Leongatha sushi shop now open

YOUKI’S Japanese Takeaway opened in Leongatha on Tuesday, October 28.
The takeaway shop will open its doors at 11am and close at 3pm. It will be open five days a week from Tuesday to Saturday.
Storeowners Sayuri and Peter Innes opened their first takeaway shop on Phillip Island eight years ago. They have a second takeaway shop in Wonthaggi and a restaurant on Phillip Island as well. Expanding to Leongatha was the next step to meet demand.
“We used to sell sushi through the local cafes in Leongatha,” Sayuri said.
“We found many people from Leongatha came into Wonthaggi to come to our shop and asked about a shop opening in the town. We always wanted a small shop in Leongatha.”
The Leongatha shop on Bair Street will be a retail shop with fresh sushi coming in every day.
Sushi is becoming very popular and Youki’s offer more variety than just fish. They also have a chicken, beef and vegetable range.
“It’s a good chance to have a try,” Sayuri said.
The business was named after their 17 year old son Youki. It is a family business with Sayuri’s sister Miyuki Yamaguchi and brother in law Shin Nagashima sharing in the business as well. Shin is the sushi chef.
Youki’s will take pre orders and offer party platters.
Next year, Youki’s Leongatha will be offering lunches for local schools to give children a healthier option.
There are already 10 schools who order from Youki’s around Wonthaggi and Phillip Island.
