Best Japanese anywhere in East Bay.
I have tried almost every Japanese restaurant in East Bay area. And most of them were such a dissapointment. I didn't expect much from them also. Me and my husband tried Tempura, Sashimi and Teppanyaki. They were SO good. I used to live in Osaka, Japan and I tried all kinds of Japanese food over there. I think I know the standard. Yokohama is the only place that has the same standard as traditional Japanese dishes in Japan. And it was really nice we could taste a real Japanese food without flying here in El Cerrito. They remimded me of my grandma's cooking. And the atmosphere was really peaceful. If you want to experience real Japanese dishes, visit Yokohama. You won't be dissaponted. And we will be there soon again !
Something Very Right -Still after Twenty Years.
This place has been popular and doing business at the same location for over twenty years. IT IS delicious. Traditional Japanese dishes that were awseome; and new to me, served up in a seductive cozy environment. The original owners recently traded chef?s hat to the new owner who has infused and expanded the menu. The very affordable soups, Nigiri, appetizers are gorgeous and will tantalize every taste bud for each and every diner. Now a full complex in taste and texture sushi menu, and fresh fish daily, along with and extensive lunch box menu. Long term fans and friends spoke so highly of YOKOHAMA, I ventured through the tunnel. Wowed by the Creamy Hot-Sweet Crab Puffs was the beginning. The extensive SAKE offered, has converted me to being cold SAKE drinker. Good Bye Red Wine. California Asian Cuisine has converted me to the West Coast, Goodbye New York.
