YU SUSHI serves the BEST sushi in the LAMORINDA area BAR NONE. The nigri (raw fish on a square of spiced rice) is generous; the maki/norimaki (fish-inside rolls) uses sashimi cuts of fish; the Uramaki (inside-out rolls) are gigantic;

The sushi is always really fresh and they are so nice. The lunch box special is one of the few cheap lunches in Orinda, AND its a really good portion. If you order rolls, be careful, its easy for your bill to get really really expensive!! My suggestion is go for lunch and get the lunch box.

my girlfriend and i tried this place to get out of the normal routine. the customer service was BAD. we ordered water twice, never recieved. i understand on a weekend night, but it should not be an issue to get water!
during our meal, which was pretty good, we never were asked "need anything"? the whole time we were waiting on our water. ;-O

Pros: Food GOOD!

Cons: Service

We gave Yu Sushi a try when they first opened a few years ago and frankly, I am surprised that they are still open given the discerning tastes of the surrounding community. Certainly, they must have found a niche with the inexperienced sushi fan.

Better options abound in the East Bay for marginal more expense. Certainly, the prices are reasonable, but not a value given the quality of the cuts. The maguru was watery, the hamachi fishy and the tomago overly sweet; quite disappointing.

I've never had hamachi that just literally melted on my tongue until I discovered Yu Sushi. The chirashi is an exceptional value, and the variety of rolls is impressive. I won't eat sushi anywhere else in the East Bay any more.
