Yoi Sushi

Want to eat high-quality Japanese food? Looking for a high quality restaurant without breaking the bank? Visit Yoi Sushi in flushing, NY.

First of all, You must try the Yoi Sushi deluxe lunch! This is really the best value I have ever seen! Let's take a look at the first thing: Pork Katsu / Chicken Katsu / Roasted Chicken Fillet + 3 Sashimi + 3 Sushi + Tempura x2 / Calamari + Tuna Sushi Roll + Mango Crab Salad + Free Ice Cream / Desserts.



It seems too good to be true at first, can you guess how much this meal cost?


Do you think this is a gimmick? We did too! But the quality is great! Sashimi and sushi are the chef's daily specials, which are very fresh.



Shrimp Tempura are fried golden yellow, which is perfectly paired with pork katsu. The Pork Katsu is thick, with katsu sauce which balances the taste of pork with the tarty taste of the sauce. Mango crab salad is very refreshing and delicious, but also sprinkled with fresh fish roe.



This tuna roll sushi is small and surprisingly delicious. There are seared tuna, spicy tuna, mango and asparagus, avocado and seaweed on the outside, which tastes amazing and crunchy.



The deluxe menu has so many choices for $10.95. In other places the bento boxes doesn’t even compare to the deluxe lunch. Most sushi places start their sets at around $30 which makes us wonder why can’t the other places have similar quality, quantity and be priced so close to Yoi Sushi? The secret is that the restaurant orders directly with fishermen in the Tsukiji market in Japan. By cutting the middle man, giving customers higher quality food at more realistic prices!

Note: The Deluxe lunch and fried chicken / stewed chicken, etc., are offered every day from opening to 4PM, dine in only!



unagi Don $17.99


Unagi don or eel over rice can be one of the most staple foods in Japan. Most restaurants serve Unagi don by putting sliced pieces of microwaved eel on top of white rice followed by a large amount of unagi sauce, which is not the way how it should be cooked. Instead, a large piece of eel should be grilled and placed on top of the rice. In addition to cooking the eel using the traditional method, but they also use harder to find larger eels, since they have more flavor!


The eels are shipped from Japan and after baking, it is over a foot long and nearly 5 inches wide. The larger the eel, the richer the meat with abundant fat. The charred edges lets you know that it is grilled to perfection and should be very juicy and tender.



The best way to eat uniagi don is to let the whole eel rest so that the thick eel sauce, can seep through to the rice. Then stir the rice, together with seaweed and a small piece of eel and eat it. The flavor is amazing, the sweet taste of the sauce, is mixed with the savory taste of the eel and the freshness of the seaweed!



The savory juices from the grilled Eel has a unique taste when combined with unagi sauce, it becomes a thick sauce with salty and sweet flavor. It is worth mentioning that the plating of the unagi don dish has white sauce, which is a coconut sauce, red sauce, which is a cranberry sauce, and garnished with green herbs. The restaurant also has a regular version of unagi don for $10.99

Its hard to tell the difference of Eel quality just by looking at it, but you can taste the difference!
