The sushi deluxe meal is great, as is the teriyaki salmon dinner. Appetizers like tako-su (octopus with cucumbers and seaweed in vinegar) are not served at... More

Stopped here for lunch and was very impressed by the quality of sushi. The tuna, salmon, and yellowtail were excellent. Lunch prices were very reasonable as well.

The service is excellent. The woman waiting on all the tables was so sweet. The sushi wasn't great but the appetizers were and the noodles were delicious and a wonderful value!

Excellent service, clean, quiet. I was there on a Tuesday evening (early), the only customer. Treated with extreme consideration. Down to earth sushi chef and adorable owner. Explained that the sushi bar counter was "too narrow" for regular food. When I said, "I understand", she said, "You do?" Ice cream helpings very large. Excellent sea bass and mackerel sushi. No...

I love this place. Cozy, informal, BYOB, friendly service. And the food is SO GOOD. Try the sweet potato rolls- best I've ever had. Sushi is cheap and entrees are reasonable, though not quite as cheap. Everything is fresh and delicious. Highly recommended. They're a tiny little spot and not always full of people but don't be scared away by... More

Yokohama is a Japanese restaurant serving delicious and affordable Japanese food in a cozy and friendly spot. From the tempura to the gyoza to green tea ice cream-all was fresh and tasty. Delightful owner makes you feel welcome and well taken care of. Why aren't there more people enjoying this place? Would gladly return. BYOB
