As recommended by friends, we had a lunch at Yuki during a weekday. We ordered smoked saba, salmon misoyaki, and steamed basa. The food was great. We also enjoyed the quiet atmosphere and services.

Love this place and had known the staff well. Best sushi place in the area. We take friends and family who are visiting and they want to come back for more. Been coming here for years 1-2x/week. Just disappointed that they don't open on Sunday's anymore; always came here after Sunday mass.

I looked up Yuki in TA as a recommended Japanese restaurant. When arriving I was a bit concerned, as the entrance looked shabby and the restaurant itself very simple. But man, the food we ordered was outstanding, tastes like in Tokyo and always served with a smile. Japanese Tea is being constantly refilled free of charge. I had Salmon Teriyaki... More

Don't let the location fool you. This place can compete with the best of downtown. Ordered the Chef's Choice Sashimi Dinner. Wish I tried more of the menu. May have gotten lucky but much of it was premium cuts. Firm fish cut correctly. Rice was cooked right, firm without mushiness or water. Place was busy for a Thursday dinner service.... More

My husband and I found this restaurant by accident. It was a pleasant surprise. It is a small but well run place. We both had the Pick 3 dinner special. That allowed us to try several different meals. I had the calamari steak, seared and cooked to perfection. The sushi was great. My husband had the Ginger Pork. He was... More

I have spent many years in Japan and Yuki's is still one of the best Japanese restaurants I have every sampled. Now under new owner, the kitchen remains excellent. However, Yosi, the new Sushi Chef, is an artist and an amazingly accomplished "Master Chef". His creations are extraordinary, some of which I never seen anywhere else, including Japan. He make...

We've eaten sushi all over the world and our usual response is "It's good, but its not Yuki." We are extremely lucky to have Yuki as our neighborhood Japanese restaurant. Whether its wonderfully fresh sashimi and sushi, or more exotic fare such as tuna heads and spines ("harmonicas"), it is extremely rare to get even a mediocre dish. As an... More

The best, fresh, sushi and sashimi in Fremont is here at Yuki's. Yuki-san is the best sushi chef in the city and his select offerings are consistently so fresh and flavorful. We love the "Kyoto tofu"--a very special treat when available--it was so delicious that we ordered a second dish and another "to go." Sit at the sushi bar and... More

I've been eating here for over a decade, lovely food and nice people. Try the gyoza and the amiebi. It gets crowded, so come early or make a reservation. The lunch specials are a really good deal.

Yuki's food is like the great family owned restaurants back in Japan. It is the most authentic food I've tasted since returning from living in Japan. I especially enjoyed the sushi when the Dad of the family made them. He used to fix the sushi at their older restaurant but I haven't seen him at this current location. Nonetheless, the... More
