From its refined, Japanese decor down to its skilfully prepared dishes, Yokoso brings the traditions of Japan to London’s Canary Wharf. With pale wood and bamboo details, red lanterns and tatami mat-topped benches, Yokoso is a perfect balance between tradition and modernity. As well as Japanese favourites like sushi, sashimi, kushiyaki and tempura, Yokoso also offers a Korean menu. We recommend trying the buta kimchi (stir-fried sliced pork belly with kimchi and a spicy sauce served with tofu), some traditional bibimbap served with miso soup or the Korean BBQ Set. Located on the ground floor of Orion Point on Crews Street, Yokoso’s central location makes it popular with tourists and city workers so be sure to book ahead to snag a seat!
It was very good. The food is great and nice people. Very quiet atmosphere. Not many people crowded. The vocalno sushi is amazing with hot melt sauces. Recommended.
I love this Japanese/ Korean restaurant. Having lived & worked in Japan for several years, I really try and seek out authentic restaurants and this one is one of them. Luckily, I live in the area so when I came across Yokoso, I was delighted and I have been going here since it opened. Tucked away in one of the residential buildings on the Isle of Dogs, easily accessible by foot, bus and car, this restaurant is superb for adults and families, now that I'm a family of four. The staff are friendly, menu extensive and food authentic. I've tried many dishes on the menu from their sushi & sashimi's, tempura and bibimbaps; my all time favourite is the agedashi tofu - which is my litmus test (yes, I am a scientist). If a Japanese restaurant can't get a staple like agedashi tofu right, they won't pass the test. Yokoso does with flying colours.
Great food, and great environment, really friendly staff. We really enjoyed our evening, and will surely be back again. Roka's cocktail is really good, love it.
