Restaurant review: Yo! Sushi, St Paul's, London

Yo Sushi is one of those chains that I seem to see everywhere and always make a mental note to visit but alas I never do. So when they got in touch to see if I wanted to review their special Yo! Festival, I jumped at the chance. And now wish I'd tried it sooner! I have definitely been missing out...

Yo! Festival is running until 23rd September and is offering an extra 46 blue dishes at a special price of £2.80, Monday to Friday. What a bargain eh? There's such an incredible range of things to try and it's not only sushi either. Both hot and cold dishes are included in the deal.

So what did we manage to put away? A LOT!

To kick things off we ordered a couple of hot dishes including a delicious soft duck gyoza with an incredible plum sauce - I took to unconventionally dipping my sushi in - and the crisp katsu chicken curry drizzled with a sweet tonkatsu sauce. So far so good! Then we went wild and got a bit greedy picking off the dishes from the conveyor belt. The novelty didn't wear off all evening.

Personal favourites included the fried battered octopus balls with a generous sprinkling of flavoursome fish flakes, enormously addictive salmon chahan filled with crunchy vegetables and chilli powder,  a very filling avocado and salmon hand roll with a sprinkling of sesame seeds and the hoisin duck roll with that plum sauce sent from the heavens above.

The staff were incrediably attentive and we never once felt rushed. The location of St Pauls was amazing - nothing quite like dining next to that impressive cathedral. Finally, the food tasted so fresh given the fact it goes around the belt a fair few times. My boyfriend and I both agreed that we will most definitely book in another trip soon!


  1. I love Yo Sushi! It's one of the very few chains I always go back to. Next time, try their Salmon skin handroll. It's seriously addictive!

  2. Single word of exhortation here: Please don't phony this. In the event that you don't have a craving for welcome your customers a specific day, either in light of the fact that you are having an intense day or on the grounds that you are simply worn out or not in the inclination, at that point ask another person in your staff to do it. empire palace mcknight

  7. The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesn’t disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought you’d have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you weren’t too busy looking for attention.
