Press Release: Yo Sushi, York

I don't normally like to put up press releases, unless I've either been invited to go to the opening, or I've been sent the product to review.  But I'll make an exception with this one - because I'm really excited about it opening.  I adore Yo Sushi, it's one of my favourite places to eat when in Leeds.  I know it shouldn't be, with it being a chain, and I should be supporting local independents.... but I love watching the dishes go round that conveyor belt and then making a grab for one as it comes past!


YO! Sushi is delighted to announce the opening of its newest restaurant in the heart of York.

Set within the old Ponden Mill retail outlet, the finishing touches are being put in place at the

2 storey, 3000 sq ft restaurant on Church Street, ready for the grand opening on Thursday 18th

October at 12noon.

YO! Sushi has something for everyone, with a range of over 90 hot and cold Japanese inspired

dishes customers can choose from a variety including delicious soups, Yakisoba noodles and

Katsu Curries along with some of their signature sushi and sashimi dishes ranging from £1.80

to £5 - as well as a wide range of Japanese beers, a carefully selected wine list, Sake or soft

drinks to accompany your meal.

Simply choose a seat next to their world famous ‘kaiten’ conveyor belt, take a dish, eat and pay

– it really is that easy. Or you can order from the menu and watch your dish be prepared in

front of your very eyes in just a few minutes.

The new restaurant is located on the busy Church Street and designer Philip Watts has

described its unique design as “a beautiful building in a conservation area packed with great

restaurants so we wanted to design something that felt peaceful, modern and minimal and to

use materials that were in influenced by the existing building. Then we added a few YO! Sushi

touches to give the restaurant a new and fresh feel that gently nods to our original urban Tokyo


Laura McMahon the new Assistant Manager, has lived in York since she was 6. She said:

“York has always been a great place for restaurants and I’m delighted to be involved in

bringing YO! Sushi’s fantastic range of Japanese inspired food to the City I grew up in.”

To celebrate this brand new opening, YO! Sushi has planned lots of fun activities to encourage

locals to join in the fun that YO! Sushi intends to bring to this cultural and historic city. YO!

Sushi’s friendly casual dining experience has something for everyone, making it the perfect

place for a quick bite or a leisurely dinner with friends and family.

YO! Sushi York will be open from Thursday October 18th at 12.00. Opening times will then be

Friday - Saturday 12pm-11pm and Sunday - Thursday 12pm-10pm.
