Yoko sushi specializes in traditional Japanese sushi and noodle dishes, with a wide variety of combination meals for groups of all sizes. Delivery available within 3km between 5pm-10pm.
We decided to finally try Yoko on a Saturday afternoon since we drive by this restaurant very often.
When we arrived the place was quite empty. The decor is nothing special, but everything was neat and tidy.
We were happily greeted by the lady owner and were promptly seated. She gave our 14 month old a big smile and chatted with her for a bit before getting us some tea. As with most Japanese restaurants in Coquitlam, this one is Korean run as well.
We ordered a few of our usual dishes, chiraishi don, and a chicken udon in soup, so the munchkin could have some as well.
Overall everything was very fresh, and they used higher quality ingredients than other nearby Japanese restaurants. (e.g. sockeye salmon vs atlantic)
Service was friendly and you could tell this was a family run restaurant as it felt quite homey dining here.
Price wise items were a touch more expensive than nearby places, but given the differences in quality, we didn't mind too much. Portion sizes were quite average. One interesting note was with the Chiraishi don, she offered to refill the rice when we were done. Something no other place does.
Overall we enjoyed the experience, and it was nice to be in a quiet restaurant where no one minded if our 14 month old fussed during her meal. Certainly nice to have yet another option in our neighbourhood.
Just had the worst customer service from Yoko Sushi in Coquitlam. Pick up my order, get home - half of my order is wrong. No big deal. I'm sure if I call them, they will deliver the rest of my order. Clearly... not so much. They basically didn't believe me on the phone, made me bring the entire order back so I couldn't even eat what was correct. When I asked if they could deliver the rest of my order, she said they would have to pay the delivery guy. So that wasn't an option. At this point, I'm hangry AND angry. When I get back to Yoko, I literally have to pick up the roll in my hand to show her that it's not my order because she just keeps looking at the receipt and saying that's what I ordered. At the end of this, they gave me my money back and I had to give the whole order back so I'm still hangry. I won't be back, and she didn't seem too sad to see me leave.
Their sushi is good, but nothing special. I will happily order from the other three sushi restaurants down the street.
Recently received a notice in the mail about Yoko Sushi which has just recently opened, so we thought we'd give it a try.
Arrived just after 7pm, restaurant was moderately busy. Ordered a sushi roll to start, which arrived quickly. Udon and Oyakodon were our main courses - fairly standard sushi/Japanese fare, but was well-prepared and flavourful. Finished with a bit of green tea ice cream after the meal. Dinner was just over $25 for both of us.
Overall I liked the restaurant, and I think I'll be back as it's quick and convenient.
After receiving a brochure for this place back in November '08, this place is now my first choice for eating Japanense. The Salmon Sashimi and Deluxe Sushi are my main dishes. The quality of the West Coast Sockeye Salmon is second to none along with the different choices of Deluxe Sushi that can be ordered. I am usually there on non peak hours, so the service is usually there when you need a top up on tea or to order more food. The interior of the place is well managed and is kept with a warm delight. With two of us, we usually pay around $35 which includes a good tip.
