It was our first time there and we had a delicious meal in the outdoor area, which is really pretty. Loved the sashimi and rolls especially. Staff were helpful and friendly. Not too expensive: more than we would spend for a casual/everyday dinner, but good value for an occasion. Would definitely recommend.
Great service and quality of food. I come here once a month and it never disappoints.
Yida Sushi was a great dinner - fast service and great quality. Portions were ok for the price but we would definitely return!
Always excellent. Great staff and lovely ambience.
I keep coming back so that in itself is a good story! The sushi and sashimi is good value and the tempura prawns are wonderful. The menu is varied and interesting so something for everyone. The staff are friendly and helpful and very accommodating. We arrived very late for our table but they happily accommodated us. Will be back again soon, no doubt.
The food is excellent here. It wasn’t very busy so lacked atmosphere on a midweek night. However the food and service were great
The sauce with the volcano maki is quite nice.
Rice is quite soggy and tasteless, quality isn’t great so isn’t worth the price.
I loved my visit here. Will definitely return again soon. Absolutely delicious food.
Great service and deliciously authentic Japanese food! Comfortable atmosphere, perfect for dates or catching up with friends.
Good sushi and good service (a bit too rushed maybe but okay) and I will come back for sure.
It's an amazing Sushi place with authentic cuisine. I took a couple of old friends of mine to Yida and we all absolutely loved it. Don't expect this place to be some huge canteen with mediocre food - this is the real deal!
A meal that surpassed any expectation. Lovely food cooked amd presented with great care. Delightful service too.
I went to this place for the first time last week with a friend I hadn't seen in a long time. We were chatting for ages catching up and the waiters left us to it which was nice. I hate it when a waiter will come over numerous times to try and take your order when you are clearly not ready. Once we were ready and we shut our menus, he was over and took the order straight away. The sushi was fantastic and amazing value, we couldn't believe the quality and the value for money. We had a Gyoza portion each to start (veg and chicken), then 3 x sushi platters at 8pcs each and a bottle of wine and it came to £27.50 each. We left feeling full and it was a great evening. Definitely a neighbourhood gem and I will definitely be back! Soft Shell crab and crispy Salmon was the best.
Definitely book a table beforehand - small restaurant. Absolutely delicious food
My partner and I have been going to Yida for a few years. We always love the food. Best salmon sashimi in town. Thank you.
The food is very good and I think it’s generally good value for money. But the staff, though not giving bad service, definitely took its sweet time to take our order or to even collect payment, making me and my kids wait around before I had to remind them that I wanted to order/pay. But it’s really good food. We very much enjoyed it and are definitely planning on going back.
Outstanding food. We were literally surprised at high a standard sushi we were eating. Shame about the atmosphere. Most of the staff attention was going to the endless takeaway/delivery service they provide. One delivery driver was being loud and aggravated and this is all happening in the restaurant, no music playing... There was one nice fella serving us but it just didn't cut above all the rest of the nagatives. Great Sushi though, really great. Next time we'll stay home and order take away!
Having lived in Japan I can honestly say that the good here is genuinely pretty authentic! Delicious
Solid sushi restaurant, consistently good and never too noisy.
We like this restaurant and this was the first time (of many) that we were a little disappointed in the tastiness of both the rainbow sushi and the hand roll. Maybe it was because the owner was away or maybe there was some other reason but the service was lacklustre and inattentive, the food presentation and quality was less good than usual and the ambience for a Saturday night was low. Still, we will try again as it is a good neighbourhood restaurant, though now, inevitably, doing more takeaway (maybe that was a diversion...)
Also, having reserved through Open Table and announced this on arrival, there was little attention to this when we arrived so I was unsurprised later to find my booking had been subsequently deleted by the restaurant - so I rang to get it re-instated!
Hopefully our slightly disappointing experience was a one-off - and don't let this put you off!
Really great sushi place in Islington. Cozy atmosphere with a nice outside terrace in the back. The food is tasty and authentic (so no fish and chips for you, sorry). Choose this place instead of a boring sushi chain restaurant.
Yida is a keeper - The fish is very fresh, the rolls are well constructed, the price is right and the terrace was a bonus.
Overpriced low quality sushi. Beer was not cold, sushis were full of rice.
You can get much much better quality sushi for the price that you are paying
Good service, well-prepared and presented sushi etc. One of the best!
We went as a family of four (2 adults/ 2 kids under 8 years old).
Excellent food and nice surroundings although we had to ask for the pace of delivery of food to be slowed down as it was too quick.
Service was good and friendly.
We will definitely make it one of our neighbourhood favourites although its a little expensive (as most good japanese is) for regular use. We probably over ordered as it was our first visit but the bill came to £90 (of which £10 was alcohol). So you are probably looking at around £20 per head to eat.
This sushi spot is a local gem. Great food, not expensive at all, lovely staff. Even after moving to SW, we still frequent this place, because an alternative for great sushi at this price is hard to find
The food (particularly the spicy edamame) was very good and the service was good too. Will definitely come back.
This is honestly some of the best food I've ever eaten. Took a group of friends here to share this little gem of a restaurant and they were all blown away. They've eaten at Nobu and kurobuta (both very well known Japanese restaurants in london, also about double the price!), they all agree yida sushi is the best. I recommend the scallops for starter, they come in a flaming shell which is very cool! The pork belly and truffle rib eye for main. And some mochi icecream to finish. The tempura and sushi are also fantastic! The decor is nothing fancy, but still nice with Japanese touches. This place is all about excellent food. Enjoy!
Yida delivered delicious food and excellent value as always.
This place is INCREDIBLE! Best sushi I've ever had and so affordable. I cannot recommend this place to you enough. Get amongst it!
Awesome sushi and hot dishes. Good value too.
Top service, very fresh food meticulously prepared. These guys are pro.
Delicious oriental food, imaginative menus, friendly staff.
Great food and service, a hidden gem
This restaurant is great. My favorite sushi spot in London. The service is impeccable and they were very kind to let me come earlier even if I gave a short notice.
Delicious! The maki rolls and sashimi selection, in particular, were excellent.
Service was impeccable and personal without being overly familiar
Really diappointing sushi - the rice was much too sticky, flavourless ingredients, and it was trying to do too many things at once. E.g. The volcano roll came out and we couldn't find the sushi as it was swimming in some sort of mysterious yellow sauce. There are better options even in this modest price range.
The service was the complete opposite - really attentive and friendly. If only the food were as good as the service!
I ate here for the first time last weekend and was so impressed by the quality of both the sushi and the hot food, which in my opinion was also very reasonably priced. I really liked the low key atmosphere and the staff were relaxed and friendly - to top it all off we had a table on the outside terrace at the back of the restaurant, which was the perfect early evening sun-trap.
Delicious food in an un-fussy setting. Excellent value.
