Great food with a good feel about the place. Ad the title, this is for me one of the best sushi places in the bedfordview area. The prices are a bit steep but worth the visit and every cent spent.

Founded in 2000, Yamitsuki introduced the concept of Japanese style cuisine, presented to customers via a unique conveyor belt system. The experience was fun and exciting while the food was revolutionary. Yamitsuki became a market leader in sushi restaurants. As our main focus, our sushi bar has the minimalistic traditional Japanese dishes offering timeless perfection, as well as modern American and European influenced sushi dishes. Over time other influences such as Thai and Chinese were incorporated into the menu which led to the development of a fusion Asian menu, offering a Noodle, Teppanyaki and Dim Sum bar, with a variety of oriental soups, sweet and sour dishes and oriental curries. Yamitsuki offers a stylish atmosphere with friendly staff providing our customers with a great place to unwind, relax and to enjoy their dining experience. Yamitsuki is defined as a one stop sushi and oriental cuisine restaurant providing fast paced on-the-move lifestyles with the freshest sushi and a healthy meal. Our freshly prepared delicious food is delivered to our customers via sit-down, take away or delivery. Our warm atmosphere and friendly service, combined with great value, offers an experience that becomes addictive.
