Once in a lifetime experience. From NYC and been to quite a few really good omakase restaurants. Yoshizumi blows those out of... water. Every, single, piece of sushi is spectacular. Jealous of you Bay Area people! Read more

If you are looking for the best sushi in Bay Area, look no further. We have been to several different omakase restaurants (where... the sushi chef decides what to serve you) in the Bay Area and yoshizumi is the best among all. Yoshizumi serves traditionaledomae style sushi. He focuses on enhancing the taste of the original flavor of each fish, which is also the reason why we lovethis place so much. There is no fancy sauce and no fusion at all but he picks the best fish and all you need is some simplesalt/soy/fresh made wasabi. This is a cozy and initiate restaurant located in downtown San Mateo. It’s easy to find parkingacross the street (we always park at the parking lot across the street). Currently, they check vaccination records and onlyaccept 7 guest per night due to COVID concern, which means it’s harder to get a reservation now. They open reservation 14 daysahead of time and make sure to reserve on time(I believe their reservation opens at 0:00am). Food: This is the best part ofthis place. We are always impressed as soon as appetizer begins and yoshizumi never disappoint us (even not during Japan’styphoon season when the fish selection is limited when we came here last time). This month’s tasting menu is slightlydifferent than last month. Chef yoshizumi changed how he dealt with ankimo and several other appetizers. (We really like thedifference in its taste and texture. We had 7 appetizers and 11 sushi this night. It’s hard to list highlights of the nightbecause each piece is like an art performance and it has its unique and distinguished umami/texture that you can hardly find itin other Japanese restaurants. Sushi Yoshiumi’s pieces may look minimal , but believe me the taste is so unique that we couldnever forget and that is what makes us keep coming back to this place after a while. The most impressive part of the nightis howhe cut the squid to make it so thin but still with so much texture when you eat it. We (my boyfriend and me) are always f Read more

Probably the best sushi in the bay area. Update: Jul 2021 Indoor dining open again at Yoshizumi, but with a reduced capacity.... The sushi is still just as consistently good. Perfectly seasoned and warm rice and gorgeous nato. Service was warm andattentive. Really a true sushi lover's place - uncomplicated perfection. Read more

Ordered online for takeout — Toro uni ikura box & Kaisen new Chirashi box shared among 3 adults) The fish is very fresh and... the flavored rice was good. If you don’t like your rice vinegary with flavor then this bento is not for you. I appreciate howthere was no packets of soy sauce. I always end up trashing it. Meal highlight was the Uni (sea urchin), so good ???? On Yelpthe restaurant claims to be “Edomae” style sushi — “Just rice, fish and fresh wasabi, that is all — YEP, texactly asthe place claims to be. This is one of the better places for Japanese food but at a price. I give it 4 stars because I’mwaiting for the day to eat at the restaurant in person for the full experience — ???? #takeout #sanmateoeats #1starmichelin#nofusion #notfancysushi #nocaviar #notruffle #nogoldenflakes basically #nofrills ????

We booked this place ONE month ahead and it's totally worth to wait. I've heard that this place is hard to make a reservation,... so we expected to have to wait a long time, so please be prepared for that. Yoshi sang is very nice and so patient, he knowswell about all Nigiri, you may ask anything about Nigiri. All ingredients a very simple but fresh, all the cooked mothedcontains the freshness of fish. This place is the best of the year for me. Read more
