I've discovered the majority of Asian restaurants in Corpus Christi are pan-Asian, meaning they don't really specialize in one country's food. This restaurant states it's a Japanese restaurant, yet they have lots of Korean and Chinese food. The issue with this is when a place tries to cook dishes from other countries, they generally don't come out right, unless you have a well-trained chef. I've lived in Asia for the last 5 years and these pan-Asian places have disappointed lately. People need to realize that not all Asian dishes are the same and have more than soy sauce in common. The galbi was dry and not seasoned/marinated well, the bulgogi was too sweet (and served with large chunks of sautéed vegetables - not traditional), the orange beef was over-fried and mostly batter, and the kimchi was too salty. The chirashi and soft-shell crab roll were spot on. Staff were nice and attentive.

South TX has a lot of ok spots for Asian food, but Yoshi is by far the best. If you are picky about quality sushi, Yoshi is where you want to go when you visit Corpus. It's high quality, and the prices reflect that. But it's worth it. To put it in perspective: there are plenty of decent, cheap Asian restaurants here. If you want the caliber of a special occasion or making vacation memories, though, the ambience and food are top notch. Check their hours before you come, because they close between lunch and dinner. We like to go there later at night. Full bar & wonderful sushi

This place is awesome! I have never once had a bad experience with the staff, the food, or the arrangements. The staff is always pleasant, helpful, knowledgeable and personable. I have been a repeat customer for about 4 years now.This place is well priced, excellent food and is definitely a place to try if you are in town or a local!

My husband and I have been here twice and both times the food was excellent. I think the name of my favorite roll is the Pebble Beach. AWESOME! The servers are friendly and fairly attentive. Both trips however. There were problems with the food coming out and them being out of items. Last time, I got the appetizer and roll I ordered before my husband's soda even came out. I really think they are great, but they need to work on some timing issues in the kitchen. There is a nail salon next door, and my husband complained that when we sat near the bar he could smell the fumes from the salon and it gave him a headache. I couldn't smell it, but I would still advise to sit away from the bar just in case.

Went for a special sushi and sake dinner and was not disappointed. It was a bit pricey, but sushi is expensive and you get what you pay for. The service was fairly quick, even with a full restaurant and one sushi chef out for the evening. We ended up staying a little past closing time and we were not rushed or harassed by the wait staff. I'll definitely return the next time I'm in the mood for some fabulous sushi.
