Nipped in for a quick bite to eat around 3:30pm so the lunch queue had died down. After walking in to a near empty restaurant and being served, two guys came in five minutes or so after me. The chef was busy preparing the previous orders food so I waited. I saw the manager walk up to the chef, whisper... More

This is a efficient place in downtown London. Order at the counter and go sit. Quick service and very tasty sushi's. The personal is very friendly and the open kitchen gives you the full Japanese experience.

Craving for Sushi, we googled and found Yoobi a small fast food sushi restaurant. After figuring out on how their menu works, we were soon served with our miso soups and seaweed salad. The tiger prawns, avocado & asparagus and wasabi tuna accompanied by the salmon tataki and tuna sashimi followed soon. Maki portions smaller than other places we know.... More

Yoobi was one of my go to places when in London, but judging by my last visit its has lost its way. The food was average, with stray pieces of rice stuck to the nori, the wasabi overused, and the service lacking. Sorry, it's no longer worth a visit.

Yoobi is around the corner from where I work on a Friday night and I have visited many times, usually when in a rush. The spicy tuna temaki is my favourite and I could eat probably eat about 10 in a row. The amount of spice is just right and it is so fresh and tasty. You can be in... More

Hmm, I'm not sure what the previous reviewer was ordering, but I regularly order temaki from Yoobi Battersea and everyone in our family loves them. Especially the sun dried tomato ones. It is not cheap, but tasty and I never had any issues with quality or freshness. My only problem is that it is only available on certain days/times from... More

A relaxed atmosphere and a quick service will help you taste this delicious food. I have been trying Yoobi several times in the past months and I never get tired of it. I am happy they increased the prices lately as I would go every day otherwise. Definitely one of my favourite places to have lunch in Soho. Enjoy.

I went for a quick bite at this sushi bar with a couple of friends. The sushi was really nice with good value for your money. Service was friendly but not very responsive. The place is really casual and relaxed, and all in all this was a good and relaxed dinner experience.

Description
Launched in April 2012, Yoobi, London’s first temakeria, takes inspiration from Brazil and pushes the sushi experience in an exciting direction. Freshly made temaki rolls, featuring uniquely developed flavour combinations, are served to eat in or enjoy on the go. A range of creative recipes use the highest quality natural ingredients; from their own rice blend to the finest sustainably-sourced fish and fresh wasabi to locally sourced vegetables. The name is derived from the word ‘yubi’, Japanese for fingers, which reflects the ‘hands on’ nature of Yoobi’s food.

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
