What a fantastic experience! I had been suggested I reserve seats for the teppanyaki section, and I'm glad I did. The restaurant was full by the time we were seated at around 7pm. This was our first visit and we're always very critical of restaurants....More

Our son treated us with a meal at Yamitsuki. The sushi was the best we ever had and so was the cocktail. Thank you Yamitsuki for making our dinner special.

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.
