The conveyor belt, the convivial atmosphere, the kitsch branding – these are the things that keep people flocking to Yo! Sushi, but this is no place for sushi nerds. Still, it’s a fun place to dine and offers a gentle introduction to sushi for the uninitiated. There’s a wide range of fishy options, from salmon sashimi to soft-shell crab hand rolls, and a specials menu that includes the likes of salmon and tobiko tartare with a zesty coriander dressing. Vegetarians and fish-fearers are also catered for, both on the belt and with more substantial noodle and rice dishes on the à la carte menu. The dizzying array of choice can be overwhelming, in fact – diners may want to pore over the set-price menus while sipping from their bottomless miso soup (with unlimited free refills). Individual plates are priced by colour and the cost can, quite literally, stack up, so check online offers before you visit.

Great basic fare for filling your tummy before hitting the town (or in our case, London Cocktail Week). It’s the Maccy Ds of the sushi world; quick, easy, convenient but not as nice as if you made it at home or let’s face it, went to a slightly more upmarket Asian establishment. You’re never quite sure how long those brightly coloured dishes have been trundling past you a la the Generation Game, so if you order off the menu you’re assured freshness, even if it does take longer than it really should for a near empty venue. Katsu curry is always a good bet and the steamed buns interesting although did feel like an Asian version of the humble hamburger (going back to the Maccy D theme). Go here for decent food and not much of an experience.

Tip: don’t order the sumo pots unless you’re aiming for (or already have ) the sumo look.
