day in and day out at Yo!
I suppose that’s the benefit of it being such a big chain, but every experience I’ve had of Yo! has been amazing.
The staff were really friendly, the food was lovely and we had a great time.
