Being a local, and a lover of sushi, Tokyo House in Rutland is our go-to sushi joint. But their menu is limited for other foods. A group of couples were heading out for dinner, most of which are not sushi fans, so we opted for the hibachi tables at Sushi Yoshi. The chef was awesome and entertaining. The filet was tender, scallops and shrimp awesome, veggies rice and noodles cooked perfectly.
The sushi on the other hand, just doesn't taste fresh. It was strong and fishy, with a very distinct pungent odor which usually means old, in my opinion as someone who's eaten sushi all over the place. The presentation was lacking and it had a look of being rushed and thrown together. Far too much "special sauce" was gooped over the rolls as well, overpowering the fish, the masago and tobiko, veggies and rice, which I suppose was the point if the fish is too strong.
Back to the hibachi - this place caters to out of staters who don't think twice about paying $32 for ten thin slices of beef mixed with $4 of veggies and rice. I suppose you're paying for the atmosphere and entertainment, not the food. Very tasty, but Very overpriced.
