Today was the first time I had taken my children and some friends to Yo Sushi, having experienced it myself at Paddington station before. I like that the food is fresh and healthy and generally affordable with some dishes as low as £2. I couldn't quite convince them to have the £2 miso soup with free refills (it was a hot day), but some were able to order their favourite sushi of simply cucumber, supplemented with stir-fry noodles or rice. I also tried one of the new "burgers", which was like a filet o' fish with a pair of lightly toasted rice cakes for the bun. It came with a salad and prawn crackers, and was really delicious. The conveyor belt makes it hard to limit the dishes since they're going around and around like a constant advert, but that's part of the fun of it, too. However, then I got the bill. The restaurant charges £1 for water (which I insisted they take off -- I'm not paying for tap water, and I think it's a law that says you're not supposed to do that if you serve alcoholic drinks). They also charge £8 for the "burger" combo, which was a shocker. Nowhere was the price of the burger advertised, except that its special menu went around the conveyor belt on a red plate. Glancing at the menu, I mistook the orange plate for a red plate (the colour is difficult to discern when placed next to a pink plate in its price list) and thought it cost £3.60. Anyway, the manager and I had a short discussion, and he agreed to adjust the cost. Bottom line: it has its ups and its downs. As long as you keep an eye on what you or your kids are pulling off the conveyor belt, refuse to pay for water, and scrutinize your bill, it's a good place to go for healthy and quick food in the middle of Oxford.
