Great Sushi! – A very small restaurant tucked in the corner of a small plaza, this is a dining experience that can't be missed! I tried three rolls and they were all great. Here they are from least favorite to favorite:
New York $ 4.75 - cream cheese and avocado wrapped in shrimp. Could have used more cream cheese but otherwise great.
Tatsuo (Dragon) Roll $ 8.95 - two pieces of shrimp tempura, Japanese mayo, and cucumber wrapped in eel and avocado. Delicious!
Jackie Roll $ 4.75 - scallops, shrimp, jalapeno sauce. Very unique and simply amazing! Best roll I have ever had!
The service was exceptional and the staff was very friendly. It was obvious that they have a very loyal customer base as the staff was chatting and joking with many of the customers. There was also a traditional sitting Japanese dining area.
Great Sushi – Yuki Sushi has the best sushi I have ever tasted in the Bay Area. The Hamachi is fabulous. It just melts in your mouth. Also, the spicy tuna role is well made with a tasty jalapeno/mayo sauce. However, on the Baja role I thought there was an excess amount of mayo. It demolished the taste of the California role. The Shyumai was also excellent with its tangy mustard. The service was good, but I would not recommend going to Yuki Sushi with a large group due to the restaurant's size. Overall, Yuki Sushi is a small restaurant with big tastes.
hamachi to die for – i have to admit i am addicted to their hamachi. if there is a support group for hamachi addicts, let me know. the jalapeno sauce used on the spicy rolls is fabulous as well -- none of that cliche red-rooster sauce mixture you get in most other sushi bars in the spicy tuna rolls! i think i'm addicted to the spicy sauce too... i seem to experience regular cravings for a yuki spicy tuna "fix." the staff here is as friendly as they get. i am always amazed at how many people in the restaurant seem to know the staff at a personal level, exchanging greetings and stories about their families. brave the crowds and give them a try, you won't regret it!
My Favorite Restaurant – Yuki is my favorite restaurant because the food is amazing and the staff is very friendly. The sashimi/fish is the best Ive had at any price; large portions and quality you can "see" even as an amature sushi fanatic like myself. Load up on a large Asahi and a order of their ten-zaru soba noodles for a simple meal with major flavor!
forget toro, white tuna special of the day was divine. like buttery filet mignon. just thinking about it makes me want to go right now! check out the baja roll, or anything else w. their super spicy jalapeno sauce! and don't forget the hamachi and another order of white tuna. white tuna...white tuna...white tuna...
Small but very nice – Small family-owned place that is often packed with diners. The servers are always polite and friendly. The food is excellent. My spouse likes the sushi and I love their tempura. One of our favorite places! This place reminds us Cheers, the TV series.
Good sushi – The sushi is good. The fish is fresh. The staff is nice. The place can get pretty crowded and it's small
Super Sushi! – Over the years, I have become a sushi fanatic. I must say that Yuki Sushi is by far the best Japanese restaurant in the South Bay. Their cuts of sushi are large and fresh, and their menu has lots of items not found at other Japanese restaurants.
This is a busy restaurant, so make reservations or arrive 30 minutes prior to when you want to eat during peak dinner times.
YUMMI SUSHI – The place is always packed...but do not let that deter you. The staff is always friendly and upbeat, sush VERY fresh, salmon misosuki is simply divine.
Excellent Aji! – It's the best Aji I've tasted. The shrimp we ordered was also good and fresh. We came during lunch, and it was packed! Looks like the place needs extension, but people DO want to wait. Probz because of the food, or because of the service. Probz both. I fell in love with the Aji, so we ordered twice, the same bento. It's tender, but crispy. So crispy. The sushi was not good. It's not crunchy, but too soft. Too much rice too. Suggestion: go for the bento, skip the sushi. You can get the sushi in Miyake (Stanford) a lot cheaper and tastier!
