nice sushi restaurant and a real gem when it comes to quality of products. Dinner is a quite pricy exercise (12 dressed nigiris at c. £60'ish), however, highly attractive lunch offering with 6 dressed nigiris, a spicy tuna/salmon roll, a miso soup, and a salad...More

The sushi is good and well-executed rather than mind-blowing, and rather small, you'd probably be pretty hungry with just the smallest sushi set. So just for sushi, if I'm honest it don't really deliver if you're missing Japan. What makes it worth a visit is...More

Description
Yashin Sushi is a modern Japanese restaurant centered on "Without Soy Sauce". Of course we can offer the diner as much soy sauce as he or she desires, but our philosophy is that the taste of the fish should be emphasised, not the taste of soy sauce. That is why we brush each piece of individual piece of fish with the right amount of soy sauce and add an accompaniment that will enhance and complement the flavour of the fish without taking it away. As well as our omakase sushi, we also serve a range of authentic and exclusive dishes, such as prize-winning premium Hida Wagyu and chargrilled eel freshly prepared on site.
