Yelper Akasha J., who reviewed Yogi's Grill, wrote, "They make wonderfully fresh and simple sushi — definitely not fancy or a nigiri kind of place but great for simple rolls."

Carlos A. noted, "...Decent portions, assembled beautifully, and it's all cooked perfectly using good-quality ingredients. There's a little bit of everything here: Sushi rolls, rice or veggie bowls, poke and more."
