YO! announces opening date for YO! TO GO BATH

Iconic restaurant group YO!, famed for its hand-crafted sushi and fresh Japanese food, will introduce its second YO! TO GO in Bath on Friday (2 April). 

Situated on Brunel Square (Vaults 1-3), the exciting new ‘grab and go’ format offers the perfect solution for peckish commuters and visitors, or those looking for a quick and healthy meal during their lunch break. 

The menu will feature a range of sushi sets freshly rolled each day, including YO! classics like the Sushi Sharer and Crunchy California Roll, as well as a selection of hot, fresh street food like the ever-popular Ramen, Katsu Curry and Gyoza. With 13 different vegan dishes on the menu, there are plenty of meat and fish-free options for customers to enjoy. 

To celebrate the launch, YO! will be giving away 100 free click & collect meals, up to the value of £20, on 31 March. Participants will have to send an email with ‘WIN BATH’ in the subject line to hello@yosushi.com with their full name and the time they’d like to collect their meal. The first 100 lucky people to email will then receive a code which they can use to place an order.

YO! TO GO Bath will also see YO! launch its first ever takeaway breakfast range, featuring ‘build your own’ breakfast baps drizzled with tonkatsu, banana and agave porridge, yogurt and berries and a selection of pastries. What’s more, coffee will be supplied by local coffee roastery Dusty Ape, offering customers a flavoursome speciality blend to enjoy alongside their breakfast.

Visitors to YO! TO GO Bath will be able to order using a QR code and pay through a digital menu on their phone. There will also be QR codes on tables in the outside dining area, allowing customers to enjoy YO! al-fresco as the warmer summer days arrive. 

To avoid queues, customers can also order ahead and click and collect at a specific time – meaning no waiting around or missing trains, and a contactless free service to support social distancing.

Delivery through Deliveroo will also be available, allowing YO!-fans to enjoy fresh, Japanese food from the comfort of their own homes, in Bath’s many parks or anywhere in-between.

Emma Deabill, MD UK & International Restaurants at YO!, “We’re delighted to finally be able to announce our arrival in Bath, and very excited to unveil our new grab & go concept – only our second YO! TO GO in the UK. We know that people often want the convenience of fast food but without having to compromise on quality and taste, and we think our YO! TO GO format offers the perfect mix of YO! favourites and delivers on the freshness that we’re known for. “
