Always love it here. food is well prepared the only thing that really needs improvement are the salads. the presentation and quality seems so inconsistent with everything else on the menu. salad is terrible.
but miso soup, edemanme, yaki udon, soba, the sushi, and pad thai were great.

Great food, lots of options and some unique options. My date and I split fried pork dumplings and the lobster rangoon, both delicious and would order again! For meals, beef ramen, shrimp tempura maki roll, and the hibachi steak were all delicious. Bar options and service were both excellent! We would return if given the option.

I LOVE the food here. pricing is very reasonable. fresh vegetables cooked perfectly. i was a little disappointed with the street corn apoetizer. last few times i had it, it was grilled with a sweet carmelizarion on the corn. did not have the geilled taste this time. was tastey, but missing the grilled carmelization i have had in the past.
pad thai was done perfectly. miso soup awesome. the included salad never was that good. almost all iceberg lettuce and no dressing options. not a fan.
but overall, this has become one of my favorite restaurants. i alqats go back

Yoki has been one of our favorite locations in the Medford area for the past 3 years. Unfortunately, in the past 6 months the level of attention from service has been horrible. The past 4 times we have been there have not been good service experiences. In our most recent visit there my partner checked in for our reservation, sat at the bar and waited 12 minutes before someone brought menus and asked for drink order. At the end of our dinner our server just disappeared and we had to wait until a bartender came to clear our dishes and ask if we wanted anything else for the evening. Prior to these experiences, service was exceptional.

I didn’t think my waitress needed to take off the paper covering off of my chopsticks or pour soy sauce in my dish for me. They were nice gestures, but I didn’t think it was necessary.

My dining at Yoki was mediocre in every way -- from the food that was served to how it was served to the ambiance in which it was served. The sushi was tasty but nothing different from what I could have gotten in many other restaurants. The service was a little slow -- we had to ask for things more than once. It felt like we had to work too hard. I would not tell someone don't go there -- the experience did not merit that kind of response. I just would not recommend Yoki -- there are too many other places where you can go and have food that stands out a bit more with service that makes you feel cared for.

Food was good, not amazing but good. Vibe was strange, techno music playing and bar area very loud. We were in restaurant area and could hear some patrons from the bar area swearing very loudly multiple times. We had our kids with us so it bothered us. Waiter was fine, not super friendly but got the job done. We could barely hear him due to the techno music and asked him several times to repeat himself.

This was our first visit to Yoki after reading an Open Table email about top ten places to try the day before. We had been to many of the other top restaurants on this list, and decided to give Yoki a try. It was ok, but I don't know that we would run back any time soon. It's a hip place for a younger crowd as the location calls for. The bar/seating was vibrant. It was a snowy Saturday night and at 6:15pm, the dining room had many open seats. The server sat us a table in the doorway to the sushi bar room and left us there alone. We immediately changed our seats. It was as if they didn't really care where they put us with our reservation. Our server was fine. He took our drink and food orders and everything was delivered in a timely manner and with explaination. It was all good, don't get me wrong-but not spectacular as the Open Table review had lead us to think. It was fun to visit the Landing location and see all the restaurants and shopping choices available in the development.

Yoki is our go-to for sushi, and on this last visit they did not disappoint. The rolls were full and flavorful and the sushi had the fresh, "clean" flavor that for me distinguishes really good from just average. We will go again, soon.

Came here on a date. We ordered their oysters and they had to have been an old batch. The sushi we ordered was nothing great. Will more than likely give this spot another shot in the future. Seems like the bar are has some potential.
