Yokozuna was a wonderful suprise in my neighborhood, fusion Japanese and Phillipino food. There was a great variety of dinners. I loved their chicken lumpia. My sister had a great tempura dinner box. There were plenty of vegetarian options for the brother in law. The food arrived quickly in 15 minutes. The best part of dinner was meeting the owners.... More

I never had Filipino food. So we gave a try. But we were late and special Filipiono food was all sold out. So go early. But still pretty good.

After our first disaster and hearing that the food improved, we decided to try it again for ourselves. Well, it's still not real Japanese food. The restaurant does states it's Japanese/Philopino food. So, I ordered Shashimi/Tempura combo which comes with Miso Soup and Japanese salad. Well, the Miso soup was stuffed with Tofu which I don't like. The broth was... More

We were in town President's day weekend- Sat night and wanted to dine and get the kids to bed. The Cross Roads Cafe and other recommended places were swamped so we came here. My son, well traveled, said it was the worst sushi he had ever had. The rolls had so much rice it was hard to find the fish.... More

Fantastic Food. Great Service. Nice Atmosphere. Priced Right. Highly Recommended. Try it and judge for yourself, and not by what others say! Had a good time, enjoyed it, and will go there many times again. The Japanese-Filipino Asian Fusion is wonderful.

Highly overpriced. Miso soup tasted like dishwater - no flavor whatsoever. The Japanese Salad was nothing better than raw shredded cabbage - no dressing. And, for their prices I would prefer not to be served on plastic dishes. The Sashimi was good, but a joke for the price. The Tempura and my husband's chicken dish was very greasy. We thought...

This was so bad it was surreal. To say that the service was bad implies that there was an attempt at actual service, when in fact it was just random people stopping at the table with no apparent aim. The iceberg lettuce in the salad was crisp, which is the only positive comment to be made about the food. There... More

With all the competitors popping up, this will always be a favorite. Sometimes the service is slow, but well worth the wait!

Most sushi in this town is over priced and the portions are too large for the normal person to eat without stuffing your face... I like the smaller sized rolls and smaller price as well. The quality is high and service good. However if in a hurry not the place as usually only one server working.
