GREAT GREAT sushi. Terrible service.
It’s a shame. I’ve heard a lot of people complain about service in Austin restaurants, but I don’t usually share their sentiments. However, Yanagi’s service was bad, and worse than that, when confronted about it, they acted clueless as to what went wrong. (Clue: ordered appetizer sea bass at the beginning of the meal, it came out 30 minutes after our second round of rolls, and it wasn’t very good.) But let’s not dwell on how bad the service was and instead feast our eyes on the deliciousness that was hands down the best riceless roll I have ever eaten:
Sexy Roll: Tuna, salmon, white fish, crabmeat, and vegetables wrapped with cucumber (no rice), $11.95
We ordered some other great rolls, included a baked snapper which I think was called a flaming Hawaiian roll:
We ordered four sushi rolls, and each was very different, with great combinations of flavors and very fresh fish. The seaweed salad was huge and delicious, and the meal started off with free miso soup. Score on all food fronts!
