    Enjoyed sharing the spirng rolls before our favorite fish tacos. All the dinner was very good and it always nice to have a good draft beer with dinner. The service was prompt and excellent. The meal is delivered in a timely but not rushed manner and with planning the PAC event is close and easy to get to on time for their show. If you have not eaten here, it is worth a try.

    We made a reservation at 6:15 for two, we weren't seated until 6:30 and those just walking in after us were seated before us. I do not understand that whatsoever. It is beyond annoying and makes me think twice about going here.

    I was dining solo prior to an opera performance. I had the edamame, two sushi rolls and several pieces of nigiri sushi. The sushi was delicious-there are a good variety of creative rolls to choose from. I decided to have the Japanese ice cream for dessert, which was quite refreshing after the firey wasabi. I was fortunate to get a window table to enjoy the beautiful Tulsa skyline at dusk. Service was cordial and, for the most part, efficient, albeit inattentive at times.

    But man - it was bad. Tried a few specialty roles (El Guapo, Geisha's Demise). Both bad - especially the $13.00 El Crappo role. We had two pieces of it. Told the waitress it was bad, and she said something like, "yeah - it's not very good". Beer selection is limited. The best sushi I had was a basic yellow fin spicey role. Stick to the basics if you go there. Avoid the local Okie creations.

    The rolls were decent but nothing over the top inventive. I'm comparing, for example, to Umi Sushi in Seattle...just out of this world. Still quite good, and the ambiance is nice. However, I felt the rolls were overpriced for the quality.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/28/2014
    My friend and I visited Yokozuna on Thursday September 28th we made a reservation for 6:15 but we made it earlier then we thought. We were worried we were going to have to wait but we got straight in there weren't many people there. It took some time to get our drinks but that is nothing compared to the food. We waited 45 minutes after we ordered to get our food. The waitress was apologetic but it didn't help us when we are rushing to get to the concert were attending in fact the opening act had already started by the time we got there. However I will say that the food was decent.

    This is the best sushi place in Tulsa I think. If I compared this to other sushi places in the country it's above average, but for this part of the country it's one of the best with a wide range of Asian inspired cuisine as well as sushi. Really nice sake selection.

    When the girl called to confirm our reservation, I asked specific questions about parking and ease of traffic due to a music festival going on at the same time. The girl was clearly uninformed! We couldn't even get close to the restauant!! She said they had " plenty of parking around them, it was never a problem" haha no! Not a single spot for 5 blocks - and that was 15$! I get it, big music festival. But just be honest, we would come a different day.

    We brought in a group for dinner prior to going to a concert. Our food and drinks were very good, as always. I particularly like the wide variety of Asian genres on the menu. Yokozuna executes all styles very well in our experience. We sampled both a sushi roll and a Thai dish on this particular visit. Our only slight complaint is that our food took quite some time to come out, and we ended up being slightly rushed to get to our show despite allowing an hour and a half for dinner. Our servers could have done a better job communicating with us concerning the length of time our food was taking. I have dined at Yokozuna in the past and never waited so long with a moderate-sized group on a busy night. Other than that, service was great.

    Yokozuna is one of my favorite restaurants!! They offer sushi and other Asian dishes for anyone from people who don't like to try new things to Philadelphia roll lovers to food for the very adventurous. A very popular dish there was sushi that came out on a flaming plate! I had the El Guapo which combines Tex-Mex with sushi and TOTALLY works. Definitely recommend to anyone for a fun night out with friends!!

    This was my 3rd time to visit Yokozuna and have loved it every time! The only complaint I have, and this happened one of the other times, too, is that they didn't have my reservation. The last time this happened I had made the reservation through Open Table as well. They had even called to confirm with me earlier in the day and I called back and said we'd be there. I am unsure what happened. Fortunately, I showed them the email confirmation on my phone and they got a table ready for us within 5 minutes. The reservation was early, though, and I would hate to think how long we would have had to wait had it been an hour or so later. But, they were very friendly about it. Overall, the food and service were excellent, highly recommended!

    Yokozuna has become a mainstay of my trips to Tulsa. The location is great, there's plenty of parking, and the sushi is fantastic. Best of all, though, is the fact that Yokozuna is self-aware enough to understand that it's a sushi restaurant in Oklahoma. The staff isn't judgy, and the menu is a good mix of simple and more complex rolls.

    Server was not helpful or attentive. We sat for about 20 minutes after paying the bill and were not asked if we wanted a water refill. Basically ignored to the point that my company VP of Finance made the statement "I guess they want us to leave". This was not typical of my experience in the past but I had wanted to showcase a locally owned quality restaurant to my company's out-of- town executive and I was disappointed in the service.

We even had a side of Sumo Rice and it was the best we have ever had. The waitress did her job but was not friendly and did not have a smile at all. We had a couple join us for dinner and they liked the food but not the service. However, we will definitely go again!
