Yoshino's Restaurant Review

: Old-fashioned Japanese food, by California standards, is what Yoshino’s prepares best. Kimono-clad waitresses serve hot jasmine tea and miso soup. We like to drop in for a plate of hot tempura or a few yakitori skewers. For entrées, go for the fish and tofu dishes. Good sushi and bento boxes, too, are available at this neighborhood spot. Prices like these make it well worth the expectation of encountering a crowd on weekends.
