The prices are outrageous, the service is spotty and they don't honor their groupon and livingsocial deals

We arrived rather late and a bit desperate for dinner and were completely satisfied at Yen Sushi. We enjoyed the baked mussels off the happy hour menu along with some nice unfiltered sake. The rolls were huge and my chirashi bowl was plentiful. Service was incredibly attentive and the price was very affordable. All in all, it was a good... More

We arrived at the end of happy hour and quickly ordered Edamame, Sushi, Combo Tempura. It was all so tasty and fresh! There was a great wine and sake list! We enjoyed some wine. Friends came and met us. The staff were very attentive! It was a great time!

Yen has been updated to include more tables and add a level of brightness and fun. The outdoor seating is always a great option as well as the sushi bar. There are numerous options of sushi, sashimi, creative rolls, entrees and noodles.. The food is fresh and good.

If you enjoy authentic sushi this is an excellent place for the more common delicacies. They do not serve the more exotic sushi and sashimi one might find in Japan but they partially make up for that shortcoming with very good tempura and yakitori. Atmosphere is pleasant, place is spotlessly clean, and service is excellent.

We went for lunch on a weekday afternoon. There were only two other people in the place and yet it took forever for the waitress to stop standing there talking to the other waitress and come get our order. Then we had to flag her down again to bring our drinks. Sushi was decent, but nothing that makes it worth... More

Just stopped by for a snack appetizer and a drink during happy hour. Nice outdoor seating, dogs welcome, fast and friendly service and decent prizes. We had a tempura app (2 shrimp 3 veggies), shrimp tempura roll, and a crispy tuna roll, a glass of wine and a couple of Sapporo beers. Nice place, happy that we stopped there.

Unfortunately, this is the worst sushi in Belmont Shore. The staff is very friendly and that's about all that I can say in terms of a positive review. The sushi bar itself is very small and the rest of the seating is uncomfortable and very confined. The sushi is subpar and tastes very fishy and not fresh. They had the... More
