Our History

“YATAI” in Japanese means “CART”

In Japan, many years ago, my great, great Grandparents use to load up a wooden cart every morning and push it to their favorite location where they would set-up a small stand and serve sushi until Pops got too drunk to serve customers. At the end of the day, they would pack up and head home satisfied in the hard work they had done and appreciative customers served.

In keeping with this tradition, YATAI SUSHI specializes in “Mobile Sushi Service”.

Whether you are planning an intimate gathering with a small group of friends or a large fundraiser, call YATAI SUSHI, we can accommodate any party size.

For over eighteen years, we have been traveling to homes, offices, banquet halls, and parks offering the finest quality sushi with friendly, personable sushi chefs catering to every need.

Our customized LIVE SUSHI BAR will be the talk of any party, and your guests will long remember how fun it was to work with our chefs to create a customized sushi dinner just for them.

We used Yatai Sushi for a birthday party. They arrived early, set up and were ready to serve at the agreed upon time. We had a sushi bar and tempura bar, and our guests loved it! We would totally recommend Yatai Sushi. Having a sushi and tempura bar is a novelty and our guests were super impressed and enjoyed every bite.

After trying their sushi at an event, we had them cater our lunch at my office and it was delicious! My boss always raved about how their spicy ahi is the best and I finally got the chance to eat it! She was right! I enjoyed how the spicy ahi isn’t drenched in mayo and saracha sauce.

We hired Yatai Sushi for a private event at a local restaurant. Due to the growing number of guests, we decided we needed to hire a caterer to supplement the venue’s food offerings. Yatai Sushi practically outshone the venue’s fine dining dishes! Yatai arrived right on time to setup their awesome sushi booths. There were two sushi chefs behind each booth, quickly hand-making delicious sushi rolls for all of our guests. They wear the traditional Japanese yukata, for an added touch! Prompt, yummy, and worth every penny – I’d definitely recommend them for your catering needs!

I’ve been using Yatai sushi for 3 years now for all my parties and they’ve always been top notch, professional and on time. Micah was my chef for a majority of my parties and I look forward to get him for 2016. It took him about 15 minutes to setup. All the normal nigiri and rolls including. Hamachi, maguro, Tako, and salmon.

We hired a live sushi chef from Yatai sushi. He was great! Koichi arrived early and set up quick. He cut and prepared everything at the house and he was personable and nice to the guests, etc. Sushi was great tasting and I have no complaints. I would definitely use him and Yatai sushi again for my next event!

Brandon was awesome – came out over an hour early to set up, made sushi fast, really nice guy. Great quality fish & sushi. Allowed us to change out some menu items to make it kid-friendly. Probably the most reasonably priced private sushi vendor…no sacrifice in quality or service. Thank you Yatai Sushi!!

For the price, sushi was well worth it! Flexible caterer, good quality, generous portions and friendly staff. So while I was skeptical about their mobile catering at first I was delightfully surprised of their honest/genuine assistance in helping us determine the overall requirements and cost.

Yatai Sushi is awesome! I hired them to cater a small (25 people) party at my home. The sushi chef arrived early and set up a professional sushi cart on my back lanai and donned a yukata, Before the party started he even asked if we were expecting children at the party (we were) and offered to add spam sushi to the menu if we had a can of spam handy. He added his own sauce and it was a hit with the kids. The sushi rolls he made were fresh and delicious… towards the end he started making “super rolls” as we called them- delicious off the menu concoctions of the ingredients he brought. During times when there was no line, he made lots of sushi so no one would have to wait when they came up! The chef was friendly and awesome. Worth every penny. My husband and his friends can be “sushi snobs” and they were raving about Yatai! Can’t wait to have an occasion to hire them again. 🙂

I’ve used Yatai Sushi to cater many parties at my home and they have always been professional, on-time, and delivered an excellent product of high-quality fish. I highly recommend them for your catering needs. Todd is very easy to work with
