I visit the establishment regularly and have never been disappointed. Eunice is my preferred waitress as she always knows exactly what I'd like and can recommend the best accompaniments to my selected dish. I think that by now I have had everything on the menu. Choosing a favourite is just not possible. The sushi is of a very high quality... More

Tinashe the server was a little more animated on this visit. We once again ordered the Tempun Yaki steak and Prawn Tempura. The food IS consistently good and is probably the only reason why I keep coming back. The rest room left a little to be desired and while it was fairly clean although the door into the restroom could... More

Just around the corner from home and eating here at least one a month, I have found the takeaways also very good. My favourites include the Love boat consisting of Prawn, Beef, Chicken, Duck and Vegetables served in a birds nest with BBQ brown sauce and a good hint of Chilli. The Singapore Noodles for under R60 consisting of Chinese... More

I have been to Yo a few times. The food is consistently good. Crispy Beef is one of my favourites. Good service too. Just remember that the date on the Tsing Tao beer is the production date, not expiry date! Overall, well worth a visit of you are looking for good food and good value.

We visited YO last night and I ordered a bottle of their house red which was very nice and not too pricy at R69. My husband had a couple of Castle's. He ordered Tempun Yaki steak which he rated at 9/10. I ordered a Prawn Tempura starter which was delicious. We were served by Tinashe who was fine but did... More

I have reviewed Yo before and I am sure I will review again. Although not in my suburb, we see this as a local. Friends live in the area and we often pop over to Yo for a bite. Sushi is always great and recently discovered is the Salt and pepper prawns.. Not sure why they called Salt and pepper... More

Our previous visit here was about a year ago, no complaints whatsoever. Unfortunately I cannot say the same this time. We (8 adults and my 2 daughters) ordered a variety of starters, side dishes, and for the sake of efficiency our main courses too. Starters arrived, my daughters (9 and 13) had ordered the starter-assortment which quite frankly for them,... More

The place was a bit empty and the service thus surprisingly slow, but the food was outstanding! We had a nice window seating with view towards Table Mountain. My husband ordered the green chicken curry (his all-time Asian favourite) with coconut rice and I opted for the cashew nut chicken with egg fried rice. The main meal portions were very... More

The sushi is good. The venue can accomodate huge groups. Cleanliness has been an issue (dishes not correctly washed on ocassion) but in general you should not be disappointed. Atmosphere is lacking though - cavernous space and fairly bright.
