Yo! Sushi – Review!

In half term we went to stay with our lovely friends Katy, Daisy and Evie who are MASSIVE Yo! Sushi fans. They talk about it a lot and because we’ve been meaning to try it for ages, half term, with them to guide us on what to pick, seemed like the perfect time to visit.

Yo! Sushi isn’t somewhere you might think to be child friendly but actually, why not? Sure, sushi might not be everyone’s cup of tea but Florence loves it when we buy little packs in the supermarket and really there’s lots on the menu which isn’t raw fish and totally appealing to little folks. During half term they had a deal on where each family dining could claim a free chicken katsu curry which is something my two love anyway and on top of this Jimmy particularly seemed to enjoy a bowl of edamame beans. Now that’s healthy AND I didn’t have to force it down him!

They were both mesmerised by the conveyor belt which I could see perhaps might be a problem if you were on a budget… Little hands kept flying out to take more and more so a little bit of supervision is needed but really they loved the experience and the food… Oh the food was SO yummy! Katy recommended Blossom Rolls to me which have a prawn kasu in the middle and a spicy tuna on top of the rice… They were absolutely delicious and I ate about a hundred of them! Yum, yum, yum!

This crazy gang!

Choosing the food as it comes round on a conveyor belt was a real novelty. Each dish has a coloured plate which tells its price. Seven colours, seven prices!

This is a dish Jimmy chose thinking it was smoked salmon (he loves smoked salmon) but he wasn't keen on the raw fish and preferred things like the kasu. Lucky me got to hoover this up and it was lovely as well as super healthy!

I think the whole atmosphere at Yo! Sushi is brilliant for children. Lots to see, lots to eat besides raw fish (something the children probably aren't as keen on) and really healthy to boot!

The children definitely want to go back!

So, we had a lovely meal and would definitely go back but I have to say I do think it’s quite pricey… Those dishes add up and I’m not sure it’s the most cost effective way of dining with children if you let them sit near the conveyor belt. But… It’s healthy and the food is delicious while it’s also a real experience for a treat. I’ve been dreaming of those Blossom Rolls ever since so thanks to Katy for recommending them to me. Katy recommended so many lovely things and also explained how you can order from the menu for hot food too and things like the crispy beef and katsu prawns went down very well with out little people.

Can’t wait to go back!
