Yokozuna Sushi

Valentine’s Day is a wonderful day to spend with your spouse, your boyfriend, and even yourself. And its even better when you can go to a nice restaurant together.

My husband, David, took me to Yokosuma Sushi in the Ashland shopping center (the same one as Anthony’s and Martins) and we sat down at a table.

When you first walk in, you notice a professional and romantic atmosphere where you’re approached by one of the waiters. They tell you that you can sit where ever you want, which is a choice between the bar and the dozen or so tables scattered around the floor. Once you sit down, you’re asked what you want to drink with a wide selection of alcohol and only three choices for sodas: Coke, Diet Coke, and Sprite*. However, the food choices varied from deep fried cheesecake to delicious sushi rolls and appetizers everywhere.

The food was delicious. Every bite of the tuna rolls and the shumai my husband and I had were divine. My taste buds did a little dance every time I took a bite. And for dessert, we had the deep fried cheesecake. That was the best choice we could have made. Presentation was beautiful.

The staff were friendly and helpful. They also seem to have a few regulars, so that’s a plus. It means that they care about all their customers, treating them more like guests.

I also visited the bathroom while I was there. Admittedly, there must be something wrong with the toilet and the drain in the floor was not in the right place, leaving a hole that someone could trip on, but the bathroom was classy and decorated nicely. It also smelled good.

I give Yokozuna Sushi four out of five stars.
