Yuzu Asian Cuisine is a family-owned restaurant offering authentic Japanese sushi, hibachi, and Thai food in Lancaster, PA. They are all about providing fresh, and natural dishes to satisfy all tastebuds of their customers. Their main specialty cuisines are Japanese, and their main ingredients include fresh seafood, fruits, and vegetables. The flavors of the dishes you'll find on their menu vary by cuisine.

Excellent experience

My husband and I recently ordered takeout from Yuzu for the first time, and it was an excellent experience. The food was prepared quickly, and it tasted amazing.

As an appetizer, we went with Beef Negimaki, which is thinly shaved beef rolled with scallion. We couldn't resist ordering Thai Spring Rolls as well. Whether it's takeout or dining in, few things beats crispy vegetable spring rolls with lime sauce.

For our entrees, we settled on Thai Crispy Pepper Chicken, a deep-fried chicken topped with bell pepper, cilantro, peanuts, and a spicy sauce on the side. In addition, we ordered a Red Curry to split. This was a vegetarian dish with snow peas, pineapple, cilantro, lemon leaves, potato, and tofu. It's not often I order takeout where every single item tastes outstanding.

There were so many items on the menu I wanted to try out. Next time, I'm going for their sushi or the hibachi meals. They have a large selection of both, and Yuzu uses only fresh seafood which I believe makes it a good spot for sushi and sashimi.

Convenient location

The prices are moderate and you get a lot of food for your money at this place. Its location is convenient, close to the Amtrak station in Lancaster City. It's easy to park and get in and out if you're ordering takeout. The restaurant is well-liked, with 4,7 stars out of 316 reviews on Google. According to some of the reviews, the $10 Bento Box is a popular option. Some of the items in the box often include sushi rolls, a spring roll, and rice.

After being closed for indoor seating for a few months during the COVID-19 pandemic, Yuzu Asian Cuisine has now opened up the restaurant for customers to finally be able to dine in at the Lancaster City location. The restaurant is spacious with a cozy vibe and a casual setting for a date night or dinner out with friends.

Address: Yuzu Asian Cuisine is located at 12 Mcgovern Ave, Lancaster, PA 17602
