Square Meal Review of Yoshino ?

A closely guarded local secret, the quality of Yoshino’s sushi belies it’s user-friendly, bargain-basement prices. Downstairs is a ten-seater raw fish counter (arrive early to bag a berth), with freshly created sushi packs piled up for takeaway, while the utilitarian blend of bare white walls & mustard-yellow plastic furniture in the upstairs dining room helps to keep prices low. Tuna sashimi is a speciality, the kitchen shows its frying skills with light, greaseless jumbo prawn tempura, & the sushi line-up is topped by a £19.80 assortment covering tuna, albacore, salmon, teriyaki eel, salmon roe, squid, king prawn & a negi toro roll. Service is smiley & swift, particularly at lunchtimes when three-course mini-banquets of fish roe on noodles, tempura salmon or tofu & spinach salad start at £9.80.

    HungryinLondon :: YOSHINO (Picadilly)

    Yoshino is hidden away in a little side street just off Picadilly Circus and if you didn’t know about this small and authentically Japanese sushi joint you would probably not stumble upon it by chance. The menu focuses on sushi and sashimi with a few side dishes as well as a several set menues/bento boxes starting from £20. We had our meal in the downstairs area (there is more seating upstairs) which wasn’t terribly atmospheric and rather chilly (mind you, it was one of the coldest days of the year). I read in other reviews that there is supposed to be a sushi counter downstairs which wasn’t the case when I visited, possibly due to the snow and staff shortage?...

    Rocket & Squash :: After Jiro (Yoshino)

    After Jiro we went to Yoshino, a fairly well established little place tucked away in a side street off Piccadilly. Downstairs appeared cute and atmospheric, though we were seated in the perfectly comfortable if slightly sterile section upstairs. The quality of fish that I had was pretty good, but then it should have been for the price (from £4 for two pieces of squid nigiri, £7 for two pieces of salmon nigiri to up to £10 for two pieces of otoro (fatty tuna)). Well marbled otoro was certainly the highlight and a rare treat (‘treat’ being the operative word at those prices). A sashimi platter looked decent, but the fish was far too cold to enjoy the flavour. Nasu Dengaku (miso glazed aubergine) was excellent, tempura langoustines were large and sweet, though maybe not contained in the lightest or crispest batter. Deep fried oysters were topped with a bizarre ketchup and mustard combination that I wouldn’t bother with again, and I’m not sure what Jiro would have made of the over reliance on savoy cabbage as a decoration...
