Restaurant Review: Yummy Sushi: Dinner

Yummy Sushi

Price: $-$$


Yummy Sushi is a family-owned restaurant tucked away in the corner of a strip mall. The ambiance is soft and relaxing and service is friendly and courteous. Service may be slow sometimes because there is only one waitress, the mother, rushing about. Also, there are usually 3 little girls running around, with the youngest one occasionally screaming or crying, so be warned if you are intolerant of such noises.


Their rolls are not cheap but come decently sized and fresh. The spicy tuna roll was generously stuffed with fish and the dragon roll was beautifully presented.


Two of my friends ordered the nabeyaki udon but didn’t feel too strongly about this dish. One of them commented that it was a bit lacking in flavor. Props to the presentation, though.


Aside from Japanese food, they also have a small specials section, which features some vietnamnese cuisine. Pho is a relatively safe choice. It comes cheap, filling and delicious. The only criticism one of my friends had was that the beef was slightly overdone.


I ordered their curry chicken, which I thought was great. The chunks of chicken are tender and plentiful, mixed in with some potatoes and the curry seems to have coconut milk added in. Plus points there.


Another one of my friends ordered the katsudon, but due to some confusion, she received just a katsu dish. She remarked that the chicken was alright, but she found the katsu sauce to be too sour, which I agreed with. I’m not sure what genuine katsu sauce should taste like, but I’m pretty sure that it’s supposed to be kind of sweet and tangy, which this sauce was not.

Overall, the portions are quite large, as 4 out of 6 of us brought leftovers home. I’ve been here 3 times, but only out of convenience. Otherwise, I don’t particularly consider this place to be memorable…but it’s nice. Depending on what you get, you can walk away with a meal as cheap as $9, tax included. Many of their entrees are over $10, however.
