Best Sushi – Yoko's Bend is a Hellarad place for sushi...
Worst sushi and service EV ER. – HORRIBLE. In every way possible.
Where do I even start. We were seated at the bar--which is one of the last times we were ever paid attention to the whole time we were there (even though we were the ONLY people in there)
We ordered about 5-6 different rolls, I dont even remember which ones they were, not a very good selection compared to other sushi places.
The rolls were miniature--same price as other sushi places rolls but literally half the size and sometimes even half the amount as well. It was bizarre. One of the rolls I had tasted like a dorrito or a taco....not really what Im lookin for when im eating sushi. The rice was sticky, the seaweed was strong tasting, all the rolls we had tasted pretty much the same.
Our plates literally piled up in front of us. No one took them away even though the waitress and the manager were standing right near us flirting the whole time we were there, talking about everything under the sun including starkist tuna. Yes, anything but doing their jobs for these people. We waited and waited to get our check, horrified by the service the waitress got no tip, we left unsatisfied and still hungry yet paid the same price we would at Mio.
This is a trendy seeming sushi place that has nothing but location to back itself up. Horrid.
I cannot think about one thing good about this place...seriously...i tried to give it 0 stars but it wouldnt let me--DONT GO HERE GO TO MIO OR SOMEWHERE ELSE IF U LIKE SUSHI!!!
Disappointing – If you've ever been to a real sushi bar or restaurant this place will disappoint you. First, the servers are not nearly as polite or respectful. They are not rude at all, just nothing like a real Japanese restaurant. For instance, they do not refer to you as "sir" or pour your sake when they visit your table. :-) Second, bring your own chopsticks. They only use splintery, fused together ones. Third, they refuse to carry wheat-free soy sauce even though the server claimed that "many people ask for it." Fourth, and most damning is that I ordered albacore sashimi and the "chef" gave me seared ahi. When I told my server, they assured me that it was sashimi. Ha! Never go here.
Good sushi, slow service – I must have gone in on an off night because there was only one person making the sushi and the place was packed!!! We were seated right away, placed our order but hat to wait about 40 minutes to get our food. I felt bad for the poor guy making the sushi because he was all by himself back there! The food waas good but the wait was too long.
grumpy – It's nice to get something different here in the middle of Oregon. Fresh sushi cruisin' around a motorized conveyor is just what a 'gotta-go-now' individual needs. If you have time, there's also some great ramens and tempura dishes...I love this place !!
