If you are new to Yo! Sushi the concept is that you pick mini bowls of Japanese food such as sushi, edamame, macha cake, gyoza etc from coloured bowls off a moving conveyor. The bowls are priced by colour ranging from about 2 to 6 pounds each. When you are there you just want to try and eat everything and... More

We've been a couple of times and it doesn't appear to exactly follow the same routine as Yo!s For example, the cheaper Monday night offer wasn't running and they have a limited menu which doesn't have some of the fried dishes. No big deal if you really want raw fish, but a bit of a shame if you're not. Staff... More

Great place for quick relaxing lunch. As nice as the concept is, its better to ask them to make stuff fresh as its usually hasn't been spinning around for 30 minute! If you have any food allergies just as for the "book" which lets you know what you can eat and can't! Staff are really friendly.

My daughter absolutely loves the Yo Sushi concept and so we HAD to go! The waiting on were helpful and very polite. They made a huge fuss of my daughter and even created a dish just for her. So nice to get such great service. Thank you.

This is a very good location to meet friends for a quick bite to eat before a performance or show at the Royal Festival Hall in the Southbank Centre or to kick back and relax with some friends in one of the comfy booths. Warning the sumo size portions are large!

Staying in Southbank

Neighbourhood Profile
Big time attractions such as the London Eye and a thriving theatre scene (compliments of the National Theatre and the Young Vic) are but a few of the reasons that Southbank is such a collectively cherished part of town. With plenty of family friendly activities and venues lined up along a pedestrianized river bank between Westminster Bridge and Waterloo Bridge, visitors can always expect a casual and festive atmosphere. On top of all the fun stuff to do at Southbank is the opportunity to simply sit back and admire photo-op views of iconic landmarks like Parliament and St Paul's Cathedral, just on across the Thames.
