child at YO Sushi!

We popped into IKEA yesterday for drawers, storage, a bathroom cabinet (I’m blaming Marie Kondo) and the kids were amazed at the Pick ‘n’ Mix on offer and for not very many pennies either. They want to spend their pocket money there every month!

After we’d loaded up the car, starving marvins, we drove to nearby massive mall The Oracle which felt more resort than shopping centre thanks to being situated on the banks of the River Kennet with a whopping 90 stores on site including Debenhams and House of Fraser, and not forgetting a zillion restaurants including one of our all-time faves YO! Sushi which is part of HOF.

YO! Sushi pleases everyone in this family of four: my vegan self of course, my pescatarian husband, Peter, and my meat eating sons Oliver and Alexander.

With a recently expanded vegan menu I couldn’t wait to tuck into their new plant-based dishes, and my old faves too of course, and most of us ate vegan food over dinner, bar Xander who asked for a Chicken Katsu Burger for his main course.

A huge restaurant which looked like it fit a hundred, it’s far bigger and more luxurious than our local (but still lovely) Windsor branch, making it a romantic date night spot as much as a quick bite in between shopping treat. More brasserie style interiors than futuristic high end fast food joint, this marks a departure for the brand, and I like it.

Also must not that despite it being busy as it was Saturday evening, the staff were polite, attentive, and the food, delicious, as always.

Shout-out to manager Kamil, the host with the most and his brilliant side-kick Assistant Manager Richard.

So, what did we eat?

What didn’t we eat might be easier to answer. We (maki) rolled out of there (soz)!

    My son is at Uni and this is where he treats himself. Would love to give him the voucher with final exams just weeks away!

    I have never been to Yo Sushi because I assumed they would not have any things I could eat. Useful to know that they do in fact cater for vegetarians and vegans.

  3. Monica Gilbert

    The Oracle is one of our nearest shopping centres, but we’ve never made it to their Yo Sushi. Really need to rectify that. It’s always so hard to choose where to eat while there because you’re spoiled for choice.

  4. Natasha Dodds

    My hubby and I have never been to Yo!Sushi before, but are desperate to try it! This would be an awesome date-night win!

  5. Claire Sen

    I love sushi but have only ever had it from whole foods. I’ve never been to Yo Sushi! I’ve heard it’s great fun there with delicious food, so I’d really enjoy a visit 🙂

  6. Laura Walker

    I have never actually been to a Yo Sushi even though I love sushi so I’d love to try

  7. Neha Chauhan

    The menu looks so yummy and so many choices. Plus I live in Reading and have never been here before. Thank you for the chance.

  8. Clare Hubbard

    It’s been too long since I have been to yo sushi, this would be such a treat!

  9. Lorna Ledger

    Never been, but love Sushi, and £50 should go a long way for me, my daughter and OH to having a great old time!

  10. Rennene Hartland

    I love sushi and it’s my birthday at the end of the month so it’s the perfect treat

    I’d love to take my daughter and we could have a girly catch-up 🙂
