    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.

    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!!

    We were in town for a concert and were looking for somewhere to eat close to the BOK center. This place is an easy walk from the BOK center, and the service was excellent. I made the reservation about an hour before we got there, but we were seated right away. The service was great, the drinks were good, and the food and dessert were excellent.

    Not worth the money. They use only imitation crab meat in their sushi rolls. The pad thai at Pei Wei is superior & cheaper. The tofu was not even good. The best thing was the Blue Dome roll by far.

    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!

    We celebrated my birthday in style while dining at Yokozuna. Our waitress was extremely friendly; she was very understanding when a drink was ordered, but not liked by the orderee, and quickly replaced it. She made my birthday dinner fun and everyone in the group enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Good job, Yokozuna!

    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!

    Was entertaining an out of town business associate. My wife and I have visited Yokozuna a couple of times and thought that this would be a great place to take our guest. We like the downtown location and the ambiance of the restaurant. Of course the sushi is also a favorite of ours. The "Hot Mess" is our favorite. Drinks and food were great. Server was not as friendly. Pleasant but she could have benefited by smiling. She lacked enthusiasm about the menu when we asked for suggestions from both the drink and food menus. Overall it was a positive dining experience and we will be back.

    The food of course was amazing however, the service was lacking this time. I'm sure it was a busy night being Saturday and we could tell she was over it but there's no excuse to come off irritated and no excuse to be there for over 2 hours for dinner. Our reservation was for 9:30 and didn't leave until 11:45. Being a former server I understand the frustrations of being at work late but customer service is what you sign up for. Wear a smile and remember you're making money the longer that you're there.

Not only was the food properly prepared with exceptional flavor, but our Waiter was informative and prioritized his duties/resposibilities to fit our tables needs. My guests were comfortable within the restaurant walls and were able to attain a very pleasurable experience! The variety of dishes offer a wonderful meal to fit almost anyone's fancy. Don't miss out on a chance to experience Yokozuna's food, sake, and Import beers. The place is clean, organized and customer friendly. May your future visits be just as fulfilling as mine. Thanks

    Making reservations is definitely the way to go. Walking in the door and seeing people waiting to be seated is enough to make anyone pause, even more so if you have tickets to a show later (we did). But our table was ready and waiting, our server was prompt to take our order, and the food arrived quickly. Our PuPu Platter for 2 had more than enough food for 4 people and then some. Our server was very good about keeping our drinks filled and being attentive to our needs (one of our companions picked around something on her plate; when boxing the dish, the server was mindful to omit that from the box).

    This was our first time to Yokozuna and we enjoyed it. Initially, we made reservations for 8:00 pm because the 7:00 pm slot was filled up. Yokozuna called us back and was able to accommodate our 7pm reservation preference. There was only a 10 minute wait once we got there. The food was great. My daughter ordered a curry dish; my husband ordered a spicy chicken and I ordered fish tacos. All was delicious and we had leftovers. We agreed that we would be back again to try other dishes and dessert next time.
