Yo! Sushi has opened a second venue in Edinburgh (three inc. airport)  of their Japanese inspired fast food chain and is serving up food on the restaurant's iconic 'kaiten' conveyor belt.

Situated on the coveted corner of Princes Street and Hanover Street, overlooking The Mound, Princes Street Gardens and Edinburgh Castle, the new 65-seat restaurant will create over 25 new jobs in the local area and has been designed to appeal to busy workers, shoppers, families and visitors to the capital.

The core management team all have a sushi background and the kitchen will be led by YO! Head Chef of two years, Justin Cook, and Mailin Brooke as General Manager who has been with the company for nearly five years.

Diners can choose from over 80 hot and cold dishes including soups, rice or noodle-based dishes, salads, tempura and hot classics like  Chicken Katsu Curry, Salmon Teriyaki and Yakisoba noodles.

Vanessa Hall, CEO at YO! Sushi said: "This will be our second restaurant in this beautiful and historical city, and we are convinced that our extensive inspired menu and unique concept in a fun environment will bring great colour and theatre to this famous Edinburgh street. From our new winter warming, great value for money Super Mega Bowls like our Spicy Seafood Don to traditional sushi - Princes Street is in for a real treat and we look forward to welcoming the local community through the doors from December."
