“Excellent Japanese restaurant!”
Reviewed 13 October 2012

This little Japanese restaurant is a real gem! Truly authentic Japanese cuisine (which is not the case with a lot of Asian restaurants I've been to on the Cote d'Azur). Very cozy little palce, with few tables. And the prices are very reasonable as well (it has to be said though that the portions are on the small side).

“What a find!”
Reviewed 17 September 2012

Have lived locally for 7 years, and only just found this restaurant on Tripadvisor!
Nice little street cafe atmosphere, very authentic Japanese lady running it and food was just as authentic!!
Clearly all home cooked and prepared to order, the marinated sashimi was excellent and the soba's fabulous right through to the incredible green tea icecream.
Have visited Japan numerous times and was amazed to find cooking this good on the Riviera. Going back shortly to try the other half of the menu which if you were to gripe is a little limited in choice particularly in terms of sushi and sashimi as restaurant concentrates on real Japanese cooking rather than the "Yo Sushi" sliced fish variety, but still plenty to keep you entertained for multiple visits.
Highly recommended, will not disappoint unless you are expecting a "sushi bar".

“Lovely authentic evening”
Reviewed 8 April 2012

I went to yoko with my girlfriend based on the reviews on here and was not disappointed. The restaurant is small and compact (we were lucky to grab a seat as the whole place was nearly reserved). The waitress was lovely and helped with deciphering the menu. For the price he food was fantastic, I had a pork katsu dish and my girlfriend had a sushi platter. Follow that up with dessert that tasted as good as it looked. Even had some sake thrown in for added authenticity!

“Japanese Food for foreign taste”
Reviewed 20 January 2012

Nice and friendly little restaurant. However, we are greatly disappointed with the food.

The SWEETNESS of the food we ordered killed all taste buds to the point that you couldn't savour the actual ingredients used. Being a foodie and interested in cooking myself, I know that if fresh ingredients are used, you can't go wrong. Not so for most of the Asian restaurants here, it's just way too sweet in a lot of dishes!

The sushi platter we ordered is OK, not outstanding though. I suggest if you go, order tempura, at least it is not soaked in sweetness.

I will never go back to this restaurant again.
