I absolutely love sushi and go to many different places to try their sushi. I was very disappointed to say the least when I went here. I called ahead to find out what time they closed (it was 9:00 PM) and the lady said 10 PM so off we went. We arrived at 9:10 PM, were seated at the sushi bar by the waitress/hostess (who seemed to be the only one there who was friendly). The sushi chefs (there were 2) did not greet us but rather complained the whole time (in Korean - not realizing I am Korean and could understand their every word) how they wanted to go home since they were so tired. When we asked about particular rolls, the answers we received were short and rude. We put in one order and left by 9:40 PM and during the entire time, they complained, were rude and to top it off, the salmon was not so fresh, the salmon egg sushi was very skimpy and the rolls were not pressed hard enough so each individual piece kept falling apart. This is by far THE WORST SUSHI experience I have had to date! Unbelievably a horrible experience. Word of advice to the sushi chefs/owners ... if you want to go home at 9 PM, then CLOSE at 9 PM ... DO NOT make the customers feel bad!!!

You seem to have to flag down the waitresses in this tiny joint to order something. The sushi is definitely good, and the specialty roll selection is limited but enough. Try the tempura ice cream, it is to die for! During rush hours, the 2, sometimes sushi chefs can't handle the flow, but otherwise, just enough rice and lots of the fresh fish!

ACYE is pretty typical in Vegas these days. Even the loyalty cards that earn you a free meal seem to be the norm. But Yoko does a better job than most. The cuts of fish are never skimpy. You know it is fresh if you go at lunch because they are always filleting these beautiful whole fish for the rest of the day. The rolls are creative and tasty and the appetizers are quite good too. I only have two problems with them. The chefs seem rather annoyed if you ask for anything special, even from regulars who eat there every other week. Also they are extremely strict with their you must finish everything you order. If you decide to be adventerous and try something you aren't sure of and then not finish it because it doesn't taste good to you, they will charge you as much as an additional $15 for "wasting" food. I prefer Sage at Craig and Rainbow, but Yoko works too.
